    It's time to get the ball rolling again folks, and we're a little bit late as well. Here's a link to last year's thread and final list:

    http://www.patsfans.com/new-england...draft-contacts-2011-a-page35.html#post2523918

    Remember, what we're trying to do is list the player's the Pats have had contact with in the build up to the Draft, and gain a wider picture of the positions etc.

    Something that's been up for discussion is the "legend" as I like to call it, if you have any suggestions, feel free to put your ideas forward. Here's the legend as it stands now:


    V - Official Pre-Draft visit; visited team facilities/hosted by team in area
    PW - Private workout held with prospect
    AW - Attended open workout on Campus
    C - Position Coach or Coordinator contact
    MC - Team has spoken to player or agent or had on-Campus visit; miscellaneous contact
    APD - Team official has attended Pro-Day
    I - Interviewed at Combine/All-Star game
    RI - Rumoured interest


    NB: All players in larger font, and Bold, Italic and Underline, have met the "Three Contact Rule". To meet the TCR, a prospect must have three confirmed contacts (RI does not count). The TCR implies that the Patriots are very very interested in them, and there's a very good chance we'll draft them. Don't take it for granted though.

    Are we ready? Let's do it :)

    This is what I was thinking as I was watching him at the Combine today. He'd most likely be a project as a FB/TE but might be worth a late round pick or to have on board to sign as an UDFA.

    Does anyone have a breakdown of our draft picks last year and what contact they had with the pats for some reference? E.g we know BB went to the Connecticut pro day and they selected Butler e.t.c

    Make a spreadsheet in Google and link to it, imo.

    Using the list BritPat put together last year and comparing it to the compilation James had over at his site, here's what I came up with. Not an exact science, as despite cell phone cameras, social media, the web, paparazzi and whatever else some visits still don't ever get publicly reported - but it gives you a general idea of what to expect - or perhaps I should say, not expect.

    2011 Patriots Draft Contacts | NEPatriotsDraft.com - 2012 NFL Draft

    Nate Solder: Official Visit; Attended Pro Day
    Ras-I Dowling: ---
    Shane Vereen: Attended Pro Day
    Stevan Ridley: Attended Pro Day
    Ryan Mallett: Official Visit; Attended Pro Day
    Marcus Cannon: ---
    Lee Smith: ---
    Markell Carter: ---
    Malcolm Williams: ---

    It should also be noted that the two players the Pats appeared to have had the most contact with were not drafted by the team: C Brandon Fusco and DE Allen Bailey.


    Thanks to NEPatriotsDraft.com for sharing that info.




    Edit To Add: After the fact additional information did come out in regards to the visits; obviously many go unnoticed:

    The Pats were definitely at Lee Smith's Pro Day. I linked to it in another thread.

    Before the draft, I was convinced Pats were drafting Bailey because of all the contact. (Though I later had some doubts when someone posted some game film showing how slow he was off the line.) It seems to me that a lot of reported interest is probably a smokescreen.

    Very true - and sometimes it takes almost zero effort to create that smokescreen. One example would be when so many mediots convinced fans from all 32 NFL fan bases that the Pats were going to draft Tim Tebow two years ago. Another would be when the Pats worked out Vernon Gholston and the Jets were convinced the Pats wanted to draft him.
