[caption id="" align="alignright" width="419" caption="Brandon Lloyd Patriots OTA"][/caption] Patriots QB Tom Brady came away from OTAs and minicamp impressed with WR Brandon Lloyd's skill-set. "He's got great ball skills and great body control," Brady opined. "If you get it near him, he's going to catch it. It's just a matter of sometimes it doesn't look like he's really open and then boom, he springs open on you. So sometimes you think, 'Oh he's covered,' and then you get off him and then you watch the film and you're like, 'How did he get open?' He knows what he's doing to set the guys up and he makes the move and you have to trust that he's going to beat the guy and he does. It's just really a matter of, don't really let your eyes take away from what he's doing in his route, because ultimately he's going to get open at some point." By all accounts, Lloyd had a terrific offseason, quickly settling in with the offense and his QB. Lloyd is currently the 27th WR off the board in average fantasy drafts.
