I could see us drafting zero, one or two defensive backs, but I don't see any real need. For the record I would draft at least one safety because of the value likely to be available at 47, 58. and perhaps even at 89. ========================================== DO WE NEED A CORNER? 1) We are certainly set for 2009. Belichick took care of that with the signing of Springs and Bodden. This board wanted Wheatley to start in 2008 based on his preseason play. Wilhite is a decent nickel and was starting by year's end and was playing solid special teams. 2) I would think that we are set for 2010 also. Wheatley and Wilhite are our developing prospects, and they are progressing. There is no reason to add another youngster. Hobbs will play 2010 unless there is a new CBA. Springs can start or backup as needed. If need be, we can add a veteran in 2010. 3) There aren't any top corners that we just must have. The value is not there since there are no top corners. All will be overvalued. I would expect that six safeties will be better values. I expect there to be a higher valued safeties until our list of six top safeties is exhausted: Chung, Delmas, Johnson, Moore, Smith, and Vaughn. DO WE NEED A STRONG SAFETY? The need is not there. We have a reasonable backup in Williams who is a top special teamer, exactly what we need at this roster spot. DO WE NEED A FREE SAFETY? The need is not there. Springs and Spann are fine as backups. BOTTOM LINE I still see the same value as I did a couple of months ago: Moore and Johnson. Look at the mocks. I still think that they provide the best value and would be solid patriot picks.
