Imo, we do not, repeat do not have many holes to fill and this team is already loaded next year. This is a young football team on the whole, made up across the board with top draft picks and key FA's. We have Dmc, Mayo, Hightower, Collins, Jones, VW, Gronk, Dobson, Ridley, Vareen all very high picks. Boyce, Ryan, and Harmon all drafted high as well, even our back up QB was 1st rd talent. These players are all athletic, talented, and young players who have another year of experience. Half of the starting defense is 1st round picks, with Collins our 1st pick of this year.
We need DT depth, another CB after Talib walks, as I think Dennard will be one of the better cbs in the league with Logan on track as well, and i would like to see an early round h back/TE. I like Dobson and KT with another year of experience and Amendola as well. If Amendola stays healthy next year he will be a huge part of the offense. Also iM
o Edelman will be back at a fair price. The Patriots and Edelman need each other.
A couple of other things...
I believe Wendell will either be signed at a reasonable deal or we will draft a center early.
Id like to see Hooman come back and I think he will.
Blount might actually want to stay in N.E and take a fair deal......but I doubt it.
Sign another undrafted solid over acheiver like Bolden, Bjge and Woodhead for competition to push Ridley.
Also Spikes replacement was drafted a year early in Collins. Lber core looks dominate next year, but could use 2 more for depth. Over all this team is loaded, and has minimal glaring holes other then DT depth which should be our number 1 concern, well that and more coaching turnover.
