The Patriots are one of six teams that have made deep inquiries of Iowa tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz.
The 6-foot-5, 265-pounder expects to visit New England -- and several others -- in the next month as the draft draws closer, according to Hub Arkush of ChicagoFootball.com.
Fiedorowicz ran a 4.7-second 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine. The Patriots will definitely be in the market for a tight end upgrade in this draft given the passing game limitations of their non-Gronk tight ends and the brittleness of Gronk himself.
