    In Response to Re: 2010 Mock Rounds 1-6:


    Easly is legit, he can certainly be a return man but he has the size and speed to develop into a top WR.  I have seen reports about the Pats showing interest in the 6'3" 210 sub 4.4 40.  His best football is ahead of him, has good hands but needs as a lot of WRs, work running routes.  He's projected in the 6th although he is getting some attention.  Possible replacement for Moss?

    McClain played with Butler actually both did both are Connecticut players so a connection there and BB does pay some attention to that school

    I read an interview with Butler where he says all his coverage in UConn were taken from the Patriots.  He said only the terminology was different but responsibilities were the same.  This could help another UConn guy transition and could compete with the Ws for the 4th spot.

    Also I'm noticing the theme here, a lot of the visits are for late rounders or UDFAs.  McClain is not projected to be drafted, I think they are looking for solid players late in the draft.  Could this be an indicator they are about to trade picks early to move up?

    I don't remember where I read it, might've been on here (something you or Low posted maybe?), but it's been stated that you shouldn't believe anything you hear in regards to player interest after a specific pre-draft date (April 1 maybe?) as most teams already have their draft boards completed.  So yes, it makes sense that they're doing their homework on some potential late round, URFA prospects.  I don't think it's so much that they're looking to move up as it is a reflection of how thorough and wide ranging their personnel dept is.

    That was me. It's a rule of thumb that draft boards are very well set prior to April 1st except for minor tweaking usually consisting of final details about health follow up's and off field background checks etc.

    Working on a new article and looking to add some context to some of these stats.

    Respond with any insightful information about any of these players/team situations that are relevant to their stats OR lack there of.

    Things like; the QB was awful, multiple qb's, not a throwing team, heavy throwing team, was stuck behind multiple current NFL stud WR's on the depth chart, coach change, had a great qb, played against below avg talent every week, he was the only player the opposition had to stop, etc.

    I was wondering what you meant by what I highlighted.  Move up where?

    I came across Easley some time ago and was wondering why this guy was being some what over looked.  You can't teach size and speed so what's wrong with this guy?

    That is what teams are trying to evaluate for themselves. He only did it for one season so I am sure they are trying to figure out why.

    What I mean is the pats have holes to fill, with all their 6th and 7th round picks can they be looking to package a couple of their first 4 picks to move up and grab a player that migth slip down a bit.  So giving them less picks in the first two rounds but, with 4 comp picks in the last two rounds there are players this year that should make a roster and contribute whether on O or D specially in special teams.

    Re: 2010 Mock Rounds 1-6

    What was Marcus Easley doing for two years?

    He was playing in an offense that was built around on Donald Brown, once he was gone last year the personal they had in 2009 dictated a passing attack rather and been a running team.

    He was was used primarily before 2009 as a PR I believe and last year when they decided to throw he stepped up.

    If you are comparing and constrating the receivers' production vs. potential, shouldn't you include Freddies Barnes?

    Thanks,

    I figured as much about Harvin.

    Interesting grades at DraftAce for each player

    8.
    Florida
    77
    15.
    Louis MurphyFlorida
    66
    11.Riley CooperFlorida
    74
    31.
    Florida
    40

    If his grades are remotely accurate you would think he'd have seen more opportunities. I would hate to be in a position to make decisions on those 1 yr guys. I won't say why he probably got over looked early at Florida. ;-)

    Yes you could certainly throw his name in that list also. I like Freddie Barnes late.

    However, what I was working off is the idea or Wide Receivers who either made the "Our Lads" weighted list of better than avg quickness, speed, change of direction OR one of the Scouts darlings of the Year. OR both if the player falls into both categories.

    Freddie Doesn't actually fall in either category so that and mainly time is why he is not listed. There are some others that made the "OurLads" list I did not include also.

    Of those two criteria I listed above I tried to also keep in mind players that have been associated with the Patriots interest in one fashion or another. I have not seen all on the listed I posted mentioned with the Patriots but many have.

    By the way do you know if Freddie was hurt in 2008? Very down year compared to 2007 and 2009.

    From ESPN Insider:

    Penn State defensive lineman Jared Odrick got some rave reviews from an NFL general manager. The anonymous GM told ESPN affiliate Nittany Network: "I like Odrick. He'll be a hell of a pro. He's like Dave Butz was with the old Redskins. He's a throwback as a player; he's a real good three-down player. He can rush the passer; he's excellent against the run and he has a real knack for the game. There are no holes to this guy. He's as safe a pick with talent as you'll get on the board. He'll be a good to Pro Bowl type of pro. He's ready to come in and be a starter."

    He's all over the place from as low as 27/8 all the way up to the rumor of the Cleveland Browns taking him at #7.

    Hello, everyone. I meant to keep up with posting here, and I've forgotten again. I usually post over at PatsFans these days, but I used to be more involved here as well. I'm enjoying reading along!

    I just posted this over at PatsFans, so I thought I'd share it here, too.

    Lately I've been really intrigued by a lot of the small school and lesser-known players in the draft, and I decided I'd throw together a depth chart/roster of players projected to go undrafted to illustrate the depth and quality available late in the draft. Bolded players I'd like to see the Patriots consider drafting.

