You should know the drill by now. I post this, Bill Belichick chuckles and trots in 18 new guys.

Actually, I think we're getting close to the final group even though safety is still very thin.

As you'll see below, the Patriots have 13 defensive tackles, which is a ridiculous number. It's only two less than the entire offensive line, and four more than all three linebacker spots combined.

And, yes, we're going with the 4-3 alignment. There's too much evidence to the contrary at this point.

We'll be getting more into the battle for the 53-man roster as we approach the first exhibition game.

Here we go. The Patriots' 90-man roster as of 9:52 p.m.
