It was easy to see why the Patriots drafted wide receiver Matthew Slater, the son of Hall of Fame offensive lineman Jackie Slater. The younger Slater's versatility was on display. He went through positional drills with the wide receivers, flashed his All-Pacific-10 skills as a kick returner, and lined up as a safety in seven-on-seven drills, making a one-handed interception of a deflected pass in the morning session

Crable revealed the linebackers - who included Mayo, sixth-round pick Bo Ruud, and undrafted free agents Gary Guyton and Vince Redd - spent Thursday night in the hotel cramming with the playbook. Crable said the group had to call the coaches because they didn't understand what they were trying to learn. Bill Belichick said that's fine by him. "That's what we get paid to do," he said. "We get paid to coach the players. We don't have the alumni functions and recruiting, and golf tournaments and all that. We coach the players, that's what we are here for."
