    I wanted to try something different. I took need completely out of the equation and picked who I thought was the best player available at each selection the Patriots have. If ended up selecting 6 CB's or 8 OL's then that's what it would be. I used this NFL Draft Scout list for the rankings:

    NFL Draft - 2009 Draft Prospects - CBSSports.com Football

    I am interested in seeing who other people come up with if they choose to do this exercise. Here is what I came up with:

    23:Eben Britton OT Arizona
    34: Aaron Maybin OLB Penn State
    47: Louis Delmas, S Western Michigan
    58: Jarron Gilbert DE San Jose State
    89: Gerald Cadogan OT Penn State
    97: Cornelius Ingram TE Florida
    124: Jasper Brinkley ILB South Carolina
    170: Chris Clemons S Clemson
    199: Henry Melton DE/OLB Texas
    207: Hunter Cantwell QB Louisville
    234: Jamarko Smmons WR Western Michigan

    This was an exercise Doc did just to see how it would come out if he took BPA regardless of who it was. ;)

    Ineresting list. Not sure how you come up with "best player" - currently or projected potential? Aaron Maybin does not seem NFL ready, but if you project him out a year or two it is different.

    My day 1 list:

    23. Darius Butler (current) or Connor Barwin (projected)
    34. Hakeem Nicks (current) or William Beatty (projected)
    47. Louis Delmas (current) or Sean Smith (projected)
    58. Jarron Gilbert

    If you are using their prospect list and rankings then

    23:Brandon Pettigrew TE
    34:Alex Mack C
    47:Lewis Delmas FS
    58:Herman Johnson OG
    89:Chip Vaughn SS
    97:Louie Sakoda K
    124:Tony Fiametta FB

    These players would be the best available by their positional rankings.

    BAP (for Patriots) on this ranking:

    23 Eben Britton OT Arizona
    34 Larry English LB N. Illinois
    47 Patrick Chung SS Oregon
    (Delmas is temtping but Chung seems smarter with higher floor)
    58 Joaquin Iglesias WR Oklahoma
    89 Andre Levitre OG Oregon St.
    97 Steven McGee QB Texas A&M

    Nice haul, but I'd trade out of 58 in this scenario.

    I would be happy with this:
    #23) Knowshon Moreno-RB UGA
    #34) Larry English-DE/OLB NIU
    #47) Patrick Chung-SS Oregon
    #58) Jaron Gilbert-DE San Jose state

    I could exchange Gilbert with a Guard or a Tackle.

    Right now I am leaning toward....

    1.) - Butler CB - Superior change of direction. Extremely confident and shows ball skills.
    2A.) Trade for a 2010 1st rounder.
    2B.) - Barwin OLB - Very raw. Will contribute on ST while spending a year or two to develop.
    2C.) - Kruger ILB - Two down run defender. Always around the ball. Rotates with Guyton.
    3A.) - Byrd FS - Very physical. Best run defender in this class.
    3B.) - Lang OG - Moved from OT. Very nasty and can road grade/drive block.
    4.) - Eglisias WR - Has experience running option routes. Knows how to seperate.

    Curiously, I think that is better than many mocks I've seen.

    I realized that today. It was late for me as I was on the west coast...

    Sorry about that Doc.
