  • Adam Rank ( Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2022 takeaways. No. 6. Richard Seymour helps set the record straight. ‘the early years of the Patriots’ dynasty are still underrepresented in the Hall of Fame. Seymour’s induction helps rectify that. That phase of the dynasty was built on defense, and there is no doubt Seymour, who played with the Pats from 2001 to ‘08, was one of the most influential members of that unit, which ranked in the top six or better in scoring in the seasons when New England won Super Bowls XXXVI, XXXVIII and XXXIX.’

  • Mello (TheDraftScout) Situational mock draft: A look at what teams might do - not who they might do. 21. Patriots: The Patriots have done a fantastic job of finding veteran receivers and have recently missed on drafting receivers. But it might be time to try again. N’Keal Harry has not lived up to his draft position so the Patriots still need to find Mac Jones and a good, young, target to build with. I could also see Belichick taking defense because, well that’s what they do in New England.
