Official School Bio
University of Tennessee
The Patriots still haven't found a deep threat to replace what Randy Moss provided the team before he left in 2010. Tom Brady is getting up there in age and giving him as many weapons as possible should be a priority for the Patriots front office. Wes Welker, Brandon Lloyd, and Jabar Gaffney are reliable targets and Welker is dynamic out of the slot, but the team still needs that guy who can run a nine route and open up the middle of the field. Insert Justin Hunter. He's a big target at 6'4 and track-star speed. Line him outside and the Patriots offense should take off.
