Here is my Stab..
#22 DE/OLB-Brandon Graham-Michigan
Lit it up in the Senior Bowl. hough the height isn't there, he has good speed and weight and will be the force the Pats need to spark the Pass Rush. Though his sack totals aren't quite as good as Jerry Hughes, his TFL's exceed them.
#42 TE-Jermaine Gresham-Oklahoma
Coming off an injury really cost him a selection in the mid-1st. This makes him an excellent value in the 2nd round, and one that BB would pounce on (ex. Brandon Tate). With Watson leaving, Gresham is a very well rounded TE, who could focus on pass catching with an elite blocking TE like Chris Baker, but also block when needed. At 6-6, 260, he would be nearly impossible to contain in the red zone with his great hands.
#48 OT-Kyle Calloway-Iowa
A big, strong, and all-round tackle, Calloway projects as a very solid RT in the NFL. Moving Vollmer over to the left would give the Pats great protection on the outside, and not to mention, two 6-8 monsters at Tackle.
#53 WR-Arrelious Benn-Illinois
A big deep threat with decent speed, and someone to play across from Randy Moss. This is a reciever that will not draw the #4 CB, and will allow the Pats more creativity outside the deep ball to Moss and short pass to Edelman (or Welker). Could, like mentioned above, become Randy Moss's heir.
#118 HB-LaGarrette Blount-Oregon
A bruising back, Brandon Jacobs 2.0, and the time burning, power back the Pats need. Had a tremendous Senior Bowl, but Character concerns drop this 2nd rd talent into the 3rd-4th. However, those are the players BB will take a chance on (Meriweather, Tate, Dillon, Moss, etc). Might have to trade into Rd 3 for him when DraftDay rolls around.
Rd 6-P-Zoltan Mesko-Michigan
No clue about him, but the Pats could afford to upgrade from Chris Hanson and this guy is ESPN's #1 Punter.
Feedback (negative and positive) is welcome and requested.
