1) Chad Greenway, OLB, Iowa - The Patriots need an outside linebacker with speed to rush off the edge and the toughness to make plays against the run. Greenway didn't perform particularly well in pre-draft workouts, but he always is around the ball. He never stops hustling, a key trait for coach Bill Belichick.
2) Derek Hagan, WR, Arizona St. - The knock on Hagan has been a lack of speed, but he squashed that issue in pre-draft workouts. Deion Branch has been limited by injuries, Troy Brown is almost 35, and newly signed Reche Caldwell is a career underachiever. Hagan is polished, has good hands and could contribute right away.
3a) D'Qwell Jackson, ILB, Maryland
3b) Anwar Phillips, CB, Penn St.
4a) Paul McQuistan, OT, Weber St.
4b) Jon Scifres, K, SMS
5) Calvin Lowry, S, Penn St.
6a) David Anderson, WR, Colorado St.
6b) Josh Lay, CB, Pitt
6c) PJ Daniels, RB, Georgia Tech
7) Matt Lentz, OG, Michigan
Alot of guys I've never heard of in the later rounds. Notably, they have the Pats taking half the Penn St. secondary... just need Alan Zemaitis and we'll be all set. No RB until the 6th round, not sure about that, and not sure about a kicker in the 4th with guys like Elvis Dumervil, Chris Gocong, Wali Lundy, Mike Hass, and Leon Washington still on the board.
I can live with the 6th & 7th round.
