    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

    i like Acho more than Reed.

    In Response to Re: 2011 Patriots Draft Options ***IT'S GO TIME!*** : 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.
    Posted by vertigho

    There is nothing safe with either of our picks yet.  Both are physical freaks but both have issues.  Dowling with injury and Solder with playing too high.  Both are boom or bust picks IMO.  Let's hope they are booms.

    I think sometimes he just overthinks himself....don't understand it unless he truly has his eye on someone in free agency...a known commodity.

    Houston didn't move up and down...they simply took the two hustle players...both play like Bruschi...

    Broncos w/ back to back picks could be a logical trade partner if Bill wants to move up

    Sorry Mb.  Your man Rudolph is gone.  I'm kinda glad.  We didn't need him yet.  He went one spot below Gronk.

    Damn guys, all we hear all season is, "When are the Pats going to get rid of all these smurf DBs and get a big corner?" and now nobody wants the big corner? ;)
    Posted by PeaceLaur

    actually i had the big corner on my list.
    it just was not one of the top 3 needs. it was down on the list. we are not handling need #'s 1 and 2 (de, olb).

    In Response to Re: 2011 Patriots Draft Options ***IT'S GO TIME!*** : No. No, I don't like Dowling as a prospect. I think he was a guy that you maybe take in the 3rd round. I do not think he will be more than a JAG starter or 'depth' in the NFL, with a low floor of being cut in two-three seasons. They passed on Brooks Reed. I think Brooks Reed will be a huge success.  It's that simple. I disagree with how BB and NE are drafting this second round.  Is that clear?

    btw with a stay on the ruling there will be no FA until the appeal is held so I wouldn't count on a FA coming in as a pass rusher right now

    I think Detroit has done some good things so far....good for them...they have sucked for a long time...Titus Young is a good selection opposite CJ

    Yea. Unlike Reed, you can actually see Acho set the edge in college. Acho is also an elite athlete.

    I see where you are coming from brdbreu. I want the front seven help as well.

    I was just trying to lighten the mood a little so nobody throws themself from the top of Gillette Stadium.

    I'm still holding out hope for Bailey. He's not going to improve our pass rush but he's a solid player that  think is an upgrade over Nin or TBC. Would compliment Cunningham nicely as a 3 down LB

    In Response to Re: 2011 Patriots Draft Options ***IT'S GO TIME!***:
    What I don't get is why can't we do a little Jets mentality when we have the ammo once every couple years? We have a ton of picks and these players make for a good all around team but you need some type of impact players eventually. Most agree that we're very close so why can't we take a page from the Jets and trade up and take a shot on 1 or 2 impact players and take the safe picks later? I don't want to do the Jets draft every year but you have to admit doing it once every 5 years or so only getting a couple impact players (2-3) and a couple of projects and still trade a couple picks into next year would have been nice this year. You won't get an extra 1st or 2nd next year but an extra 3rd or 4th and then rebuild your stock again so in a couple years you can do it again and get a couple more impact players. But as it looks maybe Oak is going to trade. I'd be happy to get their2nd this year and 1st next year other then that they appear like a team in a weak division that has a shot to make the playoffs. I'd rather try to work something out with a Was or Cinn even if it's #33 for a 1st next year straight up. I think it would be a top 10 which is much more value then a mid 2nd this year and a pick potentially in the 17-25 range

    eng, i've made the same points without the jets reference and without the 5 year idea, just where its appropriate.

    Got to respect that Rahim Moore stuck it out in the green room, unlike Akeem Ayers who took his ball and went home after day one.

    BB loves to draft LB's in the 5th round and don't forget the immortal TBC was an Undrafted Free Agent

    Outkast---Chill!  I understand you are angry with how the Patriots have drafted, but take some deep breaths! Patriots still have a lot of picks and have UDFA's (where they have been done well in the past)
