    Every player the Patriots picked were mentioned on these Patriots' draft threads. Some even predicted the McCourty pick.

    In Response to Re: 2011 Patriots Draft Options ***UPDATED WITH MOCK V1*** : Titus Young has been getting a lot of play here.  He is a talent, but Mb pointed out he has some off-the-field issues, unsure how serious they are.  Seems to me this draft could be loaded with WR talent.  If Broyles comes out as rumored he would have to be considered a first round talent.  If Blackmon, Green, Jones, Floyd and Baldwin all declare this would be a sick draft for WRs.
    Posted by Faucetman

    Titus Young was suspended for most of the season 2 years ago during his sophmore year. It was unclear what the reason was. The team was pretty tight lipped about it. I don't think he has had any major issues since. But it will all be fully investigated before the draft.

    The 2011 draft talent in combo with the quality & quantity of the Pats' picks is IMO, an unprecedented opportunity to build another multi-SB team.

    With the Raider 1st Rounder Pats MUST select a D-man who is a QB killer/disrupter:
    1. Akeem Ayers, OLB (UCLA) is my top choice - non-stop motor, speed, size
    2. Jared Crick, DL (Neb) is my 2nd choice
    3. Von Miler, OLB (TaxAM) is my 3rd choice

    With Pats 1st Rounder and Carolina 2nd Rounder we have a chance to nail a CB, and/or WR and/or RB:
    1. Jimmy Smith CB (Colo.) has great size and speed, giving Pats a future star to back-up Bodden and McCourty immediately
    2. Demarco Murray RB (Ok) his great speed to the outside and superior catching ability is the perfect complement to BJGE's inside style and TB's passing.
    3. Michael Floyd WR (ND) or Jon Baldwin WR (Pitt) both tall, fast deep, stretch the Defence Randy Moss style receivers.

    I think with any 3 of these guys Pats have the missing pieces to once and for all pass Jets and become SB favorites.

    Too high for Crick and there are better 3-4 DEs out there.  Miller is more of a 4-3 OLB or at best a pass rush specialist in a 3-4.  And with a 1st rd pick u want more than that from him.  Like the RB and WR. 

    Dont care about passing the Jets as favorites, just like beating them when it counts.

    Good points on Crick and Miller.  I guess I have my heart set on Akeem Ayers ... so not enough thought on the other 15'th'ish overall picks ... I guess Heyward from Ohio St. is the safest DE pick for 15th?

    Re: 2011 Patriots Draft Options ***UPDATED WITH MOCK V1***

    Oakland isn't fading as we hoped.  Their pick could now end up being in the 18-20 range.  If so, we can forget about landing one of the stud DEs or Kerrigan unless we are prepared to make a significant move up, which is something BB doesn't do.  So, I think our pass rushing OLB will have to come later in the draft if at all.  BB may feel that guys like Cunningham and Fletcher just need more time to develop; the same goes for the DL. 

    I now think we may be looking at OT with the Raider pick.  There are 4-5 guys who are in the 15-30 range.  I could see us dropping down a few spots picking up some later round picks and still coming away with a Carimi, Solder, Love, Sherrod or Castonzo in the 25-28 range.  If history is any lesson, we will trade down our OAK pick.  We traded down our first pick three drafts in a row now.  In 2008, we were at 7 and traded down to 10 to select Mayo.  In 2009 we traded out of the 1st round completely and drafted Chung at 34 ending up with 4 second rounders.  In 2010, we traded down twice in the first round finally selecting McCourty at #27 and ended up with 3 second rounders.  We began the draft with no 3rd or 5th round picks but ended up with both taking Price and Mesko.  This will very likely happen again since we don't have any sure picks after the 4th except for perhaps a 6th for David Thomas and a 6th comp pick for Watson.

    The draft looks to be very deep at WR.  If all the top juniors come out I count 12 guys with 3rd round or better grade.  The same goes for RB.  I count 15 with 3rd or 4th round or better grades if all top juniors RBs come out.  So, unless there is someone we are in love with, we could hold off on those positions until the MIN pick.  BB typically doesn't draft WR or RB high anyway. 

    A major need area as we all know is C/OG.  We could use two of them.  I see Hudson and Wisniewski as first round worthy.  Personally I think Hudson is too slight but someone will take him.  If Wisniewski is hanging around with our late first, CAR second, he would make a ton of sense.  We could play him at either guard position until Koppen moves on.  For centers the only other guy who I'd take before the 4th round would be O'Dowd perhaps late 2nd or with the MIN 3rd.  I also like Moffitt and Schilling in this range.  BB has also been very good with developing OGs from late rounds or as UDFA.  He might draft one, develop one. 

