    Re: ***2014 PATRIOTS DRAFT THREAD***

    Just for suspense and viewership they will stage a power failure just as one team is about to make a pick and so they will suspend the rest of round one till the next day and shift everything back one day. That gives them not only another day of TV but adds suspense and a lot of talk about the power outage itself.


    During the 24 hour delay the Jets will make a trade as will the Pats. The Pats will be accused of orchestrating something. The Jets will not be even though it is revealed that someone working for the Jets was in charge of some aspect connected with the outage. 20 years from now someone will come forward and reveal the Jets did in fact conspire to make the outage. Sterling, former owner of the Clippers, will be recorded making some awful remark to his latest "girl friend". Vladimir Putin, owner of the Kiev Cossacks in the European Division (established in 2024) demands that the next draft be held in either Kiev or at his suite in the Kremlin. Some armed masked men claiming to be New Yorkers but resembling Russian special opps take over the NFL offices in NY. Because they are armed with guns several members of various militias come to NY to assist them. Fortunately when they discover none of them speak English they decide to take a ride on the Circle Cruise around Manhattan before they go home.

    Thanks, Cap!  I'd love to see any of those first 5/6 on Day 2 and Thomas is an intriguing kid in the return game!


    Can't wait for things to start tomorrow... it's like Christmas Eve for adult Patriots fans tonight, haha.

    Re: ***2014 PATRIOTS DRAFT THREAD***

    So to date, I've only done one mock... posted it back in November... get a load of this hilarity, hahahahahahaha


     


     


     


    Below is my Mock V1:


     



    Rd 1: OL- Zack Martin- 6-4 308- Notre Dame- Extremely good all around player,team captain, extremely durable and has a ton of quality experience (49 consecutive starts over the last 4 years), versatile and can probably play all five positions on the OL, but at the very least can start at either OG spot and play either OT spot in a pinch. He also shows good feed/quicks/lateral movement ability… there really isn’t much to NOT like about the kid… and BB and BK have formed a solid relationship in recent years… the pick just makes too much sense. Alternatives: Oklahoma State CB Justin Gilbert, LSU DT Ego Ferguson, Stanford OL David Yankey


     


    Rd 2: CB- Darqueze Dennard- 5-11 197- Michigan State- Ironically, this kid caught my eye when MSU was playing in South Bend this year. Dennard (a cousin of Alfonzo), a team captain, is an ultra-competitive and extremely tough kid that will come at you all game long… he also has excellent speed, agility, quicks, ball skills… is an effective blitzer and is a solid tackler. Kid could start from Day 1 of camp, IMO and gives you a 4 down ability. He might be my favorite player in this class. Alternatives: VT CB/S Antone Exum, PSU DT Daquan Jones, South Carolina DT Kelcy Quarles


     


    Rd 3: DT- Dominique Easley- 6-2 285- Florida- Going back on what I had said a few days ago in regards to 300 pounds being the standard baseline for a BB DT, I love this kid’s game and he’s one of the better DL in this class, when healthy. Excellent burst off the snap, scheme/positional versatility, athletic, disruptive, good power, plays nasty and physical, doesn’t take plays off and is proven at the SEC level. On the negative side, he’s 285 and has had a couple of knee injuries in college. This would be huge value at this point in the draft. Alternatives: Washington DT Danny Shelton, Alabama DT Ed Stinson, Iowa TE CJ Fiedorowicz


     


    Rd 4: TE- Arthur Lynch- 6-5 254- Georgia- Is a local boy, playing his HS ball down in Dartmouth, MA… he’s a team captain, with very good ability/upside as an inline blocker. He’s not a burner, but can make plays in the short/intermediate areas and provide size/ability in the red zone/down by the goal line. Alternatives: MSU ILB Max Bullough, Wisconsin LB Chris Borland, Wisconin WR Jared Abbrederis


     


    Rd 6: S- Shamiel Gary- 6-0 210- Oklahoma State- This kid popped to me on tape… I've watched a lot of safety tape in the past couple months and I think this kid might be one of the best that I've seen in this class... which says a lot considering he's currently projected as a Rd 7/URFA type. He has very good read/react, consistently diagnosing and closing quickly on passes and has the awareness and ball skills to make plays on the football (9 PD this season). He's probably a 4.55-4.6 kid but shows good fluidity in coverage, but his instincts allow him to get to the ball quickly and he's often in the back pocket of his man. He's a kid that could cause Patriots Nation to melt down if selected on Day 2 of the draft (similar to Wilson and Harmon), but I think the pick would be warranted. Really like this kids game and think he’ll rise up draft boards.


