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 rule. Soon after came the versatile passing game based around receiver Wes Welker, and then, of course, the fast-paced approach that yielded a near NFL record 74.4 offensive snaps per game in 2012.
This offseason, most of the attention seems focused on the read-option offense that hit the NFL last season. But, even with that fad taking center stage, some teams continue to use the Patriots as the framework of their rebuilding plan.
This time it’s the Patriots tight ends that are being mimicked, as teams look to find their own Aaron Hernandez and Rob Gronkowski clones.
Gronk’s pure power and red zone pr...

Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports believes that free agent defensive end John Abraham would be a good fit for the New England Patriots.
He made his tour of visits, and he’s been pretty firm with his asking price, but this still leaps out as a Bill Belichick move to me. He is always collecting veteran edge players who can add situational help, and the Pats are always in the hunt....
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...

With Brandon Lloyd and Wes Welker gone, Tom Brady needs someone to throw to, right?
The Welker role was famously filled by free agent Danny Amendola, who is expected to play Z receiver in two-wide sets and slot receiver in three-wide sets. But Lloyd’s role in the offense will be the best competition to watch as rookie mini-camp, OTAs and training camp draw near.
There are four...
