The Patriots need a better season out of Gostkowski in 2013.
50. Michael Hoomanawanui, TE
Last season, Hoomanawanui saw a good amount of action, making six starts with Rob Gronkowski sidelined. He may see even more action in 2013.
49. Nick McDonald, OL
McDonald played in 12 games last season and suits as a backup at guard and center.
48. Zoltan Mesko, P
It was an alright season in 2012 for Mesko, but now he must beat out rookie Ryan Allen. It is very likely he will remain the starter.
47. Dane Fletcher, LB
Fletcher has been a decent linebacker for the Pats but missed the entire 2012 season with a torn ACL. He is a reliable backup option for the Patriots.
46. Jermaine Cunningham, DE/OLB
Fans had high hopes for Cunningham coming out of Florida, but he just never turned out the way the Pats expected. A roster spot is definitely far from a guarantee for him, especially with the addition of Jamie Collins.
45. Marquice Cole, CB
Rookie Logan Ryan and Ras-I Dowling (if he stays healthy) help to give the Pats much-needed depth at cornerback. As a result, Cole will see less playing time as the No. 5 or 6 option.
44. Michael Jenkins, WR
Jenkins is nice to have on the roster because he can help guide Aaron Dobson and Josh Boyce. There are only so many wide receiver spots open though, so somebody is going to be left in the rain.
43. LeGarrette Blount, RB
In his first season in the league Blount was impressive, topping 1,000 rushing yards. However, his carries dropped tremendously last season.
42. Lavelle Hawkins, WR
Hawkins only had five catches last season with the Tennessee Titans, but the year before he had 47. He will be battling with Michael Jenkins for a roster spot.
41. Stephen Gostkowski, K
Though Gostkowski had some pretty bad missed field goals last season, he did some things well. He matched his career high by hitting a 53-yard attempt.
