This year’s Gator Bowl features an overachieving Northwestern team and a Mississippi State team that has had a nice year competing in the difficult SEC. The game features one of the best defensive backs in the 2013 NFL Draft as well as a couple other players that might interest the Patriots and other NFL teams as the draft season kicks into full gear.

The game is usually one of the most entertaining New Year’s Day Bowl games and while this year’s matchup isn’t exciting on paper it should be a good game.

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.
