The Patriots will look to the draft to fix their problems.

Another offseason, another NFL draft.

Yes, it's no shocker that the Indianapolis Colts will take Stanford quarterback Andrew luck with the No. 1 overall pick, but everything else is still up in the air.

The New England Patriots in particular have some glaring holes that need to be addressed. The 2012 draft will be an opportunity to find the playmakers of the future, while also adding depth to their roster.

With four picks in the first two rounds, there will be plenty of high caliber prospects available for the Patriots.

New England needs help at the following positions:

  • Defensive End
  • Cornerback
  • Free Safety
  • Wide Receiver
  • Center
  • Linebacker
  • Guard

With seven needs and only six draft picks, something's got to give. Head coach Bill Belichick has been known for stockpiling future draft picks, so it would be no surprise if the Patriots trade out of one of their spots.

Yet, as far as mock drafts are concerned, you have to play the cards you're dealt.

The following guys should be on the Patriots radar come draft day.
