  • Draft needs 2011

    So, where do you think the Pats will go position-wise next draft?

    I never say never but I don't think they will take a DB or a QB or a TE in the first two rounds.

    So, that leaves Rb, OL, DL, LB, and maybe WR.

    What do you all think? Any predictions on the first four picks?

  • #2
    lineman and then backers

    I think the best lineman available in the first round, one from each side. Then Linebackers and runningbacks in the second.

    WR--I hope Moss comes back, Welker is good and Tate and or Edelman excel.

      I'd say-

      1. DE
      2. OL
      3. RB
      4. #1 WR
      5. OLB

      We should be set at TE, CB, and S. OLB could be #3 but TBC had a very good year last year and there is a lot of hope for Cunningham, I'd say #'s 3-5 are interchangeable now.

      We really need a 5-tech and there should be a great class for them next year, and we really could use some OL help especially along the interior even if Mankins were to come back which he will probably not. There are some great looking #1 receiver prospects as potential Moss replacements; and it would be tough to pass on a guy like Green, Baldwin, Floyd, or Jones even with young guys like Tate, Edelman, and Price with Welker still around. I love BJGE but we need a big time RB and/or a future replacement for K-Faulk.

      As usual we have a good amount of needs on paper, but it isn't as bad as it looks. I really want a 5-tech early and that is certain, but in my opinion after that it could really go any way.

        1 DE
        2 OLB
        3 OL
        4 RB
        5 WR

        But you can draft the best available player from that group. This should be a deep RB class, so maybe I'd put it below WR... But they need multiple RBs including a Faulk replacement), so that's why I stick it at #4.

            I'd rank our needs:

            OLB
            DE
            OL
            WR
            RB

            Without a decent pass rush our defense will never get off the field. Just look at last night against the Rams. At this point I think that BB might want to draft a DE come april due to his track record, but OLB is just a bigger need imo.

              I personally feel that 5 tech is starting to go down the list of priorities. I get having Seymour, Wilfork and Warren two years was great and all but realistically now we can be more than competitive with Warren(next year when healthy), Wilfork and a rotation of G Warren, Wright, Brace, Pryor etc. The two biggest needs for me are OLB and interior O line.

              However come next year if we have the chance to take one of the top WRs or Ryan Williams etc I'd say go for it. But assuming both firsts are between 15-32 then I would go Von Miller/Jack Crawford etc and Mike Pouncey, Rodney Hudson etc.

              It is probably way too early to project where players will go, however unless a real value player not at either of the two positions is available, I think BB should go with these positions

              1. OLB
              2. OG/C
              3. RB
              4. DE
              5. WR
              6. OT

                We need a #1 WR but we do NOT need WR depth, so if AJ Green or Jon Baldwin or those kinds of guys are not available, then it becomes a non-need at all.

                3 of our first 4 picks need to be invested into a RB, DE, and OLB. The OLB group is just garbage beyond TBC. The DE group is Ty Warren and a bunch of band-aids. And outside of Kevin Faulk on 3rd down, our RB core is among the worst in the NFL. They simply can not churn yardage when we need it. It's so bad they wanted to move Julian Edelman to RB but for whatever reason, he didn't work out.

                I think then we need a T/G to play either RT, RG, or maybe LT. I'm fairly happy with Dan Connolly at LG so far. Maybe Logan Mankins comes back when the two sides cool down from the war and Connolly can be moved to RG. Maybe Kaczur can still play RG next year. All I know is that the OL needs to get younger because Neal is considering retirement, Light can't play RT and is going to struggle against great pass rushers at LT, Koppen gets hurt, and so on.

                If Christian Ponder drops into the second round like Jimmy Clausen did (which I doubt he will), I wouldn't be entirely shocked if the Patriots take him. Brady looks great right now, but he's 33 and had a serious knee injury. He might not play to 36. Hoyer has looked good though.

                  I think the lines will be addressed. M. Pouncey in this upcoming draft is a name I think we should be aware of around draft time for the Pats.

                  Thanks to BoneKrusher for this amazing sig!

                    How about 2 O lineman, a RB, and a WR with the first four picks. The offense would be set for a while.

                      Omg I would run over kittens with a lawn mower if this happened. If we dont come out of the first two rounds without at least an OLB or DE I'm going to lose patience with our draft strategy.

                          I've bolded the names of the players I think BB would consider drafting. Robert Quinn would play OLB for us, and probably the players that I want the most next year a long with AJ Green.

                            Marcell Dareus (DE-Alabama) should be on that list.

                              The lists look right, and I'm sure we'll all be clamoring for an OLB again next year (which we won't get.)

                              I think G/C will be the most important need. OLB will be second.

                              DE / WR will both depend largely on how our young talent does this year. If Brace looks like he did against the Rams going forward (or even near that level, consistently) and one of those other guys looks like good depth (Pryor, Deadrick, etc.) then we may be ok there.

                              Similar story at WR with the young guys plus the status of Moss, though I think another young WR with #1 potential should be brought in either way.
