    ESPN - 2009 NFL Draft

    Click on the 32 ranked players, there is actually a pretty good scouting report for each player.

    It's mystifying to me how Laurinitis keeps being ranked so high. I haven't seen it at all.

    It is because he goes to Ohio State and no other reason.
    In fact look at the rest of the list and where they go to college...
    There are only 3 on that list that go to non-powerhouse schools (Connecticut, Mizzou and Cinncinati)
    As the season progresses, as usual, there will be guys like Matt Ryan.
    And then at the combine guys like Gholston and DRC will show up...Happens every year without fail

    Maualuga's profile has me drooling. Monroe's less so.

    I wonder if this list was done prior to the scouts watching the Virginia-USC game.

    I've seen a little bit of his play this season and just never got excited about him. Laurinaitis doesn't do it for me either. Out of the top LBs Cushing is the one whom I thought looked like the strongest "fit" for the Pats - with luck he'll be long gone before the Pats get to pick.

    I hope Maualuga is okay with his knee...

    Thing is he was Top 5 before the injury last night. He may drop, maybe to a certain team playing in Foxboro. Just saying.

    It is what it is, but I don't see the fit, and position of need-wise, I'd still look at the OL picture first.

    I don't see the fit because Laurinitis is a little small for the scheme. In another scheme he might be fine. In terms of need, ILB is an area of concern. Mayo looks to be a solid player for many years but Bruschi is done. Maybe Guyton can be serviceable but it still leaves one open starting position. Maybe BB will shock us and go LB in round 1 two years in a row.

    If Cushing was there I'd treat it as a positive move. I don't know anything about the Wake Forest kid, but watching Maualaga and Laurinaitis leaves my warm and fuzzy heart cool and fussy.

    this was one of the reasons i was so high on drafting DRC last draft, the next draft is loaded with 3-4 ILB, and Cromarties dont grow on trees or come around very often.

    We probably should have taken the stud corner last draft and the ILB this draft but it is what it is.

    How is DRC doing? Haven't followed him at all.

    we get a pic in the 14-20 range.

    The first thing the Pats should worry about is their porous offensive

    line. If they don't come up with a good offensive lineman and a

    blocking tight end, Tom Brady may be spending another year on

    the injured list.

    We need a top flight guard and tackle.

    Look for Dave Philistin. ILB- Maryland. Had 124 tackles last year.

    Could be available in middle rounds. Reminds me (physically) of Mayo.

    He's from my hometown. I'm not a homer or anything:D

    I'll put in an early vote for Brandon Spikes, University of Florida.
    6'3 243 lbs. Good size to man the middle. And he gets his hands on the football, whether it is forcing fumbles or catching interceptions. That's really helpful when your linebackers can cause some turnovers.

    Brandon Spikes' two interceptions leads Florida's defense

    It'll be interesting to see how he finishes out his year. This guy should be in the Pats range (currently ranked #26). The question will be, does BB draft Linebacker early twice, or does he go for a different position? CB/OL/S come to mind.
