Bill Belichick never rests. The New England Patriots coach seemingly didn't even spend a day away from the football grind in the wake of another Super Bowl championship. Now, he's definitely back to work full time, as evidenced by his appearance at the Ohio State Buckeyes Pro Day on Thursday afternoon - one could take an obvious guess as to what he was doing there.

Pro Day props

Belichick may have simply been interested in saying hello to Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer. The two are at the top of the coaching profession at each of their respective levels and are known to have a professional admiration of one another.

While the New England Patriots were off winning a title to start 2017, the Buckeyes fell just two wins shy of hoisting a trophy of their own.

Belichick most certainly had an ulterior motive for attending the Ohio State Pro Day, though. The NFL Draft is just over a month away and typically serves as a building block for the Patriots. The team currently doesn't have any draft picks in the first two rounds, but the team likes to trade down to accumulate picks anyways. The Buckeyes are talented enough to have players littered throughout the entire draft, players the coach will certainly be scouting more in the coming weeks.

Specific targets

One Ohio State player Belichick may want to look at is center Pat Elflein.

He is an experienced and nasty center that could help improve the inside of an offensive line that struggled towards the end of the season. He's viewed as a late second-round prospect, though, so the Patriots may have to climb back up to grab him before he's taken elsewhere.

The dream for Belichick, however, may be to move all the way back into the first round to grab one of the top Ohio State cornerbacks.

Marshon Lattimore receives the brunt of the praise, but Gareon Conley is quickly flying up draft boards as well. The Patriots would be pretty pleased if they could land one of these prospects, especially in the wake of Logan Ryan's free agency departure.
