Patriots 2012 Defensive Off season moves pre-draft. Aaron Lavarias- He is listed as a DE, but at 248 I think he projects more as a OLB; Practice squad. Mike Rivera- MLB, practice squad last year. Ross Ventrone- SS Was jerked around last year from active to practice squad over and over. Hopefully this year will be different for him. Alex Silvestro- DE, was on the practice squad all last year leading up to the SB. Hopefully will be on the 53 this year. Steve Gregory- SS, a converted CB should see a lot of PT and possibly have a Pro Bowl showing in 2012.(Starter) Trevor Scott- LOLB, will play both LB and DE in the 4-3. A good versatile player that will thrive in BB's system. (Starter) Bobby Carpenter- MLB, I am kind of torn with this pick up as I believe that Dane Fletcher has much more potential then Bobby. But another white potential starter. In my estimation in 2012 the Patriots will go from having one white starter on defense in 2011 to having at least 4. This may be their best year ever.
