Which New England Patriots players are people sleeping on that will surprise the NFL in 2018?

1) Malcolm Mitchell, WR

Mitchell was drafted in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft and after a decent rookie year where he hauled in 32 receptions for 401 yards and four touchdowns, he missed all of 2017. Mitchell is a very intelligent player and proved to be a favorite of Brady's in 2016. With Brandin Cooks gone, Mitchell has a chance to emerge this season.

2) Jordan Matthews, WR

Matthews was productive with the Eagles in his first three seasons recording at least 67 receptions, and 800 yards. He had 19 touchdowns in his first three seasons and will look to turn the page after a poor 2017 season with the Bills. Last season he had 25 receptions for 282 yards and one touchdown. He is a solid receiver over the middle of the field, which is Brady's bread and butter.

3) Keion Crossen, CB

A pro day to remember from Keion Crossen where he ran a 4.32 forty yard dash, posted a 10'11" broad jump, a vertical of 39.5 inches and a three-cone drill of 6.67. Those numbers would have put him top three at the 2018 NFL combine. Crossen was selected in the seventh round of the 2018 NFL Draft and is ready to make an impact for the Patriots.