    If we don't go OT at the top of our draft, we could take Lee Ziemba a little later on.  Most boards have him in the 4-5 round range.  I think he ends up going late 2nd to late 3rd.

    Another question mark is at kicker.  Does anyone know the extend of Gostkowski's injury?  I think I heard it was some type of muscle tear in the thigh of his kicking leg.  If we end up with an extra 3rd or 4th, the kid from Nebraska would make a nice insurance policy.

    I'm not sure he will be in reach now.  Kerrigan will be looked at as a 43 DE and 34 OLB making him a hot commodity.  He could easily go top 10.

    i think you are right about taking an OT there. i know this class is not regarded as having elite OTs, but i think OT is one position, other than QB, where there's going to be inflation. like QB position, too many teams are realizing they need to strengthen their OLs and OT is where many of them need upgrades.

    Kerrigan has to show the measurables to get picked that high by a 3-4 team. A 4-3 team could take a chance, but if he comes in 4.8+ (maybe 4.7+), he's not going to be looked at by a 3-4 team as a late first rounder at best.

    If the Pats want an big, strong, fast pass rusher Akeem Ayer is the man. Also a team Cpt at UCLA. Right now Pats have NO depth at OLB. Ninko works hard, but he should be the No. 4 in a 4 man OLB rotation. TBC, a No.3.

    Ayers and Cunningham would be a sweet 1/2 combo.

    Re: 2011 Patriots Draft Options ***UPDATED WITH MOCK V1***

    if i may borrow rocky's draft order, this is how i think the teams will pick.

    1. Carolina Panthers (1-10) they'll pick Luck -- /> will affect those needing QB
    2. Detroit Lions (2-9) -- CB
    3. Cincinnati Bengals (2-9) -- DE (but will probably trade for QB back up who could start)
    4. Buffalo Bills (2-9) -- DT/DE
    5. Arizona Cardinals (3-8) -- QB
    6. Dallas Cowboys (3-8) -- best available, likely a DL
    7. Denver Broncos (3-8) -- DL (but one who's at least 300 lbs)
    8. San Francisco 49ers (4-7) -- OT (they hae a 35 yr old LT)
    9. Minnesota Vikings (4-7) -- may not be able to resist taking a QB
    10. Cleveland Browns (4-7) -- WR (a weapon for McCoy)
    11. St. Louis Rams (5-6) -- WR (weapon for Bradford) but could go OT
    12. Oakland Raiders (NWE) (5-6) -- ???
    13. Seattle Seahawks (5-6) -- OT
    14. Washington Redskins (5-6) -- CB
    15. Tennessee Titans (5-6) -- DE (but will draft a back up QB)
    16. Houston Texans (5-6) -- CB
    17. San Diego Chargers (6-5) -- best available
    18. Indianapolis Colts (6-5) -- OT/OG
    19. Miami Dolphins (6-5) -- DE (a speedy one)
    20. Jacksonville Jaguars (6-5) -- DE
    21. Kansas City Chiefs (7-4) -- WR
    22. New York Giants (7-4) -- best defensive talent, likely a DE
    23. Tampa Bay Bucs (7-4) -- LB
    24. Philadelphia Eagles (7-4) -- DE, a chance of taking OT to give Vick more time
    25. Green Bay Packers (7-4) -- CB (woodson turning 35)
    26. New Orleans Saints (8-3) -- DE (as of last week, but it seems the D is playing better now)
    27. Chicago Bears (8-3) -- OL
    28. Baltimore Ravens (8-3) -- CB
    29. Pittsburgh Steelers (8-3) -- OL
    30. New York Jets (9-2) -- OT (woody is also getting old)
    31. Atlanta Falcons (9-2) -- DT
    32. New England Patriots (9-2) ???

    Yes, I think OT is a strong possibility there.  I don't think we can rule out a DE/OLB type or a CB either.  Besides Kerrigan there could be Quinn, Bowers, Ayers, Houston, Beal and maybe Hightower, but I doubt he comes out.  Another position that is deep with potential first round talent is WR if the juniors declare. 

    I don't see any RBs worthy of a first round pick but there are a ton of them I have rated between the early 2nd and mid 4th, perhaps 12 or more.
