Today we preview potential Pats picks for defensive linemen, one of the team’s biggest areas of need (emphasis on “biggest”).
While New England boasts human doorstops Vince Wilfork and Kyle Love, the team has had a difficult time tracking down a long-term solution for a third upfront defender. Veterans like Gerard Warren have filled in well, but the Pats need a young run-stopper who can occupy blockers and provide consistent pressure.
The Patriots have two picks in the first round (27 and 31 overall), two in the second (48, 62), one in the third (93) and one in the fourth (126). They traded away their fifth-, sixth- and seventh-round picks.

BOSTON -- Now that tight end Rob Gronkowski has been officially eliminated from the Madden 13 cover bracket, he can admit what many Patriots fans were frantically thinking.

The 2012 NFL schedule was released Tuesday night and it seems to be a positive slate for the New England Patriots. They are currently 8-1 AFC favorites at Bovada to win Super Bowl XLVII next February in New Orleans.

Our series on Patriots positions of need marches on with an inspection of available running backs. Though the team lost free agent Benjarvus Green-Ellis, second-year players Stevan Ridley and Shane Vereen look primed to pick up much of that production.
New England returns Lil’ Danny Woodhead and adds fullbacks Spencer Larsen and Tony Fiammetta, the most fullbacks...
I just got back from an interesting shopping experience in Evanston, IL. By chance I saw a sign for a book sale and for me that’s like a sign promoting free donuts anywhere near Vince Wilfork. So I stepped in and it was a mecca of sports themed books! So I started perusing and grabbing and loading up boxes and as I perused and grabbed I started talking with Scott Clayborne who...
Perhaps the most notable free agent signing that the Bengals made this year was in former New England Patriots running back, BenJarvus Green-Ellis. He has been a productive NFL back since going undrafted four years ago, but unfortunately has been stuck with the label of not being a "breakaway back" or being capable of generating big plays. One thing that can't be...
