Vince Wilfork, Haloti Ngata, players with the physical build and quality production those two display are not found each year in the NFL draft. 2015 has a player that reminds me of Wilfork and Ngata in terms of stature, that prospect is Washington Huskies defensive tackle Danny Shelton. Not many players weight over 340 pounds in the NFL who also show tremendous athleticism.

Patriots vulnerable now? Other coaches don’t see that

PHOENIX — As we’ve seen, the fallout from free agency has left the Super Bowl champion Patriots to deal with significant turnover.While club owner Robert Kraft boasted Monday about having 18 starters returning, his championship defense will no longer have Darrelle Revis, Vince Wilfork, Brandon Browner and Akeem Ayers. The offense will also be without all-purpose back Shane Vereen.Those players alone represented five key components in the ride to a fourth Super Bowl title.

Losing Vince Wilfork 'one of hardest things'

PHOENIX -- At the end of warm-ups before each New England Patriots game, defensive lineman Vince Wilfork would pass by owner Robert Kraft and kiss him on the cheek, which was a sign of the connection between them. With Wilfork signing a two-year, $9 million contract with the Texans last week, Kraft reflected on that turn of events. “That was one of the toughest things. It was harder than anything else [this offseason]," he said. "He’s someone we watched come in here; I developed a very strong personal tie to him.

2015 NFL Draft: Patriots Mock Drafts and Discussions Thread

The draft is around the corner so we're opening up a new draft discussion thread for your collaboration! We threw together a poll to ask you what you thought the New England Patriots biggest draft need should be, and over 1,000 of you responded. There are three clear needs and it only makes sense based upon the roster turnover. Of the Patriots starting 22, only four players are no longer on the roster: Cornerbacks Darrelle Revis and Brandon Browner Defensive Interior Vince Wilfork Offensive Interior Dan Connolly While Connolly remains a candidate to return, it's clear that most believe...
