Flanked by his mother and high school coach, DeAndre Thompkins took a seat inside Bill O'Brien's office Friday afternoon and smiled.

The 2014 wideout out of Swansboro (N.C.) chatted with the coach for about 30 minutes. O'Brien showed off a photo of him standing alongside former New England receiver Randy Moss, and the two chatted about football and life.

"He was a guy who didn't want to push you in one direction," Thompkins said. "He was one of the those guys who wanted the best for you no matter where you're at."
