After the 09 season 3 out of 5 starters are over free agents (plus 2 out of 3 reserves) and 4 out 5 starters are over 30. It might be a year too late but in the 2009 draft there will likely be some linemen drafted.
There are some obvious studs that won't be available at pick 32 but there should still be a lot of good players.
Any players we should be watching this year?
The ROT that I want the Pats to draft is Unger of Oregon or Boone of OSU or Seaster of Purdue and if I had to have an OG in this draft, I might take Urbik of Wisconsin, but I would rather move Stancheck of West Virginia to OG alaMankinsa few years ago.
