According to Mike Reiss of ESPNBoston.com, Patriots rookie wide receiver Kembrell Thompkins has continued to take first-team reps at practice.
Patriots rookie receiver Kenbrell Thompkins has consistently taken top repetitions and Tuesday was no different. He made one of the most remarkable catches of training camp, reaching around Buccaneers cornerback Rashaan Melvin and snaring a one-handed pass from Tom Brady by pinning it against Melvin’s back. Thompkins’ consistency has been impressive throughout camp. On the Buccaneers side, it was impressive watching receiver Vincent Jackson.
With Thompkins along with another rookie in Aaron Dobson, the Patriots might have have a pair of good young receivers on their roster.
