    It's another pretty good mock. I agree with a lot of their picks:

    - Sanchez to Seattle at #4
    - Wells to the Saints
    - Jackson to the Chargers
    - Freeman to the Bucs
    - Pettigrew to the Eagles
    - Nicks to the Giants
    - Gilbert as an option for Tennessee at #30 - great possible replacement for Haynesworth
    - Moreno to Arizon at 31
    - Mack to Pittsburgh at 32

    I don't see Stafford to SF at #10, and I think Laurinaitis is a better fit at MLB for Detroit than Maualuga. Clint Sintim at 73 seems very low to me, and probably Cody Brown at 95 as well (I could see Brown at 73 though).

    If you swap Laurinaitis and Maualuga, then I like the draft a lot. Barwin at #23 and Maualuga at 34 would be excellent. I would personally prefer Louis Delmas at 47 and Jamon Meredith at 57 to their picks (Eric Wood at 47 and Patrick Chung at 58) but it's arguable. I love James Casey at 89. Get rid of the Macho Harris pick at 97 and substitute TJ Lang or one of the remaining DT's (Chris Baker or Sammie Lee Hill) and I love it:

    23 - Connor Barwin, OLB
    34 - Rey Maualuga, ILB
    47 - Louis Delmas, S
    58 - Jamon Meredith, OT
    89 - James Casey, TE/H-back
    97 - TJ Lang, OL or Chris Baker/Sammie Lee Hill, DT

    I could absolutely live with that draft.

    A little OT:
    Something tells me that the Bengals drafting Andre Smith would probably end setting them back. I could definitely be wrong. I'd expect their front office to be image sensitive and steer clear with their #6 pick.

    It would tickle me a bit pink. Love this draft all things considered.

    I love this draft. Its first four picks are who I wanted to draft in my ideal draft. The Pats get an OLB and ILB the two positions of absolute need, and an interior developmental choice for the OL, and a tough Safety. This should complete the rebuilding of the LB corps in a year with good LB prospects of sufficient size for the Patriots Defense.

    The later picks are for players who play good football, but not the best athletes. That is fine for reserves. :D

    So, you loved the draft so much that you changed half the picks? :)

    Add an OT at 124 (Murtha ?) and this is a fine draft. My preference is Gilbert at 23, but you can't have everything.


    23 OLB Barwin
    34 ILB Laurinitis
    47 OG Wood
    58 SS Chung
    89 TE Casey
    97 CB Harris
    (124) OT Murtha

    I am not sold on taking a TE early in this draft and going with 4 solid TEs into the season. I would have changed the pick and taken an OT (though there are none I like at that spot, argh!)

    I think that most of us trade 89 to upgrade another pick or into 2010. Casey provides value at 89, if Belichick wants to try again for a H-back. In any case, Casey could beat out Thomas for a roster spot or take the vacant FB position.

    ummm.... haven't we discussed this one before? This is the NFP's mock from last week, right?

    New answer to this mock.... Mack or Moreno with the 23rd pick. They are legitimate first round talent. Mack can play anywhere on the line and plays hard (kinda like Jeff Faine, but smiles more). Moreno is tough and hit the hole hard (kinda like Maroney in his rookie year).

    Kenny Britt isn't a need for the Pats, but should be hard to pass up 34. Outside of Crabtree, I think he is one of the most complete WRs. Then again, if the Pats are going to take a WR, I would much rather than look at Knox in the later rounds.
