1. LB Keith Rivers, USC The most lasting Superbowl memory for me was the Manning brothers' postgame locker interview, where Peyton told Eli, "See! I told you they wouldn't blitz!" Teams around the league are very aware of the Patriots physical and schematical limitations. A versatile athlete like Rivers has the speed and athleticism they need. 2. DB Quintin Demps, UTEP Some might question the value of the pick but a FS with 4.38 speed who has exceptional ball skills and experience at (Right) CB seems just what they are looking for in a prospect. Adding this sleeper pick would allow the Patriots more flexibility schematically, meaning the more limited LB's will have to cover less. 3. CB DeJuan Tribble, BC Going into last season, Tribble was drawing comparisons to some of the game's best. A medical red flag and a poor postseason, including what is being called a slow 40 time for a smallish back places him under the radar on most teams board. Despite some fans anti-local sentiments, Tribble looks like a major early steal. 4. RT Mike McGlynn, Pittsburgh I think every Patriots fan held their breath as the Giants ripped through the line and took their best shots at Tom Brady. Pretty scary sight! While it's hard to fault any single player, it's clear that an upgrade is sorely needed. McGlynn often goes unnoticed but has turned the heads of scouts with his quick feet and consistency. 5. QB Colt Brennen, Hawaii Tumbled out of sight after the Sugarbowl beating he took, where he got no protection, looked lost and confused. Before that game, he was highly praised for his accuracy. Scouts waited for it to reappear but, unfortunately, it didn't. He played in a Patriots-type offense under June Jones and will backup Brady. 6. NT Keilen Dykes, WV Though you won't find his name on the Combine list and you won't likely hear many people talking about him, Dykes is a versatile defender with nice experience playing the 0-technique position, required of 3-4 Nose Tackles. Because it's so difficult to find these players, he'll be an early day two pick. 7. WR Devone Bess, Hawaii The only eye-popping numbers you will see from him are his production numbers. With the depth of WR in this class, there's a chance he goes undrafted. But it seems to me that the Patriots are looking hard at slot WR's (like Darius Reynaud). Having Bess play the slot will allow them to not only relieve Welker but move him around. 8. LB/DE Jermey Geathers, UNLV I think it's pretty clear to most that Geathers overestimated where he would go in the draft after leaving school early. With that said, with his bloodlines and his (6'-2", 248lb) frame, this kid looks like a nice late round find who could develop into a serious edge rusher or situational LB. Not the prospect fans are dreaming of but, still, a solid pick.
