    They finally simmed the idea I suggested--the Bears trade up to get Matt Ryan, and give the Pats #14 and #45 in return. (Now all I need to do is get them to sim a trade where the Pats get Son-of-Howie :) ).

    1. CB Mike Jenkins
    2a. CB Charles Godfrey
    2b. LB Jerrod Mayo
    3a. OC Mike Pollak
    3b. OLB Bruce Davis
    4. FS DaJuan Morgan
    5. WR Dorien Bryant

    Thoughts?

    Quentin Groves is not even a first round selection in their draft, while Texas RB Jamaal Charles and Illinois RB Rashard Mendenhall are?

    I've had this trade all along in my first two mocks. The problem I think is that Atlanta desperately needs a solid citizen, and with McFadden playing Travis Henry and getting in fights at bars, I now think Atlanta takes Ryan at #3 instead.

    The only possible trade I see out there is if Jerry Jones really wants to trade a king's ransom for McFadden. I wouldn't count on it.

    Ugly draft.

    1) Jenkins isn't as good as Talib or Cason or DR-C, for that matter.
    2a) I think Godfrey would be a reach here. There are other, better CBs that should be available at that point.
    2b) Goff is better than Mayo for the Pats defense.
    3a) Dexter Jackson would be better at this point than Pollak.
    3b) No qualms with Davis
    4) The Pats don't need another free safety. He doesn't seem like a Patriots type player in all honesty.
    5) If they don't take Jackson earlier, then I could see Bryant. Or someone like a Danny Amendola.

    Mendenhall is considered to be one of the best RBs in the draft. Why wouldn't he be in the 1st round?

    Jamaal Charles isn't thought to be late 1st round/ early 2nd round talent.

    Groves is also thought to be the same. Everyone can't be drafted in the 1st round.

    I agree. Dont want Jenkins on the Pats...Hes an incredible talent, but his skillset doesn't fit with the Pats defensive sceme. Cason IMO is the best fit followed by DRC or Talib. I love DRC's speed. He's not his cousin though.

    DRCromartie is the tallest, most athletic, quickest, fastest corner in this draft with the best ball skills. He proved with his great Senior bowl and his athletic dominance yesterday that he's the cream of the crop and the #1 corner.

    Because Felix Jones, Ray Rice, and Jonathan Stewart are all considered 1st round talents as well, and there aren't that many teams with need at RB or with the willingness to take a 1st round RB. Mendenhall will likely be selected late in the 1st round, but Charles is probably a late 2nd rounder. Groves is shooting up draft boards. If he is not selected in the first round (likely the first half of the first round), then something has gone wrong.

    Cromartie's problem isn't his athleticism. It's his lack of production at a small school. With his skillset he should've been tearing apart receivers and quarterbacks at his level of competition, but the numbers just aren't there. However, I heard he had great interviews with the Patriots. It's too bad we don't have the 31st pick anymore, he'd be the perfect guy for there.

    I think the other possible trade out of there is if Sedrick Ellis is there. I think we could get the 12 and 43 pick in the draft from for the 7th and 69th. I don't think Denver would trade 12 and 43 straight up for 7, as the draft chart may suggest, but I like the value of 12 and 43 for 7 and 69, from a Patriots perspective anyways.

    Of course, if Denver trades for Rogers or Robertson, as is being rumoured, then Ellis is likely out of the equation. They could trade up for Clady, I suppose, who fits their scheme well. They could also stand pat for Williams, who protected Cutler's blindside (somewhat) for Jay's last year-and-a-half at Vandy.

    I like this draft, if you trade out Goff for Mayo.

    After watching Gatewood, another Vandy LB, at the combine, I would not mind him as a possibile sixth or seventh round pick.

    I don't think there's a chance anymore that he'd last that long.

    After the combine i think he'll go top 20, maybe even top 15.

    The pats probably won't get him b/c of what always happens.....

    we see guys we would like to have on this team and they have a freakish combine performance and every other team over-values them and picks them higher than that pats want to...

    Is there any chance the pats could get DRC at 7? i just don't see it happening but i want him on our team.

    Then that's too high for him. As I mentioned, despite his great workouts, he just wasn't a consistently strong performer on the football field, at a level of competition where, if he was this future All-Pro, he should have been tearing offenses apart. This wasn't like he was getting beat in the SEC once in awhile. He was getting burned at the DI-AA level.

    Of course, that's not to say that Belichick and Capers couldn't get him to put it all together, but at 7th overall (and with the Patriots' glaring hole) I'm looking for much less of a risk/project, which is what Cromartie projects as at this point in time.

    DRC's stock has skyrocketed after the combine. There's no way he would have dropped to #31.
