NFL.com Draft Analyst Chad Reuter lists Richmond QB Kyle Lauletta as a potential fit for the New England Patriots.

Rueter mentions Lauletta as a possible target at some point in the 2nd-3rd round this April. Keep in mind that the Patriots own the 49ers second after trading Jimmy Garoppolo, he himself a former small-school signal-caller. " Lauletta starred in the Senior Bowl last week, and I'm not the only draft analyst who came away from the game thinking he'd be a fine fit for New England," Reuter writes. The former FCS star has gone from relative unknown to a potential heir apparent prospect for Tom Brady in the span of about two weeks.

Walter Football's Walter Cherepinsky believes that Richmond QB Kyle Lauletta could go in the second round of the 2018 NFL Draft.

Lauletta (6'2/217) was unquestionably the most pleasant surprise of the Senior Bowl game; taking home the MVP and throwing for three touchdowns on a variety of throws. The FCS star didn't earn quite as high of marks in practice, but reports were positive there, as well. "The Richmond product has average size and arm strength, but he's accurate and smart," Cherepinsky writes. "He was seen as a mid-round prospect before the Senior Bowl, but it wouldn't surprise me if a team desperate for a quarterback took him in the second round."

Richmond QB Kyle Lauletta completed 8-of-12 passes for 198 yards and three touchdowns on Saturday for the South in a 45-16 victory over the North in the Reese's Senior Bowl.

Lauletta ended up being the game's MVP for his performance. There were concerns about the former FCS quarterback's arm strength, but he certainly looked like he had an NFL-caliber arm on Saturday. He showed that he can make all sorts of throws in the game, completing one touchdown on a bomb, one on a slant, and one on a scramble near the end zone. Lauletta was given a fourth-to-fifth round grade by Todd McShay for his strong play, and he didn't do anything in the Senior Bowl to suggest that grade was inaccurate.

ESPN's Todd McShay ranked Richmond QB Kyle Lauletta as the fourth best QB during Senior Bowl practice.

Lauletta ranks only behind Wyoming's Josh Allen, Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield and Washington's Luke Falk. McShay said earlier in the week that he wanted to see how Lauletta handled the "higher competition," and it appears he did it well enough. "Nothing jumps out about Lauletta; he has an average arm, average size (6-2, 217) and a slightly funky release," McShay writes. "But the more you watch him, the more you appreciate his efficiency. He picked up things well from Texans coach Bill O'Brien and gained confidence as the week progressed." McShay also notes that he believes Lauletta currently projects as a signal-caller who will go in the fourth or fifth round.

ESPN's Todd McShay wants to see how Richmond QB Kyle Lauletta handles the higher competition this week at the Reese's Senior Bowl.

Lauletta (6'3/217) put up quality numbers during his time at Richmond, but didn't exactly face NFL competition. McShay compares his scenario to former Delaware/current 49er Jimmy Garoppolo, who saw his stock soar with a strong Senior Bowl. "It was sometimes difficult to gauge the velocity of Lauletta's drive throws on tape, so I'm also interested to see his arm strength in person," McShay writes. This could be one of several quarterbacks to keep an eye on this week.

Richmond senior QB Kyle Lauletta accepted an invitation to the Reese's Senior Bowl.

Lauletta (6'3/217) has been among the most productive quarterbacks at the FCS level over the past three seasons. The senior signal-caller has thrown for 3,727 yards with 28 touchdowns so far in 2017, while throwing 12 interceptions. He should get a chance to show off his arm in the Senior Bowl practices and games, and hopefully get a chance to be selected before the end of day three with a positive showing.

Patriots signed Richmond S David Jones.

Jones (6’1/205) led the FCS in interceptions (9) as a junior only to miss eight games with a fractured forearm as a senior. He still finished his career with 14 picks and rehabbed his stock at the Spiders’ Pro Day, blazing 4.43 with an explosive 10-foot-9 broad jump. Highly rated by NFL scouts before his injury-ruined final season, Jones is a ballhawk with NFL-level athleticism and then some. He’s a sleeper to become a Tashaun Gipson-style takeaway specialist at free safety.

Richmond S David Jones is expected to visit the Seahawks, according to Tony Pauline.

Jones met with the Rams, Dolphins, Jaguars and Seahawks at Richmond's pro day. Early on it appears the Seahawks are checking in with safeties and nose tackles. Jones finished with nine interceptions in 2015.

Richmond junior QB Kyle Lauletta threw for 337 yards and three touchdowns on nearly 70 percent completions in Saturday's 37-20 upset win at Virginia.

Last year, Lauletta threw for over 3,500 yards in leading the Spiders to a 10-4 record and the FCS semifinals. "Keep an eye on my fellow Spider!" suggested ESPN draft analyst and Richmond alum Todd McShay.

NFL Media's Gil Brandt says Richmond T Nick Ritcher "has a chance to get drafted" thanks to his Pro Day performance.

That workout, deemed "excellent" by Brandt, came last month. The 6-foot-5 1/8, 299-pound Ritcher's father Jim played 16 years in the NFL. Two of Nick's brothers are NFL scouts.

At his Pro Day event last week, Richmond RB Jacobi Green met with the Eagles.

That dispatch comes from TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline, who likes both Green and teammate WR Reggie Diggs as Day 3 sleepers. Checking in at 5-foot-9, 204 pounds, the bowling ball-profiled Green threw up 23 reps on the bench and clocked a 4.54 second forty and a 7.02 second 3-cone at the Pro Day event.

Per TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline, Richmond WR Reggie Diggs met with the Philadelphia Eagles and Oakland Raiders last week at his Pro Day event.

Diggs measured into the event at 6-foot-3 and 214 pounds with an arm length of 32 5/8 inches. He leaped to a 38.5 inch vertical and a 11 foot broad jump. Diggs added a 4.55 second 40 and a 3-cone of 7.05 seconds. Diggs was tremendously productive at the FCS level. He's on the Day 3 radar. For what it's worth, Pauline says Diggs is one of his favorite sleepers.

Richmond senior RB Jacobi Green accepted an invite to the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.

Green's a nice under-the-radar name to watch moving into the later rounds of the 2016 NFL Draft. While he might slide through to become an undrafted free agent, his numbers this past season alone should give teams pause before they pass. After putting in sophomore and junior seasons of fewer than 700 yards, the 5-foot-9, 192-pounder exploded for 1,595 yards (6.0 YPC average) and 21 touchdowns. He also caught 28 passes for 359 yards and a score. He'll look to keep up this stellar output in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl on January 23.

Richmond senior DB David Jones "will get a shot in an NFL training camp as an undrafted free agent," believes ESPN's Todd McShay.

In his last game against William & Mary, Jones had 10 tackles and an interception to help Richmond clinch an automatic bid into the FCS playoffs. Jones has NFL size (6-foot-1, 187 pounds) and is up to eight interceptions on the year.

ESPN's Todd McShay has been impressed with Richmond senior RB Jacobi Green.

The analyst concedes that a part of his interest in the prospect is related to homerism (McShay went to Richmond), but the 5-foot-9, 192-pound Green is worth keeping an eye on because he'll be given a chance to make an NFL roster next summer. He slapped down 236 yards and five touchdowns on the road at James Madison with College Gameday in town on Saturday.
