    Agree with vertigho. One of the Patriots' more recent 2nd draft picks that hasn't been very successful (so far) was Ron Brace. He was seen as a need pick at the time because the team wasn't sure they could re-sign Wilfork and he was basically taken as "insurance" at NT. Now that we look back, that pick probably could have been used more wisely on BPA.

    well so far Pats took my #2 ranked OT and #2 ranked CB, feeling good about that but still will feel better once take a shot at addressing some sort of defensive front 7 help.

    The only problem I have with ras-i dowling is that he gets hurt too often he has only play in 5 games since 2010 and on every here he has played even leading back to his high school days... so why not take a chance on Da'Quan Bowers

    Rumor is he has bone on bone cartilage in his knee and will need surgery to tighten ACL and MCL and will be lost a year.  He could slip into the 3rd round now.

    my only gripe is I think both picks we made could have been had lower.  Dowling maybe even at 56.
    Posted by Faucetman



    That's the perception every year with NE though. We have to expect that by now. They have there own value system and you can't go by the draft-niks. 

    They never seem to match up.

    In Response to Re: 2011 Patriots Draft Options ***IT'S GO TIME!*** : I hear ya, and I don't disagree. I can just see BB explaning why he made this pick. There just doesn't seem to be any 3down impact pass rushers left.

    Ohh I understand the pick but you have to take a chance every so often. Playing it safe all the time doesn't get you anywhere. Every so often you have to take a chance on an impact player like he did with Seymour or Mayo or McCourty. He seems to be playing it safe right now not wanting to take the chance

    Dowling?  Looks like Tom is going to have to carry them again this time around. At this draft rate, this team won't improve one bit next season.

    not so fast.  The value for WR and RB is in the 3-4 round.  There is very little talent difference between guys going now and guys who will go 60 picks from now.  We could still land Hankerson or Cobb at 56 or wait until 92 to get Austin Pettis.  We might be able to get LeShoure at 56 or wait until 92 for Todman or 74 for Hunter.  These are just examples but there is little difference in the talent but a big difference in pick location.

    Al Davis wouldn't give up his 2012 #1 & the #48 for the Pats pick and got burned.
    Posted by tartarus12


    Al has to be pissed, he wanted Kaepernick very bad and the 49ers end up taking him.  Im pretty sure this will send Al to the hospital.  He has to be ready to blow his top about this one.

    In Response to Re: 2011 Patriots Draft Options ***IT'S GO TIME!*** : Or, that player of need isn't a good player, and you reached to draft him. He busts and you're back to point 1, a position of need and a wasted pick. By taking the BPA, you more than likely getting a good player regardless. You may not fill a hole, but at least you are upgrading your football team by adding talent.
    Posted by vertigho


    Of you mean like players who don't bust in that late 1st 2nd round range like Butler, Wheatley, Chad Jackson, Watson, or Maroney? All were considered safe picks.

    Those who weren't considered safe picks and most were confused why they were taken McCourty, Vollmer, Mayo, Mankins. Sometimes you have to take a risk and take a chance on a high talent kid that fills a need instead of taking the safe pick

    Posted by PatsLifer

    yes what i have read he does have an injury history
    and pulled a hammy in the combine.
    hes fast and he hits something serious, very physical corner. can paly safety too
    i would have preferred him in rd 3 or 4 due to our needs and due to injury history

    You just said what i was thinking... . Brooks Reed is gone ... the only hope left is if BB takes Justin Houston .... that is if Oakland let's him go.

    I don't think anyone has considered Dowling as a "safe" pick. He has had an injury history and a number of other CB's who were considered "better" players were there.

    As far as I'm concerned, Dowling is a risky pick with a lot of talent, not a "safe" pick by any means.

    I'd respectfully submit there's nothing chancy re: the aforementioned picks. Other than Justin Houston, no 3down olb rusher is projected before the third round. Oops, Reed just went. Better hope for Free Agency.

    Forget the height, Sam Acho is every bit the player Reed is and his character is terrific, no knock on Reed.  I wouldn't mind Marvin Austin if BB likes him off the field.  Austin is every bit the player that Liuget is and close to Fairley.  Could be a beast in 4-3 sets
