    hey mb,

     i see no chance cox is available at 27.
    barron i see very little chance

    if janoris jenkins , reyes and barron are available in rd 1, i try to get all 3, maybe with a 1 from ww trade or 2 from hoyer.

    in round 2, i like curry as first priority
    then jefferey or someone of his ilk with the second pick.

    in 3 someone like ben jones or other c

    (re: cam johnson, doesnt he have sickle cell? what if we have to go to denver in the playoffs?)

    rd 4 
        wylie is my first choice or another wh could play the slot
        wolfe and mcnutt as other options.

    others my eye is on are 
       cox, mercilus, sanu broyles, blake

    undrafted free agents i like are 
        junior hemingway stud slot guy but super strong as well.
    danny coale

    dont have any backs but i'd like to pickup a potential triple threat feature back.


    thanks man

    In Response to Re: ***2012 Patriots Draft Thread*** MOCK V2 ADDED 2/18! : I was thinking the same think in regards to Brady restructuring, wonder what they're angling for. I like Doug Martin a lot, but agree, don't think they touch a RB in Rd 1 or 2.  However, Chris Polk (in Rd 3) is the kid that interests me... good size, physical north/south kid, can catch the football and has some ability in pass pro.  I do think they could use another veteran back there though.
    Posted by mbeaulieu07

    My two cents is Brady agreed to do this to extend Welker.  Welker has been Brady's security blanket for 5 years.  Brady is very fond of Welker.

    As for RB early, normally I'd agree with you and others but with all the depth they brought in at other positions, I think there is a chance they target a RB in the first two rounds.  I would not rule it out.  I agree that it isn't likely but I can't rule it out now that Benny moved on.  I like Polk too. 

    Looks like Light is probably going to retire from what I'm hearing.  That leaves us two young tackles plus Cannon, who I think may be best kicking inside.  Drafting a top OL, if available, is certainly a strong possibility.  We've seen this before.  DL or OL, get prepared for us to draft one in our first 3 picks.  I'd take that to the bank.

    re my recent mock,

      bunting has janoris jenkins lasting to 30 to sf and barron to us at 31
    given that scenario we could get jenkins and barron and move up in rd 2 to get curry or reyes or both.\
       that would be strong.
    especially if we got another pick in rd 1 or 2 from hoyer or ww.

    jenkins and barron in rd 1
    reyes, curry and jefferey (insert other big wr here) in 2nd
    ben jones or other c in 3rd
    wylie or other wwelker replacemnt in 4th.

    Larsen to me is more of a Dan Klecko type of player. Mostly a STer that can play ironman football. He's versatile depth so I see him more as a 5th RB. Hern might actually be the 4th option or that kid from Navy we drafted a while ago. I think his tour is up and he can play this year

    He's consistently listed as a Rd 4-6 in most publications that I've seen so I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt. While I really haven't seen him listed as a Top 100 player, I think Rd 3 could be his upside.

    Posted by bredbru


    I disagree and think Gilmore is a solid football player, that projects as a starter and 4 down player at the NFL level.  NE runs a predominantly zone scheme so Gilmore would also be a very good fit for them (don't think he's limited to zone only either)... I also think he could play some S as he's quick to read & close and is a solid tackler.

    hey mb,

     Happy Friday! 


     i see no chance cox is available at 27.

    barron i see very little chance

     I don’t disagree that either will not be there at 27, however I do think both are potential trade up targets, within reason (if they’re available in the 20’s etc.). 


    if janoris jenkins , reyes and barron are available in rd 1, i try to get all 3, maybe with a 1 from ww trade or 2 from hoyer.

     For me, I’d look at Barron/Reyes, then think they’re more likely to target another CB in Rd 2 (or Day 2) (Hosley/Robinson/Boykin etc.) as it’s a relatively deep class at the position. 


    in round 2, i like curry as first priority

    then jefferey or someone of his ilk with the second pick.

     Wouldn’t get any complaints from me if they go Curry with 2A.  Jeffery is someone that they’ll have to do their homework on, but this kid has shredded SEC defenses and I can only image how much better he’d perform with quality QB play.  Excellent value in Rd 2, IMO. 

    in 3 someone like ben jones or other c

     

    (re: cam johnson, doesnt he have sickle cell? what if we have to go to denver in the playoffs?)

     He has the trait for sickle cell, yes.  That’s one of the reasons why I have him in Rd 3. 


    thanks man

    Agree on Gilmore, I would like Pats to draft a CB to move to FS.  The way the NFL is now you need solid cover guys, with a CB at FS you can leave them there when a team tries to spread them out.

    Don't know if Gilmore or someone like Omar Bolden in the 3rd round.

    Re: ***2012 Patriots Draft Thread*** MOCK V2 ADDED 2/18!

