The Patriots have a terrific opportunity to boost their pass rush in April’s draft, which is loaded with talent on the front four.

There might be a dozen players with first-round grades and another wave of quarterback-attacking monsters that will stretch into the second and third rounds. The Patriots could jump after one of them at No. 29, wait until their next pick at No. 59 or maneuver through the board to find someone to their liking.

They almost certainly won’t pluck the top pass rushers in the draft, such as Texas A&M defensive end Damontre Moore, Florida State defensive end Bjoern Werner and Florida defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd. But there are plenty of other options amid a group that is still sorting itself out, some of which already happened at last month’s Senior Bowl, continued this week at the combine and will progress in the next few weeks at pro days and private interviews.

“We all have different styles of play, and we all have something different that we can bring to the table,” Floyd said of the draft’s pass rushers. “It’s kind of wide open, more than we think, so it’s all up to the teams and what they need.”
