Linebacker remains a position to watch for.

The New England Patriots held a workout with Miami’s Denzel Perryman this week, according to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport.

The 5-foot-11, 236-pound inside linebacker appeared in 34 career games for the Hurricanes, accumulating 243 tackles, 22 tackles for loss, three sacks, two interceptions, including one returned for a touchdown, along with eight pass deflections and six forced fumbles.

It could be defensive tackle. It could be cornerback. It could be offensive line.

The New England Patriots could call upon several positions at No. 32 overall in the 2015 NFL draft. And along the five-man front, there are several variables to account for, inside and out.

With left guard Dan Connolly still a free agent, and with right guard Ryan Wendell and left tackle Nate Solder entering the final years of their deals, New England’s line stands in a pliable stage heading into April 30.

One of the closest things to a long-term certainty there is at center, where Bryan Stork, a fourth-round pick last May, earned a total of 13 starts as a rookie. But where fellow fourth-rounder Cameron Fleming and swing man Marcus Cannon fit next season is unclear. And the same can be said of where New England’s war room will fit in this year’s prospects.

Head coach Bill Belichick, director of player personnel Nick Caserio and the Patriots may be able to put all the spots in place by drafting one, however.

At 32: Four Cornerbacks for Patriots to Monitor

Nine.

It’s the number of cornerbacks on the New England Patriots’ roster as the 2015 NFL draft draws near. And it’s a number that was subtracted from before it was added to during the first wave of free agency.

With both starters from last season’s team now on other teams, New England went out and signed three veterans into the mix in Chimdi Chekwa, Bradley Fletcher and Robert McClain in March. But there may soon be another to account for this month.

Bill Belichick, Nick Caserio and the Patriots’ war room may see April 30 as an opportunity not to replace Darrelle Revis or Brandon Browner, but to reshape the corner position itself. And with the rights to pick No. 32 overall at the end of the first round, several names could be in consideration should the organization opt to stay put.
