Wonder why he didn't play more? Who was he behind? The highlights showed he was viciously fast.

Yup. BB is building an early century monster team again, as I mentioned yesterday. Win or lose, if you play the Patriots this season, plan on lots of therapy tubs and Aleve the following day.
I agree, both on offence and defence. The D will bring relentless pressure to any offence they go up against and the Pats offense will be hard running smashmouth with guys like big Trent ploughing lanes.

We it looks like we have strength in depth as well which is great. The D line can interchange at will.

I was really hoping this would be a draft focused on the front 7. Nice to see it happening.

I don't know about you but for me not having Tashawn Bower, Nick Thurman, Akeem Spence, Isaiah Mack, Xavier Williams and Derek Rivers playing meaningful snaps on the the defensive line is a huge upgrade for the Front 7.
Personally, I don't see Perkins as a DE for the Pats - He's a KVN OLB type of player mixed with Hightower physicality for inside duty. 3-4 or 4-3, it hasn't mattered in years. It's the Front 7 now.

PFF's overall draft board ranking:
12. DT Christian Barmore (drafted 38th)
14. QB Mac Jones (drafted 15th)
43. Ronnie Perkins (drafted 96th)
