No way the pats lose to the Colts. They will have payback on their mind. It will be 2014 all over again with Brady seeing red. They will not coast in the second half either. This will be a statement game.
You don't have an issue drafting Funchess after selecting Benjamin as well? Personally, I'd rather avoid having two Panthers receivers. Cam runs too much to feed both mouths. I really like both options, but don't think I would want to have both, you know what I'm saying. If I don't get Benjamin early I'll look for Funchess later.
Remi Ayodele played relatively well in relief of Kendrick Clancy this season.
Jarvis Green, DE/DT, Broncos. Age: 31.
Jarvis Green is a capable starter in the 3-4 and could be a great backup. However, the Patriots could use an upgrade at the position.
Clifton Ryan (ERFA), DT, Rams. Age: 26. Re-signed with Rams (1 year, $1.6 million)
Clifton Ryan is decent against the run, but offers absolutely no pass rush.
Louis Leonard, NT, Panthers. Age: 26.
Louis Leonard, at 330 pounds, was Carolina's starting nose tackle before breaking his ankle in Week 2.
Jason Ferguson, NT, Dolphins. Age: 35. Re-signed with Dolphins
Jason Ferguson is a 35-year-old nose tackle who is coming off a nasty torn quad. Ferguson hinted that he's thinking about retirement, as he won't be healthy until the summer at the very earliest.
Tank Johnson, DT, Bengals. Age: 28. Re-signed with Bengals (4 years)
A decent rotational defensive tackle. NFL GMs beware, don't lowball Tank Johnson; you don't want to insult a man with thousands of guns.
Chris Hovan, DT, Buccaneers. Age: 32. Signed with Rams
Chris Hovan really struggled last year, as perhaps age caught up to him. He can be a solid rotational guy, but should not be a starter anymore.
Jimmy Kennedy, DT, Vikings. Age: 31. Re-signed with Vikings (2 years, $6 million)
Jimmy Kennedy was solid rotational lineman for the Vikings, though you have to wonder if he was just playing for a contract.
Daniel Muir (RFA), DT, Colts. Age: 26. Re-signed with Colts (1 year, $1.7 million)
Started the second half of the season and did a decent job against the run.
Hollis Thomas, NT, Panthers. Age: 36.
Hollis Thomas, at 36, shockingly played well for the Panthers this year. He's a solid backup nose tackle.
Travis Kirschke, DE/DT, Steelers. Age: 35.
Travis Kirschke will be 36 on Sept. 6, but he's still a quality rotational 3-4 lineman who excels against the run.
Fred Robbins, DT, Giants. Age: 33. Signed with Rams (3 years, $12 million)
Fred Robbins lost his starting job in the middle of the season. He's a solid rotational guy at best right now.
Ed Johnson, DT, Colts. Age: 26. Signed with Panthers (1 year)
There's no questioning Ed Johnson's talent. However, he has played in only five games in the past two seasons because of a marijuana arrest and weight issues. If the motivation is there, he can be a good addition.
