A few thoughts on their Day 2 picks:
1. Curious as to how they'll use Jamie Collins... looks like a move type player that they could used all over the field... particulary on 3rd down... believe PE was high on this kid, credit to him.
2. Aaron Dobson... I had other WR's rated higher, but tough to knock the pick... good size, good hands, tough kid at a need position. He was a popular name on the draft thread.
3. I've been high on Logan Ryan for quite a while (mocked him to NE in Rd 3) as he possesses a good combo of what BB values in his CB's... moves well, tough, smart, physical, tackles well, effective blitzer and got his and on a ton of footballs the past couple seasons (17 PBU, 4 INT's in 2012 and 13/4 in 2011).
4. Duron Harmon... Like most, I don't have much on this kid (He did lead Rutgers in INT's 2011 with 5), look forward to researching him... but yeah, can't say I'm happy with the pick considering the other players left on the board... we'll see if he's the physical S presence that they could use longterm.
I really like the Dobson and Ryan picks. Collins is versatile but unpolished and I think they want to develop him with spikes and nink heading into their contract years. I think we will see him on 3rd down as he has decent pass coverage skills...also expect to see him a ton on ST.
the one pick i am a loss for words on his Huron. W T F ? We will be looking back on this pick with regret as the Rams drafted our kid Bailey just 1 pick later. Should have grabbed Bailey and this draft would have been much better.
Who is left on the board of note for our pick in round 4?
Actually, on balance I would have preferred the player immediately taken after our pick. I think it would have been a better draft.
NE PICK 52 LB Jamie Collins
CIN PICK 53 DE Margus Hunt
NE PICK 59 WR Aaron Dobson
ATL PICK 60 CB Robert Alford
NE PICK 83 CB Logan Ryan
CIN PICK 84 SS Shawn Williams
NE PICK 91 SS Duron Harmon
STL PICK 92 WR Steadman Bailey
I have hopes for Collins and Dobson but not much for the other two, especially Harmon who was an undrafteable player. Just like we reached 4-5 rounds for Tavon Wilson last year, we wasted another high pick on another nobody safety that nobody else wanted. Why have a scouting dept? BB can just call up Schiano the day of the draft and ask him which Rutgers player he should take. Duron Harmon at pick 91? What a waste!!
