Could D’Onta Foreman be a draft fit for the Patriots?


  • Texas RB D’Onta Foreman boasts extraordinary speed for his size. While unofficial (from his pro day), his 4.45 speed at 234 pounds is rarified air.
  • If LeGarrette Blount signs elsewhere, a larger back could be a target for the Patriots in the draft. Of the big RBs (6-foot-tall, 220-plus pounds) expected to be available in the third round or later, Foreman’s 77.9 overall grade in 2016 was the highest.
  • His breakaway percentage (percentage of yards gained on runs of 15-plus yards) was 40.7 percent, 14th among draft-eligible RBs from a Power-5 conference, and his 29 runs of 15-plus yards were the most among that group.
