New England Patriots 7-Round Mock Draft

Round 1 – Kevin Johnson, CB, Wake Forest I can’t embrace a CB pair of Kyle Arrington and Logan Ryan with any real certainty. I decided before making this selection that I would pick the best available cornerback.  Kevin Johnson was the best available and is a guy who could start on day one in New England. Round 2 – AJ Cann, OG, South Carolina Dan Connolly has not been...

New England Patriots re-sign WR Danny Amendola

This move was made last month, but I didn’t originally grade it because I thought it was just a pure pay cut. I don’t grade pure pay cuts because there’s no downside for a team involved so it’s a pretty boring grade. However, it does appear that Amendola was given some guarantees as part of this restructure, whereas originally he didn’t have any money guaranteed in any...

Patriots’ NFL Draft Fits: Devin Smith, Tyler Lockett Among Best Receivers

For the umpteenth offseason in a row, the New England Patriots need a wide receiver. Perhaps the 10th time will be the charm for the Patriots, who haven’t hit on a college wide receiver (a convenient way to exclude Julian Edelman, who really shouldn’t count since there was no film of him catching passes to study) since drafting Deion Branch and David Givens in the 2002 NFL draft...

How improbable was Patriots comeback Super Bowl win?

We have seen the basic statistics. The Seattle Seahawks were undefeated with Russell Wilson under center when leading by double-digits entering the fourth quarter.

Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola Might Be Too Much, Too Little For Seahawks

Brandon Browner really doesn’t like small receivers. The New England Patriots cornerback doesn’t want to touch them, because he can’t. “The little guys, the little quicker guys, I have a tendency to have a little problem with those guys because they can duck under my jam at times,” Browner said back in October. Browner likes to face bigger receivers that he can jam, trail...
