After the week 1 debacle against the Dolphins, the Pats got back on track with a 17-14 win at Pittsburgh. Most criticism so far this season has been directed toward the Offense, which has bordered on the conservative and scored only 24 points through two contests. No one is debating that New England lacks star power on the offensive side of the ball, but a solid Defense may not be enough to compete in the AFC East.

The Bills' 41-7 drubbing of the Titans, Tua looking electric with Hill and Waddle, and Garrett Wilson emerging as a potential star for the Jets all spell trouble for an aging Patriot's secondary that could see Jonathan Jones hit free agency next year. While the Patriots offense will need help in order to keep up with the emergent offenses in the division, and the conference at large, corner is definitely a need.

Cam Smith is a top tier man coverage corner for the Gamecocks who also plays with the requisite smarts to survive on a Belichick Defense. If he can iron out some issues with his tackling during his final year at South Carolina, he will be a steal at this point in the draft for the Pats.

PATRIOTS HISTORICAL DRAFT PICKS

Reach/Value (R/V) Explained
The difference between where a player is selected in the NFL draft versus where the player was listed on the final Drafttek Big Board for the season in question.
Example: A player who was listed at #50 on the Big Board and was selected at #35 will be a "Reach" of -15. Alternately, a player listed at #35 on the Big Board who was selected at #50 is a +15 "Value".

Simply put: a positive number is a Value pick, a negative number is a Reach.
