After a disappointing 2020 season, it's time to get back to the basics for the Patriots. A good draft could go a long way toward writing last season's wrongs. The Patriots' biggest issue was simply a lack of talent on their roster. They need a fresh dose of young talent to give them a spark for the 2021 campaign. It’s challenging to get inside the mind of head coach Bill Belichick as an evaluator. He’s always gone against the grain in his draft style, which has been met with its fair share of criticism in the last few years. Without quarterback Tom Brady, the Patriots noticeably struggled in all facets of the game in 2020. This could be one of Belichick's most important draft classes since he was hired as head coach in New England in 2000.
