I think we can all agree that if there was one area in the Patriots defense that most needed an upgrade this offseason, it was next to Patrick Chung at safety.

Despite a weak safety draft class and a shallow free agent market, the Patriots addressed that need drafting Tavon Wilson and Nate Ebner and signing Steve Gregory and Will Allen.

So where will Gregory and Allen fit in this season and are they the answer the Patriots need?

On Saturday and Sunday I was among the 14,000 attendees at Patriots training camp carefully watching all 89 players on the current Patriots roster.

After watching each drill and trying to gauge all of the new talent on the Patriots roster, I thought it was time for my first roster prediction of the 2012 preseason.

If you wanted to look over all of my thoughts this past weekend, feel free to go through my twitter timeline.

Here’s how I think the Patriots roster will shake out for week 1:

Alongside wide receiver Wes Welker and offensive tackle Sebastian Vollmer, starting safety Patrick Chung is considered one of New England’s most valuable impending free agents.

Chung, who is set to turn 25 years old in August, has established himself as one of New England’s best defensive players since being drafted with the Patriots’ top pick in the 2009 NFL Draft. The Boston Herald recently reported that New England has yet to discuss a contract extension with Chung, but it is expected that New England would be interested in re-signing Chung before he reaches the open market.

Of course, both the team and the player must be receptive to an extension, so a middle ground will have to be reached in order for the club to lock up Chung long-term.

After visiting with the New England Patriots for two days in March, free agent safety Steve Gregory agreed to terms with the club on a contract worth $7.05 million over three years.

Gregory received a $2.5 million signing bonus as a part of the deal, prompting widespread speculation that he would start in New England’s defensive backfield opposite Patrick Chung next season.

Now that the draft, free agency and the player acquisition period has come to an end, the 2012 New England Patriots Roster is coming into focus. As of right now the Patriots 90 man roster is loaded with talented players from top to bottom.

Training camp this year will be ultra-competitive as 75 or so players who have a legitimate shot at making the roster will fight for 53 spots.

What will the most competitive position battles be and who will win out? I take a look at all the position battles to watch as training camp is quickly approaching.
