    I thought an interesting way to look at this draft and something a bit different to "value" name your top 10 players in this draft that would have an impact on this pats team immediately or over this and next year.

    Mine would probably go

    1. Trent Richardson
    2. Morris Clayborne
    3. Mark Barron
    4. Justin Blackmon
    5. Melvin Ingram
    6. Courtney Upshaw
    7. Dre Kirkpatrick
    8. Fletcher Cox
    9. Quinton Couples
    10. Chandler Jones

    Was very tempted to include Luke Kuechly if we stayed in the 4-3 but if we did i would say a 4-3 like those listed above. Also Micheal Floyd was a consideration too... i guess it's hard to have the definate list and i guess it's probably swayed by my personal likes but i was trying to put them in order of if they were on the team next year, would they start and how many downs would they affect and how much of an upgrade would they be for their side of the ball.

    Interesting topic and harder than it looks.

    1 Trent Richardson
    2 Janoris Jenkins (if ignoring character)
    3 Mark Barron
    4 Morris Clayborne
    5 Dave DeCastro
    6 Fletcher Cox
    7 D. Hightower
    8 Chandler Jones
    9 S. McClellin
    10 Dre Kirkpatrick

    If character is a consideration, add Blackmon or Floyd.
    Poe and Brockers would also be a consideration; immense upside for both those players and maybe should supplant 8 and 9 on my list. Can't decide :)

    I agree it was harder than it looked as i didn't have decastro in there as he wouldn't really surplant waters or mankins this year. But would i take him at 27? absolutley

    just an interesting exercise cause for me it highlights Richardson's value to a team
