    Obviously I like the Barwin pick, but it seems like a fairly well thought out mock overall. I've had some of the same picks, including:

    - Chris Wells to New Orleans
    - Tyson Jackson to San Diego
    - Josh Freeman to Tampa Bay
    - Brandon Pettigrew to Philadelphia
    - Knowshon Moreno to Arizona

    Mark Sanchez last to #17 seems a stretch to me, but that's probably the biggest one right now.

    Barwin aside, that seems like a very smart mock, one of the best I've seen. Even if I did initially read it as "DraftHindquarters."

    We've already seen plenty of "drafthindquarters" mocks so far this season. :D

    It is, I read through the comments and was very happy with it given that I've ordered the book (as I said I got last year's too). I love all the draft sites but I really like a hard copy I can read on the sofa instead of sitting at my computer all night. This and the PFW book will suffice.

    Which reminds me -- did we already tear apart the 3/28 3-rounder from The Huddle Report? Check out this fabulous Pats haul:

    23 - Aaron Maybin
    34 - Michael Johnson
    47 - Duke Robinson
    58 - William Moore
    89 - Ramses Barden
    97 - Herman Johnson

    Yes, that's 2 physically gifted but risky pass rushers who can't set the edge to save their lives and 2 massive guards with weight issues and limited lateral mobility in the first 3 rounds! But wait, it gets better. They give 2nd & 3rd choices for each pick, and the alternates at #97 -- after taking SS William Moore -- were...SS Chip Vaughn and SS Michael Hamlin. It's as if they're determined to draft every player twice.

    They're drafting each position twice, but quite possibly still not filling the need. Maybe they plan to have Duke Robinson and Herman Johnson play OLB in running downs. There would be no "edge" left to set. :D

    As a Pats fan, there are some picks they make which I hope don't come true, though I think they are solid picks:

    #30 - Jarron Gilbert going to Tennessee. I can really see this happening. Gilbert has so much upside and his 6'5" frame can easily put on another 20+ lbs. He's really a nice pick with the ceiling to potentially make up for Haynesworth's loss in the middle.

    #32 - William Beatty going to Pittsburgh. I'm not quite as sold on this as Pittsburgh seems a bit too smash-mouth in style for Beatty, but they clearly need OL help and a possible franchise LT may be too good to pass up. I had them taking Alex Mack here, but Beatty could easily be an option.

    That would deprive us of 2 of my favorite picks that I was hoping would slide to the 2nd round. I would see Louis Delmas at #34, but I had been hoping that one of these 2 would slide to #34 and then we could trade up to around #37 and get Delmas, for a trifecta.

    I agree with Patchick that it's one of the better drafts I've seen. I'd like to see a second round from them.

    I really like that Duke Robinson pick. Johnson i don't like at all he seems to risky for me. The Moore pick is also a nice one. I can't see Maybin falling to 23 at this point.

    Ouch! With a draft like this, we could rank in the bottom third of the league in run defense.
