The offensive line has the bodies, but is it quantity over quality?

Looking at the current roster and projected depth chart for the upcoming season, there are two names that you could pencil in for a starting spot on the offensive line. Those would be OT Michael Onwenu and C David Andrews. Every other spot is a crapshoot.

Recently signed OT Chukwuma Okorafor will likely secure the other starting tackle spot, yet rookie Caedan Wallace could challenge for playtime with a strong showing at rookie camp.

Meanwhile, third-year G Cole Strange is expected to cement a starting position, though an unimpressive track record may see second-year players Sidy Sow and Antonio Mafi vying for more minutes. Rookie G Layden Robinson could also make a push.

The Patriots also feature Jake Andrews, Nick Leverette, Calvin Anderson, and Vederian Lowe, who could emerge as formidable contenders. Clearly, the team boasts a robust lineup of linemen. Only time will reveal their true caliber.

However, the numerous gaps in this line promise to spark some fiercely intriguing battles.
