Default Patriots mock draft 03/15

Put your own mock draft for the pats if you want and give me some feedback about the pick or the trades. I did the trade to get the players I would want if I was Belichik and I try to make them possible.

At first, the Patriots swap picks in round 1-2 with the Saints. #7 and 63 for #10 and 41. NO has to go before Baltimore to select Mckelvin.

1st round:
# 10: Our two biggest needs are LB and CB, but since there isn’t any DB worthy of this pick, we take Keith Rivers. Thomas and Vrabel are true OLB while Seau and Bruschi are aging, so we must take Rivers and play him at ILB. He has had a great career at USC and was dominant at the senior bowl all week long. He’s a leader on the field who plays with intensity and is respected for his off the field conduct. For me the only cornerback, I could consider taking him is Dominique Rogers Cromartie, but he’s too much unproven to take him that high.

Just before Carolina, the Patriots trade their 2009 1st round pick and their 2nd round pick of 2008 (#41) for the 15th pick of the draft from Detroit and their 5th round pick.

#15: With this pick they pull the trigger on Dominique Rogers Cromartie, a prototypical cornerback who’s got everything you look for, speed, leaping ability and hands with a lot of potential. Cornerback is a big need and DRC is a great risk to take considering the facts that the depth of next year draft isn’t considered really good.

3rd round:
#67: With the raiders pick at 68, we could draft Michigan linebacker Shawn Crable, he’s still raw but could develop into a great OLB in the Backerhood with his great mix of speed and size.

#94: Dre Moore is the right pick if he’s still available. He could play DE or NT in our scheme and even if he’s a risky pick, depth is always needed here.

4th round:
#126: If he’s still available Brad Cottam is a big and fast TE who could really help in the running game and in the red zone.

5th round:
#142: Justin Forsett, the successor of Kevin Faulk, a typical 3rd down guy who’s small but shifty and built stronger than we might think. He has a good week at the Senior bowl. Other possibility is CB Antwaun Molden who's also big and fast.

#158: OT Barry Richardson could be a steal if we draft him there and developed him. He’s got athleticism and size that you look for but he’s not consistent and need to be train. He has really good potential and could replace Kascur at RT who is really the weakest point of our OL at short term while improving and taking LT spot later. Kind of what San Francisco did with Staley this year.

6th round:
CB from Missouri, Darnell Terrell, 6-2 and 4,45 speed, we must take a chance with him, he’s raw and wasn’t really productive but has great potential and we need depth at DB. Terrell could play CB or be moved at S.

7th round:
Time to take a chance, CB Brian Witherspoon from Stillman, he hasn’t been invited to the combine and he’s really small but he’s fast really fast. He played for a small school but has good production and he has a lot of potential.

I dont know if BB would value DRC high enough to trade away a future first round pick, which the organization values very highly. Also, I'm not so sure how exactly he fits into the system, combine that with the number of zone type corners available in rds 2-3 and I don't see the trade happening. Other than that it seems to be a fairly solid mock.

Ya usually the Pats go the other way. They trade their first round pick for the next year (Like last year). I would rather trade #7 to Dallas for their two first rounders and take DRC and someone like Groves.

I doubt DRC will be available at #22 though.

your right on this one, i see that one of these corners would fall to the #22 slot and if one of them isnt available, they might pull the trigger on reggie smith who can play both corner and safety, which the pats LOVE
