    Ebner and Demps seem to have taken the place of Denard, Bolden and Francis.

    Would you rather see one of the Three Stooges instead?

    Josh Barrett
    James Ihedigbo

    I expect one of three to make the team, even if Ebner makes the 53.

    Vote Ebner.

    Ebner is going to Ebner Moss.

    I wonder if a Denard would clear waivers.

    I would rather see Jeff Demps on the 53 man roster than one of the Three Stooges.

    Besides, Nate Ebner can single handedly take on the NY Jets offense, no problem whatsoever.

    Ebner because I love it when they go that far outside the box. this could be Stephen Neal all over again.

    T. Wilson because of the unwarranted hate he got from many Patriot fans who treasure Kiper and deride Belichick for draft acumen.

    Basically this whole draft, I loved the Jones, Hightower, and Bequette picks and really like the rest. Bequette could turn out to be a real find, I really believe that Saban told Belichick that Bequette was a major pain in the @ss with a great motor and real love of football.


    B. Bolden, every time they find a good RB without using a pick it's a really good thing. Bolden may not clear waivers, hopefully they find a way to keep him.


    Demps, the newest addition but freaky upside. Gambreaker.

    I wonder if Dennard will end up on injured reserve, since he can't find the practice field.

    If he had showed sonething in camp and pre-season that could be a concern, but given that the entire league passed on him and that he has legal problems still pending it is unlikely that any team would use a roster spot on him. If he cleared i think the Patriots would have the inside advantage and he would sign with them because they used a pick when no other team would, however I think defense rules was right and it will probably be IR for Dennard.

    Heh same here....i kind of liked Ihedigbo because he filled a role when we needed it and he played through pain.

    Credit to him for that.

    I don't get the hate for the special teamer forced to play injured and played like a hurt special teamer.

    Barrett and Brown lack an excuse, though.

    I don't dislike Ihedigbo, he's tough and he's a good ST player, but he's not a safety and they are getting so deep on their ST units that it is getting harder and harder for these guys to stay around. Good players who we like are going to get cut, there's no way around that, this team is really really deep.

    Jeremy Ebert since I gave him props pre draft. Actually called the pick in the 7th during the draft thread.

    Hoping he at least makes the practice squad so we can see him in the slot in the future.

    Loved the Ebner pick. My binkie.
    And props to Ihedigbo whom I like playing backup last season while hurt. That said I sincerely hope that he and far more so Brown are not on the upgraded 2012 53 man squad.

    Ihedigbo isn't a safety and a player who played 3 games at safety at college is an nil safety?

    I love Ebert and Ebner, and I hope both will be come immediate impact players.....on the PS. IMHO that's the best place for both for this coming season. Both for the Pats, and for both's future development.

    It's a what you can do this season league, especially this team.

    Once you're initially signed it's how you do on the field. Ebner is having a great camp at safety. BB knows Heddy's upside. :(

    BB has no problem putting UDFAs on the 53. As we can see from 2 other threads, Ebner's upside exceeds Suni Williams' on the ISS.

    Ebert to PS

    Agree, with the condition that Ebner continues to demonstrate the improvement at safety that he's shown recently over the remainder of the preseason. It's a compressed time frame and poses a real challenge, but having a ST/Safety on the roster whose upside is undetermined and rising isn't a bad risk over some of the alternatives. I believe the team has identified their top 3 safeties already, they likely will give the others the playing time required to prove themselves.

    Well said.
    He's my bink but it's a daunting task. A minor injury cutting time on the field or a couple big mistakes in game coverage that us fans without All 22 probably won't even notice and it's off to the PS.

    Love the sig

    If that happens, then Bill hasn't done enough to improve the Safety position.

    I thought he looked very good at practice on Friday. Sharp cuts, good hands.
    On kickoff and punt returns, not so good.

    I want Ebert to make it, he follows me on Twitter. Ebner is a stud he will make it, he was one of my favorite picks, I liked him and called him making the team before the camp reports.

    If Ihedigbo returns as the #4 after being the #2 last year and #1 when Chung was injured, I think that says that he's done an awful lot.

    He wasn't a returner in college, so he's pretty inexperienced at it. Hopefully v that will improve, but I think he can make it as the 4th wide receiver over Branch because we can always resign Branch, he does not have to pass through waivers. He would be a good shadow roster spot, as he would be inactive most games unless an injury anyways, I'd rather give it to a young guy with potential.

    Nonsense.

    Belichick counted on all three last year. Counting on one of the three as the 4th or 5th safety doesn't mean much other than he values safety depth in his special teamers.

    Duh! Good point about Branch that had escaped my thoughts. Time for The Twig to transition to the estimable shadow roster. Keeps the team younger with potential and provides an emergency binkie solution for injury at the WR position.
