04:28 PM ET 05.05 | Greg Schiano and Bill Belichick have long made it clear they respect each other's coaching styles and strategies, one of the most notable bromances in the often staid professional coaching fraternity. They're finally moving past flirting and getting together for a meetup, as Schiano's Buccaneers staff will visit Belichick's Patriots staff in Foxboro to talk shop. They're not really exchanging coaching details -- just strategies on how to organize a team's schedule and other logistical aspects of running a team. The Buccaneers and Patriots are supposed to meet in Week 3 of the regular season, making it odd that the two would be willing to disclose any information that would improve the opposition. Schiano and Belichick's past dalliances include several joint practices held in the 2012 preseason when the teams met in Tampa Bay. Three of Belichick's seven picks in this year's draft were Schiano-coached players out of Rutgers, as was an additional undrafted free agent the team picked up.

I'd love to be in the film room as the Pats are assigning a mid-round draft grade to Duron Harmon when no one else has even given him a draftable grade. Wonder what they saw that they were so high on.
