Build through the draft.
Well the Patriots utilize FA as much if not more than drafts to assemble a team.
It's not a one or the other proposition, successfully acquiring players through either FA & the draft is the only way to build success.
Look at the Ravens, look at the 49ers, Giants, Steelers. They're active in FA. They just don't overpay for players (most players), they're willing to let their overpriced FAs walk, & they bring people in on the cheap.
Patriots took a chance on Moss & set records, traded a 2 & a 7 for Welker & broke records.
