I've done this the past few years so with McCourty being shown off already, might as well get it started again. I will update further when mini-camp starts on Thursday.

Just don't give out #80, and I didn't want #11 out either.

I may have to invest in a 55 Spikes jersey, but if Mankins is gone, I may have to get an authentic Vollmer jersey to replace the authentic Mankins one.

This Fletcher kid tested incredibly well.

03/21/2010 - PRO DAY RESULTS: One of the pre-draft season's intriguing aspects is how some small-school standouts can gain more national recognition, and make their way up the board. Montana State DE/LB Dane Fletcher is just such a player. One of the all-time sack leaders in the Big Sky conference will get a lot of attention between now and the draft, and a lot of teams are going to be looking at him as a possible outside linebacker in the 3-4 defensive scheme. At Montana State's pro day, he ran a 4.61 and 4.63 in the 40-yard dash, had a 36-inch vertical jump, a 9-foot, 3-inch broad jump, a 4.35-second short shuttle, a 6.93-second three-cone drill and did 29 bench press repetitions at 225 pounds. The Bobcats' pro day took place March 16 outdoors on FieldTurf with no wind at all in front of a Seahawks scout. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com
He's 6'2 250.

46, that's interesting for Hernandez. Hopefully Price is more than just speed like the last #17 WR we took.

They said they anticipate more number changes, so those two could be the ones.

96 for Cunningham I love it

FlyingElvis
04-30-2010, 08:17 AM
96 is pretty funny. I will lmao if he keeps that into the season.


Gotta love a small school kid like Fletcher. He's obviously got the speed rush down. I wonder if he has anything else?

ElectricEye
04-30-2010, 09:27 AM
lol@ 96.

Pretty good numbers. Kind of like 46 for Hernadez, he's probably going to be more of an H-Back for us anyway.

Spikes really seems like the real deal as a football player/team guy.

Fletcher is moving to inside linebacker. If any of the UDFA make the team, I think he has the best shot with the poor depth we have at linebacker.

He should transition well. Dropped back at Florida, from what I've read.

I almost feel bad for Pat Paschall since he's the only RB there and is getting all of Ivan Fears attention (love that name btw). What do you think about the rookies' performance this weekend? Personally, I don't pay much attention to their on-field action, since the work in the meeting room is much more important at this stage imo. But I just had to share this in case you haven't read it.
Elsewhere this afternoon, at one point in the session, the entire team gathered to take whacks at the one-man tackling sled. A lot of players are big and strong enough to lift that thing off the ground, but TE Rob Gronkowski nearly flipped the thing over on one of his reps. That caught everyone’s attention on and around the practice field. Quite an impressive display of power.


All the reports I've read says that the Gronk and Hernandez looked very good. I really hope they will make an impact next season.

Oh God... that picture of Belichick's shorts is embarrassing.

Oh, and is anyone surprised that Brandon Spikes looks faster than his 5.0 40 time suggested? or that his aggressive play is causing him to whiff tackles? :/

Cunningham practiced exclusively at OLB standing up yesterday.

Yeah, he's only an OLB. He doesn't have the size for DE (5-technique). I doubt he has the agility to play ILB.

Pats signed WR Buddy Farnham Brown:

http://i40.tinypic.com/j8mec6.jpg

I just found this on youtube, there are some other videos from his games as well.
EtoV_qKGjM8&feature=related

He seems to be very good at changing direction, have good hands and good acceleration. His game tape (which I've only seen on youtube) looks pretty good as well, although it's not against very good competition. I have no idea if we have room for him on the roster, but he does have some pretty good return skills which might land him a roster spot.
