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

    I wouldn't be surprised to see the Pats trade up a few spots in the first round of this draft.  The Broncos (who pick at 25) biggest needs are probably the offensive and defensive lines and maybe ILB.  It seems like picking an offensive lineman in that spot would be a serious reach unless there is a surprising faller on draft day.  This means that they may be taking a defensive lineman (Brockers, Still) who may still be on the board.  That may mean trading the 27th and a third to the Steelers for their 1st and a fourth, although they may not want to move behind Denver if they really covet D. Hightower.  The same trade value would probably work to get the 23rd pick from the Lions who don't look like they need DL help.  They are probably looking for a CB, S WR, OL, or RB.  They may be reluctant to trade if a reciever or corner they have their eye on fall to this spot.  To trade up to Cleveland you'd probably be looking at giving up the 3rd pick with no pick coming back (maybe a 6th or 7th).  Cleveland seems willing to trade down for quantity so they would be a willing partner.  The only reason I could see the Pats moving this far is if in their conversations with the previous teams they seem unwilling to move their picks.  Detroit and Pittsburg probably don't have the same needs the Pats do so the Pats don't have to worry about getting in front of them (unless they're really trying for Barron who Detroit may want).
    That's really about the range I see them moving up to if a DL they really like slides.  If they make a move like this (and even if they don't) they will most likely try to trade that 31 pick for a future 1st and a second or third this year.  For the second rounders, the Pats have been known to move up or down in this round based on who's available.  They may have an eye on McClellin if he makes it through the first round or even double dip with Reyes if he's still on the board.  To move up to get either one of these guys at the top they would probably need to trade 48 and the third rounder that we recieved from the trade of 31. (We'd probably get a 4th back in that trade because I'm assuming an earlier 3rd round pick).  At 62 we could go in a number or directions such as G with Silatolu, DE with Derek Wolfe, or OLB with Chandler Jones.  Then with two picks in round 4, since I have us trading out of round three I would go with Greg Childs and Brandon Taylor.
    That was a long post to get us:
    Michael Brockers
    Shea McClellin/Kendall Reyes
    Amini Silatolu/ Derek Wolfe/Chandler Jones
    Greg Childs
    Brandon Taylor

    I would have no trouble doubling up on DE's such as Brockers and Reyes or Wolfe.  I don't think that roster size would enable us to do the same at OLB with McClellin and Jones.

    I've actually heard that the Bronco's might be targeting a DB if Kirkpatrick or Gilmore slips down a little. I never thought about it honestly, because they have 2 pro-bowl corners, but how much longer will either last in the league? Both are getting up in age and will need to be replaced sooner rather then later. Given the depth of the DL where players at #25 might not make a huge difference then one you can get at #57 they might actually go after one of the top 3-4 CB's if one should fall into their laps

    PE,
    I think your cash advance has officially reached Kiper's checking account ;)

    Here's pick 31 in his latest mock... he also had McClellin at #27.

    Derek Wolfe, DL, Cincinnati

    Will fit best as a 3-4 DE, where he can use his size (6-5, 295) to become a disruptive pass-rusher. Not considered explosive in terms of foot speed, he plays with great leverage and can disrupt pockets by driving linemen back, demanding extra help. Another good fit for the Patriots as they add pieces up front.

    I would play Mock draft but until I know what BB is going to do in the way of trades on draft day it's a fruitless exercise. BB takes all the fun out playing Draft Guru! You can almost bet the house he isn't drafting at one of the two first round positions and quite possibly he trades both picks! He has practically hired every FA WR he could find so that would eliminate WR needs,He's signed three decent D-linemen types,A safety,and two CB's and one LB as well as one O-lineman oh and lest I should forget the TE! Cripesakes he just covered all of his teams needs in FA!!13 total FA's not counting the Patriots own FA's. So folks as much as I'd like to say I know what direction BB's going to take, I know I won't be right. Let just say his first pick will be a defender,please don't ask in what round....
    Posted by sportsbozo1

    That's the brilliance of BB, now he can go after the BPA. Or as you indirectly suggest he can trade entirely into 2013! All kidding aside, would you as GM trade a 1st next year and a 2nd this year for a 2012 1st? I'm always amazed how BB finds a sucker gm willing to make such a deal. I've got to think that at some point all the gms must see how bad a deal these kinds of trade are for them. I guess the question for this year is since, after the first 15 or so picks, with the value between say 20 and 60 being somewhat equal, will that encouarge more trading or less?

