If we’ve learned anything from watching this team over the years and looking at the free agent deals of Tully Banta - Cain and Mark Anderson , Bill Belichick can turn any slappie into a 10-sack situational edge rusher. But Sheard does more. He’s got the power and technique to push the pocket from the middle. He came off the edge to produce two strip sacks. And on one

the New England Patriots have actually panned out fairly well with Patrick Pass (2000), David Givens (2002), Tully Banta - Cain (2003) Matt Cassel (2005), Julian Edelman (2009), Brandon Deaderick (2010) and Alfonzo Dennard (2012) . This season, the Patriots selected Michigan wide receiver Jeremy Gallon in the seventh-round
Edelman (2009) as seventh-round pickups. (That doesn’ t include defensive players like Alfonzo Dennard , Tully Banta - Cain and Brandon Deaderick , all of whom have started in their careers with New England.)
