    In Response to Re: ***2012 Patriots Draft Thread*** MOCK V1 ADDED : Hey Pats, Mercilus is an interesting case indeed. Since Upshaw will most likely be gone by the time we pick Mercilus might be there. I've seen him range from 15-early 2nd round for the very reasons you stated. A 1 year product with high upside. Truthfully if I had to put money down on the top 3 OLB/DE's that the Pats have a shot at late in the 1st I would have to say Ingram, Curry, and Mercilus are the best of the bunch. Curry might be the best overall rusher of the group but lacks coverage skill and has trouble setting the edge limiting his ability as a 34 OLB. Ingram might have the best overall package of the 3 but is also heavier and slower which might make him more valuable as a DE then OLB. Mercilus has the best size, speed, rushing ability, and coverage ability to flex between 34 OLB and 43 DE. The only wild card I can see sneaking into the conversation is Jenkins. Like Mercilus has the size, speed, rushing ability, and coverage ability to play both 34 OLB and 43 DE. His tack record is better then Mercilus however, his seasons haven't been as productive as Mercilus. I'd break it down as: If I wanted the best overall 43 DE who can play 34 OLB I'd go Ingram If I wanted the best pass rusher I'd go Curry If I wanted the most consistent player who could switch from 34 OLB to 43 DE I'd go with Jenkins If I wanted the highest upside player who can play 34 OLB and 43 DE I'd go Mercilus For me I have a gut feeling Taylor is going to declare so I'd want him as a pure OLB which makes me want to can a DE primarily who can drop back so I'd go with Ingram

    Agree, very good assessment PE.  Here's where I can't get away from him, a few names I was really high on and all had some questions but they went to other teams don't know if I can take another one getting away, won't even mention Clay Matthews

    Spencer
    Connor Barwin
    Dunlap
    Kerrigan (picked 16, NE picked Solder 17) although they got a future LT they could had moved up 1 to pickup Kerrigan
    Jabaal Sheard
    Justin Houston
    Brooks Read (this one hurt as much as Barwin)

    Don't want another stud to get added to this list, I think I roll the dice.

    Yeah I know MB was high on a lot of those guys as was I.

    I actually had the Pats taking Matthews, Barwin, Kerrigan, Sheard, and Reed as some points in my mocks.

    Reed, Kerrigan, and Watt were my binkies going into the draft last year and I'm glad to see I was justified. Houston I wasn't high on but that's because I thought he was high to often and lazy. Guess I was wrong about that.

    Actually I think I liked Dunlap better the Cunningham too but talked myself into Cunningham over Dunlap because Dunlap was a pure rusher while Cunningham looked like a 3 down player

    Indeed, was really high on Kerrigan, Reed and Sheard (wasn't on this board the year that Barwin came out, but I can assure you that he's a player I wanted in the top 2 rounds).

    I wasn't high on Houston or Dunlap, partly due to character, but also partly due to assumed fits as 34 OLB's.  Houston has done well in his rookie season playing off the edge in KC, but Dunlap was/is a 43 DE, which would make him a better fit now, but he's refressed a bit in year two.

    The guy I was screaming for a couple of years ago was Sean Lee from Penn State. He has had a monster year with the Cowboys. BB can be such an arrogant guy at times. Everyone was screaming for one of three defenders last draft - Watt, Kerrigan or Aldon Smith. All three have played well. We NEEDED to trade up and get one of those guys. What the hell did Dowling, Vereen or Mallet do for us this year? We couldn't have packaged picks and got the defender we needed?
    PatsEng...you are obviously one of the most knowledgable guys on this thread but as a diehard Longhorn fan I have to say you are way off on Blake Gideon. He misses a ton of tackles and was close to being benched this year. I'd take a late round flyer on another Horn safety, Christian Scott, who has been hurt  allot in his career but has much more physical talent than Gideon.

    That's why he'd be a day 3 guy pump. Sometimes I forget that not everyone gets into the draft as Brd, MB, or any of the other guys do and use general terms like day 3 guys as a way to set the bar. Usually day 3 guys are considered projects. They have potential but there is a reason why they are considered day 3 guys to begin with. Me saying that he's a day 3 guy was meant to imply that he has a number of weakness but when I talk about his abilities and potential I do so in comparisons of other day 3 guys and some late day 2 guys. Trust me Gideon is no where near a Lester, Barron, or Martin but if you can grab him in the 5th or 6th he's an interesting project with a Sanders (James) type of ceiling.

    Sorry about the confusion. I'll try to not assume so much in the future and also discuss his faults instead of tossing out generic terming bars like day 3 prospect

    In Response to Re: ***2012 Patriots Draft Thread*** MOCK V1 ADDED : I agree to a certain extend, D needs a ton of work both with FA (including Pats, Anderson, Carter ect) and draft picks but the O needs help and if they don't have Wes Welker a guy who has more catches over the last 4 years than anyone else in the league you need to address it.  On O, sign Wes, get a third TE and get WR who can go deep.  The OL IMO is set for now although there are some stud OC coming out who would be nice to have specially with someof the problems the OL has which is pressure up the middle.
    Posted by Pats7393


    id only sign wes for a downhome bargain, otherwise tag for a year and wish him well. age, hits, etc. get a new outside guy and slot guy in fa and draft. (if wes were megatron its another matter).

    aldon (d rookie of rhe year) kerrigan watt have produced. aldon was one of my top 2 favs if we could land them, kerriggan and watt who i settled on that we should nab just prior to the draft (due to likely reachability).

    good post. thanks for the longhorn dope.

    hoping for multiples at the top of our selections.

