Patriots hoping to make most of 5 draft picks

The New England Patriots have some familiar needs in the NFL draft as they try to improve the secondary and at wide receiver.

In Bill I Trust: How the Patriots Won the Draft on Day One

In all of the years I have been an diehard fan of the New England Patriots, I do not recall a single time that I have called exactly what Bill Belichick will do in the first round of the draft, or any round for that matter. However, it is an extreme rarity if anybody does. Bill Belichick's drafts are similar to what the writers did to the ending of the show Lost, he purposely...

Patriots Make Out Like Bandits, Yet Again, Showing Value Always More Important than First-Round Splash

FOXBORO – Bill Belichick is a sucker for value.

All of a sudden Ryan Mallet trade talks start again

Daniel Bard's minor league pitching coach is the anti-Bill Belichick

Gordon Edes has a pretty substantial piece on Daniel Bard's return up over at ESPNBoston, and it had a quote that got me thinking. You know how Bill Belichick is beloved around the world (sans New York and Pittsburgh and Baltimore, and OK, just in New England) for trashing his team as much as possible? Like they win 49-3 and the film review is all about that one play where...

Dobson was one of the highest ranked Wide Receiver prospects, and the Patriots now get their guy to replace Brandon Lloyd He is a bigger receiver to maybe finally give Tom Brady someone to throw the ball up to on the outside.
