The Patriots had a fairly turbulent offseason, but it hasn’t knocked them down too far in our preseason power rankings.
They came in at No. 7 in the vote conducted by the PFT staff, a spot that makes them one of the top four AFC teams in the rankings. Whether they finish the year that way will have a lot to do with how Tom Brady manages an offense that has questions at receiver and tight end as well as what the Patriots will do to find consistency at cornerback after several years of mixing and matching players without much success.
How do we think they’ll fare at those tasks? Take a look at our full preview of the Patriots as they head into training camp and then let us know if we’ve got them ranked in the right spot.
