Forget about Gresham, harley; he's staying in college. He'd have been a top 5 pick anyhow;

[Quote]I think Mays isn't nearly as highly rated as some people here think either. IT doesn't matter because he is going back. He is the most physically gifted Safety, but I have watched a lotof him and I don't think he had th nose for the ball that other safeties out there have.
I could be wrong, but most of the USC defense seems built around hype to me.[/Quote]
Agreed. USC would be tested if they were in the Big 12 or the SEC. Would you rather play Cal or Ole Miss ?
posted at 1/17/2009 5:02 PM ESTCB Alphonso Smith an intriguing pick, he's got good speed & he can make the catches for interceptions. At 5'9 190lbs the question is can he cover the tall receivers at the next level. He should be available later then some of the other top CB's.
S Moore of Missouri could also be a solid pick although injuries have been a problem for him in college. Will be healthy at the next level?

Here's a recap of the 1st day Senior Bowl practice. Thoughts?
Rey Maualuga/LB/USC: Maualuga looked rusty today, both physically and mentally. He's not in the best of shape and was very hesitant to make decisions on the field. Maualuga seemed to get his bearings as the day proceeded, but his play was not reminiscent of a potential top-five pick.
Just out of curiousity do any of you guys on the board think the Pats may try to scoop up Lito Sheppard this off-season?
Eagles CB Lito Sheppard reiterated Monday that he wants out of Philadelphia this offseason.
Sheppard requested a trade last year. He mailed it in when he didn't get one, losing his nickel back job to special teamer Joselio Hanson. Lito's stock is at a low now and he may not bring back more than a fourth-round pick http://www.rotoworld.com/content/playernews.aspx?sport=NFL

ZB mentioned getting a bargain DB and I think that is more plausible than the big free agent splash. Cassel would have to be traded for a big free agent to be signed. I also think that the PAnthers will want more from NE than just Cassel straight up. People seem to forget that a great DE/OLB (in the 3-4) is very valuable.

posted at 1/20/2009 5:14 PM ESTGenerally agree on the first 4 picks. My only concern is that I really don't feel that the Pats need a running back. I had Patrick CHung at SS in the 2nd, but alot to depends on who falls and who rises. I could see Sintim rising until he is out of the Pats pick range (15-20).

Nice job! I seldom like what folks put down as a whole. I only have one arguement and that is Maloa. I currently have him as a solid 2nd rounder. A late 3rd rounder would be an absolute steal.
I do have to agree with Johnhanna on Sintim. I think his stock will rise to where he will be out of reach. Here's to hoping we're wrong!
posted at 1/20/2009 6:22 PM ESTRick, That would be a great draft as you have it. Depending on Sintim, if he does rise what's everyones thought on Aaron Maybin at #23?
Aaron Maybin, DE/OLB, Penn State
Height: 6-4. Weight: 240.
Projected 40 Time: 4.61.
Projected Round (2009): Top 25 Pick.

posted at 1/21/2009 4:36 AM ESTI've mentioned the DE/OLB player as possible 1st round selection and Maybin would certainly apply there. Could also see a QB taken in the first four depending on what happens with Cassel. TE also possible.
posted at 1/21/2009 5:56 AM ESTAgreed on Maybin, tons of raw talent, but not sure BB would want to spend a 1st rounder on someone who is not only raw and thus developmental at DE (he wasn't he even supposed to start for Penn State this season) but he'd have to learn to play the OLB position as well, something he's never played. I think i remember the commentators saying he's only 2% body fat, so there's no way he'd fit in our system as a DE (too small). Seems like way too much of a risk for the Pats, though I loved watching him play here at Penn State this season. What about Maurice Evans though as a mid-round DE? He was a 1st team Big Ten selection his sophomore season but had a down season this year due to suspensions and rotating with Maybin. He's listed as 6'2", 262, as opposed to Maybin who's 6'4", 236.

posted at 1/21/2009 10:16 AM ESTOne of the few DEs I see as being able to operate as a 3-4 DE is Tyson Jackson. Aside from that their are some OLB/DE types available. I trust BB to pick the one that fits.
posted at 1/22/2009 2:29 PM ESTi like cushing big strong but just ok edge rusher. looks roided out to haha
posted at 1/22/2009 3:59 PM ESTI dont know about the first round but i really like Nic Harris out of Oklahoma, and he fits in the system cause hes that SS/linebacker hybrid that BB likes
posted at 1/22/2009 5:32 PM ESTTo be honest I really don't care for Maybin and I'm just guessing at who may still be on the clock at #23. Also not a fan of Cushing and I'd rather see the Pats draft Matthews in the late 2nd or 3rd round. Matthews plays with a high motor and you just can't teach that to a player, they have to want it.
Something Different Mock Draft
(Not including comp picks)
Rnd 1-Alex Mack C/OL Cal or Sean Smith CB/S(?) Utah
Rnd 2-Louis Delmas S Western Michigan
Rnd 2-Clay Matthews OLB USC
Rnd 3-Derrick Williams WR PSU(imo he won't be around this late, but here's to hoping) or Jasper Brinkley ILB South Carolina
Rnd 4-Connor Barwin TE/DE Cincinnati
Rnd 5-Robert Ayers DE Tennessee or Roy Miller DT Texas
Rnd 6-Gartrell Johnson RB Colorado St.
Rnd 7-Xavier Fulton OL Illinois

posted at 1/22/2009 7:25 PM ESTIn my opinion, unless a Maualuga or Laurinaitis are available (both are sliding on many mock drafts, although I don't believe that this will actually bear out in come draft day) then I would personally rather ther Patriots just trade out of the 1st round for a 2nd rounder this year and a 1st rounder for next year.
I'm not really sold on the talent towards the end of the 1st round filling our greatest needs and feel that having 3 2nd rounders this year would be good value. Plus if Cassel is traded for a 1st rounder, then under this scenario mentioned above that would give us 3 1st rounders for next years' draft.
Think about it, we have do many key free agents after next season that we can't possibly sign them all. Therefore having the extra picks could really help out to ensure that the team doesn't regress.
I think that now is time for the Pats to sit down with Seymour's agent and find out what kind of deal can be work out. If it's economical then great, otherwise I say that we should be proactive and look to trade him either during this offseason or next year after slapping the franchise tag on him a la Cassel.
Wilfork is someone that we absolutely have to sign no matter what!
Matt Light, Cya. Mankins, my gut feeling is that he ends up elsewhere due to his prohibitive cost as the Pats don't normally like to break the bank on O'lineman.
