Dontavius Russell, our 76th ranked defensive tackle, is best suited to
be a depth backup. We project he will end up with the New England Patriots because they
could use a player of this quality after losing Daniel Ekuale for an extended period of time. The Patriots
currently have 3 healthy defensive tackles, and none are
rated better than Russell.
The Patriots currently have no
defensive tackles under contract beyond the 2027 season,
so Russell might get longer than a one year deal with the team.
