Post-Draft Outlook: A closer look at the Patriots' picks: 7/232 -- Julian Edelman, WR, 6-0, 198, Kent State...Why not try to find lightning a bottle in the seventh round? It's unlikely Edelman is being brought in here to be the next David Givens, but the Patriots are searching for kick-return talent with Hobbs dealt on draft day. A player such as Edelman could fill the role Matthew Slater failed to fill last year or, at the very least, provide enough competition to push the more established players. Edelman also played quarterback in college for the Flashes, so it's up in the air as to how the Patriots will do. Perhaps he's just an arm to help get the wide receivers some work in camp. - by The Sports Xchange

Draft Scout Julian Edelman News
09/21/14 - WR Julian Edelman continues to be Tom Brady's top target. After catching six passes in each of the first two games, the slot man grabbed 10 for 84 yards on Sunday, the fourth double-digit reception game of his career. As far as the struggles of the offense, he said, "If we get better every week, that's our goal. We're going to have a tough one ahead of us with Monday Night Football against Kansas City."
09/19/14 - WR Julian Edelman (back) is probable for Sunday's game vs. the Oakland Raiders.
09/18/14 - WR Julian Edelman was limited in practice with a back injury.
09/07/14 - WR Julian Edelman caught six passes for 95 yards -- all in the first half. The Dolphins shut down the Patriots' offense in the second half keeping Brady from connecting with his leading receiver. However, QB Tom Brady said it was lack of execution that halted Edelman's production. "I think our execution was just terrible," Brady said. "We just couldn't do anything offensively. We couldn't sustain drives and we couldn't get a first down."
04/07/14 - WR Julian was re-signed as an unrestricted free agent by the Patriots March 18.
