This today from Chad Reuter at CBSsports (partnering with NFLdraftscout):
NFL Draft - CBSSports.com Football
Interesting Pats picks:
23 - Aaron Maybin, DE/OLB
34 - James Laurinaitis, ILB
47 - Alphonso Smith, CB
58 - Rashad Johnson, S
89 - Shonn Greene, RB
97 - Andy Levitre, OG
None of them are horrible picks and it's not a bad draft. In fact, it's refreshing to see something a little different. But there seem to be better values:
23 - Connor Barwin (going 33 to Detroit)
33 - Alex Mack (going 36 to Cleveland) or William Beatty (going 4 to Green Bay). Some will love the Laurinaitis pick, but I just don't see him fitting our need for an SILB next to Mayo
47 - Alphonso Smith is solid value here, but with S being a bigger need I wouldn't pass on Louis Delmas (55 to Atlanta) or Patrick Chung (56 to Baltimore); Jarron Gilbert goes 52 to the Jets, d*mn them.
58 - Eric Wood (63 to Arizona), William Moore (69 to Dallas) and James Casey (73 to Green Bay) seem like better options to me
I partly posted this because it's yet another "professional" mock with Barwin going earlier than 34. Maybin vs. Barwin isn't close for me. Matthews goes 37 to Seattle, English 46 to Houston, and Sintim 56 to Miami.
Thanks to BOR for setting me straight on the hyperlinks.
