    I just have a feeling that Margus Hunt will be the pick for New England at 29.  I feel like his rawness will be enough for him to slide to that point but his unique physical attributes and upside will be too much for Belichick to pass up.

     




    Yeah, I've been saying this for awhile.  If Hunt is there at 29, I think the Pats may take him because I doubt he gets past SF. (This assumes of course that NYG don't take him as Mb fears).  I think he makes a huge impact on special teams year 1 as he learns and improves and replaces Ninko in 2014 but in the meantime he comes in situationally as a pass rusher.  Of all the choices being bantered about, I think Hunt is the most likely choice if the Pats stay at 29.

     



    hes 5th de on my list of posible pats. with  his special teams he had me thinking bb dreaming ahout this guy early on. said so here.

    Hey Ricky, how ya been?  In reality, none of these QBs are first round talent.  I would wait till Rd 2 or go back and trade with NE at 29 if desperate to get "your guy".  A top 10 pick for a QB is very risky this year.  NFL network reported that there may be a lot of trade movement this year. KC wants out of the 1st pick and move down.  There are other teams with high picks. Others that may move up to get one of three highly rated OTs. It was reported Phily was checking out Tavon Austin and they may want to fall back to grab him.  This draft is crazy, nothing set in stone all in jello.

    I also think NEP gets Swope in with their third round pick.

    In response to Godvernment's comment:

    NFL Network's Mike Mayock stated on Path to the Draft that he only anticipates one quarterback being drafted in the first round.

    It'll likely be Syracuse's Ryan Nassib, who is crystallizing as the draft's top QB. "I don’t think there’s going to be more than one quarterback taken in the first round, which is not what I thought three months ago," Mayock said. "I think there’s still going to be some activity at the back end of that first round, but most of the activity for quarterbacks this year? I think second and third rounds." It's not out of the question that West Virginia's Geno Smith could be available for the Jaguars at No. 33 overall.-Roto



    if jacks take geno there could be 4 that get picked up until jets pick.

    if buff takes nasib, i think jets may grab geno

    while jenkins was one of my guys early on, id for sure take carradine there.

    option move back and taek okafor and add a pick.

    Hard for me to see BB taking in the first someone off an ACL tear. Even if he shows he can run, there are too many questions about how effective he will be on the field. With Jenkins you know what you are and are not getting.

    I'm working on my mock too, but it's so hard to do these things.  

     

    KC-Joeckel

    JAX- Fisher

    OAK-Floyd

    Phil-Smith

    Det-Milliner

     

    After #5, I think it gets crazy.  I think that is pretty much the top 5 picks in any order.  I think Jordan has a shot at cracking it, but no one else.

    Two Predictions:

    1. The Patriots WILL trade out of the first round

    -Too few picks, and tons of depth and value.  No way BB stays pat.

    2. The Patriots will NOT draft Jamar Taylor (CB-Boise State)

    -Too much speculation about him to the Pats to be true...

    I agree that the patriots probably will not drafted Taylor. You're absolutely right. usually when there is this much speculation about New England loving a prospect it doesn't work out. On the other hand, I disagree that we will trade back out of the first round. I think BB would love to, but I don't think we're going to have a trading partner there.

    RE: Jamar Taylor... for what it's worth, there was a ton of smoke around Chandler to NE leading up to last year's draft, so the smoke around Jamar can't be totally dismissed.

    I'd be happy with him or Hayden if they go CB in Rd 1.

    You're right.  A lot of people started linking Chandler to NE a week or 2 before the draft last year.  That was why I was so suprised when BB actually took him.  I'm with you.  I would take either Taylor or Hayden in a heart-beat and be very happy about it.

    I was thinking about it and now I'm starting to doubt they'd trade out of the 1st for anything less then a 2nd and early 3rd or a 2nd next year. The value of the optional 5th year for 1st round picks might be to much to turn up for simply a 2nd and 4th pick. They might not value moving back a dozen spots just for a 4th if it costs them an additional year at a reasonable rate for a top end player

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

    Disclosure : This will be my first thread offering since the mighty 2013 Draft Thread V2's initial posting.

    I don't follow the College game ...at all - so I never really have a clue until all the hype starts  in earnest (for me it's typically a couple months b4 the draft )

    I do however check in here to get eductated on the Pats angle on the prospects  and as always you guys are pretty 'frickin' amazing with your analysis .

    So once again ...

