Post-Draft Outlook: A closer look at the Patriots' picks: 7/232 -- Julian Edelman, WR, 6-0, 198, Kent State...Why not try to find lightning a bottle in the seventh round? It's unlikely Edelman is being brought in here to be the next David Givens, but the Patriots are searching for kick-return talent with Hobbs dealt on draft day. A player such as Edelman could fill the role Matthew Slater failed to fill last year or, at the very least, provide enough competition to push the more established players. Edelman also played quarterback in college for the Flashes, so it's up in the air as to how the Patriots will do. Perhaps he's just an arm to help get the wide receivers some work in camp. - by The Sports Xchange
