#22 - Carlos Dunlap, OLB/DE, Florida
- skillset to become the new McGinest or Vrabel or even kick inside on obvious passing situations
- thought process, potential is out of the world, top 10 talent
#44 - Aaron Hernandez, TE, Florida
- offensive playmaker
- thought process - becomes the lightening to some stiff's thunder at the TE position
#47 - Kareem Jackson, CB, Alabama
- adds a good (not great player) to the secondary
- thought process, might as well have a good secondary for once
#53 -Arthur Jones, DE, Syracuse
- rotational DE
- thought process, have to feed the beast, always a need at DLine
Look to add more competition at LB and a developmental WR in the later rounds. Maybe a player like Hardy drops who could be tapped to replace Jarvis Green.

#22 Derrick Morgan OLB. Can't believe he's rated 34th! This makes our draft.
#44 Demaryius Thomas WR. In the 2nd round, he's worth it, but not in the 1st imo.
#47 Alex Carrington DE. He needs to gain about 15-20 lbs, but he's super quick. How does he do at handling double teams though?
#53 Devin McCourty CB. Rated 99th?? I know... I didn't take a TE, but McCourty vs a tight end?? He's too good to pass up!

Wow. I really question a lot of these rankings. Charles Brown, Roger Saffold, Matt Tennant, Chad Jones, Montario Hardesty, and Anthony McCoy aren't even listed? They may not all be second rounders, but I guarantee you that most of them will go in the top 100. Weird. Anyway, a lot of the guys I like as football players and think are good scheme fits aren't even on the list (cf. half the guys above), so I'm tempted to trade down into the third and fourth and pick up loads of picks. For the sake of the game, I'll play along, but I'm not happy with the rankings.

22. Everson Griffen - best combination of hybrid DE/OLB big-bodied run defender, coverage guy, and pass rusher in the draft. Will make a good strong-side compliment to TBC.
44. Demaryius Thomas - a terrifying downfield threat amazing size/speed and unmatched aggression in going up after the ball. Raw, but scary-talented. Good run after the catch, too, with his strength and nasty disposition. Perfect #3 to compliment Moss, Edelmen, and Tate.
(This is where things get a little sketchy, given the current rankings. Meh.)
47. Arthur Jones - good developmental 34 DE. Only problem is, in the mid-second, I want more than a developmental guy. Sigh . . .
53. Jimmy Graham - good developmental receiving TE with the size and athleticism to grow into a competent blocker. Again, disappointing to take a project in the second, unless he can step in and become a dirty starter despite his rawness.

Overall, I'm not terribly happy with this draft. I could ignore the board and reach for my favorite guys, but that's not the point of this game, so I'll play along. All the same, I think the Patriots can do better in the real world, even though I'm quite fond of the first two picks.
