    GB takes Perry and MIN trades for BAL selection so that means Smith might still be in play

    If you guys think jones is a difference maker, then I will buy in. I didn't seemitmon tape, and his durability worried me. I am hoping with the kids size and athleticism, BB can mold him.

    i think mayock and bb are looking at potential

    Yes  an Alabama D guy!. Are we going back to the 3/4  Hightower ILB  Nink OLB and Spikes or Mayo one or the either outside or inside? Carter is questionable and Cunningham  not proven.

    cunningham should get cut this year

    Wonder what they are going to do with Nin. Nin looked very good this year
    Posted by PatsEng


    Nink is good so not sure it doesn't mean you don't have rotation or situation packages for each of the three. Also no telling how long it takes for the youngins to come along.

    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.

    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

    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

    I'm just hoping Jenkins goes early tomorrow so we don't have to hear about the Pats taking him for half the day lol

    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.
