As they reach the tail-end of their draft preparations, the Patriots are scheduled to hold private workouts with defensive tackles Chris Baker (Hampton) and Terrance Knighton (Temple) at Windsor (Conn.) High School tomorrow, according to the agents for both players.
Both Baker (6-2, 326) and Knighton (6-3, 321) are from Windsor, Conn., and are considered mid-to-late round prospects, according to the Pro Football Weekly Draft Guide.
The PFW Draft Guide calls Baker "a short-area, between-the-tackles plugger who might be best as a two-down run defender playing in a rotation", while Knighton is a "big body who came on late, improved his stock as a senior and likely projects as a 3-4 defensive end."
Private workouts are just a small part of the overall scouting process. Often times, they are used as a final piece of the puzzle before placing a grade on a player.
