    Could this guy be the player NE takes in round one?

    This versatile defensive player comes from what USED to be a school nicknamed Linebacker U which of course is Penn State

    Seems like he is made for this team as he can play either DE or OLB and BB likes these types of guys although I can't remember the last time BB drafted a player from Penn State

    Of course this is based BEFORE the combine,But anyone right now on the Maybin bandwagon?

    Too early to tell. From what I've seen and heard he has great athleticism, is young, has a high upside, and may be one of the better DL -> OLB conversion projects to come around in a while. He also sounds like a decent kid with a good motor.

    On the downside he has only one year under his belt, is physically immature, may not be able to put on the needed weight, and is not necessarily able to handle the coverage and point of attack duties that Belichick demands from his OLBs.

    So I think he is someone we keep an eye on, but I am keeping an open mind as to whether he is a potential fit.

    I like Maybin's upside but I think he is slated to go well before the Pats get to pick. If he slips though, you gotta take a long hard look.

    Mayo, when he came in, looked like a man. He looks 30 years old and not out of place standing next to veterans. Maybin looks like a high school kid. Sometimes these boyish-looking guys act and play like kids too.

    There is a guy that looked like a high school kid that I can remember saying looked like one coming out of the draft

    That happens to be the QB that beat the Patriots last year in the Super Bowl...Eli Manning


    Looks mean nothing IMO

    How many First Roundd draft picks has Belichick used on under classmen. Not many, (Any?)

    So Maybin is a possibility, but a remote one. :D
