Jakobi Meyers, WR
I’m torn on this because on one hand, I think that the Patriots might really like Meyers. Last season he was the 4th most targetted WR on New England’s roster despite being a rookie UDFA.
On the other hand, a lot of that had to do with the opportunity created by Josh Gordon coming in late, Mohamed Sanu not being traded until the deadline, and N’Keal Harry’s inability to stay healthy.

Not only are his numbers a little bit inflated, but so much of being a WR coming off of the bench is the chemistry you are able to create with your QB. With a QB switch coming (and maybe more than one once the season starts) how much chemistry can your WR4 get with multiple QBs at the same time in very limited reps?
In the end, I think that Meyers will make the roster, but not as a crucial piece and I think the Patriots would be equally interested to have Jeff Thomas make the roster if they could find a trade partner for Meyers.
The Titans are different because 4 of their top 5 WR spots are set, but the question is whether the roster is better with the WR4/5 being Kalif Raymond/Cam Batson or Jakobi Meyers/Kalif Raymond, and I prefer the second option.
Meyers is a solid player who is probably quicker then Tajae Sharpe was for the Titans last season, though I think Sharpe probably had a little bit better body control. Still, Meyers is a great option to have coming off your bench.
