Every Thursday on ESPNBoston.com, there is a Patriots chat in the early afternoon. Today's chat kicked off at noon, can be recapped here, and included some of the following topics:
1. First-round pick Chandler Jones and expectations.
2. Some chatters are dreaming of Percy Harvin in a Patriots uniform.
3. Shane Vereen -- more than a third-down back?
4. Plenty of backup quarterback talk.
5. Sorting out the cornerback personnel.
6. More follow-up from receiver Brandon Lloyd and his fit in the offense.
