Bill Belichick and crew continue to draft the big men, shoring up their offensive line.  All our OL starters and backups are healthy so one could wonder why we'd use picks on the 300 pounders.  Well, 11 of 14 OL's have contracts expiring in '09.  The New England Patriots are doing a masterful job of putting in place insurance policies and creating leverage.

A guard and tackle at Louisville, Bussey will line up as a guard in the NFL.