    I think with the direction of the passing has taken over the past few years that there is going to be an evolution in the secondary.  The proliferation of receiving TE's like Gates, Gronk, VD, Hernandez, D. Clark, Graham, Finley, and Witten, with I'm sure more to come, has put the traditional safety at a disadvantage.  (As an aside these guys accentuate why the defenseless receiver rules suck.  The best way to stop these guys from going over the middle is to knock them out.  They don't have to worry about Ronnie Lott decapitating them over the middle anymore.  There is no fear in catching the ball in the middle of the field any more.  But enough about that, just needed to vent).  I think there will be a need for big cornerbacks who can cover yet still have the ability to tackle. Part of the problem here is that the college game isn't producing guys who can cover these hybrid TEs.  There are so few athletes like the Gronks or Grahams in college that you may only face one or two a year so you never develop a guy who can cover him.  Your CB's range from 5'8 to 6'1 while these guys are 6'4 to 6'7.  It's a big mismatch.  Another problem you run into is that the taller the defensive player, the less fluidity that they generally have in their hips which makes it hard to cut with the guy they are covering.
    With all this I think that developing a FS who can cover like a CB is becoming more important.  This is why I like the idea of developing McCourty there if that's how it plays out.  If Dowling and Arrington can play on the outside and they draft another corner, I have no problem with McCourty at safety on passing downs.  Maybe use him as an outside cover corner on the early downs and rotate him to FS for passing downs.  I don't know how this would work in practice but I like it in theory.

    Re: ***2012 Patriots Draft Thread*** MOCK V2 ADDED 2/18!

    So reports are slowly coming out that there might be 4-5 WR's taken in the top 20-25 picks and 3 QB's in the top 15.

    The WR's:

    Blackmon
    Floyd
    Wright
    Randle (after a very impressive pro day)
    Hill (comparisons to Thomas but further along and more upside)

    The QB's:

    Luck
    RGIII
    Tannehill

    Now that's 7-8 O players not including the 4-5 OL expected to go in the top 25. It's looking more and more likely that on of the top 5 DL will be available at #27 This can only be a good thing for the Pats imo

    If 5 WR's go, I'd agree that those are the most likely candidates... though the PFT mock had NE taking Brockers and Brian Quick at 27/31, haha.  Nothing against Brian Quick and I think he has solid potential, but if BB goes WR in Rd 1, I'd have a hard time believing it'd be from a 1AA school.

    I also agree that it can only mean good things for NE as I highly doubt they'd target a WR in Rd 1.

    chris price adn buckley both dotn believe brady restructure is not about welker but about extending gronk and hern. i think thisis their hunch or they have inside info and dont want to say. this would be a dream fro me however. i said this all last year.

    thanks for the post.

    we differ around jenkins.

    here's my thinking. how many years do you think it will be before we agin get a chance to draft a potential shut down corner from where the pats will be picking in the next several years?

    only way is a serious injury or a serious character question.

    here is jenkins.

    io think he should be priority ohne becasue of the opportunity

    my 2nd highest priority
    one of reyes, still, brockers

    next highest curry

    then big outside wr

    if we can add barron into all that, id love to upgrade safety,

    gotta have center/interior line

    ww replacement


    thats my priority order, not draft order necessarily,

    mb's assesment of him, I don't think he'll be available that late.  maybe not even out of the 1st round.

    Might be a waste of a CB but I would love to see Gilmore at FS, I think he would turn into a heck of a ball hawk back there.

    and if he were to be a demon ball hawk that is what we need over a strong safety (not that that could not be improved as well). matter of priorities with so many needs.

    also want jenkins shutdown corner and to take advantage of the plethora of receivers available this year (a big outside guy and a slot guy)

    I also think that TE Coby Fleener will sneak in ahead of us in Rd 1.

    So that's potentially 8 players that we wouldn't need in the first place.  A few big names are going to fall through the cracks.  

    Here are the names without a question are out of reach of #27-

    In no particular order.
    1. Luck
    2. Griffin
    3. Tannehill
    4. Floyd
    5. Blackmon 
    6. Coples
    7. Wright
    8. Fleener
    9. Richardson
    10. Kalil
    11. Reiff
    12. DeCastro
    13. Ingram
    14. Poe 
    15. Cox
    16. Upshaw
    17. Kuechly
    18. Claiborne

    That leaves alot of other great players to chose from to include-
    1. Brockers
    2. Barron
    3. Glenn
    4. Adams
    5. Still
    6. Kirkpatrick
    7. Martin
    8. Mercilus
    9. Perry
    10. Randle
    11. Konz
    12. Jenkins
    13. Hightower
    14. Branch
    15. Worthy

    In Response to Re: ***2012 Patriots Draft Thread*** MOCK V2 ADDED 2/18! : thanks for the post. we differ around jenkins. here's my thinking. how many years do you think it will be before we agin get a chance to draft a potential shut down corner from where the pats will be picking in the next several years? only way is a serious injury or a serious character question. here is jenkins. io think he should be priority ohne becasue of the opportunity my 2nd highest priority one of reyes, still, brockers next highest curry then big outside wr if we can add barron into all that, id love to upgrade safety, gotta have center/interior line ww replacement thats my priority order, not draft order necessarily,

    I don't think we differ on Jenkins, so much as we disagree on the idea that BB would come out of this draft with (3) 1st rounders.
