Post-Draft Outlook: A closer look at the Patriots' picks: 5/170 -- George Bussey, OT, 6-2, 306, Louisville...The Patriots appear to have a depth issue up front, as evident by the fact they drafted offensive linemen with back-to-backs -- and three overall. Bussey is a dual-position player and can play guard and tackle. By having a player who can do both, it prevents the Patriots from keeping an extra lineman on the final roster, thus freeing up a spot for another position of need -- perhaps on defense. Bussey was a mainstay at Louisville for four years, so durability won't be an issue, and is exceptional in pass protection, which will be of heightened importance this year as Tom Brady returns from a knee injury. - by The Sports Xchange
