    Simple question (and I didn't screw it up this time!).

    Just remember--day one only, so don't pick more than four.

    I said DE and WR. Those are my predictions. I'm on the fence on Oline and DBs - I'm not sure they won't pick them up a little later and try to develop them. I think they take a rookie DE early to replace Wright this year and possibly Sey next. I think they take a WR to start opposite Moss by the end of this year, if not earlier.

    I could see them sticking with Hobbs, Wheatley, Wilhite and Richardson at CB and throwing a third rounder in the mix.

    Of course, a lot depends on who's on the board when it comes time to select.

    I seem them picking one LB and one DB with two of their picks. I'm hoping that they will get a fourth day 1 pick for franchising and trading Cassel. With one the other 1-2 picks I see them picking an OL - probably on OG/C unless they are willing to spend a first round pick on an OT. If they do get an extra pick, it will be BPA and could be almost anything at this point: WR, TE, CB, DL, among others.

    I can see a safety pick early. I don't think we'll see a corner before round 3 unless Wheatley is fup-duck too seriously to be ready to go in camp.

    I expect that they'll be looking at offensive tackle, Outside Linebacker, safety, and cornerback, and that they'll take the player that is of greatest value at that draft slot, relative to the other players at that position that can be had later in the draft.

    Interesting results so far, although I can't say they're surprising. While it is a theoretical possibility, I'm glad only one person has voted for RB. [Over on footballsfuture.com--which has more than its fair share of mock draft FAIL--it's pretty much conventional wisdom that the Pats will draft a running back in the first three rounds, if not the first.
