After Gholston's ridiculous pro day workout, he won't be there at 7.
So wtf are we going to do? Take some overrated CB from a I-AA school in the top 10?!

I'll take Clady or J. Long at #7 if available. Brady is the franchise and his health is our most important issue. Clady is a little better than D-Brick, a serviceable LT-not in the class of J. Brown or Marcus McNeil- but better than Light. J. Long isn't close to Joe Thomas, but he would be the best OTackle on the Pats immediately. If both Longs, Gholston and Clady are all gone, and I couldn't trade down, I'd go with Groves or Harvey at OLB.
Right now, there are really only 13 players that I like as 1st rdrs. Those would be
C. Long (OLB), Gholston(DE/OLB), Matt Ryan(QB), Clady (LT), Jake Long (RT), James Hardy (WR), J. Stewart (RB), McFadden (RB), D. Harvey (DE), Quentin Groves (OLB), Trevor Laws (DT), Aqib Talib (FS), Antoine Cason (CB).
-I'm waiting for Dorsey and Keith Rivers to work out before deciding how they fit in.

Good to hear some Clady talk. That's who I would take. We would immediately improve RT, add depth to both G and T (which may be an issue depending on Neal) and we would potentially have a LT for when Light is gone or declines. If Neal is gone next year (there's been unsubstantiated talk on the main board that he tore his ACL) we may fix both RG (Kaczur) and RT (Clady) with one pick.
M. Mayock has the Pats taking D. Harvey with the #7 pick. Any thoughts on that?
His physical stats are impressive, like a bigger Willie Mac, but I can't see the FO grabbing a transition player as high as #7 unless he's a no brainer like Gholston. Wouldn't mind seeing it, just like I wouldn't mind seeing Gholston taken if he's on the board, but I'm just not convinced the FO will take this chance this high...I'd expect, as many have suggested, if Gholston is off the board, and they don't think DRC is worth the 7th overall, and they can't trade down, they grab whichever best OT is still there.
