    In response to seattlepat70's comment:

    May be a stupid question:

    How much do you think draft decisions are affected by a team's view of what will be available on the following year's draft?

    I just did a scan of potential 2014 draft prospects and I noticed a few things...

    1) Probably a great much better draft for teams interested in picking up a QB. There may actually be kids worthy of first round rating. Of course things could change over the year.

    2) In general, kids in next year's draft are smaller @ DT, DE, CB and WR. Take out Nix and that 370 lb kid in Tennessee (?), and there ma not be another DT weighing more than 310. There may only be a couple of CBs taller than 6-0. The top WRs are also not as tall. 

     

     



    im sure good gms taek this into account.

    maybe bb should trade half his top 14 picks into 13.

    and add dt, cb and safety of the future to our de and big outside wr of the future in this draft.

    good safeties with size in rd 3.

    Darius Slay has received and invite and will attend the draft... while anything can happend, this likely takes him out of range for NE in Rd 2, unless they're looking to move up:

    I saw that too.  Pretty shocking how much Slay's stock has risen, while his teammate Banks has seen his stock take quite a hit.  The draft process is a funny thing...

    Good point... looks like they'd have a better shot at landing Banks at the end of Rd 2 at this point, ha.

    ......and you know there is no guarantee he will go in the first round.  He could be sitting there with cameras on him waiting.

    I think most personnel types will have their finger on the pulse of the talent pipeline... they have plenty of access to game film so can get a better early read on players though as we've seen, things can change drastically from one year to the next (i.e. kids like Barkley and Amerson). Unlike the NBA and NHL, it's prob much tougher to accurately predict which kids will be available/declare early.

    I have no clue but thats a great question. I would love to know. I doubt Jerry Jones and Jeff Ireland do for example and any other coach or GM on the hot seat in a win now situation

    I'd take Honey Badger in the 7th in a heartbeat. Even if he goes back to being a pothead in a year, you still get good talent at a position of need for a year

    yep, the question is if he was invited to be a day 2 room kid. The last couple of years they've invited fringe 1st rounders so that they'd have people in the room for the next day

    In response to Army2LT's comment:

     

    Exactly, I think BB likes to target players with issues in latter rounds that could be great, but have fallen off many team boards.

    Brady couldn't hold on to the starting job.

    Cassell didn't start in college period.

    Mallett liked to smoke weed.

    Dennard punched a cop.

    Gronk had back issues.

    Those are off the top of my head, but I think anyone with an injury, off the field issue, or just could not find the field for one reason or the other are prime candidates.

     

    Mathieu is a defenite possibility.  Same goes for Hayden?  Tank F'ing Carradine, talk about a prime candidate.  He's our 1st round pick this year.

     



    The only thing I'd be cautious of with Tank is he would be a 1st round pick and the main reason takes those players is because the value of those players is much higher then the spots they were taken at. Tank was always considered a mid to late 1st round pick with teens upside so getting him at #29 wouldn't present lots of value. Now if something similar to Gronk happened where the Pats traded back and Tank ended up being in the mid 2nd round then I can see them taking him. But going through the list:

     

    Gronk - mid 1st round talent taken mid 2nd

    Hern - 2nd round talent taken in 4th

    Dennard - 2nd round talent taken in 7th

    Mallett - top 15 talent taken in 3rd

    The moral of the story is value, now look at player they brought in:

    Tank - mid 1st round talent projected in late 1st (not as much value)

    Mathieu - fringe 1st-mid 2nd round talent projected in 3rd-6th round (great value)

    M Wilson - mid 2nd round talent projected 3rd-7th round (great value)

    Tuel - prior to injury and platoon early day 2 talent projected 6th-UDFA (great value)

    Actually Tuel reminds me of Brady in a way, in that his stock was hurt because he platooned at QB 

    Lattimore - Top 3 RB talent projected 5th-UDFA (great value)

     



    slight correction, tank was projected top 10 talent till he hurt his knee (that is why he dropped). 

