    probably denied by the same guys that spread that BB was high on tebow and could see him as a 1st round pick (turned out to be true... just not for us)

    At this point I have to believe that they are high trading back if he drops to them in the 4'th. They have had abundant opportunities to draft him and did not.

    I have to believe that the Patriots would go Ricky Sapp at this point or some other direction totally.

    But they've had abundant opportunities to take Sapp.

    I'd rather go value on Griffen than take the bust that is Sapp.

    Well, he has local connections. He was arrested on Nantucket. (for being too loud- gimme a break).

    Wonder if it was BB who called the cops? ;)

    I can only imagine that Ricky Sapps knee is scaring of a lot of teams.

    I really liked the kid. Thought he would have been gone a long time ago. However, I do think that you are right. It must be a major concern.

    I hope there denying denying it so teams won't steal him. He would be a steal talent wise.

    Or maybe LaCanfora was told by the guys who spread the Tebow rumour that the Pats were on the phone?

    If you read the tweets from the Pats twitter account, they obviously had a trade in mind well before they were on the clock.

    Who cares anyway, the guy is junk.

    As they said there - his own coaches were questioning him, and he wasn't a three down player. Why would the Pats take anyone like that?

    As I've always said, you need to be an impact player on as many downs as possible.

    We are talking, if the rumors are true, a late third round pick. You don't have the expectations of getting an every down player late in the first round. If you can get a solid to great pass rush specialist late in the third, he is an outstanding pick. That said, it doesn't mean Griffen is that guy.

    With a late third and all the selections the Pats have, they could have afford to take a two down player or a player who is a project. Look at Taylor Price. He is a bit of a project who may only only be a #3 WR at best.

    If you are drafted late in the third, you have a fair amount of question marks about you. Otherwise, you would have been drafted already.
