    thanks for bringing me a dt and rb
    is the back a potential 3 down back?
    a versatile o lineman would be good too.

    In Response to Re: ***2012 Patriots Draft Thread***! UPDATED W/ MOCK V3 4/12! : I hear ya and I agree in terms of 48 being wasted.  They could of had Konz, James or Randle.  What I'm trying to say is, BB was given a Mulligan and hit the crap out of it 310 yards down the middle of the fairway with Dennard.  I see Dennard a as FS conversion who hits and tackles and would have been worth pick 48 if he didn't have the off-the-field stuff. Jeremy Ebert can play too.  He was very productive at Northwestern.  The kid had 71/1025/11 last year and 62/953/8 in 2010.  He's fast for a white kid, 4.41, I think.  Could be the next Welker.

         Oh well...what's done is done. I'm expecting the Pats to sign an undrafted FA RB, and to sign a veteran (Hightower) through free agency.

    With the Mulligan, I give the Pats an A.  It would be an A+ if we didn't shank pick 48 into the ravine.  In terms of the roster and bolstering areas of weakness, we did a great job. 

    Jones replaces Carter (but he could be back)
    Hightower replaces Guyton
    Dennard replaces Ihedigbo
    Bequette replaces Anderson

    All should be long term upgrades.

    I understand where you're coming from and long term is right, but rookies don't replace veteran production, unless the veteran in question was lousy. So I think it would be a major stretch to expect Jones/Bequette to replace Carter/Anderson. The other guys I can see it happening, but even with those guys there will be a learning curve. If there are four rookies starting on defense, I would expect some rough times.

    I didn't say starters, I said replacing on the roster.  Guyton and Anderson were not regular starters and Ihedigbo shouldn't have been a starter if we didn't have so many injuries.  Hightower will push Spikes/Ninko for PT especially in passing downs.  I actually think Bequette is NFL ready as a situational pass rusher and Jones also you would expect to see a lot of action on passing downs. 

    Carter could very well be back but I don't know if we have room for him now.

    Dennard could see a lot of action in nickel and dime sets.  I would rather see him step in at FS and release Allen to make space.  Some of these guys, the 6-7 rounders and UDFA are PS material.

    God I love Dont'a Hightower!!  Just read his post draft interview on Patriots.com.  This kid is going to be special.  Maybe even Junior Seau special but more versatile.  Mb, what was it [5]?  Can't believe we got him.  I thought he Steelers would take him but they couldn't pass on their stud OG.

    Here are a couple of quotes:

    I think I'm tough, physical, hard-nosed. I'm a big hitter. I'm going t o get to the ball. When I get to the ball, I'm going to make sure whoever has the ball or whoever is around the ball, they're going to feel me. I'm definitely going to be an intimidator, definitely want to be somebody who, not even the running back or quarterback, but even the offensive linemen want to know where I'm at on the field at all times. I'm definitely going to get to the ball.

    I dropped all the time. A lot of the teams didn't want to run the ball on us. A lot of people don't understand the coverage or the zone match to it. A lot of people think I don't drop in coverage, but it's just more complicated than it really is. Nine times out of 10, teams don't really want to run the ball on us, so we'd have to go into a sub or down package.

    You condition yourself in practice and that's where it starts. You practice how you play. A lot of people say that and don't mean it, but if you don't work hard at practice then you're not going to do what you do in practice in a game. You can't just turn a switch on in a game. It's all about how you practice and I definitely take pride in being on the field and all that, especially if it's four downs for special teams. I'm competitive and I'm passionate about football. This is what I like to do. This is what I love to do. I'm going to do whatever I can to be on the field, whether it's special teams for the first couple of games or if I'm on the field for three downs and on punt return or something. I'm going to do what I can to get on the field.
