Solder and Cannon are great picks.
Agree. Two great players that are beasts with a lot of upside.
Vereen is a very good RB. I didn't think the Pats had a shot at him because of the way I had the draft going. If there is any excitement in this draft this is it
I've been worrying about replacing Faulk for years. He does a whole lot more for our offense than most give him credit for. Danny alleviated some of that, but I have my concerns about him. Vereen is a much better fit to do so IMHO and I'm really happy about this pick.
Mallett. Personally I'm very cool to this choice but where are all those "get Brady's replacement" guys? There was a lot of this going on and none of them appear to have been excited about Mallett who comes into an excellent situation. Powerful, powerful arm and very accurate. Sadly, he must be put on turd watch.
We replaced Bledsoe with Brady. Now we may ultimately replace Brady with Bledsoe. Or someone who very much reminds me of him. Big guy, laser cannon arm, rattled easily under pressure. I'm very happy with this pick and think a couple years holding Brady's clipboard will do wonders for this kid.
Ras-I. I'm cool on this pick too. We have Bodden coming back and McCourty. I didn't understand this pick. I was hoping for Brooks Reed.
I'm very happy with this pick. A little nervous about his durability, but there's a ton of upside here and he would have gone mid 1st round had it not been for missing most of last year. The days of needing 2 solid corners are gone. Now you need 3. Great round out for our secondary with Boddens return allowing us to put in some very unique cover packages.
Stevan Ridley. Didn't get this pick at all. Seems one dimensional.
Morris/Taylor replacement. We needed a ground pounder and we got one. No flash here but it fills a void.
Lee Smith is a sound pick. Hernandez is not a blocking type TE and Crumpler may be gone after this year. Close to retirement for him?
Excellent pick here. BB LOVES his blocking TE's and we have a doozy here that should not only ultimately replace Crumpler but also gives us a nice pair of hands too.
Markell Carter. A lot of talk was going on about this guy. Very big tool guy but is not strong and most of his negatives point to that along with the competition faced. Bulking up and some coaching will help this kid. Nice choice here
One of those practice squad picks that keeps things interesting in camp for the OLB's and could actually be groomed into something. He has potential.
Don't know much about the DB from TCU. Special teams or bust.

Big guy with potential at both safety and corner who is a bit of a workout warrior as he lit things up at the combine. Raw though, needs grooming and lots of it. Should make for a solid ST player in the interim.
