50 years ago today, my mom and dad were married and began the journey to start their own family. The strength of their marriage has always been an inspiration and the best example to me and my sisters of what true love, respect and commitment mean. Life always has its ups and downs and their togetherness in good and bad taught us teamwork. Their trust, love and dedication as parents taught us how to become the parents we are today. They have always put our family first and instilled in us the values they were taught from their parents, which we now carry on and teach our own kids. They have always encouraged us to attain milestones and we’re honored to celebrate this one they’ve achieved. We love you so much, mom and dad. Happy anniversary!!!
One of the more unheralded positions of strength on the Patriots has been the interior of their offensive line.
Put dependable guys like David Andrews, Joe Thuney, and Shaq Mason under the leadership of one of the best positional coaches in the game — Dante Scarnecchia — and that's unquestionably a recipe for success.
But that triumvirate isn't going to be around forever (Thuney is set to hit free agency in 2020), and at some point, the Patriots have to plan for the future of the position.

If so, Phil Perry has broken down which candidates in the draft pool fit the criteria that past Patriots linemen have exhibited.
