Draft Day Challenge 2006
At the request of Patchick, I am bringing the Draft Day Challenge back!
The object is very simple--identify 10 players that you think will be drafted by the New England Patriots. This can be all LBs, or a spread of individual position players. It can be revised as many times as you need before draft day. Winner gets kudos and bragging rights. Defending champeen is Patchick I do believe.
Many thanks! And to be fair, I'm pretty certain it was a tie last year.
OK, here we go
Subject to change
I don't know. We should probably do a 40 who WON'T be drafted.
Here's a stab. I don't see me changing it, cause then I'll really be ticked if I take a guy off who's drafted. I'll try to improve on my total of 1 from last year (Claridge):
Here's my shot at it:
Antonio Cromartie-CB Florida St.
Bobby Carpenter- LB The Ohio St.
Maurice Stovall-WR Notre Dame
Maurice Drew- RB UCLA
Chris Gocong- DE(think OLB) Cal Poly
Will Blackmon- WR/sometimes DB Boston College
Greg Blue-S Georgia
Pat Ross-C Boston College
Ryan LaCasse-DE Syracuse
Jon Huston-K The Ohio St.
Wimberely OLB FSU - HAs the siza and speed and he can rush or cover. He has the frame to play at 270 without losing any significant speed. Superb charcter.
Marshall CB FSU - Wanted a playmaker in the Pats secondary.
Whitworth ROT LSU - Nastiness is in great demand and he can supply it.
Avant WR Michigan- Excellent quickness, hands and superb character.
Drew RB UCLA - Punt returner and 3rd down specialist in grooming.
Gocong ILB Cal Poly - lacks burst but his porduction can't be overlooked.
Bouknight WR New Mexico - Excellent quickness and production and he can return kicks.
Parham ILB Virginia - 3-4 experience and insticnts.
Wyche OLB Syracuse - Size, speed and some pass rushing ability
B Johnson SS Louisville- tall ((6'5")l converted OLB with 4.4 speed. Can he bring the hammer??????
Manny Lawson (two primary possibilities I'm expecting for round 1)
Joseph Addai (two main possibilities for round 2)
Jerrious Norwood (the last 6 I see as possibilities anywhere from round 3-5).
I'm rooting for
1 Bobby Carpenter (possibly trade down a bit, to get a pick to use to trade up in round 2 to get....)
2 Richard Marshall
3 Jerrious Norwood and Chris GoCong
day 2 Kai Parham, Ryan LaCasse, and David Thomas or Joe Klopfenstein. And throw in an OT, WR, and K. :)