    A big thank you goes out to MB and the rest of you draftniks .

    That said ...

     IMO -

    Unlike past years when it was pretty clear  BB was going to :

    A) Trade back to later rounds

    B) Trade back for future picks

    C) Get ahead of an impending need ( i.e  Solder to eventually replace Light )

    D) Draft at least one TE

    E ) Hook up a trade with Andy / Ozzie / Al

    I'm now resigned to admitting that BB is the NFL Drafts ultimate enigma and simply cannot be pegged .

    21011 & 2012's draft proved it .

    ( Taking back-to-back rbs and then Mallete ...again NOT parlaying first pick of 2nd round... Trading up in the 1st round ...TWICE ! )

    Nobody knows what he's going to do .

    It wouldn't shock me to see BB commit the NFL drafts biggest sin :

    Moving up by trading away a future pick and mortgaging the future

    ( actually ..that one would shock me )

     

    Here's my 2 cents on my own personal Draft Wishlist :

     

    1)  4 -3 type DE that can get after the Qb - Don't care about run stopping ability - that's why we've got Mayo / Spikes / HighT

    2 ) Playmaker at wr ( could care less about size / speed )

    3) A high future pick to be acquired ( Last year - I missed not having an obscure team to root against )

    4) Mallete Trade ( maybe for that future high pick ?)

       He's unlikely to still be here when Brady's contract expires and I just don't believe he'd be able to pick up the slack if the unthinkable was to happen again

    5) Acquire Lawrence Okeye .

        I get the feeling that a couple years from now people will be saying " I can't believe this guy could have been had for a late round pick ". Either that or people say " Who's was that ?"  It's more likely the latter  ( considering the guy's never even put on a helmet , but that's true of everybody who's ever played ...gotta start somewhere ) It just seems like he's got all the intangibles to get it done . Plus - of all the positions in the game ( that don't include kicking a ball ) D-Line seems to be the one that you can plug a newbie into the easiest .

    My guess is a team like the 49ers will take a flyer ( late 6th ? ) while BB will most likely hope he slips thru the cracks and accepts our UFA invite ( obviously gonna be a ton of themFoxboro-bound this year ) .

     

    In conclusion ( crowd cheers ) ...

    I predict BB trades back and out of 1st  ( Bills move up for Nassib ? )

    Trades up in 2nd ( short hop to leapfrog Broncs for falling DE ? )

    Trades sideways in 3rd ( ??? )

    Trades a vet for a draft pick

    (Maybe Ballard back to NYG 's for a 4th ? How about Mallete to the Jets for their future 2 ? ...only half-kidding )

    Uses the phrase "good value" 17 times in post draft presser .

     

    HAVE A GREAT DRAFT WEEKEND ALL !

    It wouldn't shock me to see BB commit the NFL drafts biggest sin :

    Moving up by trading away a future pick and mortgaging the future

    ( actually ..that one would shock me )

    Given the new CBA and Brady's window, combined with last years moves and the core of the team essentially locked up for years this move wouldn't surprise me actually. The more I think about it the more I convince myself he'll move back into the 3rd-6th range using next years picks

     

    Here's my 2 cents on my own personal Draft Wishlist :

     

    1)  4 -3 type DE that can get after the Qb - Don't care about run stopping ability - that's why we've got Mayo / Spikes / HighT

    I'm more of a DT type of person but I wouldn't complain agaist a DE either. The only thing I question is that Nink fits the mold so perfectly for the type of player BB likes (3 down, fundamentally sound, locks down in bigger situations, high motor, smart) that I wonder if he'd go for a 2 down player over Nink. If they go DE they will have to be a Nink upgrade which includes run stopping unless it's a mid round player as a specific pass rusher

    2 ) Playmaker at wr ( could care less about size / speed )

    3) A high future pick to be acquired ( Last year - I missed not having an obscure team to root against )

    Isn't that fun but this year I agree with you that BB might burn a future pick to move back into round 2 or 3 given available talent this year. Imo that would be a better use of picks then trading them for disgruntled vets who last a season or less anyways

    4) Mallete Trade ( maybe for that future high pick ?)

       He's unlikely to still be here when Brady's contract expires and I just don't believe he'd be able to pick up the slack if the unthinkable was to happen again

    Agree, this is the year to trade Mallett as his value won't be any high. I also agree after 14' Mallett is gone in FA because Brady will still be around

    5) Acquire Lawrence Okeye .

