Not sure if I've slotted these guys properly. But, then again, no one really knows anyhow.
1st – pick 21 – DeAngelo Williams - RB. Unbelievably, this top 10 talent is available @ 21. BB loves productive players with tremendous talent and skill and this guy epitomizes one.
2nd – pick 52 – Richard Marshall – CB. Pat Hill’s boy. Could probably start by mid season.
3rd – pick 75 – Maurice Stovall - WR. Charlie Weis’ boy. Could probably start from day 1.
3rd - pick 86 – Mike Hass – WR. Why stop at one WR when the need at the position is great! This guy has Pats written all over him.
4th – pick 106 – Chris Gocong - DE/OLB. BB loves productive players who get it like Gocong does.
4th - pick 118 – Kai Parham – ILB. Al Groh’s boy.
5th – pick 136 – Pat Ross – OC. The local guy. Smart, leader at a good OL program.
6th – pick 191 – Tyrone Culver – Safety. Pat Hill’s boy and secondary teammate of Marshall.
6th – pick 205 – Stephen Gostkowski. PK.
6th – pick 206 – Jon Scifres. PK. Why stop at one PK when the need at the position is great!
7th – pick 229 – Josh Huston. PK. Why stop at two PK's when the need at the position is great!

For a guy suffering from proximity to Buffalo you could have done worse.
RB in round one - poor value.
CB in round two - fair.
WR - you took them backwards for my value grade, Hass then Stovall, but I'd prefer you to get you top WR then take another second day with PR/KR skills.
Gocong, I'm high on him.
Parham, I'd bump him down another round and take your OC/OG there, but Ross was okay where you got him.
S - at this point a PR/KR option would make more sense.
3 PK, lets see some imagination here!

I like it. (According to some, that's the Kiss of Death.)
Stovall and Hass are pretty much the same receiver. Wouldn't mind trading one of the picks and #52 to move up and take Cromartie if available. Williams has taken a lot of hits, but a yr of backing up CD would probably be good for him.
Thumbs up on Gocong and Parham.
Can't not like a BC center.
Maybe another OL project instead of 3 kickers.
Solid, consevative draft!
Felger started his question, "Correct me if I'm wrong," BB quickly interjected, "I can't wait--"
``The officials now are evaluating the players and their performance, I mean, that's great,'' Belichick deadpanned. ``I can't say how much that means to me, really.''
I see Williams and Maroney a lot on mock drafts, and just don't see that is someone who BB & SP would pick at that spot...I see a defensive player or possibly even another tight end at that spot, no real reason to believe this, but it seems out of character for this org to pick up a RB on the first round.
We like to say that dependability is more important than ability, Bill Belichickism....
Marshall, Hass, Ross and Culver are a nice set of picks.
Recognize that with Sanders already on the roster, we have three quarters of the starting Fresno State secondary on the team, after this.
IMO Gocong and Parham are a sad addition to a LB corp that needs a future. Of the two, Parham is the more interesting pick IMO. Gocong is a serious project. By all accounts, Belichick and Groh are not buddies, so that's unlikely to play a factor, except in the negative.

Fellas, I can't believe the negative comments on Williams. "Shrimpy" - yeah he's not big and fat like a Ron Dayne but the kid is a football player who gets it. "Poor value"? The guy's got top 10 talent and I'm picking him @ 21
The PK selections was to prove a point that I'm worried about the position more than anything. Besides, any picks I make beyond the 5th round would be done with a dart and a board so what the heck.
BF, don't worry about the mileage on Williams' motor. All the Pats will require him for is the the 5 year rookie contract that he signs. Surely he'll be able to put 5 more years in. Then he's gone to the highest bidder anyhow. The key is that he helps us win a SB or two in that timeframe.
Myself, I'm totally stoked at the very real possibility of a Dillon/Williams 1-2 punch at RB. We don't have any RB on the roster who stresses opposing defenses with the fear of speed and home run ability. It's about time we get one. Williams would give us that, and much more. He could spell Dillon and is proven capable of carrying the rock full time. I can see it now. Pound Dillon for 3/4's and then, when the defense is worn down, unleash Williams and his speed on them in the 4th when they are a step too slow to get to him. Or, hand the ball to WIlliams early and often, making the fat defenders have to chase him down. Then, when those fat guys are tired, pound Dillon on them mercilessly to close out games. We wouldn't even need a real #2 WR in such a case.
I have another mock in mind with Manny Lawson as my guy @ 21 but it involves a trade up (to grab Williams) but I didn't want to get into unrealistic trading scenarios.
