    I'm very excited about the draft. The picks we have set the Pats up to make some significant improvements on the defensive side primarily. I just hope we don't get cute and try to trade down when impact players are available at our higher picks. We need players now not next year.

    Before I get excited about the draft, I have to get excited about the new CBA.

    Defense won both games today.

    As good as Rogers is took a pick 6 from a fatty to win game.

    Same as jets game,pressure fumble for 6 was the diff.

    Pats better use top 3 picks on D or forget about it.

    Why? The draft is gonna happen before a new CBA is announced and CBA talk is really boring compared to draft talk.

    the draft is going to happen regardless of whether the new CBA is in place. however, obviosly no matter who we draft, they won't play next year unless there is a season.

    what's not to excited about? 8 picks in the first 4 rounds.

    We need help on both lines, even if Mankins stays. And we need improvements at OLB, as well.

    #1A - DE
    #1B - Guard
    #2A - OLB
    #2B - DE/OLB/safety (best of what's available at one these 3 positions)
    #3A - RB
    #3B - OL, possibly RT.

    Mankins is no guarantee to stay, Light is a FA, Neal is likely done, Kaczur is meh... that leaves Seabass, who should be our LT for the next 7+ years. While I think defense should be the main focus, O- line cannot be ignored.

    The draft can't get here soon enough!

    The priorities as I see it:

    DL
    OL
    Pass rusher
    RB

    In that order.

    It's hard to get up for the draft until March-ish. The CBA does affect the draft a little, because without knowing how the rookie salaries will work, it could be risky trading up for talent from a cap standpoint.

    I like the fact we are 2 picks ahead of the Jets. That should make them quite nervous as always

    Pats 17,32,33,64,75,96, ~108*, 5th-7th
    Jets 25, 82, 121, 5th,6th, no 7.
    Jets have 18 free agents.
    *4th rd guesstimate, 28th?

    This is why I think Rex has been so over the top,
    next year will be a step back.

    No since last year, they reorder the draft for playoff teams based on where the team was eliminated. We have pick 28, Jets have 29 in the 1st round I believe.

    Jets and Bears have the same record, but the Bears have a lower SOS so they are 29th

    What about a big play wide receiver to flank Branch on the outside?

    Odds on Pats making both first round picks? I say they don't use either of them and they trade down...big shock. I'm getting tired of hearing "oh, this guy doesn't fit the Patriots' "system"...well the f#cking system has sucked the last two years in the playoffs...especially qb and oline play...
    to wit...SB v Carolina and their defensive line that had THIRTY ONE SACKS (39 overall) (that's just the line, not including 'backers, dbacks, etc.) Brady dropped back 48 times with ZERO sacks...
    SB v PHI...sacked twice in 33 drop backs...

    13 sacks in last three playoff losses...maybe we need Russ Hochstein and Tom Ashworth back...or maybe Brady needs to get his head out his ass come January...
