Let's hit on one of them like last year !!
He did say that one of them could be a 6th.:rocker:
6 7th round picks!! The Pats are gonna OWN the 7th round!!!!
I guess there is always a chance that they could hit on a flyer or two. If this is the deepest draft since 1983, having a bunch of picks at the end will put the Pats ahead of the game in UDFA market.
I'd like to get 4 players with our top 4 picks. Then, draft the boom/bust type. Who cares it 5 can't find Rhode Island on the map and make it to training camp, as long as 1-2 turn out to be players.
how about 4 punters to compete for a roster spot
On a more serious note, there are some awesome looking sleepers in this year's draft. We could potentially get some real players later on. Pretty exciting.
Too bad you can't trade them.
6 7th rounders, wow. They can draft the small school unknown kids, trouble makers who fell, kids who broke their legs their final year.
If you roll the dice 6 times you'll most likely hit once.
Thanks for the link, CoachK.
It would help a lot if one of those 7ths becomes a 6th.
I do expect the Pats to try and deal their own and the Philly pick in hopes of moving up in this round or 2011.
The Pats do have several spots that could be attacked with late round picks...3rd/developmental QB, 3rd/developmental TE, punter, 5th/6th WR, latest entry into Dante's prep school, conversion projects/redshirts. How about this:
QB Tim Hiller
TE Nate Bynum
P Matt Dodge
WR Seyi Ajirotutu
OL Joe Hawley
LB O'Brien Schofield
Change the names to your favorites, but that is a reasonable haul that could be sitting there in the 7th round.
My 7th round wish list...
QB - Sean Canfield
WR - David Gettis
OT - Chris Scott
TE - Nate Bynum
P - Matt Dodge
Very Nice, I think Schoefield would be an excellent guy to take a chance. I really like Bynum.
Do you mean Nate Byham from Pitt, or someone else named Bynum from another school?
I like Gettis but I think he's rated as a mid 4th at the moment.
Both of these guys had good workouts so they may have moved up as well, but...
Arthur Moats, LB, James Madison
A.J. Jefferson, CB, Fresno State
are 2 guys I'm targeting in the late rounds.
FWIW, here are all the players the Pats have drafted in the 7th since 2004, categorized by the reason they were still available so late. The names in red were major-conference players experienced at their positions but lacking in physical attributes and skills. The names in blue were shoot-the-moon prospects with great athletic potential but no high level experience at their prospective positions.
From that small sample, the "blue" approach looks pretty darned good.
Hmmm. Interesting. Morton should be a third color though, since he had the skills (I think he's still in the league). He was a 7th rounder due to character question marks.
Belichick has done very, very well with these picks.
Cassell, Andrews and Edelman were solid contributers for us. Morton is a perennial backup and still in the league. That's a 50% hit rate, without counting on Richard for anything.

With Schofield having blown out his knee during Senior Bowl practices, I'm not sure if the Pats take a flyer on him or not..
Eddie Adamski - C
Kyle Mutcher - C
Juamorris Stewart - WR - Say him in the Texas vs. the Nation game. Very good route runner and willing to go over the middle.
Trindon Holliday - KR - I know they list him as a WR, but this kid is just electric as a KR. And his size (5'5") helps him avoid many tackles.
Kelton Tindal - WR - 6'2 and is expected to run his 40 in the low 4.3s and possibly in the 4.2s. Good at adjusting to the deep throws.. Is extremely raw on running routes (Think high school freshman raw). Needs work with the Jugs machine..
Jim Dray - A lot of people liked this kid prior to the Combine. He is a smooth route runner, can catch the ball and is a good blocker. The issues seem to be that he's from Stanford, coming off a knee injury and doesn't seem to have a lot of upside..
Crezdon Butler - CB -
Josh Hull - ILB - Said during the TX vs. Nation game that he wants to play for the Pats. Has the size the Pats look for at ILB. He's stout against the run and he likes to mix it up inside.. He also showed he's decent at dropping back into coverage.
Why not? If they're going to have 12+ picks, might as well push one into 2011. . . .
