#48 (from SD) Rashaad Johnson - S - Alabama
#56 Fenuki Tupou - OT - Oregon To raw of a prospect. I don't believe he's an upgrade over any of the OTs on the Patriots.
#88 Mike Mickens - CB - Cincinnati Mickens is going to be off the board long before the 3rd round.
#97 (comp pick) Jarron Gilbert - DT - SD State Where do you picture him fitting into the Pats line-up? He's 20 lbs lighter than any of the other DEs that the Pats have. And he's not a good NT project.. .
#120: Bear Pascoe - TE - Fresno State I like this pick cause it fits into the Pats philosophy
If Mickens fell to the 3rd round, it would be because of a huge red flag.. And then the Pats would probably shy away from him.. The rest of the draft, other then Johnson and Pascoe doesn't seem to really fit the Patriots.
