    Wish that pick the Pats have from the Chargers was a firts rounder rather than a second; would love to see the Pats land Curry. Unfortunately he'll be long gone by the time NE is on the clock.

    He may slide due to his height. Doesn't change the fact he has some of the best 'ball skills' in the entire draft. I doubt the Pats go CB round one. But with 2 picks in round two...:cool:

    Been called a throwback. Strong blocker -- large EZ target. Not a risk in the mid-rounds.

    Won't get to see A.Smith cover given Navy's offense. Am curious to see if
    he's a willing tackler though. A.Curry long gone by the time we pick. Will be kind of an interesting game to check out.

    Don't be so sure that Curry will be gone by the time the Patriots pick. I'm going to be honest, I think he projects more as a 3-4 ILB than a 3-4 OLB or a 4-3 OLB.

    Why I have seen him play a lot and I think he is a perfect 4-3 OLB on the strong side?

    #29 Stephen Hodge, SS, (Sr), 6-0, 214 - UDFA

    #4 Steven Coleman, FS, (rSr), 6-2, 208 - UDFA

    #1 Kyle Wilson, CB, (rJr), 5-10, 190 - Probably won't come out, but he's good enough to draft if he does.

    I haven't had a chance to see TCU yet this year so I'm looking forward to this game; BSU I've seen 6 times. Oh, I think the Morris kid from TX Tech is the real poor man's Wes Welker but since he's just a So., I'll give you Perretta.

    :confused:

    Morris is a senior. And why would the Pats want another poor man's Welker (Ventrone looks fully capable of filling that role if need be)?

    Didn't say you did. I was just wondering "aloud." :)

    Gently, please, gentle-beings, tis the season of peace and good will, not to mention Bowl excitement - and how can a team have too many Wes Welkers? ;)
