    wow another OL this is Ridiculous 





    Gotta protect the franchise... TB was sacked (40) times in 2013... the most since 2001 (41).

    I love it.  I thought OL, especially interior OL, was this team's biggest need.  Now they've brought in 2 320+lb interior linemen.

    BB seems to have moved away from the smaller, quicker OL in favor of size and nasty.


    None of the kids drafted fit the general profile, with slower 3C/SS times.

    If all you need is a backup, grab one on the FA wire. 


     


    A mid round LBer is not going to help you out in all likelihood. Let's be real about draft and the possibility of a player contributing. 


     


    Just grab some UDFAs, grab a vet off the wire. Done. 


     


    I'm pretty happy with Collins, Mayo, and Hightower. Oh, and Nink can play linebacker too.

    Little late for that. They had that chance and looked at a couple different options and decided not to go with them. If you don't think a mid round will help do you honestly believe a UDFA will? I know we love UDFA's around here but Z you have to get serious, a 4th rounder hasa much better shot at being a Fletcher legit #4 LB type than a FA or any LB they pick up via FA this time of year.


    All these years have brain washed people to believing the Pats can get good FA's this late into the game or UDFA's can make a difference. How often has that been the case? Heck, I remember people falling all over themselves over the UDFA's two years ago... guess how many are currently on the team

    Love this pick of Halapio. Our OL is going to be a stacked for quite awhile. A lot of competition going forward. May the best man win.

    Cant believe the last 1st Round WR who won multiple Superbowls with the SAME team was Micheal Irvin.

    Halapio tied for lowest-vertical jump among OL at the NFL Combine. 21-1.5 inches. Pats liked fact he's well-grounded.


     


    Hahaha!

    I find it interesting that the NFL is trending toward smaller, faster D-Linemen and the Patriots are beefing up on the O-Line. Maybe they think they can exploit these size matchups. Doesn't bother me at all as this O-Line wasn't that great last year.

    Not sure what they see in that G. Looks like he's going to need a lot of work. The best part of his game is he plays through injury. This might be one where I think BB will regret the pick over taking Exum

    Pats seem to be drafting to win the conference championship game with big guys...guess we really know where the Pats think they need the most to win...The eye tesy always win...we should thank "Pork Chop" Knighton.

    I had flashbacks to the AFCCG as well when seeing these picks... seemingly out with the smaller, quicker interior players and in with more size, power and nasty.  Keep the pocket from collapsing on the interior and Brady is a much better player, as Polian mentioned.

    Didn't even know Concordia-St Paul existed but the kid is huge at 6'6 270 pounds.  I'll take a pick like that in the 6th round

    Well there's our DE. No Lynch or Sam but this guy was one of the best pass rushers in DII. Still though, not dominant at his level, however has a daughter so gives him drive to stay in the league

    Pats had a pre-draft PW with him... don't know much about him outside of his scouting report... which talks about his size, athleticism, versatility, flexibility, effort, experience (3 year starter) and character.  And you have to love the size/lenght.


    Gonna have to research this one.
