1. Some scouting notes on Nate Solder.

2. Revisiting the team's decision-making and strategy at the No. 28 pick.

3. Remaining running backs on the board who might interest Patriots.

4. Why did the Patriots pass on some of the highly rated defensive ends?

5. Looking ahead to the second round and defensive options for the Patriots.
