If there’s one thing Bill Belichick has proven over the years, it’s that if you aren’t going to be a star on the New England Patriots, you better damn be versatile.
Last year, Belichick may have gone over the edge with his love for versatility lining Julian Edelman up at cornerback, Matthew Slater at safety, Logan Mankins at left tackle, Nate Solder at tight end and more.
This year, the Patriots have acquired even more versatile players, and I’ll try to break down all of the positions they can play here. I avoided using players whose versatility is limited to non-return special teams, and also players who just play multiple versions of the same position.
