    When it comes to free agency, I don't think we can ask for more than a pass rushing specialist. Babin, Ball, Jenkins, Charles Johnson, perhaps McBride.

    Didn't the Jets get a lot of 'coverage sacks' in the playoff game? I seem to remember Brady having time to throw but not being able to find open receivers. Why can't Pats?

    Brady was spooked in the playoff game and did a bit of weaving and bobbing thinking there was pressure when there wasnt any. the worst pocket pressence as a patriot.

    sure there was no strong running game to stop and the OL did not perform well, but Brady had time and open receivers if he was settled in the pocket.

    As long as Vereen is a is not a douchebagger like Faulk then the team will be ok.

    I like the fact we now have 4 YOUNG complimentary backs that can balance the offense and help take time of the clock and hopefully help protect brady.

    Having 4 RBs will be useful when we need to score 70 points to win a game in 2011 due to having the worst pass rush in the NFL (again). I'm sure Manning and Rothlisberger appreciate it too, they like to have a good 30 seconds to relax in the pocket on every pass.  So yeah, great picks!  I'm looking forward to more RBs and DBs in the 2012 draft, maybe a few more projects, tweeners, and guys that even Mel Kiper has never heard of.

    If you do not have a RB that puts at elast some fear in the D they can commit to coverage. The Pats did not have that running game when they needed it. That doesn't lay the primary blame on the running game but it is a piece of it.

    Neither Edwards, nor (especially) Kiwanuka, are likely to be interested in standing up, and neither of them would be good as 3-4 ends.

    Then Edwards would be a rare exception because most Purdue DEs make the switch to OLB at the next level.

    Edwards wouldn't be exceptional for taking a deal with a team that lets him keep playing 43end over a deal in which he has to stand and play linebacker. The majority of small DE's want nothing to do with switching positions -- regardless of how well or poorly they might make the transition.

    Re: An interesting Vereen comparison

    On draft day I compared this kid to LT/Marshall Faulk and said he had Barry Sanders like balance and strength... sorry, nothing original there.

    This kid can be an every down back, if you don't think so, find me another running back (or linebacker for that matter) on our roster who can press 225 pounds 31 times...

    As for free agent OLB's, remember that Mike Vrabel was a back up for the Steelers who's only resume was a lot of special team's tackles when we signed him... again with 3 monster D tackles in front of of them in a true 3/4, linebackers, safeties and corners can create pressure much easier.  Players will become available...

    I agree. Bill should just turn the draft reins over to Mel Kyper Jr. 

    Cause if Mel aint heard of em, or Mel dont like em, they s#ck!

    In Response to Re: An interesting Vereen comparison : Jets fans told me that JOnathan Vilma, Bryan Thomas and Vernon Gholston are all better than Vrable because Vrable only went to 1 Pro Bowl. lol

    Vrabel played inside, outside and tight end... tell them Vrabel has more TD catches than any of those fools.
