As of right now, both Patriots starting tackles are on one-year contracts. That could change with Isaiah Wynn’s fifth year option, but odds are the Patriots will need at least one new starting tackle next year. It would be highly unlike the Patriots to pay two players at the same high-priced position, especially with the respective injury history of each. That’s a long way of saying that the Patriots are likely going to need a new starting tackle next year. They can stay ahead of the process, and have an affordable player ready to go if they draft one this year. It’s a good draft for the position, so they should be able to get a guy who is at or near starting caliber at some point on the first two days. They can then spend the year developing that player behind the scenes, and have him ready to plug and play in 2022. Level of need: 1st-3rd round
