Team Needs
  • CB: The Pats brought in Will Allen via free agency and still employ Devin McCourty, Kyle Arrington and Ras-I Dowling. Even so, landing a true No. 1 CB would make all of those guys better.
  • OLB: Here too, the need is not an overwhelming one. New England signed Trevor Scott and Bobby Carpenter to go with Rob Ninkovich, Jerod Mayo and Tracy White. There's depth, but a dynamic pass-rusher could take this unit up a notch.
  • DE: Mark Anderson and Andre Carter combined for 26 sacks last season. Anderson already walked via free agency and Carter is still on the market. The Pats need to replace some of that production.
