    Here's a link with the rosters. A couple of guys who might be on our
    radar

    John Greco - T - Toledo. Supposedly had a great week of practice.

    Jonathan Goff - ILB - Vandy Could be our young legs at ilb we're looking for.

    Kenny Iwebema - DE/OLB - Iowa Later round prospect.

    Jamie Silva - S - BC Local prospect. Playmaker in college.

    Dwight Lowery - CB - San Jose St Another guy supposed to be having a good week of practice. I'm sure our buddy Pat Hill has some input on him. Same league.

    Ahtyba Rubin - NG - Iowa ST. We don't really have a backup for Vince Wilfork. But, he could be the guy. 4th round where he is projected could be where we look to fill that position.

    Trae Williams - CB - S Fla. - Over shadowed by Michael Jenkins but some think he might be a better pro.

    Allen Patrick - RB - Oklahoma - Late-rounder. Could make it.

    Frank Okam - DT/NG - Texas - Doesn't seem our type but who knows.

    Don't know if they're on the Pats radar, but these two play positions of need, and from some reports, deserve an extra look-see. And refreshingly -- they're not #7 candidates. :cool:

    i saw Williams allow like 3 catches on 1 drive alone . wasnt impressed. closing speed wasnt very good..hes small. how could he make a better pro than Jenkins? Trae is a career nickelback if hes ever gonna be productive

    Good. We need opinions from observations like yours in order to weed out the prospects. Beats relying on profiles...which is why I don't.

    if were looking for a CB in the 2-3 round range..Dwight Lowery is 3x better than Trae Williams. Hes a ball hawk..wont burn up the track with the 40 but he's a good prospect for a zone D and he really finds the ball and picks it off

    I agree. Best receiving back in this years draft, runs hard and will block. Could take faulks role in a year or two. Must bigger version of Faulk. A steal in the 4th (could be third).

    Did a quick search on Cory Boyd and hit a Red Flag right away.

    "Cory Boyd Suspended"

    I like the size, 6-1 217, and the production in the passing game though.
    If his character/work ethic issues are answered positively, then I wouldn't mind seeing this guy with a 3rd or 4th round pick.
