    Laurinaitis ILB would be there. At least he's in the neighborhood for now.

    I don't talk about trading Cassel until it happens. It will tell a lot of things. If he isn't traded that means Brady will not be ready to go. If he is traded, to who? Who ever wants him will dictate where the draft pick will be. Not some guess whether it be to KC or SF and such. And would it be for a #1 this year or a #1 at all? The Cassel thing is wide open.

    The only problem I see here, USH, is that BB is not getting fair value for the two firsts; he moves up and only nets a 4th round pick 2010. For two firsts you get a shot at Aaron Curry (the best LB in this draft ?) or at least he should. I'd rather the Pats brass keep the two firsts and use one of their 2nds to move up with say the Minni pick to grab Mauluaga. I still think the best trade scenario if they want Mauluaga is to trade Cassel to SF for the 10th overall. Denver will be attracted to any offer that involves getting multiple picks because they have no one that can play D.

    Hogrulz,

    Ok even better...but I'm not sure BB will want to move up any further than 10 because it becomes cost prohibitive and Maualuga seems to be more of a pure ILB than Curry anyways, who projects to go even lower than 10.

    And I definitely agree that Denver will want multiple picks in the first round to rebuild their non-existent D.

    What's the deal with Tank Williams this time around?

    I think Maybin is an exciting player but his weight is an issue at 236 lbs he is going to have to gain weight to play stand up OLB or DE

    one thing i think could increase his stock is his ability to play a OLB/DE/SS role similar to AD's role with the Ravens two years back

    if he can stop the run, drop back and recognize coverages he could be the replacement for a Tank WIlliams like project and it would allow the patriots to play a 3-5 like defense on first and second down

    this would be extremely exciting for our defense because it would allow us to Blitz more with our LBs and ends... it would also provide similar trickery that the Ravens simulate... and that same trickery often develops into turnovers and INTs for Reed in our case Meriwheather

    i really think we need to get more exotic with our defense, to prevail against the pass and create turnovers which will all ultimatley create a fear that will resinate with our competition

    i read on Scout.com that he is 236... 250 could easily be his weight at the combine or his weight from pre season, but 236 may in fact be his playing weight...

    5. Aaron Maybin, DE, Penn State
    6'4", 236 pounds... 12 sacks as SO
    - "Project Mayhem" is only this low because he's raw and lacks experience. He's also an outstanding athlete with burst, but he's got some growing up to do. Given time, a good situation and some solid coaching, he'll be the best end to emerge from this draft class.

    This is why the highest the Pats would go is 10th overall. I think Curry would be good at OLB or ILB (he played both in college), however I don't think the Pats are about to trade with anyone that's in the top 8 including KC, St. Louis or Detroit. Either way, I hope the Cassel situation is resolved by draft time.

    I am liking English more and more. If Sintim has been taken the Pats might grab him. I've seen mocks where the Pats get Jenkins, I can't see that happening because it seems he would be gone by #23. I acutually think the PATS 2nd and 3rd round picks are more interesting based on who could be available.

    I'd really like to hear that Cassel would be excited to play for SF, Min, Detroit, Tampa, WAS, and any other potentially interested team, so that an all out bidding war can run its natural course.

    If the Pats say that they want to help accomodate Matt, and Matt only likes a team or two, that would greatly hamper the Patriots trade negotiations. Especially if Matt threatened to stay with the Pats as backup if he didn't get traded to a specific team.

    At this point I'd be happy with a straight up trade for SF's #10. Maualuga would be the perfect compliment to Mayo, they would have a ready-made nickname (M&M), and the strength of the linebacking core would soften the blow if and when Wilfork or Seymour are lost to free agency.

    Drafting a DE to play OLB has some serious risks, and I'd rather have the LB position addressed before the 23rd pick.

    [Quote]Scout.com tracks their weight out of highschool.

    He weighs in at like 245 for games, and probably wants it to hit 250 before the draft. 236 is probably a listed weight from some time ago.[/Quote]

    Z, i'm pretty sure 236 was Maybin's weight at the start of this season. JoePa has openly complained about Maybin not being able to put on much weight and there's even a Facebook group down here at Penn State (started by his teammates) that jokingly states its purpose is to help him fight annorexia. He's a freakish 2% body fat. lol

    Aside from that, I can't see BB taking him because he is SOO raw. BB took Mayo because he was able to make an IMMEDIATE impact...I don't see him spending a 1st round pick on something as risky as a project player...prime example: Vernon Gholston. remember him? lol

    I agree...if I could get Maualuga straight up for Cassel I'm pulling the hell out of that trigger. I think a lot of folks are assuming that Cassel is going to be in high demand...which doesn't necessarily seem to be the case because there are only a handfull of teams that need to address starting QB and at least a couple will address that through the draft. That means we're really only looking at a couple teams and if we franchise Cassel and get stuck with him we're pretty cap fu.cked...which means that we don't have as much leverage as we might if Cassel wasn't tagged.

    Therefore I don't think Belichick is going to try to squeeze maximum value out of Cassel, but rather get what he can because getting anything is better than getting stuck with that cap hit or the nothing we would've got had we not
    franchised him (assuming we do).

    If our first 4 picks were Maualuga, Alphonso Smith, Pat Chung and Derrick Williams I'd be pumped....but I'm mostly likely dreaming.

    Nice dream ush,
    Smith and Chung could very well end up Patriots, Mauluga will require a trade up, and if it happens then u bet we can get him. Im not sure on Williams, looks like a high 2nd rounder to me. Maybe Devin Moore, RB, Wyoming, could be our version of Chris Johnson.

    Actually Scratch the Moore pick, I say we pick local boy Donald Brown out of UConn, TD machine and a decent pass catcher (21 receptions) take him with our 2nd rd pick

    One possibility that i see for the pats is Nic Harris, he is a strong saftey/linebacker and can be had for a 3rd or 4th round pick