     


    Rd 6: RB- Tyler Gaffney- 6-0 227- Stanford- He’s a big, athletic (played pro baseball for a bit) workhorse back that lacks a ton of breakaway ability, but has the size that BB likes, can catch the football and can grind a defense down.


     


    Rd 7: QB- Kenny Guiton- 6-2 208- Ohio State- A late round flier on an athletic QB with mobility, upside and accuracy that really played well when given an opportunity this year.

    Re: ***2014 PATRIOTS DRAFT THREAD***

    Below is my Final Mock:



    I have Louisville S Calvin Pryor, OSU LB Ryan Shazier and VT CB Kyle Fuller as the top prospects on my board, with that said, I don’t believe any of the (3) will be available at pick #29, so unless they’re willing to trade up, you won’t see any of them on the roster next year… there’s also a good likelihood that BB trades back, especially if one of the QB’s are still available… both HOU and JAX pass on one early, they could come calling. If BB and Co. decide to stand pat, I believe that the below outcome is realistic and possible.



    Rd 1: DL Stephon Tuitt (6-5 304) ND- Tuitt looks every bit the part of a prototype BB DL. Long, athletic, powerful and versatile… he can play along either front with the ability to disrupt on a regular basis. I see a potential impact talent up front. Alternatives: USC WR Marquise Lee / Missouri DE/OLB Kony Ealy / GT DE/OLB Jeremiah Attaochu / FSU WR Kelvin Benjamin / ND DT Louis Nix III / Nevada OL Joel Bitonio



    Rd 2: DE/OLB Trent Murphy (6-5 250) Stanford- Long, big motored edge player that plays with some nasty and will disrupt off the edge. He’ also brings the ability play in space and looks like a kid that would join the edge rotation as a rookie. Alternatives: LSU WR Jarvis Landry / PSU DT DaQuan Jones / ND TE Troy Niklas / Florida DL Dominique Easley / WSU S Deone Bucannon



    Rd 3: LB/S Telvin Smith (6-3 218) FSU- This kid is fast, ferocious, rangy, athletic and aggressive and projects very well to a hybrid LB/S type role, due to his ability to cover TE’s and RB’s and make plays sideline to sideline. He’s one of my favorite prospects in this class. Alternatives: Iowa TE CJ Fiedorowicz / South Carolina WR Bruce Ellington / Alabama QB AJ McCarron / South Carolina DT Kelcy Quarles / LSU RB Jeremy Hill



    Rd 4: WR Jared Abbrederis (6-1 195) Wisconsin- Former walk-on, he’s a self made player and maybe the best route runner in the draft. He’s not a big play threat, but brings savvy, reliability and very good hands to the mix and could quickly become a trusted target for TB and move the sticks on a consistent basis. Alternatives: Iowa LB Christian Kirksey / Vanderbilt OL Wesley Johnson / FSU RB Devonta Freeman / Alabama DE/OLB Adrian Hubbard / Michigan State LB Max Bullough



    Rd 4: TE- Arthur Lynch- 6-5 254- Georgia- He’s a local boy; playing his HS ball down in Dartmouth, MA… he’s a team captain, with very good ability/upside as an inline blocker. He’s not a burner, but can make plays in the short/intermediate areas and provide size/ability in the red zone/down by the goal line. He should provide depth at a position of need and projects as a potential #2 TE. Alternatives: Wisconsin S Dez Southward / Georgia QB Aaron Murray / Alabama DL Ed Stinson / UVA DL Brent Urban / VT DB Antone Exum



    Rd 6: CB Dexter McDougle (5-10 196) Maryland- A tough, competitive, quick footed CB with good COD, ball skills and awareness. He’s good value here as an injury took away a good portion of his season. New Patriots OL coach Dave DeGuglielmo was the OL coach at Maryland last season and should be familiar with him. Alternatives: NC State DB Dontae Johnson / PSU OL John Urschel / VT QB Logan Thomas / ND OL Chris Watt / Missouri LB Michael Sam



    Rd 6: S Vinnie Sunseri (5-11 210) Alabama- Smart, instinctive kid that understands the game and should and can contribute immediately on ST (BB loves targeting ST upside on Day 3), while providing depth at S. Alternatives: NW WR Kain Colter / Florida TE//HB Trey Burton / Arizona LB Marquis Flowers / Iowa LB James Morris / WF WR Michael Campanaro



