Every Thursday on ESPNBoston.com, there is a Patriots chat in the early afternoon. This week's chat kicked off at noon, can be recapped here, and includes some of the following topics:
1. Projecting how the Patriots might approach the draft.
2. Aaron Hernandez and his dip in playing time in the second half of the season.
3. How a WR addition would affect Brandon Tate and Taylor Price.
4. A closer look at some offensive line possibilities in the draft.
5. Some defensive ends/outside linebackers to watch at the NFL combine.
