Very interesting. But I have DE/OLB Selvie in the top five. No doubts!
William Moore? Maybe the right position but the wrong prospect (Myron Rolle, FSU; Taylor Mays, USC; Kam Chancellor, VT; or, more likely, converted CB
Vontae Davis out of Illinois).
Beckum? OK, I can see playing the odds with regards to how the Pats historically draft. We'll give you that one.
But my money, right now, is on ILB Brandon Spikes out of Florida.
At 6-3, 244 and 4.65 speed, he ought to be available for the Pats.
Moreover, he thrives in passing situations, dropping back or rushing.
The Patriots seem to value that more so than most other teams. I say,
at this point, watch for Spikes to quietly emerge as the Pats top pick.
