I can see the Pats trying to move up for a desirable first round selection, then again, considering how steep the learning curve is for DE to OLB, I can see them punting for field position in later rounds/drafts. Sigh, darned moving targets.
I don't think the Jets are any better or worse off in their player pool than the Pats and I'm not so sure there is a premium OLB conversion project likely to fall below the top 20 (Moss (FL), Adams (Clemson), and Anderson (Arkansas) read like the most athletic). Spencer and Woodley haven't swayed me, interested, but not swayed.
Nolan & Singletary apparently tested Moses (GA) and Pittman (LSU) after practice in LB drills...http://www.draftboardinsider.com/art...0125south.html
See last comment. I also will be taking a closer look at McDonald (FL) as I look at my Senior Bowl stash, he looks to be as athletic as Willie.
At this point, I'd still rather keep my eye on Bradley in hopes of developing him alongside Alexander and Mays inside, and take a flyer on DeOssie later on. I'm assuming the Pat's re-sign TBC giving them Vrabel, Colvin, TBC, and Woods for OLB duty - and Woods seemed to be ahead of TBC in his development thanks to Michigan's occasional morph to a 3-4. I'm also assuming Gardner will be brought back and will bulk up a little as he rehabs.
