I would be fine if the first 3 picks are used on a quarterback or two. For Year 3 of the Belichick Plan, we need a starter and a backup.
===============
Sure, we will draft the usual suspects late: an OG, an OT, a CB, a WR and a STer.
=================
My expectation is that free agency (or a trade) will be used to acquire a RB, CB and an IOL. We are replacing White, Burkhead, McCourty and Eluemunor. I have Karras upgrading Ferentz and Mills replacing Brooks.

I suppose we could count on Gimore AND Jackson AND Williams. It still makes sense to bring in a backup or camp compeitition.

Quite right. At this stage the Pats' needs are quarterback, quarterback and quarterback.

(Unfortunately, there looks to be a big fall-off after the Big Four and Kiper thinks that they could go 1-4 (Carolina moving up to 3 in a trade with Miami). That sounds plausible to me. )

they need a RB if Burkhead and White are gone

they need interior DL, interior LB, CB,

the Pats could use a QB, but they won't find an immediate starter in the draft.

We have other priorities, but QB should be the main focus and everything else should be considered luxury.

Patriots need a DT and a MLB
They restocked the whole DT position.
GOD
Anderson
Cowart
Davis
Adams

and Wise on 3rd down.
I mean I’ll never argue with drafting a DL or OL on day3 but I don’t see the needs.

At LB we have 4 spots for any combination of ILB/OLB/DE in our nickel base.

HT
KVN
Judon
will be 3 of the 4 90% of the time so that leaves one spot for

winovich
Uche
McMillan
Jennings
Bentley
To share.

I don’t see a lot of room

Rotational Player and Threatening Starter's Job
The key thing is if you don't have a real quarterback you don't [expletive deleted] matter, period, end of discussion.

They still need other players obviously but if they get great players at every position and have no QB, 2021 is still a lost cause and we're talking about waiting until 2022 or 2023 to matter again.

Any good, contributing football players.

I think it would be in our best interest to get an elite linebacker if there is one available. It is hard to find a Mayo or Kuechly like talent later in the draft.

Other than QB, I have quite a few other priorities in the draft.
QB
Vince Wilfork 2.0
Field stretching WR which I know Bill cannot bring himself to drafting for a multitude of reasons I have already shared.
Run stuffing ILB

This would be a win to me.

They need to draft a linebacker to replace HT with the 15th pick. Then you can draft 6 straight QBs. One of them has to make the team.

Those DTs are just guys, they need a difference maker...same with MLB which they have 2...Bentley, hightower...and then the new guy what's his name...so 3...but they can use an upgrade.

BB hasn’t taken a first round QB. Anything can happen, but I don’t think it’s going to change this year.

His name is Van Noy, shouldn't be difficult to remember.
