Defensive end Derek Rivers Remember him? The Patriots’ top pick in the 2017 NFL Draft is back to full strength after missing his entire rookie season with a torn ACL. Rivers hasn’t seen much time with the top defense thus far, but he could play his way into the pass rush rotation with a strong preseason. Cornerbacks Jason McCourty, Duke Dawson and J.C. Jackson McCourty is battling with Eric Rowe for the right to replace Malcolm Butler in the starting lineup, and while he’s played well this summer, Rowe has taken the vast majority of the first-team snaps. Dawson, a second-round draft pick, has been New England’s top slot corner in camp but hasn’t wowed anyone with his play in practice. Jackson, one of the stars of spring practice, is looking to become the latest undrafted rookie corner to crack the Patriots’ 53-man roster. Offensive tackles Trent Brown and Isaiah Wynn Brown has garnered rave reviews thus far and appears to have a firm grasp on the starting left tackle spot. This will be his first game in a Patriots uniform. It’ll also be interesting to see how Wynn, New England’s top draft pick, fares against an NFL pass rush. He’s played almost exclusively with the second team thus far. Wide receivers Eric Decker, Cordarrelle Patterson, Braxton Berrios and Riley McCarron It’s not yet clear whether Decker, who just joined the team last week, will be ready to suit up for this game, but fellow newcomers Patterson and Berrios and 2017 practice squadder McCarron all should be out there. Patterson has made some phenomenal catches in camp, and we’ll get to see what he can do in the NFL’s new kickoff format. Slot receivers Berrios and McCarron have begun to flash a bit more in practice over the past week and are among the several players competing for punt return duties.
