The Patriots apparently agree and have postponed their pre-draft press conference out of respect for what’s going on in the city on Friday. “Due to the developing events of today, the Patriots have respectfully postponed their pre-draft press conference that was scheduled at Gillette Stadium today and will now hold the press conference on Monday, April 22 at 12:00 p.m,” the team said in a statement. The Patriots have postponed their pre-draft press conference with director of player personnel Nick Caserio Friday due to the widespread manhunt for the Boston Marathon bombing suspect. With the city of Boston under an almost total lockdown as law enforcement agencies work to round up the suspected Boston Marathon bombers and accomplices, questions about who the Patriots might take in next week’s draft seem especially trivial. It's now been pushed to noon on Monday while police hunt for the suspect in the bombing.
