Tuesday was the one-year anniversary of the Boston Marathon Bombings. Former Patriots offensive lineman Joe Andruzzi was down at the Finish Line last year helping civilians admist the pandemonium. This past week he shared his story as part of Universal Sports' "Run as One" series. If you're going to the race this year, keep an eye out for Tedy Bruschi. Bruschi will be running to raise money for the American Stroke Association as part of "Tedy's Team". In
addition to Bruschi, the Patriots organization has a team of 52 runners that will take part in the 118th Boston Marathon. The team has raised almost $382,000 for charity and are hoping to bring that total even higher before making their way to the starting line on Monday.

This week the Patriots hosted another quarterback prospect at Gillette Stadium. Jimmy Garoppolo became the third quarterback to come to Foxborough this offseason along with Teddy Bridgewater and Johnny Manziel. The NFL
Network's Daniel Jeremiah, Curtis Conway, and Charles Davis broke down the best quarterback prospects in this year's draft. For more on who the Patriots may pick in May, check out our updated Mock Draft Tracker.
On Wednesday, Bill Belichick turned 62! It also marked the day when the Patriots drafted Tom Brady with the 199th pick of the 2000 NFL Draft, thus making April 16th one of the best days in Patriots history.
