Prototypical Patriots: Big bodies and versatile defensive tackle options abound


No matter what the Patriots do over the three days of the NFL Draft, their defensive front will have a new look in the 2019 season.

Malcolm Brown and Danny Shelton are both gone, while New England added Mike Pennel in free agency.

Should Bill Belichick look to add defensive linemen this weekend, he could go for some big bodies in the vein of Brown and Shelton, or he could opt for lighter interior linemen similar to Lawrence Guy.

Based on past players in Belichick's system, NBC Sports Boston's Phil Perry has evaluated which players in this year's draft could be fits in Foxboro.
