Ohio University wide receiver Taylor Price opened eyes throughout the pre-draft process, and now he’s done something worthy of notice as a pro.
Price was the first third-round pick to sign on Tuesday, when he inked a four-year deal with the Patriots, according to Ian Rapoport of the Boston Herald and ESPN’s Adam Shefter. The deal is worth $3.35 million over four years.
I got a chance to watch some drills from inside the combine, and Price stood out in his workout for his hands, in addition to his size and speed. He’ll be competing with Torry Holt, David Patten, and Brandon Tate for snaps in New England while Wes Welker gets healthy.
