    Patriots take Matt Elam. 

    Jets will take Tavon Austin. Rex Ryan has been envious of the Pats success at the slot position for far too long.  I know he is a D guy but he won't pass this up.  What better way to help the offense then by selecting Austin.  Great returner too!

    Bills take Gino Smith.

     

    Just my predictions.

    he can play DE on running downs and DT on passing downs.. similar to what we saw BB do with Jermaine Cunningham. 

     



    How did that work out?

    Svitek is nothing more than a warm body in training camp.  Odds are he doesn't make the team.  I agree Cannon seems to be liked at RT.  However, there is no back up at LT.  Svitek is not a legit backup.  So, we have no back up at LT if Vollmer leaves which is appearing more likely the longer this goes.

     

    I too would love to add a top CB in the draft.  If Trufant makes it to 29, he would certainly be a player of interest and could be our pick depending who else is there.  However, after Milliner, Rhodes and Trufant, I see a fairly big drop off in talent.  This isn't to say we couldn't target a Poyer, Slay or Alford type with our 2nd but let's say we go a completely different direction with 29.  Let's say we draft a DT for example.  Let's say Vollmer is gone.  Then when our 2nd round pick comes up and you have one of these 2nd tier corners on the board and Armstead, Long and/or Watson on the board, wouldn't you rather take a LT back up vs. a back up CB?  I would.


    I would rather move DMC back to corner back fill for him at FS then I would moving Mankins to LT if Solder gets hurt or putting a Svitek in there.  Keeping Brady upright is of utmost importance.  OL shuffle, especially at LT is more worrisome to me then DB suffle.

     



    Not sure you are giving Svitek enough credit. He was a starting T for a playoff team before he was injured

     



    The man was forced in as a starter 2 years ago replacing a struggling Sam Baker.  He started 10 games for Atlanta in 2011.  They were so impressed they let him go after he got hurt.  Before that he started just 6 games from 2005 to 2010.  He was out of football in 2008 and he missed all of 2012 due to injuries.  He's entering his 9th year (missing 2) and has just 16 career starts. That's 1.78 starts per year.

    Like I said, if Vollmer is back, this cat doesn't make the team.  If Vollmer isn't back and Svitek makes the team, are we a better team?  NO!!

    I'm getting really frustrated.  We are sitting on what, $18 to $20 million of cap space?  We're letting our guys go over pennies. There isn't a single player of ours who signed for big bucks elsewhere meaning we could have kept them.

    Right now the top available WR is Edelman and the top OT is Vollmer and yet they are still on the street.  There are a number of DTs and pass rushers out there who could help us.  There are corners out there who are better options than Marquice Cole.  Give me a break.  I don't get it.


    Our star WR corps has been completely dessimated; replaced by injury prone and unheralded players all of whom are lucky to be half as good and half as durable as the players they replaced.  To me the window is closing on Brady and we are nickel and diming ourselves out of great players, getting weaker to save cap space.  What are we going to do with this extra cap space, bank it for 2014?  I hope BB and Kraft are sitting on a master plan and spring it on us soon because this off season has been horrible so far.

    How can that be?  They had $25MM when they restructured Brady, picked up another $4MM or so when they cut Lloyd.  Talib took $5MM and the other guys barely touched the cap.  I have to go look at this as it doesn't make sense to me.

    Bills take Gino Smith.

    TFB12, what if NE takes Austin uses DA more to the outside and either double dips with another 3rd round WR or FA WR type.

    ..... I know Austin will be gone by then, they could still go with a one later maybe.  You never know.

    I would love to see Austin make it to 29 but just don't think he makes it out of 20.  He's the most dynamic offensive player in this draft.  I can see STL or CHI taking him and he doesn't have a snow ball's chance of getting past MIN.

    However, if we did get Austin, I'd probably line him up everywhere moving him and Amendola all over the place to keep the defense guessing and off balance.  If you're the nickel playing the slot you have Amendola one play then Austin the next giving you different looks all the time.  Could be a real nightmare to defend.

    STL 's at 16 would have been fine for either.  They have signed Long so OT is not a 1st round need. They need upgrades at both SS and FS.  They can get Cyprien at 22. Between the 4 safeties they have they totaled 7 tackles last year. Chicago will probably go interior OL but if the top guards are gone a WR is highly probable, so getting Austin or Patterson and 16 is not bad.

    According to my figures the Patriots' 2013 cap figure is for $107,905,225 with 64 (63 active, 0 on Injured Reserve, 1 on Reserve/Non-NFI) players. I now believe that reserve players like Brian Waters do not count against the cap. I have the Patriots' 2013 dead money at $6,644,196. $108,798,268 + $6,644,196 = $114,549,421. The cap limit for the 2013 season is $123 million. The Patriots' adjusted cap number is $129,656,344. Therefore, I have the Patriots under their adjusted cap limit by about $15.2 million. On the 19th of March Greg Bedard tweeted that the Patriots are under their adjusted cap by $15,271,750 so my numbers are off by $164,827. I am working to reconcile that difference. I think that $150,000 of the difference is that I am counting Tony Fiametta in my numbers. Am not sure that Bedard's numbers include him. My numbers do NOT include the cap effects of the Nick Koutuvides and Marquise Cole signings.

