There's no doubt the Patriots are interested in wide receivers both through the draft and in free agency. This is why it's no surprise they are meeting with several at pro days across the country.

According to NFL Media's Aditi Kinkhabwala, the Patriots were among the teams to meet with West Virginia wide outs Gary Jennings and David Sills prior to their pro day on Thursday. New England director of player personnel Nick Caserio was present at the pro day, so there's a chance he was part of the meeting.

Sills used to be a quarterback, but moved to wide receiver for his final two years at the school. As a senior, he caught 65 passes for 986 yards and 15 touchdowns. Overall, he caught 33 touchdowns, which is pretty impressive considering the position change. 

Jennings had a solid career with his best year coming as a junior when he finished with 97 receptions for 1,096 yards, but had only one touchdown. That improved dramatically last season when he had 917 yards and 13 touchdowns.

This will not be the last time we hear of the Patriots meeting with receivers prior to the draft.
