You know, I don't want him. If you remember draft chatter, I predicted he would stink in the NFL back then, and it looks rioght now like I was right. You see, he has the kind of sloppy size that is ok in the NCAA, but wears thin in the NFL. Plus he costs a fortune, which would mean that NE would essentially be giving a draft pick up to sign a too small NT/Undertackle for more than they would have to give Wilfork, who they would then need to forget about signing under the cap.
I think the smoke on Bowe, another Tiger, is interesting. Although I think waiting it out would be wise, as an other LSU wideout is coming out this year, and could be in range for Ne in the person of Brandon LaFell. I like LSU wideouts in general because they have a history of drafting hearty kids, and because those guys don't play in the spread like most other college Wides, AND they run into some pretty sophisticated Zone defenses that can be seen at Bama, Tennesse, Florida and a few others including LSU itself.
Someone brought up Crayton, who wouldn't be a terrible pick up. All told, though, I am not sold on BB grabbing anyone at a skill position, simply because he has made comments a few times about how they are essentially useless because they have missed all the practices and don't know the playbook.
IF ne is in the hunt . . . I hope it is for a 3rd wide reciever. And not roscoe Parrish, who is not a viable 3rd wide.