    Hey Faucet,

    As things stand today (i.e. current WR depth), WR has to be considered a very realistic possibility in Rd 1 (would be a BB first as we all know) or inside the Top 64.

     

    I'd love to see them move on Hopkins/Allen/Austin, etc. in Rd 1/early Rd 2 or Bailey/Patton/Swope/Rogers/Wheaton or even Harper, etc. at a later point on Day 2.

    Re: ***2013 Patriots Draft Thread V2***

    Here's what I found out regarding our cap situation.  This is according to Mike Reiss' on Mar 12.

    As for cap space, a league source indicates that the Patriots have $26 million available as things currently stand.

    It looks like Lloyd had a $4.9MM cap charge for 2013 with $1.9MM of it being dead.  I'm a little unclear on this so let's say cutting Lloyd cleared $3MM so we had $29MM to play with before free agency.  On a side note, the Pats won a ruling concerning Jonathan Fanenne and could get back $2.5MM in cap space because he did not disclose an injury and the Pats should get back his signing bonus. But let's table that for now.

    These are the 2013 cap charges that I found.  The top 51 contracts count and I'm assuming all of these count. 

     

    Hoomanawanui - $1.323MM

    Danny Amendola - $3.5MM

    Donald Jones - $1.19MM

    Leon Washington - $1.2MM

    Adrian Wilson - $1.33MM

    Will Svitek - $1MM (?? estimate)

    Aqib Talib - $5MM

    Kyle Arrington - $2.62MM

    Tony Fiametta - $1MM (??Reactived, don't have his number)

    Marquice Cole - $1MM (?? I don't have his number but if it's more than $1MM someone should be fired)

    I came up with $19.162MM spent leaving us $9.8MM to spend, $12.3MM if we get the Fanenne money back.

    Notes:

    Jones has no guaranteed money so if cut, his full cap charge comes off.

    Svitek has only $375K guaranteed.


    Hoomanawanui has yet to sign his RFA tender.

    We have 64 players under contract at the moment.  Only the top 51 contracts count against the cap.

    According to my figures the Patriots' 2013 cap figure is for $107,905,225 with 64 (63 active, 0 on Injured Reserve, 1 on Reserve/Non-NFI) players. I now believe that reserve players like Brian Waters do not count against the cap. I have the Patriots' 2013 dead money at $6,644,196. $108,798,268 + $6,644,196 = $114,549,421. The cap limit for the 2013 season is $123 million. The Patriots' adjusted cap number is $129,656,344. Therefore, I have the Patriots under their adjusted cap limit by about $15.2 million. On the 19th of March Greg Bedard tweeted that the Patriots are under their adjusted cap by $15,271,750 so my numbers are off by $164,827. I am working to reconcile that difference. I think that $150,000 of the difference is that I am counting Tony Fiametta in my numbers. Am not sure that Bedard's numbers include him. My numbers do NOT include the cap effects of the Nick Koutuvides and Marquise Cole signings.




    Didn't see your post as I was working on mine.  Your numbers are probably better because mine include a lot of $1MM range contacts which might be out of the top 51.  I certainly like your $15MM number a lot better.  Point is we have room to add Edelman, Vollmer, one of the veteran F/A pass rushers and sign our top 3 picks.

    Patriots take Matt Elam. 

    Jets will take Tavon Austin. Rex Ryan has been envious of the Pats success at the slot position for far too long.  I know he is a D guy but he won't pass this up.  What better way to help the offense then by selecting Austin.  Great returner too!

    Bills take Gino Smith.

     

    Just my predictions.

     




    TFB12, what if NE takes Austin uses DA more to the outside and either double dips with another 3rd round WR or FA WR type.

     

     




    I would love to see Austin make it to 29 but just don't think he makes it out of 20.  He's the most dynamic offensive player in this draft.  I can see STL or CHI taking him and he doesn't have a snow ball's chance of getting past MIN.

     

    However, if we did get Austin, I'd probably line him up everywhere moving him and Amendola all over the place to keep the defense guessing and off balance.  If you're the nickel playing the slot you have Amendola one play then Austin the next giving you different looks all the time.  Could be a real nightmare to defend.

     




    Hey Faucet,

    As things stand today (i.e. current WR depth), WR has to be considered a very realistic possibility in Rd 1 (would be a BB first as we all know) or inside the Top 64.

    It is certainly a strong possibility.  If we make some more moves in F/A such as Vollmer, Sedrick Ellis, Dummervil, add another CB.  We could draft 3 WRs and that would be okay with me.
