    Re: UPDATED MOCK DRAFT

    The Browns are just re-couping the losses from bad decisions of the Savage and pre-Savage era. They definitely could use those picks.

    I don't see the Broncos, though, trading for Quinn or at least I wouldn't. At this point, prospects in the third or fourth rounds of this draft are better long term solutions while early round picks would help them add some young depth to build around. They don't need help the Browns out of their mistakes.

    Re: UPDATED MOCK DRAFT

               I really like the crop of players available this year. Theres' lots of quality depth at positions of need for the Pats. But, I don't see them taking 10 or more players. You just know that they'll pull off a trade-down, and acquire picks for next year, somewhere along the line.     

    A successful draft will ensure that the Pats will be SB contenders for the next 3-4 years. A poor draft could finish them.

    You don't know they'll pull off trade downs and you don't know if they do that whether they'll be losing picks in the process for this draft or perhaps gaining them. A trade of 23 could yield a pick at the top of the 2nd round and 3rd round. From there, either or both could be moved for a future pick or even a future pick and a later round pick. Or 23 could just go for a future first and current late 2nd or early 3rd.

    I expect them to be active. Adding a strong draft this year is a huge help going into the future. If the Pats do feel that they need to have a strong draft, though, it makes a heck of a lot more sense to have great quantity of picks now than a few now and more for next season. There are a number of spots up for grabs in this Pats roster, at least 8, and that often grows during the preseason as players join reserve lists.

    Tex I would rather see Jamon Meredith, at #47 and still grab Pat White at #58. I think with Dante coaching up Meredith, he will turn into a Beast. Would hate to see us taking White at #47 and taking a chance of not getting Meredith.

    Re: UPDATED MOCK DRAFT

    Meredith would certainly be a great pick for the Pats at 47 or 58. I don't see too much of a drop off, though, at guard/center a round later. Someone like Antoine Caldwell or Andy Levitre has a good shot at being available at 89 and still be a great fit for the Pats. A player with the diverse skillset of Pat White would not and there certainly is a huge drop off in the front 7 between the second round and the third round.

    Great Mock TexasPat!

    I dont think Maualuga slips that far though and if both him and Jenkins slip, i think BB goes with Jenkins!

    I think realistically #23 will be either English/Butler/Matthews

    #34 - Probablly Barwin but possibly Mayo's ex-teamate Robert Ayers - guy looks good on tape but he might not slip that far

    #43 - Pat White - i just hope he's there!!

    Nice mock, Texas. You always do your homework.

    I think I'd go with an OLB at #23, though. I like Larry English. I see a greater need for a pass rusher than an ILB at this point. Then, if Laurinaitis at still there at #34, we're golden.

    Also, if alphonso smith and pettigrew are still there as 43-45, I'd bet money that BB moves up a few slots to grap one or the other, or even, GASP, both!!

    Imagine a first day haul  of English, Laurinitis, Smith and Pettigrew?? The safety, OL and DL can wait till day 2.

    TEX:
    If Maualuga is there at 16, he's a BOLT. He is a MLB. 
    MLB would complete the puzzle.
    Merriman
    Cooper
    R. M.
    Shaun Phillips
    He is the only inside backer that hits like a mack truck in the draft.
    Knowshon or Rey, period.

    No Olineman at #1, sorry. Maybe #3 though:

    http://www.star-telegram.com/nflinsider/story/1231547.html
    If available at pick 78 in round 3, this guy
    Herman Johnson - who was in SD yesterday - is the one on the right:



    gut says Rey at #1

         Kyle:      Interesting mock draft. But, Josh Freeman at #8, and Jason Smith at #9??
    Posted by TexasPat3


    I'm hearing that a few teams very high on Josh Freeman, 8th or 10th pick high on him. He's the top in terms of size, athleticism, and arm strength amongst the top QBs. I'm also hearing that he's one of the highest rated in terms of character in this draft. Jason Smith is seen by some teams as a top overall type pick. Others though see him as pick that should go around 10. I don't see the Lions moving away from Stafford. Eugene Monroe makes a lot more sense for the Rams in terms of his connections to the team and the low likelihood for him to bust. Seattle is supposedly high on Sanchez. The Browns are probably the toughest to predict, but they'd be best going for the best player remaining if they have to pick. If they don't pick, then some team moving up is likely moving up for Crabtree. Andre Smith is obviously a player the Bengals should like and Maclin to the Raiders.

    Re: UPDATED MOCK DRAFT

    Freeman a month ago was going between 17 and 22. If he's truly rising then his value should be in the 8 to 12 pick range. Teams do stupid things if they see a shot for a franchise QB. There should be a number of teams looking to draft their favorite QB, regardless of guarantees. Freeman should have several fans among teams. The same goes for Stafford. He seems to be the Lions favorite and they aren't getting another shot at QB till the third round if they don't take him.

    Re: UPDATED MOCK DRAFT

        Heres' SI's Don Banks' updated mock draft updated to 4/17...though it doesn't take into account the Jason Peters' trade to Philly for the 28th overall pick. Banks has the Pats taking CB Darius Butler at #23: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2009/writers/don_banks/04/17/mock1/index.html?eref=T1

    "I have it on good authority that Belichick loves Butler and will make him the second cornerback to come off the board. All you need to know is the Pats head coach attended UConn's pro day, and that's not an every-day trip for Mr. Hoodie."

    Something about that kind of certainty makes me doubt this will happen. There were a number of players that the Pats could be looking for from UConn, Beatty, Cody Brown, Donald Brown, and Darius Butler. They're all exactly what the Pats would want at a need position and they're all where the Pats would be selecting in the draft. The Pats could very well come away with 2 or 3 players from Connecticut in this draft.
