FOXBORO — Ask Bob Marken what he likes the most about Nate Solder, and it’s not his athletic prowess.

Using a first-round round pick on a running back can be a dicey proposition. Just ask Bill Belichick, who has only drafted one back in the first round in the 11 drafts he’s presided over while with the Patriots.

With the reigning MVP under center, the Patriots are one of the few teams in the league who don’t need help at quarterback.

You’ve read the draft annuals and memorized what Mel Kiper, Jr. and the rest of the analysts have to say when it comes to who might be on the Patriots’ radar for the first few rounds. But how is the rest of New England’s draft board going to look?

The first major event since negotiations between NFL players and owners broke off last month ended Wednesday afternoon with U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson telling both sides she will take “a couple of weeks” before she rules on the players’ request to return to work.

One of the most important events in the recent history of professional football will take place Wednesday in a Minnesota courtroom.

CHESTNUT HILL — It’s easy to see why Boston College tackle Anthony Castonzo is considered a first-round talent in next month’s NFL draft: The 6-foot-7, 313-pounder has the size, strength and footwork needed to

It is one of the final steps in the getting-to-know you process between a team and a prospect: The private workout is one of the last chances an NFL team has to get familiar with a prospect before draft day.

The NFL players responded to a letter from commissioner Roger Goodell with their own letter on Saturday that stretches nearly four pages, but can be boiled down into one sentence: “Your statements are false.”

With the NFL now days into its first work stoppage since 1987, franchises are already starting to feel the impact. Teams are talking about laying off personnel, while player movement has ground to a halt. How will the lockout affect the Patriots? Here are five ways: COMPARED TO MOST OTHER TEAMS, THE PATRIOTS ARE FAIRLY WELL POSITIONED

The first work stoppage in the NFL since 1987 started Friday at midnight, as the league decided to institute a lockout of the players after negotiations between players and owners who were searching for a new Collective Bargaining Agreement broke down.

With NFL players and owners looking at a deadline of midnight Friday before a potential lockout — and league’s first work stoppage since 1987 — the two sides have dissolved into name-calling, going back and forth Thursday afternoon and evening in the media as time ticked down toward the expiration of the Collective Bargaining Agreement.

They’re still talking. Above all else, that’s the most important thing to remember.

There were no public statements from Patriots officials, and Bill Belichick and Nick Caserio were mostly out of sight, out of mind.

For the Patriots, the annual NFL Combine — set to open this week in Indianapolis — is an important part of their overall assessment of college prospects. But when it comes down to deciding whether or not a player is the kind of guy you want in a New England uniform, it’s only a singular part of a much larger evaluation process.

After Green Bay’s B.J. Raji picked off Chicago quarterback Caleb Hanie in the NFC Championship and cruised into the end zone from 18 yards out, he performed ... well, it wasn’t quite something out of Chad Ochocinco’s book, but it was pretty close.

There will be plenty of people in Massachusetts rooting for the Packers in Super Bowl XLV Sunday, and not just because they want Green Bay to deny Ben Roethlisbe

No one knows what Tom Brady and Bill Belichick want in a wide receiver more than Troy Brown.

Learning from losses. It’s something the Patriots have done each season since Bill Belichick has been in charge down in Foxboro. For a championship-driven franchise, falling short of a Super Bowl title is a bitter pill.

It was somewhere between the third or fourth missed tackle from Bart Scott and the crushing hit that Mark Sanchez took just before the end of the first half before the realization started to set in: After an emotionally draining win over the Pat

Tom Brady underwent successful surgery on his right foot Thursday at Massachusetts General Hospital on Thursday, and according to several reports, is doing well.

Trying to determine the legacy of the 2010 Patriots is a complicated process. Did they fall short of their ultimate goal, victims of the lofty standards set by their predecessors? Or were they dynamic overachievers, surpassing the expectations that pundits put on them at the start of the season?

FOXBORO — The whole thing felt more than a little like the final day of school: Lockers were being cleaned out, guys were saying goodbye and making plans to meet up soon. All that was missing was someone passing around a yearbook to sign.
