Coming off a 7-9 season that saw them miss the playoffs, the New England Patriots are in a pivotal offseason. They need to find a quarterback to build around, have to improve a lackluster passing offense, and need to prepare an aging defense for the future. Long story short, they have plenty of work ahead both in free agency and the draft.
New England is heading into the offseason with seven draft picks in hand and three more expected to come via the NFL’s compensatory process. The team will therefore have plenty of resources at its disposal to continue building the foundation for years to come. And while it remains to be seen who will eventually end up with the Patriots during the draft’s seven rounds and subsequent free agency period, there are plenty of intriguing candidates available.
