The New England Patriots are bracing for a pivotal offseason for the storied franchise. Could Tom Brady be in another uniform in Week 1 of the 2020 season?

The answer to that question is unquestionably going to give a preview of what is to come for the Patriots in the near future. If Brady heads elsewhere in free agency, New England will have to scramble to find his replacement.

Regardless of whether he returns or not, the Patriots need to address the offensive side of the ball in free agency and in the 2020 NFL Draft. While Brady didn’t have one of his best seasons in 2019, he also didn’t have much help through the air.

Besides Julian Edelman and James White, not many players for New England consistently contributed to the passing attack. In light of that, the Patriots could definitely choose to select a wide receiver in the first round of the upcoming draft.

At the same time, shoring up the offensive line could be another option in the first round. All that being said, here are three perfect options for the Patriots with the No. 23 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.
