I have been thinking a lot about the draft recently and though most people are expecting the Pats to take an OLB with their first round pick and consider safety a need because of the loss of Rodney. First to state the obvious no one except BB knows what BB thinks and the rest of us are just guessing. Based on what we read and hear about BBâ€™s appreciation for James Sanders and the fact that the Pats signed Sanders to a contract extension I think it is unlikely that BB is looking to replace Sanders with an early pick. Also I think Rodneyâ€™s short term replacement is already on the team and his name is Tank Williams or, if you like, Gary Guyton, serves that role as the coverage linebacker/safety. I donâ€™t think BB would have traded Vrabel if he didn't think that players on the roster could replace him. Redd, Crable and Woods are the players that I think will serve as Vrabelâ€™s replacement. Plus a lot was made last year of Guytonâ€™s ability to play all 4 LB spots. Because of these guesses on my part about BBâ€™s thinking I find it more likely that BB will pick up OL or DL help early to eventually replace Kazcur, Neal, or Seymour. Thoughts?
