Patriots Draft Spotlight: Alex Carter

Patriots Draft Spotlight: Alex Carter

Most think the Patriots are changing up the game plan in the secondary and going to zone instead of man-to-man, but it's never smart to assume anything with the Patriots. If New England wants to stick with what worked in 2014, Alex Carter of Stanford would be a strong fit in the secondary.

Patriots Draft Spotlight: Lorenzo Mauldin

Patriots Draft Spotlight: Lorenzo Mauldin

New England is looking for pass rushers, especially after losing Akeem Ayers in free agency. Lorenzo Mauldin of Louisville is a player that provides a strong combination of run-stopping and pass-rushing ability. The Patriots like complete players with great character; Mauldin fits the mold.

Patriots Sign Tight End Scott Chandler

The New England Patriots had major problems covering Scott Chandler in his time in Buffalo, so when he was released this week, the Patriots decided to add him to the roster instead of compete against him. Along with Gronkowski and Wright, the Patriots have strong depth at tight end for 2015.

Patriots Draft Spotlight: Jalen Collins

Patriots Draft Spotlight: Jalen Collins

The Patriots need cornerbacks after the departures of Darrelle Revis and Brandon Browner in free agency. New England will go back to more zone than man, but they still need to add talent to the most important position on the defense. Jalen Collins of LSU has size, speed, and the awareness to become a top cornerback in the NFL and would be an excellent selection if he's still available at #32.

Patriots Sign Ex-Browns OLB Jabaal Sheard

Patriots Sign Ex-Browns OLB Jabaal Sheard

New England finished 2014 with 41 sacks, but their pass rush was exposed against good teams in the playoffs. One of the goals of the 2015 offseason is to add defenders that can give an infusion of talent into the front seven and kick start the pass rush. Jabaal Sheard will definitely help provide that spark the Patriots need.
