The Kansas City Chiefs have brought quarterbacks to the ground for nine sacks this season. Come Monday night at Arrowhead Stadium, it will be up to the New England Patriots’ offensive line to keep that number at nine.

Through three games, the unit has conceded seven.

It is a group that is still searching for answers. Tom Brady has been under pressure on 37 percent of his dropbacks. He has completed 42 percent of those passes. And he has been hit five times in the process of attempting them, which currently stands as the most in the league, all according to Pro Football Focus.

As of now, New England’s offensive line isn’t on pace to give up the 40 sacks it did in 2013. But a week after seeing Oakland Raiders outside linebacker Khalil Mack beat left tackle Nate Solder to the edge on his way to colliding with quarterback Tom Brady, some of the pass protection’s darkest moments have come on plays that do not end in a loss of yards.

The next opportunity to avert the trend is against a fast Kansas City front, bordered by veteran stand-up linebacker Tamba Hali. (more…)

Dontari Poe 2012 NFL Draft

Poe's athleticism for his size might have made him the biggest winner at this year's NFL Scouting Combine.

NEPD Editor: Doug Kyed

The 2012 NFL Combine has come to a close and that means one thing, we have eight weeks to sit and wait for the most anticipated three day event of the year.

No, not the Santee Birding and Nature Festival, the NFL Draft.

It’s a long two months to wait, but it also gives us plenty of time to review the tape, reorder our rankings and be fully prepared for anything that may be thrown at us in April. There was plenty of movement over the last week due to the Combine and I’m going to go position by position to tell you who made out best in Indianapolis.

Vinny Curry Patriots NFL Draft

Vinny Curry is an intriguing pass-rush option for both 3-4 and 4-3 teams.

Last we saw Marshall DE/OLB Vinny Curry, he didn’t have a great game against Tulsa. Did he rebound against Memphis, or did Tigers DT Dontari Poe steal the show?
