There are few remaining questions in the Patriots defensive backfield. Devin McCourty mans one of the safety positions, Darrelle Revis and Brandon Browner man the outsides, and Kyle Arrington, Alfonzo Dennard, and Logan Ryan fill in the holes.

But there is one spot that doesn’t appear to have a clear cut starter, and that is the second safety position. (more…)

What qualities do the Patriots care about most in a running back?  

Is it the ability to pick up a blitz? Or what about the obvious speed, vision, power, and ball security?  All of those may be in play, but if you look at it from a front office standpoint it seems to be all about the almighty dollar.

Many people dread their birthday after a certain age, but not me.  Each year, in late July, I get excited just like when I was a kid, because I get the same gift every year–Patriots training camp, followed by college camps. That’s right, it is the gift of football.

2015 NFL Draft

NEPD Staff Writer: Ken Vetrano

The PAC 12 fields some of the most explosive offenses and physical defenses in college football. Those of us from the east coast don’t get much of a chance to watch these high powered affairs that take place way past our bed times. But there is too much talent in the conference to ignore, so consider this your cheat sheet for who’s worth staying up late watching, and potentially calling in late to work for the next day.

After a few slow months it’s about time to start ramping back up the football and NFL Draft machine. We now can flip the page to 2014 and begin to search for the top prospects to watch during the season. The Atlantic Coast Conference is our first preview where I predict the All-Conference Teams and project the top five prospects at each position within the conference.

As was the case in 2013-14, the ACC is loaded with NFL caliber talent once again in 2014-15.

Let’s take a look.

By Marc Sluis, Staff Writer

The 2014 Draft was particularly strong at offensive tackle and wide receiver with those two positions making up 6 out of the first 12 selections. We also saw two blue chip defensive prospects in Jadaveon Clowney and Khalil Mack go in the top 5. Then of course was the notorious Johnny Football going to the dormant Browns late in the first. Most of the headlines were stolen by the magnetic but volatile former Aggie QB.
