Porter has never played a down of organized football in college, high school or otherwise.
Patriots head coach Bill Belichick had this to say about Porter:
“We’re just kind of taking it day by day and see how he does in different drills and in different situations. (We’ll) just take it one step at a time,” Belichick said. “I don’t really have any expectations other than (that). As long as he’s improving we’ll keep working with him and see maybe where the best fit for him may be.
“I don’t really know that until we’ve had a chance to see him play a little bit. But he’s certainly a good looking kid. He’s got a good frame. He’s got good balance, we know that from wrestling.”
