    Faucet there's no way Kaczur starts over Vollmer. No way. It really isn't even a debate.

    Here's a crack at a possible depth chart.  Drafted players are highlighted.  Players that could be cut or traded are in red.  There are 53 players listed and of course only 45 can suit for a game.  I did not include the 8 practice squad players.  What do you guys think?  Ages as of the start of the season are included for existing players.

    food for thought....Since Dallas let go Flozell Adams and Ken Hamlin, they would seem to be in the market for both a tackle and a safety. Possibly 1 or 2 positions we could help them fill. Jerry likes to wheel and deal, good friends with Kraft.... What are the chances we deal a safety to Dallas or possibly Light as well? What could we get for either or both? (Vrabel/Cassel type package)..is it worth's Dallas' 2nd round pick?
    Posted by PatsLifer


    Dallas has a guy that they drafted a couple of years ago to fill this spot.  Adams nonsense hits the door.

    Re: 2010 Mock Rounds 1-6


    Ok, if you think Lee will be the starter in place of Adams, I'll buy it.

    What about the safety spot? 

    In any case, I think we are going to see some trades before or come draft day. I think current players for picks, or combinations of players/picks for picks. 

    Dallas I think is one potential trade partner. I'm sure there are others. I think the point I was trying to drive is;
    1. Our current draft slots will not be the same come day 1, 2 and 3 of the draft
    2. We will actively shop guys on the roster and those guys may be Light (1 year left on contract..aka Seymour and possibly one of our 4 safeties.)

    Kindle doesn't get out of the first round.  Tate likely won't either but if he does, he goes pretty quick in the 2nd.  Graham is 50/50 to be there at 22.  Williams should be there.

    faucet,

    Your latest mock is interesting with the move up for McClain. I don't think anyone would doubt the middle of our defense being a heck of a lot better, or for that matter the front 7. If we added someone like Alualu or Joseph in round 2, I think the defensive front 7 would be comparable to any in the league.

    The only question I have with your mock is not drafting a WR in round 2 or 4. I would rather draft a WR like Sanders or DWilliams with your Gerhart pick, and use 205 on a RB, or hold steady with who we have on the roster at RB this year, and look to draft a RB next year. 

    I agree the position needs to be upgraded, but I would fill the holes first, and I think WR is a big one. This of course assumes the Pats don't do something creative or pick up a vet via trade. Not sure who is left out there, or is available, but perhaps we could grab a proven vet for a couple of our later round picks or something next year. 

    The more I consider who we could grab with a move up to 10, the more I like standing pat at 22 and keeping our 2nds. I know BB will probably do something with those 2nds, possibly trading 1 into next year for a 1st. Imagine 3 firsts with a rookie pay scale..brilliant.

    Re: 2010 Mock Rounds 1-6

    I think very strongly about 3 things.

    1) BB will move a currently player for another player, or picks.  The player for player thing is much more likely in this uncapped year than ever before.

    2) BB is very unlikely to draft 12+ players for this team this year.  I think the limit will be 10, and the sweat spot is likely about 8-9 players.  I would love to see 5 in the first 2 rounds, plus the compensatory picks.

    3) BB is likely to use the 4th, 6th, and 7th's to move up in the draft. 

    Ideally we move AT, Light, A safety, maybe a Brace or pryor or Wright for some 2-4th round picks, and then package them to move up to top 50 picks.  I really think the Pats will be moving around in this draft, and hope to heck they find about 4 impact players, with at least 1 elite one.  Give me impact at LB, WR, OL, and either DL, RB, or TE and I will be a happy man.

    Re: 2010 Mock Rounds 1-6

    Vollmer started over NC in the playoff game so I think Vollmer is officially locked down one of the tackle spots.

    You projections look interesting when you add them to the team. My initial comment though was that the OLB's could be a little weak against the run. I'd be worried about the edges getting exploited. I would also say Pouncey is one of those guys who will start day 1 over Koppen (similar to Mayo over Bruschi just because there's some a big talent difference). 

