    Our QB for the future??

    If Locker falls to 33 then we have to take him???? If you guys dont like it then say so...dont send B.S. After this year we will need to get serious...thats why if LOCKER is at 33 do we take him???? IM ASKING NOT TELLING. Do we take him...

    No, that pick is gold. It will be traded, Locker IMO cannot function in this O.  The kid is not consistently accurate.  He also makes bad decisions in big time spots.

    There's a reason why they only kept one backup QB, they like who they have and have full confidence he can turn into a starter if TB goes down.  Locker to me would be a waste of a pick.

    No I don't think so. Most agree the strongest positions in the draft this year are the pass rushing front 7 and the OL. Oddly enough that happens to be the Pats biggest needs. I think they will complete the D rebuild and shore up the OL before thinking about 3 years down the road. Don't worry there will be another Locker type next year either in the late 1st or late 2nd we could grab and train for a couple years.

    Besides if you think about it what would you rather have a new QB walking into; a team with a well established OL and a top D in the league or having the 3 years of bench experience and a weaker OL and maybe not as dominant D. I'll take the former and give the kid a chance to work out his kinks with a team that can afford a couple mistakes every so often.

    If Locker is available at 33, BB will trade out to the highest bidder.  I think someone will give a 2012 1st and 2nd for #33.

    Target someone horrible -- like Carolina or Cincinnati -- and trade 33 for their #1 next year . . .   watch the chips fall . . .  and presto majesto . . .

    Andrew Luck




    (also . . .  the Powerball numbers on Wednesday will be 6, 14, 17, 35, 48 and 11 )

    More likely the Pats draft a guy like Iowa's Ricky Stanzi in the 4th or North Carolina's T.J. Yates in the 6th.

    Actually I really like this idea. Trade #33 back to Carolina for say #65 and their 1st next year. Carolina might be willing to do it to if they are desperate enough for a QB and there's no guarantee that they will have the #1 pick next year when Luck declares. That would be a steal imo

    Then again Tenn is also looking for a QB. If Locker or Newton is there they might be willing to offer #39 and a 2nd next year. Or if they don't think they will get into the 2nd #28 for #39 and a 1st next year.

    And to those wondering why they'd be willing to pay so much, with Buf, Cinn, and Ari sitting right behind the Pats there is zero chance 1 of the big name QB's makes it through the 1st and then through Buf and Cinn in the 2nd.

    What if you don't get the #1 pick, though?

    what is it with this unending infatuation with locker? he did not have a really good season in 2009 yet kiper ranked him a top 5 pick because of his potential. the argument is that his accuracy will improve with a coach like sark. all 2010, the improvement in accuracy did not happen. yet, until recently, even the gurus think he is a 1st rounder, again because of potential. how much does he have to not meet expectations before people stop hyping up this kid? he seems a nice kid and perhaps smart too. but the only strength he's really demonstrated so far is his ability to scramble.

    in the meantime, a lot of college QBs can scramble too. at least a handful of QBs in the draft are definitely more accurate and have had far more successful careers and some of them can't even break into the second rnd.

    btw while some of the other QBs have not beene xposed to playing nfl style, locker has and has not been successful.

    Yes.

    Everyone picking on the second day of the draft will want that pick to guarantee that they get their man.

    Hopefully one or two QBs fall through the first round and the Pats can bilk a 2012 first rounder out of a terrible team

    By 2012 there should be a rookie wage scale in place for top-10 picks and first rounders.
