If you’re a New England Patriots fan, you should be tired of hearing about the Patriots needing to draft cornerbacks and safeties in the upcoming year’s NFL draft. Unfortunately for the Patriots, bad secondary play continues to be a problem, and the personnel they currently have in the defensive backfield is plagued by substandard play.

Dating back to the 2007 NFL draft, the Patriots have drafted seven defensive backs in the first two rounds, including at least one in each of those six drafts, but the Patriots have yet to solve their secondary problems. Many of those players are no longer with the organization following disappointing stints in New England (Brandon Meriweather, Terrence Wheatley, Darius Butler) while others are underperforming (Patrick Chung, Ras-I Dowling).

Therefore, it isn’t just an expectation, but also a necessity, that the Patriots will draft another defensive back in the first two rounds in the 2013 NFL draft.
