    Anyone buying into NE moving up for a WR?  I think it is a total smokescreen, even though there are good players, would not present the value.




    I just don't see that jjd...I more likely see us moving back into rd. 2 picking up an early second from a QB hungry team, then maybe turning our original 2nd into a 3rd and 4th...there are many potential starters and good depth to be found in this year's 3rd and 4th rounds, including  #2 wr's like  Bryant and Abbrederis...

    *My Wild-Card Player is Ohio St. RB Carlos Hyde.  I really, really like him and think he could be a very elite RB in the NFL.  I know it isn't considered "Good Value" to draft a RB in the 1st this day and age, but I wouldn't put it past BB to take Hyde at 29, and I would be very happy with the pick if it happened.  I think he is a special combination of size, speed, vision, burst, and power.

    I'll be interested to see if he pops on Hill or Hyde on Day 2.

    I would rather they draft Charles Sims WVU! He's just as big and can catch the ball out of the backfield as well as being a big back.

    They're the same height, but Hyde has 15 or 16 pounds on Sims.

    You'd rather have Sims than Hyde at any point in the draft?

    I like all of your picks and would love to see Borland in the 3rd, but most analysts don't see him making it that far. I think he will be a great linebacker.

    Rather have Tripp,Shazier or Kirksey! Borland won't be available at 62 so unless they make a trade and draft in the 2nd round early Borland won't be available to them. Moseley and Shazier are the only two linebackers that are 1rst round graded, Barr and Mack are more DE's than LB's.

    Another Cobb sleeper for MB,


    Halfback Terrance Cobb, of Cumberland College, Ky, is a sleeper prospect that is flying under the radar. Cobb is 5-10.1, 218, ran a 4.42 forty-time for scouts, and had a whopping 1991 rushing yards and 26 TDs in 2012, when he was named the BSN offensive player of the year. In 2013, Cobb had an injury filled season, but still managed to post 540 rushing yards, with 6 TDs, in just 3 games.

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

    Draft maneuvering:  


    The general consensus among league sources is there will be just one or two quarterbacks taken in the first round of the draft, with as many as six quarterbacks being selected in round two.


    Several teams that own a pick within the top-ten picks in the draft are reportedly looking to trade down and stockpile picks. The Texans at pick No.1, the Rams at pick No. 2, and the Raiders at pick No. 5, are three teams picking in the top five of the draft that are looking to move down, if the price is right. Buffalo at pick No. 9, is in an interesting slot in the draft, since they could attract attention from teams looking to move up for DT Aaron Donald, if he's still on the board, since the Rams at pick No. 13, the Bears at pick No. 14, and the Cowboys at pick No. 16, are all said to covet Donald, and could attempt to position themselves ahead of Detroit at pick No. 10, since the Lions have shown some interest in the Pitt defensive tackle. The Chargers at pick No. 25, are another team that's in great position to attract attention in the bottom part of the draft from teams interested in moving up for a quarterback, since they sit one pick ahead of Cleveland - pick No. 26, which is the slot where many expect the Browns to take a quarterback in the draft.


    http://www.eastcoastsportsnews.com/2014_NFL_Draft.html" rel="nofollow">http://www.eastcoastsportsnews.com/2014_NFL_Draft.html


    NE could be in play at 29 also, even if someone jumps Cleveland.

    I bet you we will not trade back.  Teams aren't going to want to move up into the late 20's.  I think BB would love to, but I doubt we find a trade partner.  I'm saying we either pick at 29 or move up slightly.

    Cannot commit without knowing who is on the board #29 and whether or not someone wants our pick!  Can't be decided without knowing the context...If you are asking me if he's a "got to have player/difference maker"...that's an easy answer IMO...no, not in comparison to what we need to win a SB.

    Let's say that Ealy, Nix and all other conceivable defenders are there, but Pryor isn't.

    Nix would seem to be a 10 year player that solidifies  the D-line.  I like Ealy, but would take Nix.  This is really a difficult draft to predict in the first two rds, talent galore.

    That's Nix to me...a ten year player if he stays healthy, a lot more athletic than some think.....Ealy COULD be a special pass rusher given how often he was doubled to let Sam run wild....


     


    Deone Buchannon will be there in the second, I think, when they DRAFT...HE'S PRETTY GOOD AS WELL...BUT IF NOT, YOU'VE GOT lOTSON/lsu, IN THE THIRD OR dIXON/BAYLOR, IN THE 4TH (Opps, caps, sorry)..forgot Sunseri/Alabama in the 5th or 6th..all are more than passable

    So, Marqise Lee is sitting there at #29... do you take him?


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     




    Cannot commit without knowing who is on the board #29 and whether or not someone wants our pick!  Can't be decided without knowing the context...If you are asking me if he's a "got to have player/difference maker"...that's an easy answer IMO...no, not in comparison to what we need to win a SB.

    Let's say that Ealy, Nix and all other conceivable defenders are there, but Pryor isn't.


     


     


     




    That's Nix to me...a ten year player if he stays healthy, a lot more athletic than some think.....Ealy COULD be a special pass rusher given how often he was doubled to let Sam run wild....


     


     


     


    Deone Buchannon will be there in the second, I think, when they DRAFT...HE'S PRETTY GOOD AS WELL...BUT IF NOT, YOU'VE GOT lOTSON/lsu, IN THE THIRD OR dIXON/BAYLOR, IN THE 4TH (Opps, caps, sorry)..forgot Sunseri/Alabama in the 5th or 6th..all are more than passable




    I like sunseri From Alabama a lot, If I had too choose I'd take Lee still.

    I think a team that drafts Will Sutton and gets him to play at 285/290, will be getting a steal. A year ago this guy was Aaron Donald, now some team will select Sutton late in round two/early round three and have a defensive tackle that potentially could play like a top 15 pick if he can drop 15 pounds (and keep it off). Anyone see this guy's stuff from 2012? He was pretty good.

    I'm calling it now.  This year's patented BB "reach," Brock Vereen in the 3rd.  I wouldn't mind.  I doubt he is there in the 6th anyway like everyone seems to be predicting.

    19 days until we can hear the immortal words with the 29th pick in the 2014 draft we have a trade...


     




    I bet you we will not trade back.  Teams aren't going to want to move up into the late 20's.  I think BB would love to, but I doubt we find a trade partner.  I'm saying we either pick at 29 or move up slightly.


    Don't bet on that! As for the last fourteen years I've been watching BB draft players, he sees value in numbers, if he's presented with an option of trading out and gaining multiple picks vs. trading up and losing a 2nd or 3rd round pick in the process he's going to trade out 75% of the time ! You could be right and this is the year he has a player in mind that he has to have but I wouldn't bet 2 wooden nickels on it!!!!

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

    I have a plan lets all get together here on this site and watch the draft unfold and when #29 arrives everyone make their pick before the 15 minutes are up, let's say all picks must be mad before the 13 minute mark that way we all have time to post our pick and figuring if the Patriots are trading out it will already be done by that point in their available time, if they trade out then we can all come back on day two and start over. 18 days until those immortal words are spoken: We have a trade!!!!!
