#22 to SD for #28 and #92 (SD selects Ryan Matthews)
#53 to JAX for #74 and #143 (JAX selects Tim Tebow)
Matt Light to CHI for #141
#28 Jared Odrick-DL-Penn State
While he may not be the most glamorous pick, BB has gone with lineman four times in the past decade. Odrick at this point is the best lineman-both offensive and defensive-on the board right now. He was a solid pass rusher in college and should be a starter very soon.
#44 Koa Misi-DE/OLB-Utah
A great pass rusher, the best on the board at this point. Misi should step in and have an impact on our awful pass rush on Day 1. May start at OLB when the season ends.
#47 Toby Gerhart-HB-Stanford
The pound it out, break the tackles, power back we need. He can churn time when we need him to-a major problem last year, and get the goal line TD's without fumbling like Maroney. The Heisman runner-up will be a major impact player from Day 1 and the most productive NE rookie.
#74 Andre Roberts-WR-The Citadel
A deep threat opposite Randy Moss-exactly what the Patriots need. BB likes Military school guys and Roberts is obviously one of them. Good size, should be NE's #1 WR of the future.
#92 Dennis Pitta-TE-BYU
The ideal pass-catching TE. He will be a perfect complement to Alge Crumpler and will soon become one of Brady's favorites. Solid size, and great hands and route running make him a great pick at this point. Would likely be a higher pick if his age wasn't an issue-he's already 25yrs old. However, that maybe a plus in BB's mind as adults usually fully mature at 25-26.
#118 Daniel Te'o Neshiem-OLB-Washngton
An absolute beast pass rusher and a steal at this point in the draft. DTN, as we should call him will team up with Misi to strengthen our pass rush, and make our LB corps one of the youngest and strongest in the league.
#141 Donovan Warren-CB-Michigan
1st-2nd round talent. Great size and speed. Will likely slip to the 5th due to a ery poor 40 time. What that means is that the Patriots are getting a steal and strengthen a solid but not great CB crew.
#143 Tony Washington-OT-Albiene Christian
Rather not get into his character concerns-one act is very nasty-but the Pats are getting top-15 talent here. Washington will anchor the RT position for several years as Nick Kazcur can't do it and Vollmer has to move to LT to replace Light.
#190 Scott Sicko-TE-New Hampshire
A local star. Sure he is a workout warrior but he is hard to pass up on at this point in the draft. Should be a solid #3 TE and provide 20-25 receptions a season.
#205 Joe Webb-WR/QB-UAB
An Edelman type prospect. Has good upside and at this point in the draft is worth the pick. We're golden if we find the next Edelman or pickup a backup QB here.
#229 Trevard Lindley-CB-Kentucky
A 1st round prospect before this season, his stock plummetted this year, still in the 7th round he's worth a flyer. He is solid overall-good in man to man, and has pretty good size. Adds more depth to a solid but thin CB crew.
#231 Zoltan Mesko-P-Michigan
We need a Punter, we only have David King, a rugby star who has never punted. Mesko is the best P in the draft. Match-I think so
#247 Scott Long-WR-Louisville
Depth at the WR position. Good value at this point in the draft.
#248 Mike McLaughlin-ILB-BC
Local guy for depth at LB. Good hardworking guy.
#250 Matt McCracken-OG-Richmond
A division II star for depth at OG, rounding out the Draft Class of '10.
It's been a pleasure talking draft for the past few months my friends. The speculation ends this weekend, though I'm hoping we'll all be back for some analysis before the NFL dead period.
