    In the spring of 2008, Matthew Slater was one of those. For those players currently projected to be drafted in the middle or later rounds of the draft -- which takes place this year from May 8-10 -- Slater knows what they're going through. "I think about it all the time," Slater said in a conversation with media members on Tuesday. Since being selected in the fifth round of the 2008 draft, Slater has been a mainstay on Patriots special teams units and has held the title of team captain for the past three seasons.
