I think Austen Lane compares favorably with Barwin as a prospect, and coming from a Division II school has a similar kind of "out of nowhere" feel to him. But I don't expect the level of emotional attachment/aversion that Barwin generated.

Or how about this year's Beatty? You remember him, don't you? the OT we just had to have, the one that we passed on at 23 and 26 and 34 and 40 and 41. You remember him, the OT that was driving folks people crazy when we didn't trade up for him for another 15 picks. Oh, how Belichick lost it.
But Belichick was the genious! Everyone had passed on Beatty, almost everyone twice and he was still there at 58! And then the hopes of the board were dashed when Belichick made a huge, huge reach for an OT named Vollmer.
I do not see a tweener type that fits the Barwin mold, but I see a kid, T Lang, down at Troy that would make an excellent developmental pass rusher/ST demon if BB wants to take a chance on developing a young kid.
He needs more sand in the pants to anchor and set the edge against the run, but as a 3-4 pass rusher, he has oodles of potentail, depending on how he runs.
Right now, I love Tate and Wootton. Unfortunately, Wootton has Top 12 written all over him. Tate also seems unlikely because I don't see the Pats using a 1st on a WR and I don't see him getting past WR-needy and Weis involved KC at the beginning of Rd 2. And if we pick another TE in the first, I'll, I'll...drink heavily until I rationalize it somehow.
