    Boy...there are a lot of insightful people on this board which makes it fun to read. I hope we go with another LB or a CB in the first round. We need the ability to leave a CB in single coverage on a WR so BB can work some of his great defensive schemes. The situation with our CB's last year made us have to play with a lot of safety help over the top and didn't allow us to mix things up when rushing the passer. I really hope Rodney makes it back for one more season so he and Merriweather can lay the wood on some people! I look forward to hearing more comments here on the draft.

    Yeah, where is Faucetman this year? Nice post about Crable. Hopefully he gets his technique down. Being so high cut, he has his work cut out for him.

    The more I look at all the draft prospects, the more I wonder about trading down to the top of the second round, if it would mean picking up a very high 3rd as well.

    I know we have tons of picks, but we could then trade back up, so we'd end up drafting three of the first 14 picks of the second round. Pick up a CB, LB, and OL who all garnered first round consideration.

    zbellino,

    I was hoping Rodney's mentoring of Merriweather would help to ensure our future success at the Safety position. Merriweather can hit and did a lot of work in the offseason to get better with his hands. I really feel Rodney has 1 good year left but should not be expected to play 1 on 1 coverage as in the past...Dallas Clarke comes to mind. We will see.

    Great posting indeed. I been all over the web today and did'nt see anything close.
    How come the longer I don't see Maualuga play the less I love him? I'm not saying I would take a pass on him but we could go other routes.
    Maybe Guyton( because he was'nt playing because of injury)
    Maybe Vrabel goes back inside.
    Someone else besides me mentioned Zach Thomas which I can see. He said he would not be back in Dallas and was playing in 09'.
    I'm thinking more of who's there for us Alphonso Smith, DJ Moore or replace J.Sanders

    As for Meriweather put on the 20lbs to use the shoulder blows to force fumbles and wrap-up low sometimes to save some for when you mean it.

    zb,
    I agree totally.� Next year is also a good draft year for OL so I think it would depend on who is there at #32 whether we take a DT or a OL first.� Signing Wilfork is going to be key.� Seymour is gone after 2009 maybe sooner if he doesn't have a solid year this year.
    I also agree with TE and RB as Faulk is really getting up there.� We might be okay at SS depending on which of these new guys shows promise there.�






    What's so special about faucetman?

    Faucetman and 53men contributed alot in last years draft thread. Last thing I remembered Faucetman posting was he owned his own business and was really busy with work. That's my guess!

    Thank goodness for this thread because most of the other threads are full of trolls and their continued nonsense each and every day. Oh well f*ck'em.

    I can see Z. Thomas signing with the Pats after what he went through in Dallas. After visiting NE last year he knows what to expect and all that good stuff. The only thing for me is what kind contract would he be looking for? The Pats need depth at ILB and IMO Izzo(Special team guy anyways) and Alexander won't be brought back. So that leaves them with Mayo, Bruschi, Guyton, and Ruud on the inside. I'm not sure what to expect from Ruud because of injury and we all know this will be Bruschi's last year.

    What's everyones opinion on Jasper Brinkley and where do you see him coming off the board? 3rd, 4th or 5th round?

    If Rodney does retire do the Pats draft Nic Harris and try to clone him like they tried doing with Tank Williams S/LB?

    Nic Harris has been mentioned as a good option several times. Is he enough of a genius for BB to consider him?

    Buzzcal...welcome to the board...I checked your site and it looked pro, but I'm too much of a junkie to need your site to tell me when my teams play. I got that on lock well in advance...lol. I suppose others are busier and less addicted than I am though. Good luck with it!!

    Yeah last year 53men was all over this board with some good opinionated input (he was adamant we shouldn't take Ellis or Dorsey and he was right) and this year I guess we're not paying him enough...lol. Sorry 53...budget's tight this year, not a lot of cap room to work with. And of course we miss the Faucetman too. Plenty of us to keep it going though!

    I'd like to see us get a TE that can catch a football in this draft. Ben Watson has gotten worse and worse...to the point I'm yelling at Cassel if he even threw him the ball anywhere but wide open in the end zone (cuz then he can't fumble).

    What's the deal with BB not wanting to play D. Thomas at least in passing situations? The guy has great hands...and the penalty in Indy seemed like a case of not hearing the whistle. BB cost us that game in my opinion by calling that TO when we had the 1st @ the Indy 5. Gaffney didn't help either, but that would've been forgotten had we finished that drive and with a 1st down @ the 5 it was looking pretty good. Oh well.

    Percy Harvin may be the best available player @ #23...I know everyone's thinking D, but if you're just basing the pick on value...I gotta feeling that kid is this year's Chris Johnson in terms of having an instant impact as an offensive playmaker.

    BuzzCal, just checked out your website and I think that's a great idea. Celtics are on at 7 tonight and if the superbowl blows I know what I'll be watching!

    Ush, as far as TE go a couple of guys have mentioned James Casey TE 6'4'' 235 lbs Rice. He's a little older for a prospect because he played minor league baseball before attending Rice. Sounds like a BB kind of guy played RB, QB, and TE throughout his career and he's smart to boot. Here's his bio.

    I would like the Harris pick. I think he's got alot of up-side and don't care to switch pos. to get into the game.

    Not to sure how to guage Harvin. Is he a Reggie Bush. No one saw Chris Johnson or Desean Jackson as great picks at the time.

    We must get a TE this year that is ready to go. freshkick looks like he's found a WINNER. How's this kid not the talk of the draft at TE? Casey's second team Academic All American honors,Carries a 3.84 GPA with a triple major, and 2nd in the nation with 104 catches,5th in the nation with 1,217 receiving yards.WOW!! Don't understand D. Thomas not cracking the line up myself.

    I believe James Casey to be a mid to late 2nd rounder. I like the idea of Nic Harris for the 3rd round pick.

    I'm not big on the Cassel trade thing but one thing to concider is most teams try to hold on to their draft pick for this year and sell off their first pick for the next year.

    Vrabel's 10yrd up field looping pass rush the last two years has been hard to watch. good impact spot.Maybe one of the kids or a rookie takes over for him. I'm still interested in Crable.

    From what I've read Sintim isn't the fastest guy or the best in space. I'd rather take a gamble on Maybin, who is adding weight and is lightning quick. Maybe we'll learn more at the combine.

    No problem BuzzCal and I will if anything comes up.

    Chris Johnson had one of the sickest highlight reels on YouTube coming out of college. He was projected as a 2nd round pick and well we know he went in round 1 to the Titans. One knock on him that I remember reading was he had neck problems in college, but it looks like he's past that now. I would of loved seeing him in a Pats uniform, oh well!

    If Vontae Davis is still on the board at #23 do the take him or pass on him?

    ohyes,

    I'm sorry you had a tough time watching Vrabel accumulate 12.5 sacks in 2007 and make the All-Pro team. Yes, he had a down year rushing the passer in 2008, but he played all year with a pretty substantial shoulder injury, and should bounce back to produce more sacks in 2009.

    Alot of those came in the Skins game or late on come back attempts.

    You recall the Skins/Pats score pyegian?

    Not saying he can't still play. Just not as effective at rushing. Hard to wacth from a stand point that age and injury is not his friend.I thought we were talking draft. Not defend your guy.
