Get your shades, the Patriots future is bright

Well the Football Outsiders recently confirmed that the Patriots are going to continue to be the best NFL team ever. The FBO story is insider content, but I've got you covered with a quick summary for those of you who are not signed up for ESPN insider.

FBO rates the Pats #1 in talented contributors 25 years old and under. Leading the way is the Boston TE Party (they are both only 23 years old), both Chandler Jones and Dont'a Hightower are highly regarded as well. Nate Solder also gets a nod for his steady contributions up front and his perceived future value is higher with the retirement of the venerable Matt Light.

Some other valuable guys under 25 years old that were not mentioned include: Patrick Chung, Jake Ballard, Kyle Love, Devin McCourty, Ras I Dowling, Stevan Ridley and Brandon Spikes. Yeah the Pats are loaded.
