    Mike Lombardi was the one who went to Taliaferro's PW and I've also read that he was the one present for terrance West's pro day as well. In light of the rumour about Carlos Hyde earlier this week, the larger RB is clearly on the agenda.

    That's one name that should keep us on our toes as the second round pick approaches. Unheralded player from Illinois.
    Six receptions total in 2013, up from two catches in 2012. One kick return for 2.0 yards total, so he can play special teams too.

    Big fan of Martavis Bryant. Reminds me of Randy Moss. Bryant's coaches actually were asked which receiver has the most potential, and they said Bryant, not Watkins.

    Johnson was 1st team SEC LT and didn't give up a sack in two years! Saw a draft tout list him as an OC. Another has him as a "Patriots" kind of player.

    I heard an interview with Su'a Filo yesterday. About as impressive an interview as I've heard. very intelligent, likeable and professional guy. Two things of note, when he was asked which team he'd like to play for, the Patriots were first on his list (he liked the way our OL plays). Secondly, he models himself on Logan Mankins. Impressive guy that I like more today than I did yesterday.

    Maybe Su'a-Filo is good enough to break the mold, but the Patriots' MO seems to be to find LTs and make them into guards.

    I remember when Mankins was selected and BB was doing his presser, he was adamant about how Mankins was going to play guard for NE though he spent his whole college career at LT.

    We worked out N Colorado QB Seth Lobato. Remember the name, aside from his forty time (4.92), he's almost identical to Kevin O'Connell in terms of size and athleticism.

    So by my count, the Patriots ended up with five players that they had contacted, is that correct?

    At least a few contacts with draft picks. Only one with a UDFA. The
    process seems overrated for judging talent.

    Perhaps it is by meeting with people that they do the judging of talent? e.g.: "Wow, we thought he was something special... until we met with him. What a sack of bricks."
