    Learning more about Croston: Undrafted free-agent offensive lineman Cole Croston is the player who got a bump up the depth chart when second-string guard Chase Farris was lost for the season with a torn Achilles. Croston, listed at 6-foot-5 and 295 pounds, played for former Belichick assistant Kirk Ferentz at the University of Iowa, and I watched him get after it in a half-line running drill. I could see how offensive line coach Dante Scarnecchia might also like his feet, as Croston moves well in a way that could fit nicely in the Patriots' zone-based scheme. Croston, who has played both guard spots on the second unit, is a player I'm interested in watching in the days to come.

    That was Mike Reiss writing the article who was impressed with Croston. I don't think Belichick mentioned anything about him.

    Not trying to nitpick, just saying that the thread title is a little misleading.
