Patriots
This cast includes Nick Kaczur, Logan Mankins, Russ Hochstein, Stephen Neal, Brandon Gorin, Tom Ashworth, Daniel Graham, Benjamin Watson, and Christian Fauria. The team’s O-line features two rookies, a center starting for the first time, and fourth-year players at right guard and right tackle. It’s one of the youngest lines in the league. Ashworth has excelled as a short-yardage fullback, while Graham is one of the NFL’s better blocking tight ends.
