2009 Draft Wishlist: New England Patriots Draft Prospects

The Patriots don't have alot of holes this offseason, but need to add youth to many positions and mostly on defense. The offense isn't as perfect as some people would like to think either, their are a lot of positions that could use some young playmakers.

Chris Baker is a band-aid at tight end for the next few years because Benjamin Watson is not a blocking tight end and is more of a mismatch in the passing game for linebackers and safeties.

The offensive line needs to be upgraded as well, Nick Kaczur is going to get Tom Brady killed and Ryan O'Callaghan has not played up to his ability yet.

Running back is also a concern because many believe this will be Lawrence Maroney's last year on the team unless he plays to his ability for being a high first round draft pick.

The Patriots also need to find a third down running back to replace Kevin Faulk in the near future.

Outside linebacker is a big concern with the departure of Mike Vrabel and Adalius Thomas' injuries. Thomas has played well, but many fans believe that he could play better.

The defensive line could also use some young playmakers to add depth to the line.