     

    top 10 talent at 29 i would call value

     



    NFL.com has him at a 85.4 rating which barely sneaks him into a starter catagory. Typically these are player found in the 20's. I don't think I've ever seen him with a top 10 grade even through the year. He's a good player but I think he's a bit overrated around here. For example would you call him better then say Chandler Jones?

    thnks for nfl.com reference. i see him all over called top 10 pick before the knee, all the repiutable sites. (if you aksed a month ago i could have acculmualted them for you.

    i even see him creeping up again now on several of them one to pick 14.

    hey my preference is ansah. right now id like carradien or d jones in our range. will settle for hunt or okafor if have to and a bigtime nfl receiver.

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

    I went through the Pre-Draft Contact List for the Patriots and here are my observations-

     

    PW – Private Workout
    OV – Official Visit
    CI – Combine Interview
    U – Unconfirmed Contact (Interview, Workout, Etc…)

    Quarterbacks
    7th-Jeff Tuel, QB, Washington State (PW)
    UFA-Dayne Crist, QB, Kansas (PW)

    Trend-QB not really needed (unless Mallett is traded)

    Running Backs

    UFA-Miguel Maysonet, RB, Stony Brook (PW)
    UFA-Knile Davis, RB, Arkansas (PW)

    UFA-Derrick Washington, RB, Tuskegee (PW)
    3rd-Andre Ellington, RB, Clemson (PW)
    5th-Marcus Lattimore, RB, South Carolina (OV, CI)
    7th-Robbie Rouse, RB, Fresno State (U)

    Trend-RB not much of a need

    Wide Receivers
    4thKenny Stills, WR, Oklahoma (OV)
    2nd-Markus Wheaton, WR, Oregon State (OV)
    2nd-Robert Woods, WR, USC (OV, CI)
    1st-Deandre Hopkins, WR, Clemson (PW, CI)
    1st-Tavon Austin, WR, West Virginia (PW)
    UFA-Marquess Wilson, WR, Washington State (PW)
    3rd-Stedman Bailey, WR, West Virginia (PW)

    UFA-Anthony Amos, Middle Tennessee State (PW)
    UFA-Tyrone Goard, WR, Eastern Kentucky (PW)
    2nd-Quinton Patton, WR, La Tech (CI)
    1st-Cordarelle Patterson, WR, Tennessee (CI)

    Trend-Almost half are seen as top 75 selections.  The other half is UFA.  Alot of big names in there.  At least one will be a WR next year for the Pats.

    Tight Ends
    UFA-Travis Tannahill, TE, Kansas State (PW)
    UFA-Hubie Graham, TE, Pitt (PW)
    5th-Travis Kelce, TE, Cincinnati (CI)

    Trend-Not much of a need.  

    Offensive Line
    3rd-Chris Faulk, OT, LSU (OV)
    2nd-Dallas Thomas, OL, Tennessee (OV)
    1st-DJ Fluker, OT, Alabama (OV)
    UFA-Ryan Jensen, OT, Colorado State-Pueblo (PW)

    2nd-David Bahktiari, OT, Colorado (CI)
    6th-Ricky Wagner, OT, Wisconsin (CI)
    2nd-Justin Pugh, OT, Syracuse (CI)

    Trend-About half are top 75 selections.  I could see a 3rd rounder being used here if one fell.

    Defensive Line
    2nd-Tank Carradine, DE, Florida State (OV)
    5th-David Bass, DE, Missouri Western (PW)
    6th-Jared SMith, DL, UNH (PW)
    UFA-Michael Brooks, DT, East Carolina (PW)
    UFA-Earl Okine, DE, Florida (PW)
    UFA-Toben Opurum, DE, Kansas (PW)
    UFA-Lerentee McCray, DE, Florida (PW)
    3rd-Corey Lemonier, DE, Auburn (CI)

    Trend-Looks like BB is disinterested in this area.  Either that, or he's not showing us anything.  

