With the help of trades, the New England Patriots have six draft picks in the first three rounds of the 2001 NFL Draft.
There are so many variables to the draft this far away: final draft position, the Patriots tendency to trade picks and whether juniors will enter the draft or return to college for their final season.
Anything can happen in the draft. Sure things become busts (Ryan Leaf) and unknowns grow into legends (Tom Brady). Still, there are some positions the public knows the Patriots need to shore up. With so many picks so early in the draft the Patriots could really add some young firepower to a team that already holds the best record in the NFL.
Having that many picks also means the team can gamble on a player or two. There is also a glutton of offensive lineman and pass rushers, two things the Pats could really use.
Who are some potential targets?
