    You would think late rounders would be rather eager to sign just about anything.

    What's the story on this kid. All I know is he's a 6'8" monster. Has anyone out there seen this kid play? If so, let's hear it.

    If he starts its at right tackle not left. no way he beats out Matt Light in his first year as a pro.

    Thanks Harley. One sack allowed in 610 attempts. I don't care which conference you play in, that's quite a stat.

    I'll be watching sea bass very closely in the pre-season. With all the contracts up at the end of the season some one will have to step up. Signing and drafting a versatile player like Edelman also a smart move. Tate, as previously stated, will start on the PUP, but has huge upside both as return man and eventually #3 or 4 receiver. NOW LET"S SIGN CHUNG AND BRACE!

    Jbolted- that also is pretty good, not going to lie. One must also take in to consideration that Vollomer really never played a down of football until college, so he is still raw, and if that is raw, well I really want to see refined.

    I expect nothing out of this week except a bunch of rookies all signing, with no holdouts for the Patriots.

    This year I expect little enough out of Chung, Butler and Vollmer.  They all need at least a year before they can tie their shoes.  Brace might start pushing and grunting in September, as part of the rotation.  Brandon Tate might break through after he gets off of the PUP list in late October.  Edelman is a tough young wild card, but really he's a seventh rounder who can't play quarterback in his first year.  Edelman and Butler might return kickoffs.  Every other rookie has no chance of making a splash, not this year.

    Excellent hopefully Chung and Brace will sign within the next few weeks. Been a great week so far for rookie signings.

    I believe that this guy is going to be huge...no pun intended.  Obviously, he just needs to learn the league, etc...  Perhaps, he's another Mankins, so to speak?  Methinks.

    Here's the current Rotoworld write up on Vollmer. Awesome if he can be future LT and play for a decade.

    Patriots signed rookie OT Sebastian Vollmer, the No. 58 overall pick, to a four-year contract.
    More proof that the Pats will keep their throw-heavy approach for a long time, Vollmer projects as a superb pass protector once he develops. He played in a pass-first spread at Houston, and the converted tight end possesses ideal athleticism. He could replace Matt Light at left tackle by 2011.

     If Vollmer is 'coached up', could be an excellent find for the Pats.

    Whoever said that Sea Bass had not played a down of football till college is way wrong! I dont know hwo you missed this as they have been talking about him in depth for weeks now but the guy won two high school championships in Germany before he went on to Houston to play ball. He deffently played football before college. The knock on him is that he didnt start playing till he was 14 years old but that just mean he didnt play pee wee football it has ntohing to do with his high school game or his college game. This kid will be a beast. I know its crazy early but with his size and talent and teh coaches around him I think he has Hall of Fame LT writen all over him but I am getting ahead of myself he has not even played a game yet.

    My bad, but German high school football is probably not comparable to US HS football especially the better teams, also he was a TE until he got to college, then played on the line, and being a TE is different from an OT so he would still have had a learning curve. There is a reason that scouts were calling him raw
