FOXBORO -- When it comes to versatility, the phrase around Gillette Stadium is, “The more you can do, the more you can do for us.” To that end, while the Patriots have spent the first two days of the 2012 draft aggressively going after defense, they’ve also placed a premium on

FOXBORO -- In a year that featured more first-round trades than any draft in NFL history, Bill Belichick and the Patriots certainly did their part on Thursday night, moving up twice and picking up a pair of defenders in

While coaches will tell you the status of every member of their current roster dictates their approach in the NFL draft, no player will have a greater impact on how the Patriots operate this week than defensive back Devin McCou

While some of the branches have been pruned from the Bill Belichick coaching tree the last few seasons, there’s still a sizable collection of former assistants and other comrades at the college level who the Patriots’ coach has leaned on for advice throughout the pre-draft process.

One week into free agency, the Patriots have addressed many of their weaknesses, including depth at wideout, offensive line and safety. But that’s only one part of the team-building process -- how has what New England’s done over the last week altered what it might do when it comes to the draft?

Manning vs. Brady. Belichick vs. Dungy. Cut that meat. Fourth-and-2. “Throw the damn flag.” Willie McGinest stops Edgerrin James. The Manning Face. Mike Vanderjagt.

INDIANAPOLIS -- At league events like the annual NFL scouting combine, the Patriots love operating in the shadows.

INDIANAPOLIS -- The Patriots have to get younger at wider receiver. They haven’t been able to develop a consistent young presence at the position in a decade. So what does New England do this offseason?

INDIANAPOLIS -- When it came to their front seven, the Patriots showed multiple defensive looks last season, shuffling between a three-man front and a four-man front depending on personnel and opponent.

02/22/2012 - 7:51pm
The combine is one of the most underrated events on the NFL calendar. A rare opportunity for the media to meet with top-flight prospects, coaches, personnel men and agents, it’s the real kickoff to an offseason that will continue with the start of free agency, league meetings and the draft.

Just two weeks after the Super Bowl, the NFL offseason kicks into high gear this week. Teams can start placing the franchise tag on players Monday (a process that concludes March 5), and starting Thursday, the Patriots will join the rest of the league at the annual scouting combine in Indianapolis.

Despite the fact that the Patriots are only a few days removed from the Super Bowl, they already have a laundry list of things to address in the coming months. Here are 10 points of emphasis for the franchise:

Less than 24 hours after a final Hail Mary attempt came up short at the end of Super Bowl XLVI, the Patriots opened the offseason with a series of goodbyes at Gillette Stadium.

INDIANAPOLIS -- Late Sunday night, deep in the bowels of Lucas Oil Stadium, Wes Welker stared straight ahead, glassy-eyed and quiet.

INDIANAPOLIS -- Here are 46 things we’ll be keeping an eye on in Sunday’s Super Bowl XLVI between the Patriots and the Giants.

INDIANAPOLIS -- When it comes to defending the no-huddle offense, the Giants have tried just about anything, including some well-timed injuries that left them looking like Al Czervik.
Christopher Price
02/02/2012 - 12:33am
INDIANAPOLIS -- Near the start of the 2011 season, Patriots defensive line coach Pepper Johnson made a simple analogy when talking about the New England defensive line, saying “it’s kind of hard teaching some old dogs new tricks.”

INDIANAPOLIS -- This game is going to come down to whether or not the fat guys in the blue jerseys can stop the fat guys in the white jerseys from getting to Tom Brady. The rest of it is all incidental.

INDIANAPOLIS -- While Patriots coach Bill Belichick has disarmed the media for much of New England’s first two days in Indy with some one-liners and great stories about the old Giants’ coaching staff,
