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

    Hey MB.  Just a shout-out to your "big board" this year.  I love the prospects that you have identified this year.  If I had to construct a realistic draft for NE, based strictly off of your board, I think I would do the following...


    1). Nix


    I know his stock has fallen in the eyes of many, but I still think he is a blue-chip DT and a near "must pick" if he is available.


    2). ASJ 


    again, his stock has fallen, mainly due to a DUI, but I think he is a very gifted athlete and a great value here.


    3). Urban


    pairing this guy with Nix would give our D-line a tremendous boost.  2 years from now people may wonder how he fell as far as he did.  Tons of upside.


    4A). Logan Thomas


    wing and a prayer here.  One of the most atheletically gifted QBs we've seen.  Give him 2 years behind Brady, polishing his mechanics, and who knows?


    4B). Urschel


    Smart, hard working, and well coached.  More talented than given credit for, too.  I think he will be very good for a long time.


    6A). Exum


    again, a very good and versatile Defensive Back who may slide into the late rounds due to injury history.  Worth the gamble here.


    6B). Gaffney


    we surely need RB help, and Gaffney is underrated.


    7). Morris


    again, LB is a need.  I would like to address it sooner, but quality depth can be found late this year.

    Cody Latimer is a hot name... why? I mean the kid is solid but why is he jumping up the board?

    C.J. Mosley, LB, Alabama


    Mosley has the four things you look for in a linebacker: instincts, motor, sure tackling and the versatility to be an every-down player. He is a relentless, tough and disciplined playmaker. He carries some injury and durability concerns with him into the league, but there isn't anything not to like about what you see from him on tape. He should go off the board in the first half of the first round; I've got him as the No. 8 player on my board.





    [object HTMLDivElement]


    Not a big Mosley fan myself. Ala tends to get the most out of their D players in a pro style system so imo he's reached his ceiling and it's not as high as Hightowers was. Additionally Ala puts a ton of wear and tear on their players and when one is already coming out with a major injury it's never a good sign. In the 2nd I'd take a sot but in the 1st I'd have concerns about his upside and that injury, only because he's coming from Ala

    Saw Lattimer was invited to the Draft in NYC and accepted. Is he really a first rounder? Could be awfully embarrassing to sit there all day with the camera on you...

    He could be a day 2 invite. I think he's worth a 3rd-4th but I can see someone spending a late 2nd on him

    Thanks, brothah!  You could mix and match/debate the final destination of a few of the Day 3 kids, but overall, I'd love that haul... sure would love to get one of the WR's though... there's so many avaiable that there should be some steals available at some point.

    In response to WazzuWheatfarmer's comment:


    Morning Fellas.  Random thought for the day...  I think that UW RB Bishop Sankey could be the perfect fit for our system.  A true all purpose back who has great vision and a real knack for popping a big run.  He is similar to Ridley in skillet, but I like Sankey a little better.  So, my question is would BB consider drafting Sankey at, say 62, and then turning around and dealing Ridley for a 5th rounder or so, possibly grabbing a bigger RB late, or even a priority UDFA to fill the roster?  Far fetched, I know, but just a thought.





    Love him, think he is the best back in this draft, but he is far from perfect. He will fumble...although he is very physical for a guy his size he is a bit on the small side.


    Whoever gets Sankey will be getting a strong, quick back who has GREAT vision. I love watching him run, too me he has been the funnest guy to watch during this whole process - he can block too - and catch. If Sankey were an inch taller and ten pounds heavier we'd be talking about a top 15 pick here. I just don't think you can teach a guy to run with his type of vision - he reads it so fast - then gets through that hole in a flash. And once he's through that hole he picks up huge chunks of real estate.

    Has there been much discussion on UNC DE Kareem Martin anywhere in the previous 126 pages? I don't see him on MBs big board and am curious why. We have the need. He has the size, athleticism, production, and attitude. Yet, no love? What are the thoughts here on his game and where he will be selected?

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

    OK I think I know what I would like BB to do (which is not good because except for the no brainer of drafting Wilfork when he dropped BB does not follow my suggestions... ever):


     


    1. Trade down a few spots in the draft but not far


     


    2. Draft Tuitt to be the next Richard Seymour


     


    3. With our 2nd round pick take Colt Lyerla to be a better Hernandez than Hernandez and put it in his contract that he has to stay clean off the field in every way...


     


    If we get those two guys and they pan out it will be huge... And with this deep draft we will be able to get two or three other competitive players. Maybe another LB, RB and O lineman.

    drafting colt l in rd 2 would be awful. you could easily get him in the 4th rd or later. and with all his ?'s i wouldnt touch him until rd 6. if you're talking one of the top te's if they fall to the end of rd 2, im all for it, but colt, no thanks. if you get tuitt in rd 1, go TE, OL, WR or DT in rd 2. Because Tuitt could play both de and dt for us, if we got him in rd 1, ideally id go for TE, OL, WR, S in rd 2 in that order. but certainly wouldnt pass up another de or dt if value is there

    I can see your point about waiting on Lyerla. I wont disagree about waiting at least one more round on him. And I would not take him if I had not met with him to size him up - which of course I cannot do personally.