    Whoa, a trade with Pitt would be surreal for obvious reasons. But you're spot on with the trade with Cleveland requiring the 3rd rounder. However, I think BB will most likely trade with an NFC team. Yes, I know he's made trades with AFC teams but I view those as special circumstances. I see Detroit as the most likely partner. It's a 4 place move which BB is comfortable with. It would cost the 3rd rounder but would net a late round pick which could be used to maneuver the 2nd round. The Bears are also a possibility which would cost the late 2nd rounder with a 4th and 7th in return. Otherwise, it'll be trade down city. This, of course is based upon the current trade value chart. Which begs another question. Will it still be adhered to or will another take it's place?

    BB,
    Get me Miles Burris.

    Wow... just fvkcen wow... I'm at a loss for words.

    I'll put it like this... I know it's a highlight video which is intended to show a player the most positive light but, Miles Burris has the best motor of any player that I've seen on tape.  I mean, if you wanna see just one example, check out the play at the 1:51 mark of the link below... chasing that back down 60 yds down the field... just insane.

    This kid is the epitome of what I look for in a "football player".  His combo of instincts, closing speed, physicality, versatility and motor/want/desire are just off the charts, IMO.

    he's only 6'-2" and a 4.68 40 time 32" arms doesn't sound much like a BB OLB.

    Upside:

    • Productive
    • Aggressive attacking, setting the edge
    • Flies to the ball
    • Sacrifices his body
    • Plays physical
    • Excellent weight-room strength
    • Very coachable

    Downside:

    • Tightly wound
    • Plays too recklessly
    • Misses some tackles in space
    • Try-hard athlete — forced movement skill
    • Stays locked up
    • Marginal in coverage — no ball production

    The Way We See It:

    Very strong, short-armed, high-motor achiever with the energy desired off the edges in an aggressive 3-4 front. Relentless effort is his best trait and could allow him to overcome his athletic limitations in the pros.

    He's not a base 34 OLB, but projects well as a speed rusher/blitzer off the edge and could be used as an OLB in 43 sets or kicked inside in a when they go 34.  I also think he has the instincts and closing ability to play the ever elusive S/LB hybrid role.  Just a very, very versatile football player, IMO.  I have him in Rd 4.

    round four is way too high for a guy who doesn't really fit our system.  in round four you could get a guy like jake Bequette who could be a stud pass rusher like anderson.

    Guys,

    The guy is already a beast, a real mountain of a man at 6-5, 322 and keep in mind.  He's a RS Sophomore who can already stop the run at the NFL level.  I don't see Brockers getting past the Eagles at 15. Assuming he does, there are a lot of teams between 15 and us who would take him like the Jets, Titans, Steelers, and Broncos to name a few.

    I was a little surprised that we had him in for a visit considering he isn't expected to make it to 27.  Maybe BB was just doing his due diligence in case he somehow slips to within range, IDK.  But just maybe, he will package picks to move up to get him.  The Eagles, like us, are notorious for draft day trades and adding picks.  Would we give up both 1sts to go to 15 and get Brockers?

    I think I would do it.  In looking at our roster, we have a hole at 5 technique and at FS.  We have several warm bodies who can play weakside OLB.  Other needs at RB, WR and CB pale in comparison for a chance to finally replace Big Sey.

    Faucetman, As stated earlier I think Brockers (10-20 range) would cost at least a 1st and a 3rd and more likely a 1st and 2nd. Brockers can play the 3 technique and the five. He even had some time at the nose, but that's Wilfork's spot in the 3-4. You get the idea though; that Brockers has scheme versatility, something that BB always looks for. Technically in a 4-3 alignment you could have Wilfork and Brockers at DE. Still like McClellin at OLB in 3-4. Maybe see if he can play the Sam.

