MusketFIre: New England Patriots: Bold Predictions NFL Draft Wide Receiver

New England Patriots: Bold Predictions NFL Draft Wide Receiver

New England Will Once More Dip a Toe in the Wide Receiver Pool: head coach Bill Belichick knows that the wide receiver position is one of the most important positions on the roster with so much of the offense running through quarterback Tom Brady. With Brady on board at least another couple of seasons the New England front office may be looking towards 2016 and 2017 when it comes to the wide receiver position.  If there is a better player available at wide receiver Belichick will not hesitate to cut bait and improve the roster.

Seven-round New England Patriots mock draft | New England Patriots

With the 2015 NFL Draft just two days away, no one knows what Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots are planning. Do they trade up as they did in 2012? Trade down like they moved in 2013? Do they stand pat as they chose to do last year? As always it is near impossible to predict. Do the Patriots pick a cornerback high in the draft? How about a running back? Offensive line help? Defensive tackle?  Who should the New England Patriots pick in the 2015 NFL Draft?

First Stop Fantasy: Buffalo Bills – 2015 NFL Mock Draft

Buffalo Bills – 2015 NFL Mock Draft – First Stop Fantasy

The Buffalo Bills surprised many in 2014 as they were in the middle of the playoff picture for the first time in a decade before faltering down the stretch as they finished 9-7.   The Bills gave up their 2014 first round draft pick and packaged this year’s first and fourth round picks last year to move up for wide receiver Sammy Watkins. Of course, they could have kept that extra first round draft pick and grabbed Odell Beckham Jr.  The Bills need depth at linebacker and the secondary on defense and are desperate for help at quarterback and the offensive line. The tight end position also should be addressed. Who should Buffalo pick in the 2015 NFL Draft?

Musketfire: New England Patriots: Predictions NFL Draft Offensive Line

New England Patriots: Predictions NFL Draft Offensive Line

The Patriots Will Draft at Least Two if Not Three Offensive Linemen: If there is one position that inspires fear in New England Patriots fans it is the offensive line. New O-line coach Dave DeGuglielmo received heaps of criticism as the offensive line struggled in the preseason and first few weeks of 2014. With a number of quality prospects on the offensive line in the 2015 NFL Draft, there could be a top talent dropping to New England at pick #32 overall. There may not be the star power on the offensive line in the 2015 NFL Draft, there is plenty of depth.

MusketFire: New England Patriots: Bold Predictions for the NFL Draft

New England Patriots: Bold Predictions for the NFL Draft

New England Will NOT Take a Running Back in the 2015 NFL Draft: Last year the Patriots had just six running backs (counting fullback James Develin) on their 53-man roster. With Blount, Gray, Bolden, Cadet, and White likely to make the roster that leaves little room for a high draft pick. Do the Patriots take a running back to replace Shane Vereen or is James White and free agent Travaris Cadet the answer in 2015?

Vince Wilfork’s Replacement is not Coming From this Draft: The Patriots have a big order to fill in finding a replacement for defensive tackle Vince Wilfork.In 2013 the veteran was injured early in week four and the Patriots defense suffered against the run the rest of the season.