     


    I also agree about Tuitt and so about getting another DL as well.


     


    I do not like the idea of spending a pick in rounds 1-3 on a WR this year UNLESS the coaching staff has lost faith in all of the rookie WRs from last year. I prefer to get an RB to a WR due to contract issues next year. And I prefer to get a good interior OL and a good TE and/or another LB rather than RB or WR.


     


    I have to add I am all for talent at any position. I just think we have more needs at some.


     


    And I do hope we are able to trade Mallet though I wont hold my breath.

    Round 1.  Aaron Donald  DT - BB trades #29 and Mallet for NYG 12th pick.  interior pass-rusher can also play End 


    Round 2.  Martin   OG/C,  UCS  - a versatile OL


    Round 3.  Fiedorowicz  TE   Iowa  - (since everyone has this pick, it inevitably won't happen)


    Round 4.  Garoppolo  QB   Eastern Ill  -  consistency with good numbers  


    Round 4.  Andre Williams   RB  Boston College   


    Round 5.  McCullers  DT  Tenn  (can't resist at this point and BB likes to double down on positional needs)


    Round 6.  Brown  ILB  Louisville 


    Round 6.  Janis  WR  Saginaw Valley - Div11 receptions leader with speed, athleticism and size at 6'3" 220


    Round 7.  Rodgers  TE  Cal  (another local boy and BB double down at TE)

    Good questions... IDK... I can tell you that he hasn't been mentioned much and not sure why.  Looked at some more of his tape this AM... long kid, generally plays hard (appears gassed at times), can set the edge, active in pursuit and makes plays down the LOS.  Doesn't look overly explosive or dynamic off the edge and I didn't see much of him playing in a 2-point stance and/or in space, but there is a lot to like.

    I think Martin, CFJ, Williams, McCullers, Brown Janis and Rodgers are realistic where you have them.  To your comment, I think CJF is the player that's most commonly mocked to NE, and for good reason, ha.


    On the other side, they'd have to give up a heck of a lot more than that to move up to #12.


    I also think Garoppolo is gone inside the Top 40/50... and doesn't make it out of Rd 2 at the very least.

    Yeah he certainly looks the part, but when I watch him I'm not impressed, plus didn't he do basically nothing prior to last season? I've read that he played harder do to the payday the draft will offer, now if so he certainly wouldn't be the first guy to do that, or necessarily be a bust...but too me he just seems to be an average player in a Super Hero body.


    With this guy it looks like there will be some serious "projecting" going on...how will he project with more this, or more that? How will he look in a couple of years? How will he perform with better coaching? With better players around him? Those are tough questions to answer - and I hate players like that - guys that look like him when they put their hand in the dirt (all pro builds), but don't play like it. 


    I think if you are talking him as a fourth rounder, then sure, but higher than that and I would of liked to of seen better play out of him.

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

    Kareem Martin tested at Clowney levels at the combine which makes me think that his lack of burst during the season was possibly due to undisclosed injury. The reason I think that it isn't an effort/motivation issue is because he was a team captain. If he was a lazy worker, why would the coaches bestow that honor on him? He had 20+ TFL and 11.5 sacks so productivity wasn't a huge issue. It is possible that the coaches just overused him ala Jones/Nink and he tired out.

    Seems like the weaknesses that he has can be fixed with coaching and practice. He has the natural size, ability, and ethic IMO. He has emerged as a binky for me at a position that really needs addressing.

    What are yours?


     






    Though it's obvious you can't stand Lyerla , it appears you would kill someone to get McKinnon but he would be redundant as they already have Edelman and Boyce and Amendola and Orton and Dunn all of whom play the slot! So don't hold your breath waiting for your wet dream to don a Patriots uniform.

    Then why did you reference him as the next Edelman? The only logical comparison would be the next Danny Woodhead. Yeah I don't like using the Genius label and prefer the Bozo then no one gets their panties in a bunch when I critic their opinions.

    In response to Archer1's comment:


    Kareem Martin tested at Clowney levels at the combine which makes me think that his lack of burst during the season was possibly due to undisclosed injury. The reason I think that it isn't an effort/motivation issue is because he was a team captain. If he was a lazy worker, why would the coaches bestow that honor on him? He had 20+ TFL and 11.5 sacks so productivity wasn't a huge issue. It is possible that the coaches just overused him ala Jones/Nink and he tired out. 





    Not making an evaluation on whether he's good or not... just answering your question on why coaches might make him cap if he has effort/motivation issue.


    Not just in sports, sometimes, talented people who underachieve are assigned more responsibility in the hope that the bigger challenge forces the person to step up. It does not always work, but I have seen times when it did.
