We did it! We made it to the final installment of the Big Board series. I have put too many hours to count into this exercise, but it has been a labor of love. For you loyal readers, I hope that you have enjoyed these articles. They are meant to be fun and informative and hopefully after reading them you can go into the draft next week with a little more knowledge about these prospects than you did before. The final two positions to look at are interesting from a Patriots perspective. One I feel is maybe the Patriots biggest need and the other is a position that the Patriots have made some, shall we say, interesting selections at in recent years. It is not out of the realm of possibility that the Patriots draft both Corner and Safety high again this year. While drafting Corner would likely make most fans happy, another Safety could send some fans over the edge. Either way, we need to look at who the Patriots might target and who are good fits. Corner was by far the toughest position for me to narrow down and the list is still probably longer than it should be. Here is the final big board section for the 2016 draft.
