NFL draft prospect WR Hunter Renfrow had a dream about Tom Brady

Where a prospect lands in the NFL draft depends on a seemingly limitless number of factors. But wide receiver Hunter Renfrow may have found an easier way to determine his fate.

Renfrow, a 5-foot-10 receiver from Clemson, recently told Scott Keepfer of The Greenville News he had a dream he was drafted by the Patriots, and was meeting with quarterback Tom Brady.

"I would love to be a Patriot. Whoever gets me, that would be awesome," Renfrow told Keepfer. "I had a dream I was a Patriot last night. It was the weirdest thing. I went to sleep and ... I was having a meeting with Tom Brady."

Renfrow's dreams may well prove prophetic. 

The receiver has been pegged as a potential draft target for the Patriots, who need help at wide receiver. While Renfrow is not expected to be drafted high, if at all, he has several characteristics that fit the bill of slot receivers that New England tends to be interested in: short, fast, and an ability to get open quickly.

 

Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola, Chris Harper and Austin Collie fill out the laundry list of Patriots past and present who fit the mold of Renfrow.