    Kerrigan absolutely hurts less because of what Solder has done and all the playing time he's gotten but still hurts to see a LB/DE of that caliber gone.

    Also with their 2nd 1st rnd pick (gone to NO) and a second they could had gone up and gotten both Kerrigan and Solder.  But on the other hand, I think BB did the right thing and finds himself (again) with 3 picks in the top 60.  wow am I all over the map with this one lol

    Have to be honest, the hardest two picks to mock here were the 1st 2.  With this in mind I would not be surprised if one of them is traded. 

      1/4/2012 
    PickPositPlayerSize/Weight
    28OLBZach Brown6'2" 230 lbs
    32DTBrandon Thompson6'2" 310 lbs
    48OCBen Jones6'3" 316 lbs
    64DEAlex Okafor6'4" 260 lbs
    95SHarrison Smith6'2" 215 lbs
    127WRJarius Wright5'10" 180 lbs

    Zach Brown provides BB with a true 43 OLB who can drop in coverage or blitz, very speedy but insanely strong for his size.  Doesn't need to come out on 1st or 2nd down.

    I have no idea why I feel Okafor has a very good chance to end up with the Patriots.  Just got that feeling about value/pick ect (nothing to do with the other Okafor).  he's got the speed size and power BB looks for in that type player.  If Carter and Anderson are back it gives Okafor a full year to become a starter.  As a rookie he can add another fresh leg pass rusher.

    Brandon Thompson is a kid I think will be talked about more as the draft gets closer.  I didn't see in a few games any real concerns plus I saw him a ton playing in the backfield.

    Ben Jones, this kid is a power house can play OG as well as able to start at C next season.

    Sure seems that UNC has a bunch of day 1/2 kids every year, I must admit that I'm not a fan of their kids though, same with USC, not sure why... the always seem to be over-hyped I guess, ha.  Hightower is my #1 LB target in Rd 1, kid could impact from multiple positions within multiple schemes.

    As for Brown, I'm not sure BB would wanna lock himself into a smaller (good height, but 230 is small for a BB ILB, curious to his actual weight) 4/3 type OLB high in the draft unless he's set on moving to more base 43.  I still think he'd prefer kids that could play in both schemes.

    I think Thompson will be in the discussion for sure based on his size and position.

    Jones is a kid that I'm very high on and think he could be the target for them on Day 2.  Love the size, toughness and experience etc.

    Okafor I'm not very familiar with.

    Smith is a kid that I see on a weekly basis and am very high on.  Very good instincts and awareness and is always around the football.  He has very good size and is excellent in run support.  He's still pretty new to the S position as he played some LB at ND, but the kid has some upside.

    I love Jarius Wright and while his size is far from ideal, the kid has electric speed, excellent quicks and fluidity, brings a ton of big play/RAC ability and is a proven player in the SEC. 

    Both Jones and Wright are kids that I'll prob have in my V2 mock.

    I still think Kuechly is the best of the LB's coming out. My favorite WR in this draft is Y.A. Hilton,DE/OLB Mel Ingram,DB Logan Ryan....beyond these guys I don't have a clue..

    Prob is, Kuechly will be off the board in the top 10-15, which will be too rich for BB's blood, awesome football player though.

    Ingram is another kid that will likely be off the board in the top 15 as he's one of the most versatile kids in this class and can really get after the QB comes at a premium.

    Hilton is a kid that should interest them with his excellent speed/quicks and RAC ability.

    Ryan is a kid that I had to google as I hadn't heard of him, good sized kid, looks like a RS Soph.  Tell me more about him?

    hes been one of my favs from the start (and my feeling has been that he's the most likely we could land) wouldnt mind having upshaw and hightower (not that it's likely).

    Texas DE Alex Okafor hasn't declared yet and should definately come back for his senior year as he has had only one productive season. They had him at DT last year due to being thin there.  I am against drafting guys in the first or second round based on one year of productivity. Though the Giants DE Jean Pierre whatever sure proves me wrong there. Still, Okafor would be a risk.

    Antonio Allen, the 6-2 205 S from South Carolina should be added to the discussion as well.  Good size, active kid, always around the football, solid tackler, spends a lot of time down in the box, but projects as a solid zone safety as well.  He also made a fair amout of plays this season, 3 INT's (1 TD), 2 PBU, 4 FF to go along with 81 tackles.  Prob a day 3 kid at this point.

    ...3B - Devin Taylor OLB - This kid is 6'7" and is good-great in coverage. He should honestly stay in school but rumors are he's declaring. This kid has a ton of talent and great size. It would be well worth taking him in the 3rd and letting him work. Esp, if you get his teammate Ingram in the ...

    not buying taylor at 3b, at least not this year...

    basing it on what he showed against neb. he looked afraid to slug it out in traffic. and when it looked like he was easy to bring down. definitely a liability against the run. he'd have to bulk up a bit... a project. i don't think the pats should go there for 3b.

    i would rather risk that 3b on broyles if he's available.

    mb,
      with hightower, am thinking if he falls to 26 or maybe even 25, it  might be smart to trade up ahead of baltimore and pitt both of whom know what to do with good lb's, and ditto houston with good defensive players. unless we knew what houston was doing, id seriously consider trading up (including a pick from next yr) to 25 or so if he falls. of course he would have to be bb's highest player on his board. after getting fa db(s) in fa, lb and de/dt to me are my highest needs. your thoughts and anyone else chime in.