    Rd 7: RB Rajion Neal (5-11 220) Tennessee- BB loves late round/URFA SEC backs with size and Neal is just that. He’s a good sized kid, with good feet, vision and balance that gets up field quickly, can catch the football and has upside in pass pro. He could be a solid late round find. Alternatives: IU TE Ted Bolser / NDSU QB Brock Jensen / LSU RB Alfred Blue / Oklahoma TE/HB Trey Millard / UMass TE Rob Blanchflower



    Undrafted Rookie Free Agents: WF FB/DT Nikita Whitlock / Louisville WR Damian Copeland / Boise State OL Matt Paradis / Rutgers S Jeremy Deering / Indiana RB Stephen Houston

    Nice work on that one, MB.  I would take that class in a second.  Good call on Trent Murphy.  He has become kind of a forgotten man, but very underrated during this draft process.  I would be happy with Tuitt if they took him in the first round.  He wouldn't be my first choice, but he is definitely a solid pick there.  Go Pats!!!

    I have a bunch listed as alternatives... could easily see a Watt or Urschel in Rd 6 or even a Wesley Johnson in Rd 4... or 5 if they can land a pick there.

    Honestly, I think either Benjamin or Lee would be terrific pics there.  Those guys could both easily develop into number one wide receivers.  I really think Belichick has set himself up nicely to draft the best player on the board this year, regardless of position.  I also feel very strongly that we will not trade out of the 29th spot.  I feel like we need 2 or three very talented players out of this class, not eight or 10 role players.  Plus I think that fifth-year option for first-round picks is a very valuable piece of the equation.  Look for BB to make his pick tonight, and don't be surprised if he jumps all over one of the blue-chip wide receivers if they fall to that point.

    I almost look at Benjamin in the mold of Hernandez. Yes - he is a listed WR, but at 6'5" 240 with great hands he could play the role of the versatile pass catcher (slot, out wide, off tackle). With BB personally working out the FSU kids, I hope he had his eyes on KB and evaluated his knowledge of the game thoroughly.

    Agree, he'd look very good in the slot against a LB or Safety.

    Rd 2: DE/OLB Trent Murphy (6-5 250) Stanford- Long, big motored edge player that plays with some nasty and will disrupt off the edge. He’ also brings the ability play in space and looks like a kid that would join the edge rotation as a rookie. Alternatives: LSU WR Jarvis Landry / PSU DT DaQuan Jones / ND TE Troy Niklas / Florida DL Dominique Easley / WSU S Deone Bucannon


     



    Rd 3: LB/S Telvin Smith (6-3 218) FSU- This kid is fast, ferocious, rangy, athletic and aggressive and projects very well to a hybrid LB/S type role, due to his ability to cover TE’s and RB’s and make plays sideline to sideline. He’s one of my favorite prospects in this class. Alternatives: Iowa TE CJ Fiedorowicz / South Carolina WR Bruce Ellington / Alabama QB AJ McCarron / South Carolina DT Kelcy Quarles / LSU RB Jeremy Hill


     



    Rd 4: WR Jared Abbrederis (6-1 195) Wisconsin- Former walk-on, he’s a self made player and maybe the best route runner in the draft. He’s not a big play threat, but brings savvy, reliability and very good hands to the mix and could quickly become a trusted target for TB and move the sticks on a consistent basis. Alternatives: Iowa LB Christian Kirksey / Vanderbilt OL Wesley Johnson / FSU RB Devonta Freeman / Alabama DE/OLB Adrian Hubbard / Michigan State LB Max Bullough


     



    Rd 4: TE- Arthur Lynch- 6-5 254- Georgia- He’s a local boy; playing his HS ball down in Dartmouth, MA… he’s a team captain, with very good ability/upside as an inline blocker. He’s not a burner, but can make plays in the short/intermediate areas and provide size/ability in the red zone/down by the goal line. He should provide depth at a position of need and projects as a potential #2 TE. Alternatives: Wisconsin S Dez Southward / Georgia QB Aaron Murray / Alabama DL Ed Stinson / UVA DL Brent Urban / VT DB Antone Exum


     



    Rd 6: CB Dexter McDougle (5-10 196) Maryland- A tough, competitive, quick footed CB with good COD, ball skills and awareness. He’s good value here as an injury took away a good portion of his season. New Patriots OL coach Dave DeGuglielmo was the OL coach at Maryland last season and should be familiar with him. Alternatives: NC State DB Dontae Johnson / PSU OL John Urschel / VT QB Logan Thomas / ND OL Chris Watt / Missouri LB Michael Sam


