    With a name like Stankiewitch. He has to be good

    Any info on this guy? That's all the depth I see listed for C.

    ya see, this is where my pet peeves with the PAts come up. Wendell is solid, not great. He is a free agent after this year.

     

    IMO his talent is that he is a perfect swingman between OC and OG. Connolly and Mankins on the wrong side of 30.

    With the 91 pick, the Pats select Harmon. He could turn into a player. He may have been a reach. Time will tell. But the Pats invested (wrongly as I have stated numerous times) in Gregory. They have invested a #2 in TWilson. They have invested (wrongly IMO due to age) in AWilson. Yet at 107 Schwenke is sitting there, and at 113 Jones is sitting there. Either one of them might be able to start over Wendell THIS YEAR, and worse case NEXT YEAR be ready to start.

    Of course he is. Might be another steal in time for the PAts...same as Wendell. But Pats may need a C that is ready to play this year or next. I dont think Stankiewitch will be ready that quickly. For sure he will be on the PS and be groomed...OB recommended him, which I assume carries a lot of weight with BB

    I was one of the camp that thought we should have taken Konz when we took Wilson. Center is a weakness on the O line, depth wise it has been. IMO. I wonder how many positions along the line Stankiewitch can play. He must have some experience to be taken.

    Tough crowd - Wendell graded out pretty well this year and the line as a whole graded very well. Connoly is the back-up C and was signed instead of Koppen (who was a pro bowler I believe) as a center because at the time we still expected Waters back at RG. McDonald also played well at Center as a fill in.

    And do your really believe after 15 years together if Scar thought he needed some bodies for the OLine BB would have blown him off? And specifically if he saw some guy that he thought was a slam dunk who was falling he wouldn't have been slamming the table advocating for him. They already brought in a FA tackle, have Zusevics coming of really just his first year, and there is Cannon who everyone but the Pats seems to want at Guard. And I think at the moment they have 4 OLine UDFAs.

    And just a thought - with 9 OLine taken in the first round instead of the average of 4 to 5 maybe this wasn't an exceptionally talented group, but an exceptionally desperate group of teams? And with another 7 taken before pick 90 maybe that particular cupboard was stripped bare in terms of the Pats board grades.

    As an aside - I know pick #91 was a complete waste of space and this is the Pats board, but Dallas used a first round pick #31 on a center that could have been taken at the end of the second round. Talk about wasted draft capital!

    Sorry - one other thought - in the cut down of rosters there are a ton of OLine players that get cut. It is not unusual for the Pats to cut quite a few and just about every year one or two are immediately snapped up, and a surprising number stick with the new teams and some start. And it is not unusual for the Pats to grab a few for the PS themselves.

    This just doesn't worry me that much.

    Don't agree. We;ve been hearing our Center is a weakness since Koppen, but it's just not true.  Connolly was just cheaper than Koppen as is Wendell. In fact, they've loved how Wendell has come along.

     

    Hate to bring it up, but don't you think it's ironic that the shortest point to the QB is really down the middle, and somehow our great O Line (ranked top 5 literally every year) only appears to underperform when Brady throws 40+ times and 60+% out of the shotgwith un?

    I don't. Not a coincidence.  There is way too much evidence for it now.

    Teams basically cheat in a sense that they sell out on an  interior pass rush, ignore our run game and just mix up how they rush down the middle. It's what Jim Johnson did to us with his Philly team at the end of 2007, and then everyone copied it, with Spagnuolo's group doing it the best with the best front 7 to do it.

    Baltimore almost pulled it off late in the year, too.

    That was 2007 and we're still pretending our shotgun spread addiction isn't the real issue here?

     

     



    When we could have drafted konz we used the pick on Wilson I believe. At the time center was not an area of depth. I think koppen was dinged up nd McDonald helped with the load. McDonald stung when he left IMO   With mankins and a bunch of others coming up for contract it wouldn't surprise me to see BB double ip in next years draft on the O Line.
