Kenneth Walker III - RB

There has been a lot of conversation surrounding Rhamondre Stevenson this offseason, mainly due to him being projected as a breakout star this upcoming season. But there have also been conversations about adding another running back to the roster, especially since Damien Harris left in free agency and James Robinson was released last month.

Most assume that the running backs rostered are OK to go into the season with, with Stevenson leading the way. That may be true, but does it hurt to add another reputable back to help carry the load?

In an ideal world, if the Patriots could trade with the Seahawks, there's no way they should pass on adding a dual threat like Kenneth Walker III.

As the primary RB for Seattle during his rookie season last year, Walker impressed each and every week. He was a threat out of the backfield and involved in the passing game, creating another weapon for Geno Smith to work with during games.

On the ground, he totaled 228 carries for 1,050 yards and nine touchdowns while adding 27 receptions for 165 yards as well.

His presence on the team would help equalize snaps between him and Stevenson, which became an issue for the current Patriots' running back during last season, as he played 66% of all offensive snaps compared to Harris' 35%.

A combination of Stevenson and Walker could set them apart from the rest of the AFC East, which is a mountain the Patriots are needing to climb right now to become a competitive team again.
