Not that I bemoan the fact that we didn't pay Daniel Graham $5 million plus a season or whatever the Broncos gave him - but I think everyone would admit that his excellent blocking was missed last season (perhaps it wouldn't have if Kyle Brady were healthy all year but regardless...) As such I think the Patriots will definately be on the lookout for a blocking TE. All-purpose blocking/pass catching TEs are likely going to go too high in the draft so I'm thinking in terms of a blocking TE specialist - and if they can average 1.5 catches a game like Graham did all the better to keep defenses at least a little bit on guard. So anyone know who is out there and when the better blocking TEs project to go in the draft? I've not analyzed that position but I'm sure someone else has. For the Patriots, I think using a 3rd or 4th round pick on one of the better blocking TEs could be just as important to the team as whoever their first round pick is. It sounds strange but I think its true given the need to thwart the pressure some teams are able to put on Brady.
