In response to PatsLifer's comment:
The mallet discussion is intriguing, but I can't see the browns giving up a 6th for him. The asking price of mallet and swaps of 1st round picks makes more sense. Cleveland retains a first and gets their QB. I don't think that price is too steep considering a week QB draft and the Browns displeasure witht their current QB stable.
Lets. Assume for a second the above happens...what do you do with the 6th overall pick? I'd Star is still around, he is my selection. Imagine what that does for the pats. I'd not, I would trade 6 back to the mid early teens, pick Woerner antoughd grab another 2nd or so.
i get star or werner at 6. they both could be gone by 5. no way werner lasts till mid teens.
if they are both gone i trade back 4-5 spots take jordan or ansah and pick up a top 10 2nd rd pick
i still say its a pats fantasy. but if it happens it will be teh biggest steal of the year. bigger than the talbi deal.
imagine star next to wilfork with chandler and perhaps margus hunt rotating in with nink. especially with mayo, hightower, and spikes playing LB. Talk about a tough line to play against. Who would you double cover? with mccourty at FS and talib, dennard and maybe mathaiu at CB. our only questionable spot woud be SS.
that's funny. while at the gym working out today thats exactly the thought i had. if we had # 6 and took star (my hunch is he could be gone unless like 3 qbs go in first 5), then the next pick of de's who might still be on the board when we pick might likely be hunt. okafor long gone. chance hunt gone too. if so, carradine, taylor still there.
in a preemptive plan (we get this pick befroe free agency), we take a top safety in fa.
now if star is gone and werner there, then we could go best dt, wr, cb or other in 2,
and interior o line still in rd 3.
if neither there, we trade back 4-5 picks take jordan or ansah, get a high rd 2 pick (top 10), get an elite wr, dt, cb, safety and interior line in rd 3.
by the way, my thought is if pats want mathiew, we'd be lucky to get him in rd 2.
with demps and all the other offensive talent, we may have to cut spec teams. can hardly take other spec teams players. mathieu would have to be here because hes better than what we got.
i know his talent transcends his size, but he is small.
we dont need the speed so much any more (not in defecit), although there is redundancy to consider ie if demps were to get hurt, we wouldnt have a kcik returner.
when we add secondary,i woudl prefer tall cbs and tall and big safeties.
