His stats last year were impressive...given the position he was in

Not really. It was all running. His throwing was atrocious.

But, maybe with a full offseason to workout with the team, not having to deal with Covid and May e if they can get him some nfl caliber receivers, he may be serviceable.

Sports Illustrated's Albert Breer reports Patriots head coach Bill Belichick ignored team scouts who wanted to draft A.J. Brown and Deebo Samuel over N'Keal Harry in the 2019 NFL Draft.
The revelation comes a week after Patriots owner Bob Kraft criticized the team's draft results. Belichick reportedly ignored his personnel department and went with Harry as the 32nd pick based on Harry’s performance during a non-workout visit and Belichick’s relationship with Harry’s college coach, Todd Graham. The rest is history: Harry has been a non-entity in the New England offense -- catching 45 passes for 414 yards in two seasons -- while Brown is among the league's most explosive wideouts and Samuel is an electric after-the-catch weapon and a staple of the 49ers offense. Breer said Kraft’s recent reference to a “different approach” to the NFL Draft indicates Belichick is now listening more to his personnel department.


100% believable

i should have clarified i was talking about Agholor with that comment responding to a post at the end of last page. To me, Cam looked like he loss significant arm strength last year and i'm not sure he will get it back.

Yeah, I would say he does this very regularly.
BB the GM is great at his job, might be the best in the league - though again, with the caveat of some not good FA signings/overpayments also, including this off-season.
BB the drafter is below average at best and if it were someone else giving BB these results, they would have been fired a long time ago.
