The draft contests seem to have attracted a number of participants, but haven't generated much dialogue. I'd like to try something else which, if it doesn't generate dialogue, will hopefully give people a forum to give their views in more depth on why a particular player fits the Patriots' scheme. Here's the project: Using the Great Blue North's position rankings as your starting point, put together a draft board for each position. Please explain why the player fits for the Patriots', how they would use him (3rd down specialist, alternate positions, or specific STs assignment, etc.), and project what round would be best to take him based on your evaluation of team needs. http://www.gbnreport.com/positionalrankings.htm I suggest the GBN rankings as a starting point, but you are welcome to "scout" other sources and use their assessments in your supporting notes (links and quotes are encouraged to help feed our draftnik hunger). Updating your post with new data is also encouraged (combine/pro-day results, etc.) please use a new color with each update to help folks spot the changes. Remember, BB likes to know what a player can do for the team, not so much what they can't do. We have 11 weeks to play around with the prospects - I am starting with DL and OC/OG since combine results shouldn't effect their rankings too much: Week 1: DL (Base 3-4 DEs and NTs) Week 2: OC/OG Week 3: WR Week 4: CB Week 5: LB Week 6: TE Week 7: OT Week 8: S/STs Week 9: RB/FB Week 10-11: Put together a final board based on your position boards. April 29 - draft day!
