Bill Belichick let J.C Jackson walk in free agency but he has spent some money to fortify the cornerback position by signing veteran Terrance Mitchell and re-signing old friend Malcolm Butler.

Patriots Draft: Need #5: Defensive Tackle

April 23, 2022

The Patriots inability to consistently stop the run has been an issue in recent years. Bill Belichick attempted to address the issue in free agency last off-season by signing free agents Davon Godchaux, Henry Anderson, re-signing Lawrence Guy and drafting Christian Barmore. The moves paid off early as the Patriots were better against the run but as the season wore on, they struggled again. Defensive tackle is still a position…

Outside of Judon however, there are a lot of inexperienced players at the outside linebacker or defensive end spots. The Patriots could use another pass rusher. The 2022…