     



    Rd 6: S Vinnie Sunseri (5-11 210) Alabama- Smart, instinctive kid that understands the game and should and can contribute immediately on ST (BB loves targeting ST upside on Day 3), while providing depth at S. Alternatives: NW WR Kain Colter / Florida TE//HB Trey Burton / Arizona LB Marquis Flowers / Iowa LB James Morris / WF WR Michael Campanaro


     



    Rd 7: RB Rajion Neal (5-11 220) Tennessee- BB loves late round/URFA SEC backs with size and Neal is just that. He’s a good sized kid, with good feet, vision and balance that gets up field quickly, can catch the football and has upside in pass pro. He could be a solid late round find. Alternatives: IU TE Ted Bolser / NDSU QB Brock Jensen / LSU RB Alfred Blue / Oklahoma TE/HB Trey Millard / UMass TE Rob Blanchflower


     



    Undrafted Rookie Free Agents: WF FB/DT Nikita Whitlock / Louisville WR Damian Copeland / Boise State OL Matt Paradis / Rutgers S Jeremy Deering / Indiana RB Stephen Houston




    Can accept each one of your picks because I agree with your read out on all of them, including almost every one of your listed alternatives. We've mentioned each one of these  guys over the course of this draft prep season. Tuitt does not have the raw physical talent Hageman does but does not have the question marks either so he's entirely acceptable to me and fills a real need. Especially love the Abbrederis pick because his game reminds me so much of Belitnikoff and in every Wisconsin game I watched this year he did nothing but make plays all game long...The guy is quick, pretty fast in game speed and makes catches, especially when you need them. Lynch and Sunseri are completely underrated, Muyrphy has a non stop motor and is solid and Telvin Smith  would blow people away with his athleticism...if the draft goes this way we all walk away happy...except for the BB haters Association. I predict BB will make at least one "BB Special" reach pick that will produce the predictable outrage and renew the BB Sucks as a GM greek chorus for months to come...LMFAO!


    Thanks for all your efforts my friend...this place wouldn't be the same without your insights and efforts!


    BRAVO SIR!

    Re: ***2014 PATRIOTS DRAFT THREAD***

    I cannot wait until Saturday night and Sunday everyone on this thread has done a great job of discussing different players and I feel as I I could run a draft board based on the information I have read. Looking forward to actually seeing who the pats pick and waiting for the big surprise. Have a great weekend everyone and enjoy the draft.

    Below is my Final Mock:


     


     


     



    I have Louisville S Calvin Pryor, OSU LB Ryan Shazier and VT CB Kyle Fuller as the top prospects on my board, with that said, I don’t believe any of the (3) will be available at pick #29, so unless they’re willing to trade up, you won’t see any of them on the roster next year… there’s also a good likelihood that BB trades back, especially if one of the QB’s are still available… both HOU and JAX pass on one early, they could come calling. If BB and Co. decide to stand pat, I believe that the below outcome is realistic and possible.


     


     


     



    Rd 1: DL Stephon Tuitt (6-5 304) ND- Tuitt looks every bit the part of a prototype BB DL. Long, athletic, powerful and versatile… he can play along either front with the ability to disrupt on a regular basis. I see a potential impact talent up front. Alternatives: USC WR Marquise Lee / Missouri DE/OLB Kony Ealy / GT DE/OLB Jeremiah Attaochu / FSU WR Kelvin Benjamin / ND DT Louis Nix III / Nevada OL Joel Bitonio

    Thanks, brothah!


    Totally agree on Abbrederis.  All this kid does is run good routes, seperate consistently, beating high end talent in the process (owned Bradley Roby), pluck with his hands and generate 1st downs.  I was amazed at how many times his QB(s) over/underthrew him, so his stats should've been even better.  The ceiling may not be high, but he floor is and I want a kid that can come in and contribute early and I think he's that type of kid.


    Haha, yeah, I kinda look forward to a board melt down, especially when they're pissed about getting a good player... though I too am still a bit mind-blown over the Tavon Wilson pick haha.


    Your contributions on the thread have been a welcomed addition... you bring very good content... hopefully you'll be back at with us again next year!

    Heck yeah I'll be here...this stuff is what I live for...I have several friends who are crazed about the draft as well...oh yeah, I'll be here...you either get this or you don't and I'm happy we Band of Brothers do!
