I don't recall the link, but an article -- perhaps at Grantland -- pointed out last year that the Patriots were mixing 1- and 2-gap concepts into the same sets, and more than just by having single "elephant" in an otherwise 2-gap system. That makes me wonder -- is BB perhaps looking to load up on players who individually are versatile between 1- and 2-gap assignments? That could be part of explaining the Deaderick & Love cuts. Even though Wilfork hasn't penetrated many backfields in years (please, skip the Bianca jokes), I imagine he could a lot better than Love or Deaderick. Meanwhile, we have guys who feel like natural 1-gappers -- e.g. Jones -- used in BB's system last year.
