The New England Patriots seem to be kicking the tires on an unheralded signal-caller prior to the 2020 NFL Draft.
James Madison University quarterback Ben DiNucci “has had numerous video conferences” with the Patriots, according to Pro Football Network’s Tony Pauline. Of course, the video conferences come as the organization is among all NFL teams abiding by virtual visits during the coronavirus pandemic.
Here’s what Pauline wrote Monday:
Ben DiNucci of James Madison is another signal caller who could surprise, this time in the late rounds. The Pittsburgh transfer was not graded by scouts entering the season despite his terrific junior campaign. DiNucci followed that up with a senior year that included 3,441 yards passing and 29 touchdowns as well as a completion percentage of 71 percent.
For some reason, DiNucci was snubbed from all the postseason All-Star events. He has had numerous video conferences with the New England Patriots, Carolina Panthers, and Chicago Bears.
