Analyzing Jalen “Teez” Tabor’s Fit with Patriots


As the deadline to sign Malcolm Butler to his franchise tender nears with no word of pen to paper, the New England Patriots may have to start looking for a new cornerback.

Jalen Tabor (nicknamed “Teez”), is a two time first team All ACC cornerback who only allowed a quarterback rating of 41.2 in his entire college career.

Patriots head coach Bill Belichick has always been a fan of Florida Gator prospects but has missed with draft picks Brandon Spikes, Jermaine Cunningham, and Dominique Easley.

Is the five time Super Bowl winning head coach looking for a possible reverse to his Gator curse?

Interest in the Florida cornerback became legitimized when the Patriots held Tabor for a visit this week. But with all the credentials that make Tabor such a great prospect, what is holding him back?

Tabor has dealt with numerous off the field issues with suspensions for getting into a fight with a teammate and declining to take a required drug test and taking to twitter to criticize the Florida Athletic Department.

Despite all the off field issues and questions about his speed after a subpar 4.52 seconds in the 40 yard evaluation at the NFL Scouting Combine . The 6 foot, 199 pound cornerback Tabor is the type of player the Patriots are looking for with currently no early round draft-picks.