        I get the feeling that a couple years from now people will be saying " I can't believe this guy could have been had for a late round pick ". Either that or people say " Who's was that ?"  It's more likely the latter  ( considering the guy's never even put on a helmet , but that's true of everybody who's ever played ...gotta start somewhere ) It just seems like he's got all the intangibles to get it done .

    I really like Okeye too and if available in the 7th I wouldn't complain in the leasat if they used it on him, instead of getting into a bidding war with another team

     

    In conclusion ( crowd cheers ) ...

    I predict BB trades back and out of 1st  ( Bills move up for Nassib ? )

    From latest reports Bills are going to take Nassib at #8 because they think the Jets will take Nassib if they don't

    Trades up in 2nd ( short hop to leapfrog Broncs for falling DE ? )

    This I see as the most likely scenerio. To much talent in the 2nd and 3rd round to not try to get the player you want. I see 2 CB's that the Pats could highly tout in the early 2nd (Taylor, Wren-Wilson) and a couple DL (Jenkins, Hankins, J Williams, Hunt) and I don't see the Pats sitting back at #59 and hoping one falls

    Trades sideways in 3rd ( ??? )

    Possible, but BB is a KMart shopper and this years 3rd offers 2nd round talent and players failing because of injures or drug issues (seems like no matter the year he always rolls the dice on a falling player with red flags)

    Trades a vet for a draft pick

    (Maybe Ballard back to NYG 's for a 4th ? How about Mallete to the Jets for their future 2 ? ...only half-kidding )

    Can't see a Ballard trade. The Pats are very high on the kid and with Hern and Gronk being injury question marks a couple starting caliber TE is hard to find. Besides if Ballard works out you can move Hern to WR giving even more of BB's two favorite words "value" and "flexibility"

    Uses the phrase "good value" 17 times in post draft presser .

     

    HAVE A GREAT DRAFT WEEKEND ALL !

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

    Thanks to everyone who takes the time and spends the effort researching all these players, love this thread. It is the one thread where very rarely do you see name calling and non-patriot related materials. All football all the time.  Looking forward to tomorrow night and the rest of the draft weekend. Have absolutely no idea what the pats will do but am sure it will generate some interesting debates. ENJOY THE WEEKEND EVERYONE!!!!!!!

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

    Here's an interesting thought. We all pegged Hunt to be a 43 DE, which is natural given his 275lb weight. However, he has a ton of strength (38 reps with his long arms) and has the frame (6'8") to add 15 lbs without losing a ton of speed. 10-15lbs is a reasonable gain from rook OTA's to Sept given current NFL standards would it be possible that they pick Hunt with #29 and have him bump up to 290 and use him as a heavy 43 DE during running plays and a smaller quick DT during passing downs? Given his ST ability too he'd be a 4 down player that adds strength to both the run and pass defense. The more I think about it the more it makes sense to me. He'd be the player they were hoping Cunningham would become. Then on passing downs you move Hightower to DE and A. Wilson/Nink as the 3rd coverage LB and you have a 11 man squad of:

     

    Dennard             Hightower             Hunt              Wilfork              Jones            Talib

     

               Nink/A. Wilson                                 Spikes                                   Mayo

     

                                   T. Wilson/Gregory                             McCourty

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

    CaptFoxboro - great post and I have a question for you and the others on the thread -

    Is there any player in this draft that is worth moving up for, trading future picks for, etc...ala Atlanta and Julio Jones, which in my opinion, has helped them. 

    Ziggy Ansah? Could be Vernon Gholston. 

    Star Lutuleilei? Help for Vince, replace Vince

    Wide Receiver - no Megatron or Megatron-lite (Jones) - Tavon Austin?

    Offensive Lineman - never

    This kind of shows how "boring" this draft is - in my humble opinion.

    To me the only player worth moving that far up for is Star. He has the potential to be a Seymour/Wilfork type of impact player

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

    Listening to Gresh and Zo, they are having their annual draft party at the CBS scene in Foxboro. Prob never happen but it would be interesting if we could somehow get all the draftniks together one year at the CBS scene and just have a fun time with the draft. I think I'd prefer day 2 as there is much more action and more intrigue but that would be a good time

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

    Pats trade out of the 1st round to get an extra pick.  

     

    Not in any order Margus Hunt, Quinton Patton, Blidi Wreh-Wilson, & John Simon.

     

    Possible? I don't know just guessing like everyone else.
