When we made our first Patriots roster prediction back in June, things in Foxboro we’re very different. Logan Mankins wasn’t yet publicly disgruntled, while Derrick Burgess still looked like he would play in the 2010 NFL season.
These revelations, plus Brandon Tate and Taylor Price getting lots of reps in training camp, led us to make three changes (shown in bold) to our initial prediction. Disagree? Have at it below in the comments section.
