With free agency coming to a halt, the Patriots still have holes to fill before the season starts. OLB, TE, DE, ILB, WR, RB, CB are all areas that could use some youth and/or depth.
With the draft a little more than a week away, the Patriots have some options in this deep draft. With 12 total picks this year they should be able to fill some holes and add youth to their aging roster.
The breakdown of the picks: 22nd, 44th, 47th, 53rd, 119th, 190th, 205th, 229th, 231st, 247th, 248th, 250th. With four picks in the top 120 they need to go after talent but should try to fill one of the areas of need. With their two sixth round picks and five picks in round seven they should look to draft for depth and find players of value and as we all know they are good at getting the most out of their late round picks.
