New England Patriots: 2010 NFL Mock Draft

I don't envy the Patriots' scouting crew's job—not at all.

If I learned just one thing writing this mock draft, it's that evaluating talent for the NFL draft is as tough a job as I've ever been faced with.

Teams don't look forward to having the most amount of time to evaluate talent for the draft, though—every team wants to be the last to get started.

Likewise, they have a lot of holes to fill.
