Draft Daddy: Mock Draft
I had no idea.
I would think if the TE from OK St. falls to 23. We would probably consider him. A.
Smith seems like the guy alot of draftniks are picking for us. We usually go away from
the public perception though. Meriweather was one of the few who many people had
going to us.
Smith is the third CB I've seen mocked in the past week. Still think we may trade down.
Philip Loadholt, Ziggy Hood, Fili Moala and Clay Matthews all going 1st round seems a bit of a reach. Not an effort which inspires me personally.
I think it's safe to assume that all of the highly rated CBs will get a hard look by the Pats.
I would be disappointed with Smith on draft day especially with Pettigrew sitting there, but these draft mocks don't really take into effect the team's long term situation so I'll give them a pass.
The more I look at that list the more I think Belichick just trades out of the 1st round. Except for the usual top 6-10 there really is not much difference between round 1 and round 2 this year. Even round 3 has a good amount of players with growth potential. If we franchise and keep Casell Belichick will want to minimize the cost of the draft ... deferrring picks to next year or rounds 2-4 IMO.
I'd be happy with Smith. He has potential to be a shutdown corner.
If not, keep an eye on Bradley Fletcher out of Iowa. He'll be available in the late third.
Every year somebody says this exact same thing.
