Don't laugh, the Patriots always keep the future drafts in mind. I took a quick peak just now and as of now (which obviously a lot changes in a year) there seems to be a TON of guys that would fit the strongside outside linebacker mold we look for in the early going. This very well could affect what we do in this year's draft. I don't think it would deter us from taking someone like Sergio Kindle (who I have us pegged as taking at 22) because I see him as more of a weakside guy. Also keep in mind a top wr or rb (Mark Ingram) could be available when that raiders pick is on the clock! Just some food for thought for those that feel we NEED to draft for need this year.
