With less than a week before rookies are scheduled to report for training camp, the Patriots have nine of their 12 draft picks in the fold.

Making snap judgments based on a few spring workouts isn’t good football business. But after watching 10 spring practices involving the Patriots over the last six weeks -- four at rookie minicamp, four at the organized team activities (OTAs) and two at full-squad minicamp -- we know a lot more about the team than we did in the days following the draft.
