Each week during the NFL season, I will be providing readers with a 15 thoughts article. These articles will be similar to those I wrote leading up to the NFL Draft in April.

It’s a random compiling of thoughts I had throughout the week, things that stood out that week, things that I learned or just random tidbits that have nothing to do with anything. In this first edition, I get caught up on all the happenings of the preseason up to this point and take a look at some roster moves that we might see in the future.

Patriots defensive tackle Kyle Love has come a long way since signing as an undrafted free agent out of Mississippi State in 2010.

After signing a one-year extension through 2013 worth just over $3 million, what can we expect out of Vince Wilfork’s counterpart?

It seems like a lifetime ago that the Eagles beat the Patriots in the second preseason game of the season, but I assure you it wasn’t. It was only two days ago.

The Patriots took an odd approach in this game benching many of their key players due to the fact that they have three games in the span of ten days.

Like all preseason games, there was some good and some bad, so instead of my usual six keys to defeat, I’ll split it up and do three good keys and three bad keys.


Patriots Training Camp Preview: Defensive Line

Sunday, July 22nd, 2012

Despite being an undrafted free agent, Kyle Love has turned into a key player on the Patriots defensive line.

NEPD Editor: Mike Loyko

Throughout Bill Belichick’s tenure as Head Coach in New England the Patriots have boasted one of the best defensive lines in the league. However, over the past few seasons that defensive line has been in a state of transition both personnel wise and schematically.

This off-season the team made a concerted effort to add youthful talent to the line through the draft. It was also a priority to sign cost effective free agents who could be integrated into the Patriots defensive front for the foreseeable future. These personnel moves resulted in creating an abundance of talent both young and old at defensive tackle and end positions.

How is the defensive line depth chart shaping up for the regular season?
