New England Patriots: Star Players for 2014

Quarterback: Tom Brady

Tom Brady was selected with the 199th pick of the 2000 NFL draft. Despite his low draft pick, Brady has gone on to become one of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history. Brady has led the Patriots to three Super Bowl championships as well as five AFC Conference titles. He was the NFL MVP in 2007 and 2010 and has been selected for the Pro Bowl on nine occasions. Brady had a standout season in 2007, throwing an incredible fifty touchdown passes and finished the season with a passer rating of 117.2. Brady is getting better with age and led the Patriots to another Super Bowl as well as throwing for a career high 5235 yards in 2011. As long as Brady is at the Patriots they will be one of the favorites for the Super Bowl.

Offensive Star: Rob Gronkowski

Rob Gronkowski was selected with the 42nd pick of the 2010 NFL draft. Gronkowski had a strong rookie season becoming the youngest player to have three touchdown receptions in a game. Gronkowski had an ever better season in 2011 and, along with Jimmy Graham, completely changed the way that tight ends in the NFL play. He broke several NFL season records including: most touchdown receptions by a tight end, most receiving yards by a tight end and became the first tight end in NFL history to lead the league in receiving touchdowns. A rough 2013 season saw him receive a season-ending knee injury in December. Hopefully he can come back strong in 2014 as Gronkowski's potential is unlimited and with Tom Brady throwing him the ball has the potential to be the greatest tight ends in NFL history.

Defensive Star: Dont'a Hightower

Dont'a Hightower is a linebacker for the Patriots, selected in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft. He is considered one of the best inside linebackers of his class. He played college football for the University of Alabama, where he was recognized as an All-American and was a member of two BCS national Championship teams. 2013 proved to be a successful season for Dont'a after linebacker Brandon Spikes dealt with a knee injury all season. Dont'a led the Patriots with 97 combined tackles. 2014 should be an even better season for this linebacker finding his groove.

Head Coach: Bill Belichick

Bill Belichick is one of the most experienced coaches in the NFL. His NFL coaching career started way back in 1975 as an assistant for the Baltimore Colts. He spent time at: the Detroit Lions, Denver Broncos and New York Giants before being named head coach of the Cleveland Browns in 1991. Belichick's stay at Cleveland was disappointing, with the side qualifying for the playoffs just once under Belichick. He returned to head coaching with the Patriots in 2000. Since then, Belichick has led the Patriots to three Super Bowl titles as well as five AFC Conference Championships. He is a three time NFL coach of the year winner and was named coach of the NFL 2000s All-Decade Team. Belichick had another strong coaching year in 2011, leading the Patriots to another Super Bowl despite the defense struggling for most of the season. Belichick is one of the most influential men in the NFL and one of the greatest coaches in NFL history.
