There have been two key debates floating around Patriots Nation for years.

If/when future Hall of Famers and G.O.A.T.s Bill Belichick and Tom Brady decide to retire, who fills the massive voids at head coach and quarterback that will be left behind for the Patriots?

While the decision as to Brady's heir will be made by the head coach/GM at the time – which could still be Belichick himself – the pick to run the Patriots after Belichick will be made by the Kraft family.

While many have assumed over the years that Josh McDaniels might be the head coach-in-waiting in Foxborough, the Boston Herald offers up a different candidate with a history in New England. In a strangely-timed column, Herald columnist Tom Keegan “can’t think of a better person to top the list of potential successors to the NFL’s best coach” than current Titans head coach and former Patriots linebacker Mike Vrabel.

WEEI.com writes that New England “will need to get creative during the NFL draft.” Whether people really want it or not, WEEI.com did a deeper dive into Brady's social media work to come up with seven takeaways from the quarterbacks first 100 Twitter follows. Apparently fixated on Brady's Twitter action, WEEI.com also notes Brady’s back-and-forth with fellow Under Armour pitchman Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

NFL.com has analyst Charles Davis’ second mock draft, this one sending versatile Kansas State tackle Dalton Risner to the Patriots at No. 32.
