Patriots seven-round mock draft: Pass-rush gets a lift in third round

Bill Belichick has drafted 153 players during his time with the Patriots. Those picks are 153 indications of the traits he's looking for. They are 153 examples of what in his mind constitutes a college player with pro potential. Patriots schemes and the rules of the game have changed since Belichick's tenure began. And what makes a good team now differs in many ways from what made a good team in the early 2000s.  Still, those 153 picks are evidence.  They are, taken together and parsed, statements made about what generally will and will not be valued inside the walls of Gillette Stadium when draft weekend arrives.  Heights. Weights. Arm lengths. Forty-yard dash and three-cone drill times. Coaches.