    Linebackers
    4th-Kiko Alonso, LB, Oregon (OV)
    1st-Dion Jordan, LB, Oregon (OV)
    UFA-Sam Barrington, LB, South Florida (PW)
    3rd-Sean Porter, LB, Texas A&M (PW)
    4th-Zaviar Gooden, LB, Missouri (PW)
    3rd-Jon Bostic, LB, Florida (PW)
    3rd-Jelani Jenkins, LB, Florida (PW)

    Trend-BB seems very interested in LBs in the 3rd round who are in the 6'1" 240 area.  Could use a 3rd here.

    Defensive Backs
    4th-Tyrann Mathieu, CB, LSU (CI, OV)
    2nd-Desmond Trufant, CB, Washington (OV)
    7th-Duke Williams, CB/S, Nevada (PW)
    UFA-Alonzo Tweedy, S, Virginia Tech (PW)
    6th-Marc Anthony, CB, California (PW)
    3rd-Sanders Commings, CB, Georgia (PW)
    UFA-Reggie Topps, CB/S, Utah (PW)
    UFA-Kayvon Webster, CB, South Florida (PW)
    UFA-Don Jones, S, Arkansas State (PW)
    UFA-Jordan Kovacs, S, Michigan (PW)
    UFA-Bradley McDougald, S, Kansas (PW)
    UFA-Josh Evans, S, Florida (PW)
    3rd-Phillip Thomas, S, Fresno State (PW)

    Trend-BB seems a bit disinterested here as well.  Almost half are UFA's.  

    My Prediction -   BB trades #29 for a 2nd and 3rd.  Also receives a 2nd for Mallett.  

    2nd-DE Carradine

    2nd-WR Wheaton

    2nd-WR Bailey

    3rd-OT Bahktiari

    3rd-LB Bostic

    7th-CB Marc Anthony

    7th-QB Tuel

    Trend-BB seems very interested in LBs in the 3rd round who are in the 6'1" 240 area.  Could use a 3rd here.

    Defensive Backs

    UFA-Bradley McDougald, S, Kansas (PW)
    UFA-Josh Evans, S, Florida (PW)
    3rd-Phillip Thomas, S, Fresno State (PW)

    Trend-BB seems a bit disinterested here as well.  Almost half are UFA's.  

    My Prediction -   BB trades #29 for a 2nd and 3rd.  Also receives a 2nd for Mallett.  

    2nd-DE Carradine

    2nd-WR Wheaton

    2nd-WR Bailey

    3rd-OT Bahktiari

    3rd-LB Bostic

    7th-CB Marc Anthony

    7th-QB Tuel

     




    That'd be a pretty good haul, IMO... particularly added talend on the edge and at WR though I'd prefer to see them target a CB in Rd 3 instead of a LB.  Bahktiari looks like a tough kid, def their style of OL though his size (6-4 303) projects better to OG.

     

    Kayvon Webster is a name that I like a lot... think he could be a name to write down as someone BB could target higher than projected throwing BDC into a frenzy because they don't know his name (so he must not be good right? ha)... but this kid has most every attribute that BB values in a CB... good size, speed and triangle #'s, physical and active, plays the game like it means something to him and is an excellent, secure tackler... particularly in the open field.

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

    RB certainly doesn't appear to be a Day 1 or 2 need and unless they do some manuevering, they won't be able to target one until Rd 7... that we all know... with that said, there's a kid that can prob be had in Rd 7 or maybe as an URFA that intrigues me.

    Check out FSU's Chris Thompson (5-7+ 188).  Kid is very sudden, has excellent speed to the perimeter and plays a lot tougher than his size would indicate... really runs the ball hard and with good balance/power which is probassisted by his low center of gravity... he def has some Danny Woodhead to his game.

    He also look to have some upside as a receiver out of the backfield racking up (21) receptions (including 8 vs. Clemson) in his first (8) games before injury his knee, which knocked him out for the rest of the season.
