    The media (and my eyes from late season) has me believing we'll see a bunch more Taylor Price. But don't be shocked if we see more of both Tate & Price and a bit less of Branch.
    I hope to see Price emerge since he looked really good in that Miami game, and I was really impressed by the way he ran slants and hooks, unfortunately we didn't get a preview of what we really need him to be able to run which is deep posts, corners, and go routes.

    Crumpler isn't getting bumped by the rookie. Smith has Practice Squad written all over him.
    I could potentially see Lee Smith beating out Crumpler for a roster spot only because we've seen Belichick release an older blocking TE before to keep a space open for a younger guy when he released Kyle Brady. If Lee Smith seems hungrier and is in better shape coming into camp than Crumpler I could see him taking his spot because most of what Crumpler did was inline blocking which I think a rookie could handle.

    Spikes, and it's not even close. He was very impressive last year.
    He was, but I couldn't help noticing Dane Fletcher playing very well. I know he's an undrafted type guy, but he might have more upside than Spikes, or it's just my inner desire to have a Tedy Bruschi type on our defense again talking.


    I'm going to take the long shot and say Dowling over Bodden. I would love to see Bodden come back strong and studly, but his history is that of an inconsistent and oft injure CB.
    I think Bodden will hold onto his spot. He's always done pretty well in man schemes, and his injury last year was a rotator cuff one so I don't see that hindering his long term prospects. However, if he does fall to #3 He could be a surprise cut since he makes close to 6 million per year.

    Safety will be the same as ever - rotation, rotation, rotation. I still see Meri as the best of the bunch but he's got to stop missing big when he misses. Of course, his off-field nonsense may impact that.
    I'm hoping the RFA rules stay in place and we retain Page. He played more and more at the end of last year, and he has experience playing at a high level in the NFL. Furthermore he's young and has size which isn't something to overlook. I'd be fine if they had a platoon of him and Sanders, and tell Meriweather to hit the road. Since they traded a 5th round pick for him and placed a high tender on him I'd expect he is in their long term plans.

    • A bit of sad news for Patriots fans. Tom Martinez, personal QB coach for Tom Brady, has been given 1 month to live by doctors.

      This is obviously terrible for his family. It's going to be tough for lots of people. I think it's going to negatively impact Tom (especially when you consider a month or two is the start of the season ... if there is one). He's been a huge part of Brady's career and has been there for him when he needed it.

            • I could be there, possibly. Currently on the waiting list for season tickets!

              ....the season tickets are years away. But the waiting list thing gives you the ability to buy tickets to pretty much every game at a fairly decent okish price.

                  My uncle has been a season ticket holder forever, he also has some friends that are ST holder who live in a different state that sell their tickets 6 games of the year. I have decent access to tickets, sometimes its tough.

                  • Here's a beautiful piece of info I just found out. In 2008 the Patriots traded the 7th overall pick and the 164th pick to the New Orleans Saints for the 10th and 78th picks.

                    With the 7th pick the Saints took DT Sedrick Ellis while the Pats took Jerod Mayo with the 10th. Id say both sides are more than happy with that arrangement.

                    With the 164th pick the Saints took Carl Nicks who is now one of the top OGs in the NFL. With the 78th pick the Patriots took that all world player OLB Shawn Crable.

                    Looking back through previous drafts is depressing :(

                      Just look at last year's. That is what I do to turn that frown upside down.

                      • The negatives always stick out more than the positives.
                        So I rarely like looking back at who we wiffed at...
                        But like ^^^ said... just look at last year's class. All smiles.

                        • Thought it was pretty cool the players voted Brady number one. Havent had alot of discussion around here so I figured I'd just throw that in here.

                            Cool that Brady was voted 1. TBH, though, that list had some seriously questionable picks on it. McNabb stands out as the biggest.

                            • Yea, McNabb was but he was 100 though.
                              I was really surprised Brady was 1. I assumed he'd be two to that other QB.
                              I obviously think he's #1 but the patriot hate is ridiculous.

                              • McNabb doesn't belong top 300.

                                And Brady was clearly #1. You'd have to be the blindest homer to believe otherwise.

                                I was shocked Vick and (Aaron) Rodgers were so low.
