How do you make one of the best teams in the entire NFL even better after a 14-2 regular season?
That is the question that New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick faces heading into the offseason. This season saw his team dominate the league on offense once again, while their defense was the Achilles heel in their divisional round playoff loss to the New York Jets.
The team will have to address weaknesses at the wide receiver, cornerback and offensive lineman positions, while also figuring out a way to put pressure on opponent’s quarterbacks if they want to retake their throne on top of the football world next season.
The team has enough pieces already in place to have another great regular season, but if they could just add a few more quality players in the draft, there is no reason that this team shouldn’t be the last team standing come next February.
New England also has a ton of great draft choices to work with, as they have six selections during the first three rounds of the NFL draft and nine draft picks in total.
The following are ten players who the Patriots should look to add to improve their team in April’s upcoming draft. These players are not just in found the first few rounds, but in the later rounds too.
