    I can just imagine Watson and Branch and Givens and Graham tearing stadiums down, held steady by a Light-Mankins-Koppen-Neal-Kaczur line.

    Youth on defense as well. Warren-Wilfork-Seymour-Green. Colvin and Vrabel still have a good amount of years left, Willie and Bru will stick it out a few more.

    Hobbs, Samuel, Sanders, Scott.

    And then there's the draft...

    I don't see Givens on the team. And to be honest he is a bit fragile... along with Bethel.

    The 21st pick is a nice consolation prize.

    I expect us to draft Santonio Holmes to team with Branch after Givens leaves for the money. I love Givens but Holmes and Branch will be a more explosive pair and we have Graham and Watson for the posession role that Givens mostly fills.

    Well


    Fragile or not, he's made some huge catches for us and unless he wants stupid money i think he will be back!


    Hey let's not forget that there's a good chance that Rodney is back rolling :D

    I thught it was in order of elimination which would give us # 26. Am I wrong?

    Yeah, it's based on regular season record except :

    - Super Bowl teams are #31 and #32.
    - All playoff teams are after all non playoff teams.
    - Tied playoff teams first tie breaker is playoff advancement.

    It adds up to #21, baby.

    I'd rather pick up a Darnell Bing or maybe LaRon Landry to learn from Rodney and company, or one of the top halfbacks like White or DeAngelo Williams, followed by a solid linebacker (Abdul Hodge? Bobby Carpenter?) and this guy at WR, who I think is another Deion Branch waiting to happen:

    Bill is drafting Mike Huff from Texas. A corner who can play FS. It's in STONE

    We very rarely use a #1 pick to develop behind someone.

    Andruzzi => Mankins
    Washington => Wilfork
    Hamilton => Warren
    Minn TE (forget his name) => Graham

    It's almost scary how predictable it is.

    No Jersey Selected

    How will RB be handled though? Dillon seems to have significantly slowed up, and now we're back to where we were 2 years ago.

    I was thinking the same thing. A versitial player no doubt. And a leader. Hope fully he is there at 21.

    Good looking RB from Memphis.

    We're "stuck" with Dillon and Faulk, though, I doubt we'll add a #1 pick to that mix.

    I don't really mean that the pick would be developed behind Rodney... this is assuming Rodney is not ready to start the season.

    I'm not so sure he is there, given his ballhawking ability and the rising draft stock of Texas players. He could be the first safety off the board. And I don't know if the Pats take him even if he is there. If I had to name one guy I think they draft at safety, Roman Harper is the guy that comes to mind. Everything about him screams "Patriots player", from his versatility (plays both safety positions), to his big hitting and willingness to play in the box as a safety, to his great instincts, even if he doesn't have great numbers, just average ones.

    I'd love a stud safety or CB too . . . but did you guys watch the game tonight ?

    The offense sucked. Dillon will be a year older. The OL should be better. But if Givens is gone, WR is our #1 need unless we get a good one in FA.

    I think we could use another WR anyway, but I like how Andre Davis developed and would like to see him back, with a shot at the #2 spot if Givens isn't retained. I'd like to keep Givens around though, unless they want to save the money for Seymour.
