Every Thursday on ESPNBoston.com, there is a Patriots chat in the early afternoon. Today's chat is scheduled to kick off at noon.

The chat comes at a time when teams are coming down the homestretch in preparations for the NFL Draft. Meanwhile, there have been no advancements on the labor front. Also, on Friday, the Patriots Hall of Fame committee will gather to select the nominees for this year's inductee.
