walterfootball.com lists the Patriots needs as Pass Rusher, 2 WRs, DE, S, CB, C, LB depth.
They signed Trevor Scott DE, Jonathan Fanene DE, Brandon Lloyd, Anthony Gonzalez, Deion Branch, & Donte' Stallworth as WRs, Steve Gregory S, Marquice Cole & Will Allen as CBs, Dan Koppen & Dan Connolly as Centers/Guards, and Booby Carpenter and Tracy White as LBs.
They have selected one pass rusher already in Whitney Mercilus. I doubt they would pick him though. They like to get seniors who have graduated. But Mercilus was the pick.
So who are the top players remaining and what do they do now besides trading down?
Nick Perry and Andre Branch could provide some pass rush as 3-4 OLBs or 4-3 DEs.
Jerel Worthy, Devon Still, and Kendall Reyes could provide some more depth along the defensive line.
Reuben Randle or Alshon Jeffery could also come into play here too.
Maybe a Kevin Zeitler?
For me, I think the pick has to be Harrison Smith S right here. He is not going to last much longer apparently. They need a safety too. He is a senior that has graduated (I think).
