    Maybe I missed something (a trade or 2 from years past?) but as far as I know N.E. only has one pick in the 3rd - now 2 w/the addition of the comp pick.


    Still, 6 picks in the top 100. Pretty exciting, right? :D

        The Pats are gonna have some firepower to shore up that defense. They need pass rushers in the worst way, and a whole new secondary outside of Merriweather.


        They could use a future LT too.


        The thing is, don't expect all those rookies to make an impact right away. Bellichick hates playing rookies.

          There is no position that needs an immediate starter. Plenty that could use an upgrade, but any draftee will have time to develop.

          Wheatley & Wilhite came along ok before Wheatley's injury. With Hobbs, Springs & Bodden NE has 5 average or better CBs. The secondary is not that big a need . . . S would be nice, though.

            i thought CB was a big weakness for you guys last year. although the lack of pass rush probably had a lot to do with it.

            from your post, im guessing youre high on Crable and don't view pass rusher as a big need?

            i see pass rusher followed by CB as your biggest needs as an outsider to the team.

              I still think we need a safety pretty bad, but ya, CB would be more of a developmental pick at this point (barring the inevitable injuries one or more of our CB's always suffer).

                Tully-Banta Cain, Crable, Thomas (although he could move inside), Vince Redd, and Pierre Woods are all outside already. I am not a big fan of TBC, but Thomas is a beast off the edge (was until he got hurt), and I really like Crable, who is just as much of an unknown as any rookie we were to draft. An upgrade could definitely be used though, I agree.

                  what about this talk about a safety? no faith in merriweather? i liked him a lot coming out.


                  i thought sanders was solid too.

                    I think they mean that they need a compliment to Meriweather. Probably a SS.

                      Ya, Meriweather is gonna be a stud, he improved dramatically last year and was our best DB. Sanders is ok, better served as a backup, situational guy.

                      Meriweather can play FS or SS, so I would be open to drafting any safety, but I would prefer to have Meriweather at FS.

                        OLB (pass rusher) and S are the two biggest needs. Merriweather is a stud and Sanders is ok. I agree w/BigBurt - Merriweather at FS and say . . . William Moore at SS . . . :D

                        Last year the CB spot was the biggest weakness, but with 2 draft picks last year that both ended up injured coming back this year + the addition of Springs & Bodden that should be a strength now. If nothing else it buys NE a season to let Wilhite & Wheatley develop further while hoping Bodden returns to his prior form.

                        CB is debatable. I don't think it should be a priority in this draft, but there is not a consensus on that among NE fans. Overall the Pats really have the ability to pick any position if they like the player @ a given value. Which is why it's so exciting this year.



                        Until draft day when they pass on guys I want and pick someone else. ;)

                          Thats huge for the Pats, we need some youth and talent at a lot of positions and we are in good shape with all these picks.

                            it must be frustrating in a way being a Pats fan and a draftnik. bc you have all these players in mind, and the Pats almost never take them. they always do their own thing on draft day and take people you would never expect.

                            it works though, so more power to em.

                              Yeah, it is really hard to determine who we are going to take so I just hope for the best and trust the staff. Taking Mankins at 32 a few years back was a big "wtf?" pick but it turned out very well to say the least. I could see it happening again this year, we have obvious holes at multiple positions on defense but we could very well take a lineman in the first round. Last year I was actually suprised when we picked Mayo because it was a huge need but we usually never take true MLBs, all of our starters have usually been converted DEs. I was thrilled when we took him and he has been a stud.

                                It can be frustrating. My Michigan homerism made it tough when NE didn't take Woodley.

                                But I learned early in the BB era that they know what they're doing. The year they took Seymour I was really hoping the pick would be David Terrell. ;)
