Draft Day(s) Thread
 
Opinion on our picks.... trade downs.... and guys on the board we really want. Draft rumors, all of the kind...


Want all of this in one thread so we can keep organized ;)

So it really looks like we're in for both an exciting night and a disappointing one(as always). Can't wait until we all sit in this thread talking "HERE COMES THE TRADE GUYS!" and then it never happens :(

proshoota25 04-28-2011 01:21 PM

haha heres to hoping for robert quinn.... but a trade would be a nice change of pace

ElectricEye 04-28-2011 01:24 PM

If that's the case, we REALLY feel strongly about Quinn....and that's probably a good sign.

Nice to talk with you guys too, I've missed you all.

Maybe since Bill Parcells doesn't work for Miami anymore, we can ask him who the best rush linebacker is in the draft. he seems to know something about them.

ElectricEye 04-28-2011 02:51 PM

His draft special was fantastic stuff.

ElectricEye 04-28-2011 04:12 PM

NFL Network sources(which are usually good) are reporting that we "absolutely will not" trade up to either #9 or #6. No word on #10 yet, but I think we can reasonable assume that's likely grouped in there too. I'm not buying it at this point either way yet. I don't think there's any way to be sure either way until it either happens or doesn't with this team. Something that big would never leak without some kind of objective behind it getting out there.

I've been saying this for a while. People have been mocking Quinn top 12 all spring based on that great one year he had. But he has so many serious question marks that it won't surprise me at all if he doesn't go until some time in the twenties.

ElectricEye 04-28-2011 06:02 PM

That would certainly play into our favor.

....we'll pass on him anyway.

hes def worth the risk at that point in my opinion

TNPatsFan 04-28-2011 06:03 PM

This draft is just so weak there are only three guys that will go top 10 that I really would even be interested in for the Pats.. and two of those are WR's. I almost hope they trade back from 17 because other than Kerrigan there isn't a single guy that will be available in the 10 to 20 range that I really would be excited to get.

Kerrigan and Heyward are probably the two guys I like most and I don't expect the Pats to take either one.

There are guys in the 25 to 50 range that I like better than most of the top 20 guys.

BB is on NFLN right now. Denied everything.

Just a fountain of information isnt he?

I'm thinking they'll sit tight and get a good DE at #17 and then trade the 28th pick to someone desperate for a QB.

ElectricEye 04-28-2011 06:14 PM

If that's the way it breaks, I'm more than happy with that. Tennessee's on again off again Mallet crush could really work to our advantage if he falls.

TNPatsFan 04-28-2011 06:15 PM

The rumor now is 17 and 60 to Dallas to move up for Jordan, and also making the same offer to Minnesota. While i don't think they should trade up for Jordan, this move would at least still leave them with 28 and 33 and they could regain a pick or two by moving one or both of those back.

ElectricEye 04-28-2011 06:17 PM

I'm on board with it. Completely. Jordan is a dynamic player and just the kind of talent we need to add to a front seven that's starving for upside.

Jay 04-28-2011 06:24 PM

17/60 for 9 or 12 in a heartbeat. I want any of the beastly pass rushers, namely Jordan. I am really hoping for a mad run on QB's early, too. The more QB's that go in the first the merrier.

TNPatsFan 04-28-2011 06:30 PM

If the Pats were to trade up to 9 or 12 I'd actually rather they took Prince or Julio if they were somehow available than a guy like Jordan. You can probably get him later than 12 and even if you can't there are several very comparable players you can get at 17 or 28.

ElectricEye 04-28-2011 06:35 PM

Disagree with that entirely. There's good players, but no one anywhere near as dynamic. We love versatility and Jordan oozes it.

i think for or 5 qb's will be gone by 28.
I'd be more then happy if we could get pouncey/jordan at # 17. I do see Quinn falling out of the top 10 unless someone moves up to get him.

Are you guys watching on nfln or espn?

ESPN................

Draft hasn't even started yet and I'm already sick of the Cam-Newton-a-thon that is going on. Both channels that's all they have talked about for the last hour. Hope he goes first so we can move on from the Cam fest (fingers crossed).

TNPatsFan 04-28-2011 07:15 PM

I was hoping Denver would take Dareus so Buff would take Miller. Von Miller doesn't scare me nearly as much as Dareus does if I'm the Pats and I have to play him twice a year.