    No doubt Brockers would be a great addition.  I think to get in the 15 range would be richer than a 1st and 2nd.  Although I would love to get Brockers I don't know that I would pay that price.  I would go 31 and 48 for him though but not sure we can get there.

    15 is worth 1050 points on the current trade chart. 27 and 48 would equal 1100 points, 31 and 48 would equal 1020 points.

    Re: ***2012 Patriots Draft Thread***

    The draft for BB is all about value.  If BB sees depth at a position, he sees value in later rounds.  I think this is how he will view the WR, RB and maybe even the DT positions.  The draft is also pretty deep in 34 DE/OLB conversion types.  The one place where the draft is super thin is at S.  This is why I think Harrison Smith will be our pick at #27.

    This is sure to be met with disbelief by many on here and a reach.  But considering there isn't another S with a 2nd or possibly even a 3rd round grade and the real potential for BAL to take him at 29, Smith at 27 isn't a reach.  S is our biggest need and I'm not concerned about liabilities in coverage because I think where we were exposed a lot last year were by opposing TEs.  Smith can match up with those TEs.  Smith is also very strong in run support.  He plays with intensity, sometimes drawing flags for being too aggressive, but we've been missing that "attitude" on D since Tedy and Rodney retired. 

    Smith is such in love with the game that he skipped spring break to stay back and watch film.  He's a leader, plays with passion, is big, athletic, fluid and above all, he makes plays and seems durable.  For me, he's a must.  We can get a pass rusher at 31.

    The more I think about the DT/34DE, I think Reyes at 31 or if we want "value" why not Kheeston Randall at perhaps 96.  Is there really that much separation in the two?  Physically they are nearly identical.  Randall is a heck of a character person.  He eats blocks and double teams creating lanes for others.  He doesn't shed all that well nor does he pressure the QB very much but as a 34 DE, that's a secondary thing.

    They say you can throw the chart out now with the rookie pay scale but assuming it is somewhat relevant, 31 and 48 to get Brockers is a deal I'd do.  Per my last post, I'd get Harrison Smith at 27 after moving up to 15 for Brockers.  Those two guys would make the draft on defense.

    just throwing this out there for those interested in some sleeper NT prospects who will probably go udfa.

    damon harrison (346 lbs) - he does not move like poe at all, but seems to have the desire to play and beat up guys.

    asa chapman (380 lbs, 6'5") - could not find a video on youtube but his images show he's not fat. off field issues with drug possession, so not likely to be a pat. i am just writing here because i am in awe of his weight.

    Re: ***2012 Patriots Draft Thread***

    My thought is that 15 is going to be too big of a leap for the Pats to make.  If someone like Brockers were to fall into the early 20's the Pats may pounce.  I remember early in the process Brockers was being talked about as a late first and then his stock started to soar as people thought he would take the combine by storm.  He didn't.  The teams you mention might like him, but they may also address other needs; the Jets took Wilkinson last year and have serious holes on the offensive line, the Titans could use talent all over the field, and the Steelers drafted Heyward last season and could be looking for some help at CB or LB.  I wasn't suggesting a get Brockers at all costs attitude, just thinking they may trade up a few spots if he slips too far, specifically jumping ahead of the Broncos.

    Re: ***2012 Patriots Draft Thread***

    Interesting report and something I general agree with:

    "ESPN's Mike Reiss expects the Patriots to prioritize kick returner in this month's draft.
    Reiss lists Florida RB Chris Rainey, Arkansas WR Joe Adams, Fresno State WR Devon Wylie, and Syracuse WR Dorian Graham as potential fits. New England managed only 21.4 yards per return in 2011, which ranked them 29th in the league. Danny Woodhead (20 returns) and Julian Edelman (12) are the incumbents."

    imo Rainey should be the player. He's short (low center of gravity and can get lost behind a pile of bodies), big stout legs (lets him take a hit and keep going), and has a very quick burst and speed (sub 4.4 40 speed). He'd make an ideal return man specialist that has good hands and might be able to convert to a WR too
