New England Patriots 2023 Draft Selection Round 6

updated 30 Apr 2023

WR Kayshon Boutte

5'11", 195 lb

Despite a somewhat inconsistent 2022 season, Boutte's physical attributes, including his size and speed, combined with impressive performances in his first two seasons, may be enough to compensate. He possesses the ability to play both inside and outside positions and is equally adept at running routes in short or long distances. While his routes at LSU were simple, Boutte's natural athleticism allows for the possibility of expanding his abilities with more attention to detail. Unfortunately, his ball skills leave something to be desired, as he has exhibited too many drops on tape. Nevertheless, he has demonstrated talent with the ball in his possession and has the potential for making big plays if he can revert to his previous form. If he can avoid any further issues with his right ankle, Boutte has a good chance of securing a WR2/3 role in the future.

Kayshon Boutte Scouting Report

P Bryce Baringer

With a powerful and commanding leg, this punter has the ability to significantly alter the field position in his team's favor. However, he currently resembles a power pitcher who can throw fastballs at high speeds but struggles with accuracy. Although he possesses the skillset to perform well at the next level, he may need to focus on reducing his power and instead prioritize generating better hang-time and accuracy on shorter kicks to truly impress NFL teams.

WR Demario Douglas

5'8" 179 lbs

Shifty player with great hands, knows how to find the football.

DB Ameer Speed

Ameer Speed lives up to his name, at 6'3", 210 lbs he runs 4.33 40 yard dash. With that said he couldn't get on the field much and didn't know how to use it.
