Patriots.com News Blitz - 4/23/2012

Posted Apr 23, 2012

Mike Rodak of ESPNBoston.com writes that veteran free-agent running back Kevin Faulk is not expecting a decision from the Patriots on his future anytime soon.  Faulk, who is looking to return to New England for his 14th season, has stated that he will not play elsewhere if the Patriots don't call.  The Patriots worked out free-agent veteran running backs Tim Hightower and Ryan Grant on Friday, while reports also surfaced that there was a visit from Colts running back Joseph Addai.  Faulk stated that he expects the Patriots to take a "wait-and-see" approach about him re-joining the squad for next season.



Greg A Bedard of The Boston Globe compiles a list of the top defensive line prospects in the 2012 NFL Draft.  Many experts predict the Patriots to use one of their early-round draft picks on a defensive lineman, with many players being linked to the team in recent weeks.  Bedard ranks Mississippi State's Fletcher Cox at the top of his list: "Elite size, strength, and speed. Can play inside, or outside at end. Very quick first step. Equally adept at rushing or run-stuffing. Had 14 1/2 tackles for losses and five sacks last season. Long arms (34 1/2 inches). Has blocked field goal attempts. Little raw. Needs to work on technique."



Karen Guregian of The Boston Herald writes that the Patriots have drafted more All-Pro players than any other NFL team over the past 10 years, according to a Cleveland Plain Dealer report.  Bill Belichick and his staff have selected a total of 15 All-Pros between 2002 and 2011, while also sporting the best record in the NFL over the same period of time.



Christopher Price of WEEI.com writes that University of Miami wide receiver Tommy Streeter and Oklahoma State safety Markelle Martin have made pre-draft visits to Foxborough, according to reports.  Both players could be targeted starting in the second round. 



CSNNE.com writes that Tom Brady has been at Gillette Stadium for the first week of OTAs, according to a report from ESPNBoston's Mike Reiss.
