Brandon LaFell has a lot of potential in New England. An odd man out in Carolina, LaFell showed a lot of flashes last season while with the Patriots. Lining up outside, LaFell is a solid counterpart Julian Edleman and has taken the number one spot from Danny Amendola. A 2010 3rd round pick out of Louisiana State, LaFell spent his first four NFL season with the Carolina Panthers before joining New England during the 2014 off-season as a free agent.

In 2014, LaFell had his best season as a prorecording 74 catches for 953 yards and 7 touchdowns. He is no stranger to championships.
