     Running back and DB are rather obvious.

    Re: Where is the Room for all these draft pics?

    I think there is room for improvement and depth at OL and DL, as well as OLB.  Great CBs are always welcome also - we do have Bodden next season however and he's pretty good (our best CB).  I hope the Pats draft a top Tackle for the OL and then get some more big bodies for the pass rush.  If they fill those needs with trades - that's fine with me.  I've heard that next years free agent class is supposed to good also.  Future looks very bright with the kids now and the draft picks they have for the future.

    we'll probably only draft 7 or 8 guys judging from BB's propensity to trade on draft day. Out of a 53 man Roster we could probably replace one guy from every position right now except QB. Plenty of space.

    Always fun to predict B.B.'s draft decisions....Its like trying to win the mass lottery.  I just dont see him A.) using both 1's this year, or B.)  Using them to trade up for a top 5 player.  Most likely will be moved until 2012.  But isnt the world gonna end in 2012?  Dont we have to use them all this year?  What happens if there is no football for a year...Do you draft next year with twice the amount of pics, or do we still have a draft?  Wow, I'm like a curious 5 year old today....lol Best case scenario for us to move up, is if there is an absolute STUD OLB/DE that requires a top 5 pick and he is the peice that gets us over the hump in regards to pass rush.  I think you draft a back no higher than the 3rd and go after a M.Bush type in free agency....I would also like to see us get a free agent WR.  Remember we still have Price, a 3rd rounder who probably wont play this year. So unless a Calvin Johnson is available, I think you draft a WR late.

    Like Most Pats fans I already have one eye on the draft. It's like the superbowl in April. I'm still rooting against the Raiders but that AFC West sukkks pretty bad this year so they could be looking at 7 or 8 wins when all is said and done.

    Draft the best available players and if they are good enough to beat out a starter than so be it.  Than let BB pick the most talented players for the 53-man squad.  A team can never have too much talent.  Every job is open to competition, and a talented draft pick will, at the very least, push the veteran to get better or lose his job.  And in some instances, i.e. Gronkoski and Hernandez, hastening the departure of Benjamin Watson and Chris Baker. 

    With perhaps the exception of Brady, and maybe Wilfork, every other player could conceivably be pushed for their starting position. 

    BB, time in and time out, has shown that he will play that
    individual that gives the team the best shot at winning.  I seem to recall a 6th round draft choice replacing a franchise QB.

    So, I for one am not terribly concerned about where draft picks might fit in next season.  Can you only imagine how good a team the PATS would be if 2, 3, or 4 rookies were to displace veterans and become starters next season.
      Albeit, such rookies would have to be extraordinary talents.

    But it certainly makes for an interesting dilemma.  I suspect every GM in the league is envious of the draft position quandry that faces the PATS.

    The Aztec calendar is now being discredited so yes, they predicted the world would end but it won't be as soon as 2012. Apparently, people had been misinterpreting their calendar...

    Re: Where is the Room for all these draft pics?

    From the current 53 man Roster the following should go

    Gone no excuses
    Neal - will retire with a new ring
    Morris - will retire with a ring
    Taylor - needs to retire with his ring

    Should be gone
    Quinn Ojinnka -
    Terrence Wheatley - how mant more chances ...
    Rich Ohrnberger - hasn't been good enough really
    Alge Crumpler - age is getting up there
    Logan Mankin - wants out
    Gerrad Warren - age facter
    Matt Light - time to give Seabass the keys to the left side
    Johnathon Wilhite - rubbish really

    Back from IR to 53 man roster
    Ty Warren
    Leigh Bodden

    Looks like 7 -8 picks will make the team and several free agent Vets and walk ons will be brought in for competition

    [QUOTE]

    It's an intriguing post, 76, so kudos. I think there will definitely be room for 2 first and 2 second rounders. After the first two rounds (and often before), the draft is really a crap shoot: you can get a Curtis Martin or an Ellis Hobbs in the 3rd round; you can get an Aaron Hernandez or a Rich Ohrnberger in the 4th. And there's simply no accounting for a Laurence Maroney in the 1st or a Julian Edelman in the 7th...sometimes you role 7's and sometimes you roll snake-eyes.

