I do a fair amount of draft related browsing and there's a couple of Pats related rumours that I've come up with from team related boards relevant to the Patriots which I thought I'd share. I am not ascribing any credibility to them, they may be BS but they MAY come from a source other than someone just speculating which is why I'm sharing them. 1. First, a rumour from a Dallas Cowboys message board which I visit from time to time. They have two commentators there that the rest of the board seem to respect a lot. Both commentators claim sources with knowledge of the Cowboys draft intentions. I cannot comment on the reliability of those claims, but the respect other commentators show for their information suggests that there might be something there. The first commentator had this to say about the Cowboys pick @9: In response, the other commentator added: Also related to the Patriots is that the Cowboys are seriously looking at JJ Watt although Tyron Smith is still the most likely. for those adverse to the Pats trading up, not all is lost. The two "insiders" are sure that if Peterson falls to the Browns at 6, the Cowboys will look to trade up and snag him. 2. I'm sure a lot of you know about Blinded By the Lombardies, the Patriots forum at Sons of Sam Horn. There is a commentator there called ElcaballitoMVP who claims a source within the Patriots organisation. The reason that I think he has some credibility is that on the day of the draft last year, before it started, he said that he was hearing the pick was Devin McCourty. Therefore I'll just share what he's been saying recently. There's not much, except that he has said that: and (this is a couple of weeks old) Probably nothing there, but I thought I'd share anyway.
