    Ahh TB trades to #31, my guess is for Martin, the trade I thought would happen. Lets see what we missed in terms of the trade lol

    Well at S I really like Ron Brooks CB LSU to convert to S.  Hayward is another CB who projects as a possible S.

    Yeah I'd rather have Hightower then moving back 6 spots and moving up in the 4th, good move for BB

    agreed

    Never thought smith was a 1st rounder. Pats need safety help but don't think you reach and always felt Smith was a 2nd round talent. Solid but not 1st rounder imo. Said way back on here I felt there was a very large gap between Barron and Smith.

    I agree. I also didn't think he was a ballhawking FS we've been looking for.

    Next year's S crop is so much deeper and talented then this year. Actually Smith might be the 4th or 5th best S if he was in next years draft

    He got two really high upside LBs, one in Hightower that can play a multiple of roles and a DE/OLB who is according to Mayock only going to get better and bigger and all this while still holding on to his two #2s.

    I don't think he uses those 2 and trades back for more picks.

    There are some DTs, CBs/S and OL that will be available in the 3rd and 4th.  Wolfe, Hicks (big no but he'll be availalbe), Randall (who I think he will draft) bit run stuffing DT/DE. Winn, Bequette

    oh yeah...

    mcdonald, reid and lester will probably be safeties 1, 2 and 3

    then you have two guys who are 6-4 who might actually have game

    smith might not crack the top 5 in that group

    Well I said how much I liked David Wilson and how I thought Upshaw was a bit over rated.

    Wilson just ended the 1st round and Upshaw is still waiting.

    I have been screaming UP UP UP for months so I have to be happy, but to be truthful I was hoping higher and someone like Kuelchy. But as one commentator said Jones missed four games and if he had played the whole year he might have been a top ten pick. So got to be happy.
    Anyone think Konz or Reyes could fall all the way to 48???
    I want to keep both picks, and maybe get a 2nd for Hoyer, and use em all for D.

    Assuming Pats stay put in 2nd... which 15 players go before Pats pick?

    Coby Fleener
    Courtney Upshaw
    Cordy Glenn
    Peter Konz

    The thing about Smith is he's a QB for the secondary. He's solid in all aspects but I don't think he's an elite S. More like a Chung type of solid starter that might get a pro-bowl once in his career.

    For FS I want a CB convert to have 3 CB's on the field at all times or wait until next year where there will be much more talented S's then Smith in the 1st and into the 2nd. Why over spend?

    Did anyone what BB said about Hightower? Said sees him playing inside on 1 and 2 downs, moving outside on 3 rd down. If that is the case, is he taking Spikes starting spot? I saw this posted on espn Boston site

    1.  So turns out NE being high on Chandler wasn't a smoke screen afterall, ha.  Curious as to how BB will use him 43 DE and/or 34 OLB?  He looks like a pure 43 kid to me based on his movement skills in space.

    2.  BOOM!  Hightower, fVcken love the pick, been on this kid for a while, perfect Patriot based on his size/versatility/pedigree, etc.

    3.  I'm sill looking at Kendall Reyes/Josh Robinson/Silatolu/Jeffery at 48 and Ronnell Lews/Ta'amu/Jenkins/Wolfe, etc. at 62.

    4.  Wow, Irvin at 15, talk about putting a premium on pass rush ability!  Kid can get after it off the edge and based on what they were reporting earlier in the day today, when they were asking personnel men what pass rusher they'd want for just one play, the majority gave Irvin's name... kid's electric off the edge but wow.

    Just been chilling, reading the posts and thinking.  Obviously bummed we lost out on Smith and worried about Jones' durability but I like Jones far more than the bum the Jets got. 

    I love the Hightower pick.  Was talking this kid up early last year before he decided to stay in school.  This is a pass first league and we will play in sub packages 60% of the time.  These two picks exemplify that fact and are geared towards getting off the field on third down.  Jones I see as a 4-2-5 DE.  I see Mayo and Hightower in at LB with 5 DBs.  A front four right now of Fanine, Wilfork, Love and Jones. 

    But, we are missing the secondary help.  Sorry to say to all the haters but the best value and chance to fix things back there is the Patrimony Stoner.  I say we gamble at 62 with him which is higher than anyone else would do.  We move DM to FS.  On third down we go with Jenkins, Dowling, DM, Chung and whoever is better between Allen, Arrington and Moore. 

    At pick 48, we can have some fun with LaMichael James or perhaps Jeffrey just to put a rookie on offense.  Guys, we are one solid DB short of a SB.  It may not be the druggie, maybe it's Josh Robinson, maybe the kid from Montana.  IDK yet, but I feel like we will make one selection there tomorrow. 

    BB is loaded for bear.  He sees the clock ticking for Brady like the rest of us.  The future is now.  Let's go change the name on BB's boat to VI Rings next year.