    I will say this, though. No one loves competition in camp more than BB, because he doesn't give a flying eff about your draft position, only your ability to produce. Thus, I expect GREAT competition for roster spots next year, so if the rooks can't cut it...too bad...

    It's a wonderful problem to have.

    Hoyle I agree with everyone you said should be gone except one. Crumpler is a blocking machine and he was brought in to mentor gronk and Hernandez. He is also a team leader. Keep him and let him play a lesser role  next season

    This is definitely a good problem to have. With all these picks, Belichick can target any player and get him if he chooses.

    bellicheck will keep trading down and eventually we will draft John Edward Thomas Moynahanin the first round of the 2029 draft and Benjamin Rein Brady in the 2032 draft

    Re: Where is the Room for all these draft pics?

    all 5 RB's are free agents (not sure about woodhead actually but he is the only one sure to be back). taylor and morris are gone for sure. faulk will probably retire. BJGE is always on the bubble. light, koppen, and neal are all near the end and we dont have good options to replace them. mankins is gone. our OLB depth is a joke, with cunningham the only true 3 down player. the rest are all bubble players at best (maybe not nink). ILB is set. d line is tough to gauge, it seems like we have decent depth if you add in ty warren, but we need a seymour type impact player on the right side. as for the secondary, i would hate to use yet another high pick there, but as we see this year you can never have enough depth.
    bottom line is that its always good to have young players pushing vets, even young vets. there is plenty of room on this team for improvement and i hope it happens not only in the draft this coming offseason but also in terms of good solid veterans.

    Re: Where is the Room for all these draft pics?

    A second or third rounder will be used to move into 2012 if there is a CBA agreement in place for the 2011 season.

    We need a Pass Rushing OLB (Oakland)and OT/Center (Pats pick) in the first round. So depending on the Raiders position the Pats could stay put or move down 1 or 2 (ala Mayo) to take an OLB. With the Pats pick they could move up/down or stay put to grab Pouncey.

    WR is supoose to be really good next year for the tall strong Moss type, so the Pats may look for one in the 2nd. Same for RB, but most likley pick up a vet as there will be many available to be part of the committee... Most likely an OG here if they keep both picks.

    I would see them keeping both Warren's and taking a DE in the 3rd round and look for a CB/S.

    4th round OLB

    5th and 6th rounds DE/OL and CB.

    Re: Where is the Room for all these draft pics?

    My 2 cents on the matter.
    On Defense
    For the DL if they don't use the Oakland pick on a DL they shouldn't even bother down the road.  The roster is full of later round guys that are doing a great job right now.  However, one could always use a stud.  Ty Warren coming back from surgery will maybe be his old dominating self again which is huge.
    OLB - A need for sure.  Probably another DE conversion.  Kerrigan of Purdue and Romeus of Pitt are examples that could be available later in the draft.  Bailey is in about the area of Oaklands projected pick.
    CB - I think everyone can agree that outside of Bodden and McCourty this thing is in trouble.  The problem is with Oakland playing better the high end CB is not going to be there.  Later in the first round there's Dowling of Virginia and Williams of Texas.
    S - Sanders is a capable back up to Merriweather and Chung.  I don't see a need here.

    Offense
    OL - Light has games like he did in SD from time to time.  Contract friendly and a Belichick fave.  I don't know if he goes anywhere.  The Pats need a backup OT anyway regardless of Light's future.  Nate Solder is in my cross hairs with the Pats first pick.  We have tons of guards.  If Light is sent packing the Pats will need two OTs.  Kaczur should have been a guard all along.  At center we have over achieving Koppen.  It would be nice to pick up a bigger center to handle those NTs the Pats are seeing more of these days.
    RB - Like to see John Clay of Wisconsin here.  Very early 3rd rounder?
    WR - I think we're set here.  Just fill in with some FAs. 

    I believe this shows that there is no problem in seeing where we could use another full draft and that there is definitely room for all these picks.

    Re: Where is the Room for all these draft pics?

    Too many picks in th 1st four rounds is a problem every other team would love to have. The Raiders pick looks to be in 12-18  range, but the Carolina pick will be nearly a late first. I almost wish we dealt Mankins for a 2nd to some team that's in the middle of the pack.
