Between Kenbrell Thompkins, Danny Amendola, and Aaron Dobson, Patriots QB Tom Brady has a trio of receivers that have performed well consistently throughout training camp. It helps that we can see how Thompkins’ production in practice translates to game situations. And we should expect to see more of him with this trio. Along with rookie Josh Boyce and veteran Julian Edelman, the five wide receivers appear to be the team’s core group. Of them all, Thompkins figures to be featured more and more, which can be expected after an outstanding camp.
It sounds as if Amendola, Thompkins and Dobson are the top three WRs, with Boyce and Edelman in backup roles. Dobson and Thompkins can both be had late in drafts, so it's not a bad idea to grab both players and hope that at least one turns into an every week starter.
