Pats Checking Out Cincinnati DE Connor Barwin

South Florida Cincinnati Football
The Boston Herald reports that the Pats have their eye on another top NFL prospect for the April Draft – Cincy DE Connor Barwin. Here is the tidbit on Barwin:

As part of their college scouting, the Patriots are taking a close look at arguably the most Vrabel-like prospect in the draft. University of Cincinnati defensive end Connor Barwin is scheduled to visit Gillette Stadium Monday, according to his agent, Scott Smith. Barwin, who tied for the Big East lead with 11 sacks as a senior and is considered a first- or second-round possibility, could be the pass-rushing presence the Patriots are seeking to boost a third-down defense that ranked 26th last season. He was a tight end his first three years at Cincinnati.
