Posted April 30, 2011 @ 8:42 p.m. ET
The Patriots spent their final pick of the 2011 draft on another defensive back, Malcolm Williams, who admitted he was surprised to get the call.

Patriots place focus on long term

Posted April 30, 2011 @ 7:08 p.m. ET
One year after drafting a class that contributed right away, Bill Belichick went with purely developmental prospects in 2011.

Patriots comfortable with pass rushers on roster

Posted April 30, 2011 @ 4:51 p.m. ET
It was pretty much a consensus that a pass-rushing defensive end or outside linebacker would be high on the Patriots' priority list heading into the draft, but clearly, Bill Belichick didn't view it that way.

Patriots No. 8 pick scouting report: OLB Markell Carter, Central Arkansas

Posted April 30, 2011 @ 4:39 p.m. ET

Fantasy outlook: QB Ryan Mallett

Posted April 29, 2011 @ 11:41 p.m. ET
One of the most surprising picks of the draft was QB Ryan Mallett heading to New England, and he won't have any fantasy value for a couple years.

Fantasy outlook: RB Stevan Ridley

Posted April 29, 2011 @ 11:37 p.m. ET
Similarly to Shane Vereen, Stevan Ridley could get some touches in Bill Belichick's rotating backfield, but he will be hard-pressed to get fantasy points.

Fantasy outlook: RB Shane Vereen

Posted April 29, 2011 @ 11:25 p.m. ET
California's Shane Vereen gets the first shot to be a member of Bill Belichick's split backfield in New England, which automatically diminishes his fantasy value.

A stunning pick, but Mallett makes a ton of sense for Patriots

Posted April 29, 2011 @ 10 p.m. ET
Ryan Mallett's slide through the draft ended with the Patriots, and Bill Belichick may have completed another Draft Day steal.