    Only a few more weeks til the Pats add some real talent to the team! Exciting stuff...

    I'm surprised no one has really talked about Thaddeus Gibson. He does'nt look bad on tape, is rising, pats have a workout scheduled, ran a 4.6, tested well in liebacker drills and is rated as a second round prospect. On tape he looks long, his arms look very long. He looks a step slower than hughes, kindle, and Sapp, but looks like he moves well. Of course the kid from Virginia looks faster than all of them and is said to have long arms, but looks like a one trick pony.

    The kid from VTech I take it?..Jason Worilds?...i like him a lot, but doubt he'll make it to round 4 and beyond where we pick again. I don't see us drafting him in round 2, but perhaps if we moved up?...he's an interesting prospect...played DE at VTech but because of his size, could possibly move to OLB or ILB...sound familiar?...He's roughly the same size Tedy B was when he played and made the move to ILB. I think he could be very successful playing the ILB position in the NFL. 

    I wonder if the Pats have met with him, or where they have him on their board?

    Big earthquake just hit.  Wasn't too bad where I live but it was a 6.9 south of Mexicali, about 100 miles or so from me.  House shook for about a minute, water was sloshing all around the pool.  Crazy.

    Lifer,

    I'd love for us to take a WR high but BB just doesn't seem to like doing it.  My mock was as much to do with trying to predict what he might do vs. what I would do.  I'll do a depth chart with who I would pick assuming no trades and based on who I think there is at least a 50/50 chance of them being available.

    Re: 2010 Mock Rounds 1-6

    I might do something like this which is crazy because this is a defensive draft and defense seems our biggest need.  I look at how young our defense is and how old our offense has become so I went heavy on offense.  I didn't address OLB until late in the draft because I'm just not sold on any of the available ones.  Besides, I think being in the nickel as much as we are we can get by with the LBs we have.

    I went with Damaryius Thomas at #22 because this will be the last year for Randy Moss and to find a player with his size and speed and big play ability is rare.  McCluster was a 3 for 1 player to me, we need help in the return game and back up in the slot in case Edelman gets hurt.  DM also can take over for Faulk on 3rd down once he retires.

    I think Alualu, who has played 34DE, could end up being one of the best DL in the draft.  Jimmy Graham is a bit of a reach and very raw.  He has off the chart measureables and if he develops he could end up being the steal of the century.

    Yeah Worilds. Boy is he explosive, but all the highlights I've seen show him heading up field as fast as he can. Seems like he is a little lost out there. You think he's a good enough ball player to move to the middle and understand what he's supposed to do?

    Re: 2010 Mock Rounds 1-6

    Watching Worilds reminds me of a young john abraham, except abraham is bigger and better of course. He's got that unusual speed that tackles fear. Watching the qb's that he faces, they all have to rush there throws with this guy coming around the edge. I don't like the fact that he is always going up against slower right tackles; I'd like to see what he does against a good left tackle.

    In the run game, for a small guy he doesn't get driven back. He does get locked up and sealed on the blocks though. But man can he run and he's an athlete, this guy is going to be a nice project for some team and a nice situational type right away.

    Wow -- OFFENSE.  I like it.  Great post.   Everyone keeps saying we need to draft heavy D, but with so much YOUTH on our D I wonder if we aren't jumping the gun in letting these guys -- Crable, D. Butler, Chung, McKenzie, even Brace and Wheatley -- come along? 

    Love McCluster and Alualu but I'd rather have Golden Tate at #22 (it's a little high but NO WAY we see him at #44).  One reason why is he sounds like a safer pick and a great teammate.  Another reason is I can see the Jets drafting him and my last reason is NEXT YEAR we go for the #1 WR with our OAK pick. There's 3 blue chip wideouts expected to come out next year and with McNabb to Washington, I think we'll be able to grab one.  Jimmy Graham in the 2nd seems like a reach for a developmental player.  Maybe OL?

