    ***My Final Mock***

    GO PATS!

    Below is my final Patriots’ mock (including options in Rd’s 4-6 where they don’t currently have picks) assuming they draft at their assigned slots.  We all know that Belichick will likely trade up and down throughout the draft:


    Rd 1- DT Jesse Williams (6-3 320)- Alabama:   I haven't moved off of this pick in a long, long time... I just think his size, power, versatility, pedigree and upside makes too much sense if he's available.  Alternatives: CB DJ Hayden – DE Tank Carradine -– S Jon Cyprien - DL- Datone Jones- WR DeAndre Hopkins


    Rd 2- WR  Stedman Bailey (5-10 193)- WVU:  As underrated a kid as there is in this class, IMO.  He looks like a complete WR to me:  Very good route runner, seperates consistently, excellent hands and ball skills, good quicks/RAC ability, competitive, can play on the outside, productive, good effort as a blocker, playmaker.  Alternatives:   - DT- John Hankins -  CB Darius Slay - CB - Johnthan Banks  - WR- Keenan Allen  - WR-Markus Wheaton -


    Rd 3- CB Logan Ryan (5-11 192)- Rutgers:  Good size corner with adequate speed and excellent COD, he’s also a physical kid that tackles well (something BB puts a ton of value in) and is an effective blitzer off the edge.  Alternatives:  - S-Shamarko Thomas - CB/S- Sanders Commings - S Josh Evans- WR- Ryan Swope - LB Kiko Alonso


    Rd 7- S Cooper Taylor (6-5 228)- Richmond:  A huge, physical safety prospect, that plays  good speed and COD for a tall player… he’s also a smart kid on and off the field and could give BB that hybrid S/LB type player to help combat today’s big/athletic NFL TE’s.  Alternative:  DE/OLB- Joe Kruger- DL- Kapron Lewis-Moore - DL- Quinton Dial - S- Orhian Johnson – RB Chris Thompson


    Rd 7-WR Sam McGuffie (5-10 200)- Rice:   Elite combo of speed/quicks/COD/athleticism, he’s also relatively new to the WR position and looks like the kind of kid that BB targets with his Rd 7 picks.  Alternatives:  RB- Spencer Ware - TE- Michael Williams - WR- TJ Moe- OL- Tanner Hawkinson- QB- Sean Renfree

    ***Rd 4-6 Options***

    CB- Kayvon Webster (could also be a Rd 3 sleeper option)

    CB- Tyrann Mathieu

    S- Keelan Johnson

    DE/OLB- Lavar Edwards

    DE/OLB- Devin Taylor

    DE/OLB- Michael Buchanan

    DE/OLB- David Bass

    ILB- AJ Klein

    DT- Josh Boyd 

    DT- Abry Jones

    DT- Chris Jones

    WR/PR- Ace Sanders

    WR- Chris Harper

    WR- Josh Boyce

    TE- Levine Toilolo

    TE- Nick Kasa

    OL- Jeff Baca

    If BB comes away with something resembling that it would appear to be quite a draft.  If BB stays in the first round (never a guarantee) I hope Williams is still available at 29.

    Re: ***My Final Mock***

    My final one:

    Rd 1- DE/DT Margus Hunt (6-8 275): This guy is just to much upside for BB to turn down. Not only is he full of potential but he is a special teams demon (17 career blocked kicks). Add 10-15 pounds and he's a 43 run stopping DE that can move inside to DT in passing downs. The better part is during the senior bowl he got great comments on his coachability and how quickly he grasped NFL concepts


    Rd 2A- CB Jamar Taylor  (5-11 192):  I don't know how they will get this 2nd whether through a Mallett trade or another trade but I have a feeling they will get into the early 2nd for this kid. He's been linked to the Pats a lot and he's the typical BB type of CB. A senior who's very smart and can stay with his man. Very coachable and has great maturity


    Rd 2B- WR Marcus Wheaton  (5-11 183):  Typical Pats WR, great YAC, excellent route runner, can play slot or X WR, and has a high football intelligence. He also had a very strong senior bowl and BB seems to have a fancy for senior bowl stand outs


    Rd 3- WR Da'Rick Rogers (6-2 192):  They double dip at WR this year and take a fringe 1st round talent who's fallen because of failed drug test. In the late 3rd this seems like the Pats range to take this kind of chance. Rogers also fits BB's MO placing in the top 5 in the combine in the 20yrd, 60yrd, and 3 cone. He also is an excellent run blocker and doesn't mind going across the middle


    Rd 7- S Cooper Taylor (6-5 228)- Richmond:  A huge, physical safety prospect, that plays  good speed and COD for a tall player… he’s also a smart kid on and off the field and could give BB that hybrid S/LB type player to help combat today’s big/athletic NFL TE’s.  (I like how MB put this)


    Rd 7-QB Jeff Tuel (6-3 225):   Tuel would have been a top 5 QB in this draft if not for injury plagued 11' campaign followed by platooning as Washington planned for life without him. Technically he's sound and he has a high completion % (kind of sound like someone we know?)
