Offensive line

Center: David Andrews, James Ferentz
Right tackle: Michael Onwenu
Right guard: Shaq Mason, Marcus Cannon
Left tackle: Trent Brown
Left guard: Joe Thuney, Ted Karras

Because of the significant concerns around the offensive line in recent years, it wasn't exactly simple to decide who would be the best performers as a group on the offensive line.

The good thing, however, is the linemen haven't always been worrisome.

Picking a center was the easiest. David Andrews is the epitome of consistent and reliable, becoming one of the best centers in the league during his seven-year career. When deciding his backup, it made sense to have James Ferentz there on the off chance he would be needed, although Ted Karras could also fill in.

Michael Onwenu at right tackle is the only correct choice. Since being drafted in 2020, he's been utilized all over the line and quickly became a star for his work ethic and performance.

Choosing who should be the right guard wasn't easy, but Shaq Mason (who most Patriots fans wish Belichick had never traded) and Marcus Cannon felt the right way to go.

Trent Brown would be used as the left tackle on this team, but he also has played on the right side, which will inevitably be helpful throughout the season.

Then at left guard are the two that got away; Joe Thuney and Ted Karras.

When both guys hit free agency, their protection of the quarterback over the years earned them massive contracts with their new teams. Although it wasn't fun to see them go, especially as the line became even worse in the years since it made sense for them to chase the bag or, in Thuney's case, a Super Bowl.

So in this dream team creation, they will both make their returns and help the Patriots win another championship.
