Or at the very least keep that thought in the mix. And here, I'm talking first round--seems to me third round on, it's a much different ballgame, and it's more speculative. Yes, there's a need for a young safety, and additional linebacking help/depth. And a running back will be selected somewhere in the late rounds. But the Pats have a tremendous track record of selecting immediate starters in the first round, and I for one would love to see an upgrade on the offensive line. Don't get me wrong--I think it's a strength of the team, through good coaching, and general cohesiveness. But it's also true that a real stud lineman makes the rest of the line better, and it's also true that this isn't a line that just flat dominated last year. If you've got an overpowering line, it changes the whole team--you run the ball with greater ease, use the clock, make passing easier, keep your defense off the field, etc. It's the key to the whole thing. Let's bring in another top dog.
