1. In the wake of Hernandez’s connection to the recent murder of Odin Lloyd, it’s important to remember that even if the Patriots tight end is completely exonerated, he will almost certainly face discipline from the NFL.

  With the spring practices -- OTAs and minicamps -- now completed, the 2013 Patriots are starting to come into sharper focus. And inevitably, while there are guys who appear to be roster locks, there are also players who -- at least as of right now -- appear to be on the bubble when it comes to making decisions on the 53-man roster.

So Tim Tebow is coming to Foxboro. What does this mean for the Patriots?

LeGarrette Blount is a big guy. But truth be told, he’s not much bigger than most of the running backs Bill Belichick has worked with over the course of his coaching career in New England.

It’s a different sport, but watching the NBA postseason, it’s hard not to see the team-building and management parallels between the Spurs and Patriots.

  The Patriots made several moves this offseason, but they didn’t acquire any one of the high-end pass-rushers who were available in free agency. In addition, they didn’t push all their chips to the middle of the table on one of the elite pass-rushers who were available in this year’s draft.

It’s only May, but the way the Patriots roster is starting to shape up, there are going to be some intriguing positional battles that will loom this spring and summer in New England. Here’s an early look at what should be the best:

For the last couple of years, the Patriots have searched for a linebacker who could work in coverage.

Nope. Don’t think so. Keep moving. Patriots coach Bill Belichick needs to resist what must be a powerful impulse and make the decision not to sign Tim Tebow.

FOXBORO -- The Patriots pursuit of a receiver this spring brought them to a familiar place: Marshall University.

FOXBORO -- You knew it was coming -- it was just a matter of when.

When the Patriots swung and missed -- although, to be fair, it was sort of a check swing, called third strike -- on their pursuit of Emmanuel Sanders this spring, they tipped their hand to the fact that, as things stand right now, they’re still not satisfied with the state of their receiving corps.

With the 2013 draft looming, we decided to take a look back at the 18 finest selections of the Bill Belichick era in New England. The rules for inclusion are fairly standard -- a player had to be drafted by the Patriots from when Belichick took control in 2000 until the present day.

More often than not, trying to predict what the Patriots are going to try to do in the draft every year is an exercise in futility.

Trying to figure out if a college quarterback can succeed at the next level can be a dicey proposition, but in a 2010 story for Sports Illustrated, writer John Lopez came up with a simple formula for predicting success or failure with what he called the rule of 26-27-60.
