With training camp set to start Thursday, here is this writer’s list of the top 10 most indispensable Patriots players, not counting Tom Brady. The term “indispensable” implies not only talent and ability, but also how the team would be affected if the player missed time, or how vital the player is to the Patriots’ success in 2019. The order might change in a few months. So might the list of names. This is how it looks heading into camp: 10. Kyle Van Noy — Truthfully, Van Noy should be higher on this list. He’s coming off by far his best season, capped by a terrific Super Bowl. The 28-year-old Van Noy, initially acquired in a fleecing of the Detroit Lions, was on the field for 90 percent of the defensive snaps a year ago. While he generally plays an off-the-line role, Van Noy often was deployed on the line of scrimmage this past season. The addition of Jamie Collins, who can contribute in similar ways, knocks Van Noy a few spots down the indispensable rankings.

His stop of Marshawn Lynch at the goal line preceded Malcolm Butler’s interception in Super Bowl XLIX. His strip-sack of Matt Ryan ignited the Pats’ impossible 28-3 rally in Super Bowl LI. And he played arguably the best game of his career in the destruction of the Rams in Super Bowl LIII. Hightower also stayed healthy last year, logging 15 games for the first time since 2013. Like Van Noy, his ranking here is a bit diminished because of the Patriots’ linebacker depth. 8. Patrick Chung — Bill Belichick once called Chung “one of the best players in the league.” His toughness and versatility set the tone for a Patriots defense that should rank among the NFL’s elite. Chung serves numerous functions for the Pats, from covering tight ends to stuffing the run to occasionally sticking with slot receivers. In the event of a Chung injury, the Pats would need to reshuffle their secondary, moving Devin McCourty to a strong safety role. 7. Shaq Mason — The Patriots smashed the Chargers, Chiefs and Rams up front en route to their sixth Super Bowl. Expect them to enter 2019 with a similar approach. The offensive line is very good across the board, but the true strength is on the interior. Mason, the right guard, is the unit’s best player. 6. Devin McCourty — Entering his 10th season, McCourty’s leadership is invaluable. He and Chung basically are extensions of Belichick. Oh, and he’s a pretty good safety, too. Rarely does a team hit a big play over the top against the Patriots. McCourty’s prowess in the deep middle is a big reason why. 5. Joe Thuney — Thuney subbed in at left tackle during the spring as Isaiah Wynn gradually worked his way back from a torn Achilles. The Pats need Thuney to be ready to play that spot — perhaps the most critical of the five offensive line positions — if Wynn isn’t ready for the start of the season. A first-round pick in 2018, Wynn is a complete unknown. The Pats have precious little depth behind him, especially after veteran Jared Veldheer decided he was all set after a few hours in Foxboro. Thuney’s value this season (his last under contract) is not only at left guard, but also at tackle.

James White — Last year I made the humiliating mistake of leaving White off the top 10. He caught 87 passes, and I’m pretty sure Karen Guregian reminded me of the inexplicable exclusion after each reception. With Rob Gronkowski retired, White and Edelman are the only proven pass-catchers on the team. And the Patriots don’t have an adequate back up for White. Rex Burkhead is an interesting and versatile threat, but he is extremely injury prone, having played in only 56 percent of possible games as a Patriot. 3. Michael Bennett —  A bit high for a guy who has never played a game in a Patriots uniform? Maybe so. But Bennett is a big-time player who hasn’t regressed even as he reaches his mid-30s. Bennett’s top-three ranking is a reflection of his individual talent — he’s a movable piece along the front who can destroy offensive tackles and guards — and the Patriots’ lack of depth behind him. Bennett, the replacement for Trey Flowers, is the only accomplished defensive end on the roster. His counterparts (Deatrich Wise, Derek Rivers, John Simon, Keionta Davis, Ufomba Kamalu) enter the season with a combined 27.5 career sacks. Simon owns 15 of them. 2. Stephon Gilmore — Cornerback is the Patriots’ deepest position group, a fact that should devalue Gilmore’s “indispensability.” Take Gilmore out of the equation and the Pats still are in good shape in the secondary: second-year pro J.C. Jackson should take a step forward. Rookie Joejuan Williams brings a 6-foot-4 frame and a physical style of play to Foxboro. Jason McCourty, Jonathan Jones, Duke Dawson, and Keion Crossen round out the group. The Pats would be OK at cornerback if Gilmore went down, but they’re arguably the league’s best unit with him. Gilmore is the best overall player on the roster. 1. Julian Edelman — This one’s a layup. Without Edelman, the Pats would be in major trouble offensively. The Super Bowl LIII MVP has shown few signs of regression, as he returned from his four-game PED suspension a year ago to dominate down the stretch. At age 32, Edelman averaged 70 receiving yards per game for just the second time in his career. Could he experience a decline in his age 33 season? It’s possible. It’ll happen eventually. But the Patriots badly need him to come back just as strong in 2019 as they sort out the rest of their pass-catching corps.

Films may be the stories inspired by life, but documentaries are life. They are not something spiced up for our entertainment, they are not full of characters that were specifically drawn up to be loved by us, they don’t try to tone down the reality of the story to suit the comfort of the audience.
