New England Patriots, FLAT: The Patriots had a quiet draft. While they did address positions of need, they also failed to make any standout selections. That combined with no first round talent coming in means that the Patriots stock is simply flat. That's okay though, a flat stock at the top of the division isn't a bad thing. Miami Dolphins, UP: The move to trade up for defensive end Dion Jordan will be debated until statistics give us a good answer as to whether it was a good pick or not. Regardless of the merits of the trade, Jordan will improve the Dolphins defensive front. A defensive heavy draft should give the Dolphins a respectable unit to compliment the offense. For the first time in a long time, the Dolphins have a clear path in front of them. New York Jets, DOWN: If the Jets start Mark Sanchez, the selection of Geno Smith is a wasted high pick that could have been better spent on an impact player. If Geno Smith starts, it means that the Jets dumped a lot of...

Aaron Dobson, Josh Boyce, T.J. Moe Are Prepared for Patriots’ Tough Offensive Playbook

FOXBORO, Mass. — For years now, rookie and veteran wide receivers have come to Foxboro and had difficulty picking up the Patriots’ playbook. Fortunately, rookies Aaron Dobson, Josh Boyce and T.J.

Jamie Collins Posterizes Unsuspecting Opponent During Southern Miss Basketball Intramurals (Video)

When the Patriots drafted Southern Miss linebacker Jamie Collins, a quick Google search would reveal he’s a tremendous athlete. At nearly 6-foot-4 and 250 pounds, Collins ran a 4.6-second 40-yard dash,  jumped 41 1/2 inches in the vertical leap and set an NFL combine record with his 11-foot-7 broad jump. But further Googling and Youtubing showed that Collins isn’t just a demon...

Rookie Expectations: Aaron Dobson

I am going to be completely honest, I had only heard of this guy a couple times before the Patriots drafted him. However, once WR Aaron Dobson was selected by the Pats with the 59th overall selection in the second round, I was pumped. This pick seemed to come out of nowhere, but needless to say we should all be excited. With the excitement comes some expectations. It is obviously...

Patriots Use of Rob Gronkowski, Aaron Hernandez Creating Pattern for Offenses Around NFL

The NFL is a league based on patterns and trends. Coaches, players and front-office personnel are constantly studying the successes of certain teams to try and create their own blueprint. The Patriots always seem to be one of those test cases. First, it was the aggressive press coverage of their cornerbacks, which forced the league to more strictly enforce the five-yard illegal contact...
