The New England Patriots have had a busy offseason, stockpiling weapons throughout the roster. However, one position sticks out as having undergone a substantial amount of influx, and that’s cornerback. The Patriots added veteran E.J. Biggers at the tail end of March, and then they leaped on Alabam product Cyrus Jones with their first pick in the 2016 NFL Draft. To round out the additions, the Pats signed undrafted rookies V’Angelo Bentley, Jonathan Jones and Cre’Von LeBlanc.

After the shedding of Rashaan Melvin and Leonard Johnson over the offseason, the Patriots’ returners at cornerback include Malcolm Butler, Logan Ryan, Justin Coleman and Darryl Roberts. You know about Butler and Ryan… Coleman was a solid slot corner at times in 2015, and Roberts was the story of training camp last year before going down for the season with a broken wrist.
