Re: 2011 Patriots Draft Options ***WITH NEW MOCK***

Thought on the Raiders before I post my last mock for a few weeks, there are a few games to be played and my Jrs will not announce if the choose to come out for a few months still.
Raiders are 6-6 with 4 games left:
@ Jacksonville - Jags should win this game
Vs Broncos - Will have to see how the Broncos play for their new coach but after a 59-14 A $$ kicking in Denver, don't see the broncos winning, Raiders
vs Indy - The colts will need to win out to make the playoffs, they won't loss this game, Colts
@ KC - Possible the playoffs and division is determined by the winner of this game if the CHargers win out. KC will need to win to win their division while the raiders have their Uhauls packed up. Chiefs
Final record 7-9 with that record the pick should fall 12 to 16, I say it falls at 14 Although I believe Ayers or Kerrigan will fall into range. Two reasons I still wait to pickup the OLB; one Harris is a very good CB and has a bright future, can do it all and second there are two OLBs that I'm extremely high on even more than Kerrigan and Ayers. These two OLBs will make an impact, they are fast, quick and best of all know how to get to the QB.
Looking at this mock, there are names (actually a ton) that are not been talked about much but they will be in a few months. #14 Brandon Harris CB 5'11" 195 JR
Very talented, has shutdown abilities. Plays well zone and man as well as run support.#32 Alson Smith OLB 6'5" 260 JR(redshirt sophmore)
My pick for an everydown OLB, great first step sets the edge. Biggest question is, does he come out if he does he might need to be had with the 14th. 1st of my 2 OLBs.#33 Dontay Moch OLB 6'1" 242
I know what you are all thinking, BB doesn't draft OLBs under 6'3" well he also didn't line up CBs at DE but he did with Arrinton. Moch is a great pass rusher and rumors to have sub 4.30 40 time. He's not only fast but he does get the sacks, plays with leverage and uses different moves to get to the QB. He will be a nightmare on passing downs and all special teams. Remember the name.
#62 Lawrence Guy DE 6'5" 300 JR
Another stud Jr. He is a run stuffing DE who makes a ton of plays in the backfield. Has a nonestop motor and brings a passrush.
3rd rnd (Min) Anthony Allen RB 6'0" 230
Alot will be said about what type of RB and offense this kids comes from at Georgia Tech (my back yard :) but he can run. He's a powerful RB who will run people over. He's got both power and speed to run through and can make moves in the open field. Really like this kid.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8LBXClhyzm0
Look at powerhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lAb_0ZuwGnw&NR=1
watch some speed3rd Rnd (Pats) Andrew Jackson OL 6'5" 295
The Next Logan Mankins? Question asked on the article I'm posting. He sounds like a guy who would be a great addition to this line. I have not seen him play but have not found any negative on this kid. Until I get shown where he's not worth the pick I like what I've been reading so far. http://draftcountdown.com/draft-blog/2010/11/athletes-maulers/
4th Rnd Lee Ziemba OT 6'8" 308
He's not talked about much but is a good option in the 4th. I've been saying that Light is back which will give Ziemba a year or two to work on his skills in the NFL.
5th Rnd Armand Robinson WR 6'0" 200
Has lead Miami of Ohio in catches, he plays in the slot and runs good routes. He has the speed and hands to play inside or outside. Just another weapon in the type of O the Pats have moved to.
6th Rnd Zach Hurd OG 6'7" 315
This is more of wishful thinking that anything else, Hurd probably doesn't get pass the 4th or maybe 5th round but had to get his name here.
Let me give you two UDFAs you hope to see in camp next season:
Craig Marshall DE/OLB 6'5" 260
he hasn't had a real chance to play because of guys like George Selvie and Jason Pierre-Paul and when he did this season he got hurt so missed a few games. Very quick off the edge.
Michael Janac DE/DT 6'5" 294
One word describes this kid, RAW. Very powerful and runs well for a 300 lb man. He will need to develop, yes but give him a year or 2 in this system can turn into a very good DE. At worse, he is Wrights replacement in a few years.
