Patriots Draft: The Patriots trading down would make a lot of sense

April 18, 2022

Trade down. The two words Patriots fans despise this time of year. I get it. It is sexier and more fun if Bill Belichick trades up. He has done it 28 times, far more than any Patriots fan probably ever thought he has. He has also traded down 28 times. The Patriots currently have eight picks in this draft. Four of those picks are in the fifth and sixth rounds…….


Patriots Draft: 10 players I would like to see the Patriots draft

April 16, 2022

When it comes to the Patriots and the NFL Draft, you never what they are thinking when it comes to players. If you have covered the draft as long as I have however, you develop a pretty good understanding of what they are looking for in terms of body types, scheme fit and backgrounds. So , I thought I would give you a list of ten players that I think……


Patriots Draft: Top 30 Visit Tracker and Thoughts

April 6, 2022

The Patriots have had multiple players in this week for visits. We will track the visits for you and I will share my thoughts on each visit. D’Eriq King, QB/WR, Miami (Fla) 5-9 196 My thoughts: King is an explosive athlete who will play receiver at the next level, not quarterback. He is a quick twitch athlete who shows an ability to make people miss in space and accelerate vertically…….


Patriots Draft: Parker trade may force the Patriots to trade down

April 4, 2022

The trade of DeVante Parker from the Dolphins to the Patriots sent shockwaves around the NFL and New England. The Patriots got an established receiver in his prime along with a fifth round pick in exchange for a 2023 third round pick. The pick the Patriots gave up for Parker is negligible in essence because the team will receive a compensatory pick for J.C Jackson next year. The only difference……


Patriots: Lyons Mock Draft 2.0

April 1, 2022

The NFL Draft is now less than one month away. In this mock draft, things turned out quite differently than in my first mock draft. It came out balanced, with five selections on defense and four on offense. It also involved two trade downs. In the first round, I decided to stand pat and select Georgia defensive tackle Devonte Wyatt. The most famous defensive lineman from Georgia is Jordan Davis,……


Patriots Draft: Lyons Mock Draft 1.0

March 21, 2022

The NFL Draft is approaching fast, with the first round beginning on April 28th. The Patriots have several needs, both present and future that need to be addressed. In 2020 and 2021, the Patriots brought in several quality players via the draft. For the Patriots to take the next step in their rebuild, that trend will need to continue in 2022.  For this mock draft, I went with an early……


Patriots Draft: 10 offensive lineman who offer position versatility

March 17, 2022

The Patriots have to re-tool their offensive line after losing Ted Karras in free agency and the trade of Shaq Mason to the Buccaneers. Bill Belichick has addressed the offensive line in recent drafts by drafting Yodny Cajuste, Michael Onwenu and Justin Herron among others. All are still on the roster and will be in the mix to start next season. Belichick could address the offensive line in several ways,……
