Starting over. New beginnngs. A clean slate. Those themes were everyone at Gillette Stadium, both literally and metaphorically, when training camp began on Thursday morning.

The stretch between now and the final week of July — the start of training camp — is usually the quietest time on the NFL calendar. Most everyone is away prepping for the start of a new year, attempting to squeeze in a few final weeks of vacation before the long season ahead.

The Patriots open organized team activities Monday in Foxboro, a series of 12 practices that will run on-and-off for the next month or so leading up to mandatory minicamp in mid-June. While these sessions are meant to be non-contact affairs — which means little can be gleaned when it comes to measuring real football shape, physicality and, to some extent, speed — there will be a number of things worth watching.

Just over a month ago, tight end was a spot where the Patriots were as shallow as a wading pool. Now, they suddenly have the depth of a Greek philosopher.

For a team that prides itself on its special teams play, 2009 could be classified as a disappointing year for the Patriots.

When it comes to pre-draft evaluation, everyone has film. Everyone has heights and weights and 40 times and three-cone drills results. But not everyone knows the story behind the story.

FOXBORO — When it comes to team-building, Bill Belichick and the Patriots are nothing if not consistent.

As Steve Belichick used to tell his son, “The hay is in the barn.” With the draft now less than two weeks away, teams are pretty much done with the evaluation process. Draft boards are locked, and preparation for the three-day team-building marathon is just about complete.

Kevin Faulk and Stephen Neal had their chances on the free agent market this offseason, but when it came right down to it, there was no place they’d rather be than Foxboro.