    Please play along and do your own. Smile

    In Response to Re: 2010 Mock Rounds 1-6 : faucet, why r u so high on this kid? he comes out of a spread offence and has no route running skills what so ever, havent seen him in months due to the foot injury so u know that toughness would be an issue, best WR in this daft is Damian Williams, hes got blazing speed, great hands great routes, and go over the middle hes got it all and people dont seem to see that...

    The thing I am most impressed with was how he catches balls with his hands at full extension and at the top of his leap. In the NFL the DB's are much better and will be there stride for stride on most plays, D. Thomas will still be able to come away with the ball because of how he uses his body as a shield and catches the ball up high and away from the defender. Against most Rec the DB will get a tip on the ball but against D. Thomas that extra few inches will make an imense difference. Now his height and speed are good but this seemingly natural technigue is what sets him apart in my mind from all the other 6ft+, 4.4sec rec that we could get. I do like D. Williams though, wouldn't be against drafting him, I also like Sanders and Roberts. These 4 are my guys, pass on Decker, Benn, and most others. I like Tate as well but not at 22 if I could get one of these others in the 2nd or 3rd. If Tate was there in the 2nd that might change my thinking. One more question, say D. Thomas was the most dangerous vertical threat in the game, how much would he then really need to run a full route tree? I think he would pull double teams regardless and not complain about doing it, that is as important a job as actualy catching the ball.

    I know a couple of us have mocked this guy to the Pats, I know I started him been drafted in the 7th but now down to the 4th. 

    He was hosted by the Pats, he can be an option at OLB.  If they liked him and think he is good enough to be the LB they want to draft it gives the first 4 picks to fill other hole or even trading on of the 2nd rounders for a 3rd and 5th or 2011 picks.

    Re: 2010 Mock Rounds 1-6

    I'd be worried that's a smokescreen. Why would an NFL general manager tell ESPN he really likes Odrick? I question it because most reports from scouts say they are unsure if he can make the switch to a 3-4 DE. Glowing reports like that can only inflate Odrick's status, which an interested general manager wouldn't want to do. 

    I only question it because the report is so glowing, and most see him less favorably. The 'safe' comment in particular caught me as funny. He's a possible conversion guy from Penn State. How do those guys usually work out? I wouldn't go crazy over Odrick over one report. He's does fit the body prototype for a 3-4 end, but who knows how he can play the position.

    Plus, the named GM might not be Nick Caserio and the Pats may not like him. Everyone evaluates talent differently.


    In Response to Re: 2010 Mock Rounds 1-6:
    From ESPN Insider: Penn State defensive lineman Jared Odrick got some rave reviews from an NFL general manager. The anonymous GM told ESPN affiliate Nittany Network : "I like Odrick. He'll be a hell of a pro. He's like Dave Butz was with the old Redskins. He's a throwback as a player; he's a real good three-down player. He can rush the passer; he's excellent against the run and he has a real knack for the game. There are no holes to this guy. He's as safe a pick with talent as you'll get on the board. He'll be a good to Pro Bowl type of pro. He's ready to come in and be a starter."

    You gotta believe in your draft board and how your picks were assessed.  If you doubt it at all you're sunk.

    Golden Tate- My feelings on him are well documented. I didn't know you liked him haha, he would be a great addition I just don't know at 22 if Kindle, Graham are there I think both would be bigger value vs need but i wouldn't be calling a bad pick at all.  He would be a #2 or 3 at worse this year. Demaryius Thomas- Tough to overlook his upside. Although I think he's an option at 22 I think they are high on Marcus Easley, tall fast and is raw in route running as is thomas Easley can be had in the 4th. Dexter McCluster- Quick, versatile productive, good pedigree. He would be a matchup nightmare and a great screen option. Eric Decker- Tough, smart and ultra productive. Wish he was a little faster but really good target Blair White- Simply loves the game of football, good quickness. Another big target, see Thomas for thoughts. Riley Cooper- Good size and quickness. Like Cooper but not sure if he can turn into a #1 which I would like a guy his size to be. Andre Roberts- Good quickness, no longer under the radar? Secret is out and teams are bringing him in for workouts.  I have him been picked by the Pats at #53. Emmanuel Sanders- Excellent speed, quickness and production. If Roberts is not picked Sanders is an option Scott Long- Good size and quickness. can play but is he smart enough?  Twice academic ineligible. Kerry Meier- Good size and quickness, also smart and is a former QB. interesting player, could be worth a shot might not even be drafted A couple of other guys Davis Getts big and fast 6'3" 217 also catches well.  For a big receiver he has good feet and can run different routes including curls. Marcus Easley - Fast is the word on him, he's been getting tons of attention seen him now as a 4th rounder.  Needs to improve route running, could be a #1 in two years. Kelton Tindal 6'2" 197 4.32 with hands to match the speed.  Right now could end up not been drafted but I would use a 7th on him.  He can be a great PR while he develops as a receiver. Joe Webb converted QB he is rising up boards, he can become a very good receiver but that is all projections right now.  Threw for 2200 and ran for 1000+ two years in a row.

    That's true he has similar numbers to Taylor Price but no one really even talked much about Ford until he ran a fast 40 time.

    I, personally have not watch game film on all the receivers. Only the position drill films from the combine for all of them.
