What are the Patriots Biggest Draft Needs?

With the first wave of free agency in the books, we'll start looking forward towards the NFL Draft. So what are the Patriots biggest needs?

Rob Foldy-USA TODAY Sports

We broke down the vote prior to free agency and now we're turning our focus to the draft.

First, I'm going to plug our draft section at the Pulpit where people are providing some fantastic opinions and evaluations of draft prospects.

Second, we can see how the team addressed its holes during free agency.

Need 1: Cornerback - Darrelle Revis and Brandon Browner group with Alfonzo Dennard, Logan Ryan, and Kyle Arrington to provide a formidable quintet.

Need 2: Interior Line - Ryan Wendell is back and that's really the only move worth noting this off-season.

Need 3: Defensive End - No corresponding moves.

Need 4: Defensive Tackle - Vince Wilfork and Tommy Kelly both restructured and look to be around for the upcoming season.

Need 5: Tight End - Michael Hoomanawanui signed back, so at least we got that going for us, which is nice.

So out of the big five, the Patriots greatly upgraded need #1 and left the remaining four with the status quo- which means it's likely that these translate into the top needs in the draft.

But that's up to you guys. Vote below to give your opinion on the Patriots top needs in the draft!
