Patriots Addressed All Their Needs in The Draft
Bill Belichick did not attack the 2022 NFL Draft the way I would have, however it’s fair to say that he addressed every need the team had. Heading into the Draft I had identified the New England Patriots biggest needs as: interior offensive line, cornerback, linebacker, and wide receiver. Based on some conversations I had on day three of the Draft, the Patriots are a lot more comfortable at linebacker than I thought the were. So assuming that wasn’t a pressing need, Belichick addressed everything. The Patriots also said they wanted to get faster, and they got faster. In fact New England has the fastest wide receiver and running back in the draft. They also added a fast cornerback. So the Patriots did their job.
