In April’s NFL Draft, Strong was selected 127th overall. He signed a four-year, $4.37 million deal. James White, Rhamondre Stevenson, and Damien Harris will be ahead of the North Dakota State running back when the team’s training camp begins next month.
Last week at minicamp, he was even seen returning kickoffs.
Including defensive lineman Sam Roberts, running back Kevin Harris, cornerbacks Marcus and Jack Jones, offensive linemen Chasen Hines and Andrew Stueber, and cornerbacks Marcus and Jack Jones, seven of the Patriots’ ten rookies are now under contract.
Before signing Strong, they only had about $2 million in salary cap space, so some cash will need to be moved about in order for them to sign first-round picks Cole Strange, Tyquan Thornton, and Bailey Zappe in the upcoming weeks.
Of course, premium draft picks frequently put off signing contracts until the final few days before training camp begins in late July.
Strong, who may be undersized but is big on quickness and tenacity, seems like an ideal choice for the Patriots and might see time as a third-down back in the vein of a quicker Rex Burkhead or maybe Darren McFadden.
Strong, who weighs 205 pounds and is 5-11, is a capable athlete who runs with good body control and above-average straight-line speed. He has demonstrated adequate hands out of the backfield in the throwing game.
When he receives the ball on a check-down, he poses a real threat in space. He is physically strong and willing to defend the pass, but with professional instruction, he should get better at it.
