    I participated in another mock, really happy with this one,

    1. DeAngelo Williams RB- obvious picks, White was gone, Carpenter, and Marshall were still available

    2. Traded our second rounder, and detroits fourth rounder to move up, selected Antonio Cromartie CB- I'm high on this guy for a reason, the next Deion Sanders, I had to trade up to get in front of Baltimore who would've taken him in a heartbeat

    3a. Martin Nance WR- BPA, surprised he was still there, WR's selected ahead oh him: Holmes, Jackson, Hagan, Moss, Williams, Watkins, Avant, and Stovall

    3b. Spencer Havner OLB- underrated big time, remind me of Mike Vrabel, great in coverage, leader, smart, but not very athletically gifted

    4b. Leon Williams ILB- great speed/ size, very gifted athletically, needs LOTS of work in coverage, run-stopper, sheds blocks easily, faster then most safeties

    5a. Reggie McNeal QB/ WR- If he pans out... it'll be sweet, if not I just wasted a fifth rounder

    5b. Will Allen OG- Undersized, but very mobile, needs work in pass protection, good in run protection

    6. Marcus Green DT- Motor that never quits, good leader, respected, tough, intense, undersized, with proper coaching, could become a great backup

    7. Josh Houston K- if we can't get one in free agency.... :(

    Its a good draft from a purely TALENT perspective. At least the top 2 picks. Personally, I don't see the Patriots touching either Williams or Cromartie for various reasons. Cromartie, in particular, because he's not very experienced outside of the Nickel position. So, I honestly believe you wasted a draft pick (the Detroit 4th rounder) to trade up to get him, from a purely value perspective.

    I think that you forgot that one of BB's principal mantras (and I am paraphrasing) is that games are won in the trenches. And, in the 3-4 system, your LB are part of those trenches. And they are going to need an impact player there. While I like Havener, I don't see him as being an adequate replacement for Willie. I think that the Patriots are going to focus on a DE/OLB early. Also, I think that Mark Anderson in the 3rd round would be better value than Havener.

    keep in mind in did this before todays new of willie leaving, but one could argue that wr/ rb/ cb are just as big needs,

    of course havner isnt a adequate replacement for willie, but who is? we need to find his replacement via trade, or free agency, havner will be a solid backup, nothing more for at least a few years, he sounds like a pats player for sure, look at his nfldraftcountdown.com profile

    i cant find anything on anderson, so i dont know what to say about him

    Not sure where you are looking, but Mark Anderson had very similar tangible stats at the combine to Lawson, but Lawson was faster at 4.43 to Anderson's 4.61.

    Anderson was a DE of Alabama, but is in the Tweener mold like McGinest. Anderson actually weighs more than Lawson does at 254 lbs. Their 3 cone and shuttle were very close to one another.

    Please take into account that Anderson SHINED at the Senior Bowl and showed a variety of moves on his pass rush.
