Gilbert is a guy that can be had at #60 or 74 and doesn't need to be drafted high. So that allows us to fill needs with our first 3 picks, and still get a starting RT and have VOllmer at LT, and be set for awhile.
Jordan may be going out of the Pats range, but Mike Mayock the best analyst around still has him going mid-late 1st even during practices. Obviously it's more top 10-20 but he still may slide to Pats you never know. Even if he doesn't. Robert Quinn -- Muhammed Wilkerson at #17 and #28 would be great.
Technically sound, looks bad anchoring is the word from Scott and Shane. That does sort of cross him off our wish list. The rule I personally set for a center is to only draft one if we're absolutely sure they're an upgrade over Koppen.
But yeah, I really hope the Patriots change their tune and take a look at Reed. He's going to be taken by a team that values athletic pass rushers much more and be an absolute stud though.
"Texas A&M LB Von Miller looks like the real deal in any scheme. He’s 6-2 ½, 237 right now but should be able to get over 250. He’s by far the best player here and I’m sure Bill Belichick could find a way to make use of his great pass rush. From what I’m hearing, the Patriots learned a little bit by passing on Matthews, who didn’t quite fit what they were looking for at the time. They’d probably be more willing to take a physical risk this year."
I would not be surprised at all to see us take Von Miller. He flat out knows how to get to the QB and our pass rush is the most pathetic thing I've ever seen, he may not be a typical Patriots OLB but he is an outstanding pass rusher and playmaker and that is what we need.
