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 included some of the following topics:
1. Picking a rookie who might make the biggest impact in 2011.
2. Ras-I Dowling and his background at safety.
3. What the offensive line could look like without Matt Light and Logan Mankins.
4. Focusing on the number of players at running back and tight end on the roster.
5. Considering top players at defensive end and outside linebacker.
