Run date: 5/9/14 with Chri 'YO, HOMES TO GILLE'I-I'E' WILL SMITH FINALIZES DEAL WITH PATRIOTS The Patriots took a big step in rounding out what is looking to be a top NFL defense in 2014 by signing veteran defensive end Will Smith. Smith, who will be 33 at the start of the season, was a cap casualty of the New Orleans Saints after missing last season with an ACL injury. Smith had visited the Patriots in early April and looked like a prototypical Bill Belichick signing. Belichick and the Patriots coach- ing staff had ample opportunities to see Smith up close over the past summers as the Saints and Patriots held joint practices prior to meeting in NFL pre-season games. If healthy and returning to pre-injury form, Smith should provide depth along the defensive line, which is slowly looking like a dominant unit. With the addition of Smith, the line now boasts Vince Wilfork and Tommie Kelly inside with Chandler NFL DRAFT WEEKEND ARRIVES PATRIOTS LOOK TO ADD DEPTH AT KEY POSITIONS It's finally time for the NFL draft. It seemed this weekend would never arrive. Normally held in April, this year the largest "meat market" in the world kicks off in New York City on Thursday, May 8uL Holding the 29 th pick in the first round, the Patriots are primed to move out of the round altogether and acquire additional draft picks in later rounds. Areas of need for the team are mainly depth issues; however tight end and safety are key positions the team needs to address. Recently the Patriots brought in vet- eran tight end Dustifl Keller and his sign- ing with the team would provide depth as well as insurance in the increasingly like- lihood that Rob Gronkowski not be able to start the season. Keller, like the Smith signing is coming off a season ending ACL injury and may be looking to rehabilitate his career with a team in a good situation like the Patriots. Keller would likely fill the role voided by the arrest and subsequent team release of Aaron Hernandez. However, the Patriots still need to find a young and dependable option and the draft would be the prime target to do so. North Carolina's Eric Ebron is the top ranked prospect, but an intriguing player for the Patriots is Iowa's C.J. Fiedorowicz. At 6'6", 265 Ibs, Fiedorowicz has shown the ability to shed blocks and get downfield in passing situations. Another option is Notre Dame's Troy Niklas. At 6'7", Niklas could be a matchup problem for defenses. Size alone doesn't translate to NFL Jones and Rob Ninkovich outside. Smith is versatile enough to assist in the middle and outside of the defensive line. Mark this a low risk, potential high reward signing. talent and believing Niklas or any other prospect in this year's draft will compare to Gronk is an exercise in futility, however, both Fiedorowicz and Niklas should be avail- able outside the first round of the draft pro- viding the team the ability to take a chance on one of them. Overshadowed by the Darrelle Revis and Brandon Browner signings is the fact that the team has limited depth in the sec- ondary, especially at safety, where the Patriots have only Devin McCourty as a lock at free safety. The team simply cannot go into the season with a giant question mark at strong safety. The starter may be on the roster in the form of second-year player Duron Harmon or third-year veteran Tavon Wilson. An interesting prospect at safety would be Brock Vereen, current Patriot running back Shane Vereen's little brother. The Minne- sota Gopher has the necessary football smarts to be successful in the NFL and con- tributes on special teams. These are two aspects of the game that Belichick and the Patriots look for when bringing in college talent. Vereen will not be a lock to start the season at safety; however, he will provide more depth. Guessing who the Patriots may or may not have interest in drafting is exactly that, a guess. Belichick's drafting is a riddle that has yet to be deciphered and I don't expect this draft to be any different.
