Former Bucs GM Mark Dominik of SiriusXM NFL Radio and The Ringer's Kevin Clark join Phil Perry to talk about the role the draft and fitting in veterans plays in Patriots roster-building.

2:21 - Mark Dominik joins Phil to analyze the Patriots draft strategy in the recent past. He starts by talking about how New England finds success by focusing on the "second draft."

5:46 - Mark talks about how the current Collective Bargaining Agreement has effectively wiped out the middle class of NFL players and discusses how the new CBA could fix this problem.

9:52 - What kind of moves have the Patriots made in recent drafts and how do those patterns look to play out in this year's draft?

12:41 - Phil wraps up the interview by asking Mark if this is the right time for the Patriots to draft Tom Brady's heir.

14:54 - Phil is joined by NFL writer for The Ringer Kevin Clark, who starts off by discussing how old New England's roster is compared to the rest of the league and why.

20:04 - Kevin explains that stockpiling veteran players is a good move for the Patriots because it's much easier for Bill Belichick to fit experienced players into his complicated system.

26:45 - Phil asks if this is the year that the Patriots will make some huge moves in the draft or if they'll continue to acquire veteran players.