    Thanks, yeah I went back and forth between Saffold and taking another offensive weapon.  Jimmy Graham's value is in the 3rd.  He is so raw but upside is amazing!!  By far the safer route would be Pitta or Hernandez both which should be there.  In my previous mock I was taking Pouncey at 22. 

    I think Golden Tate is safer, no question.  But I like D. Thomas's upside so much more.  Either player would give us a ligit #3 option.

    I'm glad we think alike with our defense.  We have to give them time to develop and learn.  So many young guys with 1-3 years experience.  BB will personally see to it this year to work with them.  I think they will improve just by getting more reps.  We have to take a DT type with the great value this year.  We could hold off and just take Geathers and a couple of late round prospects since we have starting talent now with the acquisition of Lewis.

    I love McCluster but also like Gerhart, Hardesty and Tate.  Those three guys make more sense than McCluster but I worry about our kick return game and with no Welker, our punt return game.  Brandon Tate is supposed to be good in this area so maybe we should change things.

    Re: 2010 Mock Rounds 1-6

    How about Ed Wang, the OT from Vtech. He started all games at the LT and is known to be extremly versatile and can play C/G too. As a former TE, he has amazing speed and burst. His size is comparable to Light. If drafted, he could try split RT duties with NK and Light and Seabass could take care of LT. If things go well, we have Seabass as LT and Wang at RT. He should be avilable in 4th round and I think is worth the pick.

    I dont mind an O heavy draft as long as we get atleast 1 OLB in the 1st 2 rds.
    Maybe:
    22--Graham OLB/De
    44--Williams WR
    47--Saffold OT
    53--Pitta TE
    119--Tate or Blount RB

    Pats7393, in regard to not wanting a C/OG in the 1st, Pouncey's talent and size are lightyears ahead of the rest.  No one is even close IMHO.
    Posted by MordecaiBloodmoon


    I agree, Pouncey and then the rest not close, my point was I see a bigger need at RT than I do at center or guard.  One thing I was thinking while driving 4 hours back from a short weekend trip was what if the Pats do something they seem to do often draft trenches early.  So to go with most who seem to have jump on pouncey (can't blame anyone for that), if Pouncey is the pick at 22 here's how I would like to see the rest.

    22 Pouncey C/G
    44 Jerry Hughes OLB
    47 Alex Carrington DE
    53 Ben Tate RB
    119 A.J. Edds OLB
    (not the pass rush stud but a great LB) with the team playing more and more nickle Edds will be the LB next to mayo
    6th Marcus Easley WR
    6th (comp) Tony Washington OT
    7th Scott Sicko TE

    7th Doug Worthington DE
    7th (comp) Sam Shields WR/CB/PR
    7th (comp) Kelton Tindal WR/KRmight be the fastest guy drafted 4.23, raw player won't lie but for a 7th he will have not pressure on him and can contribute in special teams while learning to be an NFL WR.
    7th (comp) Alfonso Smith RB too much upside not to take him

    I was listening to a sports show and they made a very good point, with the depth of this draft UDFA will be very very active the second the draft is over so got me thinking are there really guys that will go undrafted that have a chance to get picked up and make a team so here are some names who we can hear been signed.  Including guys who actually have a chance to actually making the team.

    Mike Johnson ILBadds depth at the position and good special teams guy, because of coming out of a small school his name has not been heard often if at all.  Do a bit of research on him and you might be surprised to what some scouts are saying.
    Greg Boone TE- this is one of the first guys I sign as a FA, versatile player took direct snaps at VA Tech. 6'3 282 has soft hands and very athletic for his size.  Is ok blocker but has upside to develop into a great one.
    Tim Knicky OLB- School Stephen F. Austin WHO?! will not be an everydown LB but has excellent speed and rush abilities at worse he becomes a special teams guy.
    Kevin Alexander OLB6'3" 265 good size and speed, can add depth
    A.J. Wallace CB has cover skills, averaged 19.5 yards per punt return

    There are a number of serviceable special team type players and some who can be considered upgrades over some of our backups, even a starter or two out there.
