There’s little doubt the Patriots will select a wide receiver in the 2019 NFL draft. With 12 picks overall, and only one 2018 active roster receiver under contract for 2019 (Julian Edelman), it only makes sense. At the combine, two of the names most connected to the Patriots were UMass’ Andy...

The Patriots certainly will be seeking defensive linemen in the NFL draft, especially versatile ones who can play inside and outside. One of those players is Boston College defensive tackle Zach Allen, who is projected to be a Day 2 selection. Although he grew up in Connecticut as a Giants fan, he...

The NFL combine officially wrapped up on Monday with the cornerbacks and safeties going through on-field workouts, but much of the action occurred last week. With the entire league — executives, coaches, general managers, agents, and even players — in Indianapolis for several days, it was a great...

In recent years, the Patriots haven't been afraid to have a pair of brothers on the roster. The McCourtys, the Gronkowskis, the Hollisters -- a lot more than the average NFL team -- and there potentially could be another added to the list this April. That's if the Patriots select Daniel Wise, the...

Until Tom Brady's successor has taken over, it seems the Patriots will always be in the market for a quarterback. This draft is no different and one of the quarterbacks connected to the Patriots has been Will Grier out of West Virginia. In 11 games this season, he completed 67 percent of his passes...

Sunday was the final day of media availability at the NFL combine and the cornerbacks were one of the last positions to meet with the media. Cornerback doesn’t seem to be a need for New England, but they seem to have an affinity for them in recent years, which makes sense considering how important...

The Patriots will have a new leader of their defense in 2019 -- former Ohio State defensive coordinator Greg Schiano. Schiano and Bill Belichick have a good relationship that goes back years, while a few members of the unit played for him when he was the coach at Rutgers. The move isn't official,...

On Sunday, the final day of media availability at the NFL combine, the safeties addressed whatever media was left in Indy. This feels like a position the team will certainly look to target in April’s draft with Devin McCourty, Patrick Chung and Duron Harmon all getting up there in age. It seems...

All of the quarterbacks coming out in the 2019 draft want to be at least somewhat like Tom Brady. After all, he’s the greatest quarterback of all time and no matter what style of quarterback a player is, he can take some aspect of Brady’s game. But, naturally, it’s hard to actually achieve. No one...

On Saturday, the linebackers were part of the group that met with the media at the NFL combine. It doesn’t seem like linebacker is a real huge need for the team, but you never really know, especially at that position. Also, with 12 picks overall, it would only make sense that every position gets...
