For the first time since Tom Brady won the starting quarterback spot with the Patriots in 2001, the franchise has drafted a college signal-caller with such an impressive resume that it has sparked some debate as to whether or not New England is taking the first steps in a preparation for an eventual c

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?

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?

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.

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.
