The Patriots season is still months away but with the conclusion of the NFL draft and the release of the 2022 schedule Thursday evening, fans are already looking ahead to football.
After the team’s accomplishments in the 2021 season, including a playoff appearance and five Pats players making the Pro Football Focus top 101 list, there are certainly many reasons to look forward to the fall.
There’s QB Mac Jones heading into his second season with the Patriots, and wide receiver Nelson Agholor, who was underwhelming in his first year in New England and recently pledged to have his “best season with the Patriots.”
Fans will also look for the Patriots defense to step up after the departure of star cornerback J.C. Jackson and guard Shaq Mason in the off-season. And the Pats’ sideline will be missing long-time OC Josh McDaniels who left for the head coaching position in Las Vegas.
