PHEW!!!... I must have done 20 mock's already...so enough already. I kept tossing them because they all were a Little off the wall. So this mock, full of many athletic guys that have upside and are hungry....very,very hungry. I wasn't thinking of Round-Need when making any of the picks. Need in terms of we need a rd1 RB or CB...nope I picked who would be good value for each round with an eye to the future for all of them. Some of them may be reaches but it's the system that's important. Whoever plays this year...it will be a bonus. Okay...I can take the heat...START YOUR ENGINES. I really expect Belichick to trade 3a for a #2 next year. If he does then 4b becomes...Martin Nance WR Miami(Ohio) 1 - Ernie Sims LB Sims becomes a situational Pass Rusher this year While he is prepped to become SS backup/starter in 2007. 2 - Jonathan Joesph CB / Richard Marshall CB. Belichick is going CB here...I have no doubt. He will make a move-up for Joseph if he slides to rd.2 If Joesph is taken in rd.1 expect BB to do what it takes to get Marshall. 3a - (see above) If he doesn't trade it then: Derek Hagan WR or Jason Avant WR...Hagan 1st if both there. 3b - Jerrius Norwood RB Belichick did his homework early on Jerrius...he'll be a Patriot groomed to replace Faulk initially. Many are looking at the big names for RB...but no way Belichick risks losing Dillon's influence on the team. The big guy will come next year,especially if BB has 2-#2's on his plate. 4a - Clint Ingram OLB...Clint gets groomed at ILB for the Patriots. Clint will become a good run stopper and cover man for the Patriots. ILB's who can cover are a must on Belichick's defense. If you can't cover and get sideline to sideline you are useless. 4b - Joe Toledo - OT...Joe is a slight project but will keep Neal/Kaczur on their toes. Also provides depth at RT if Kaczur goes to LT due to Injury of Light again. 5 - Terna Nanda - OLB...All purpose defensive player for the Patriots. Nanda can rush the QB, backup at ILB if he can bulk-up. Will be a great ST for a rookie at the least in 2006...strong as a bull. 6a - Belichick will try to grab a #5 next year for this pick. If not...he takes: Chris Kuper OG. Belichick loves OL depth...Kuper will be a PS for 06'. He will be developed to play all OL positions as a backup for yr-2. He will compete for more time at his best position in yr - 3. Kuper has enough athleticism to be a steal in round-6 down the line. 6b - Barrick Nealy - QB...This kid is an athlete ala Randle-El. He'l start off as a WR prospect or a PS-QB-too good to leave to UDFA. 6c - Anthony Mix - WR...Mix is a Bull with no fear ..6'4"-235-4.49 (40) Where will he play? But I expect Belichick to go all athletic in 6/7. Why not??? 7 - Nick Turnbull - CB/FS...Where will he play? Another Athlete. Belichick may grab one of the top kickers here. Scifres / Huston / Gostkowski / Hughes...in that order of who is left. Also UDFA...BENJAMIN JONES K...could be better than the top 4. He was one of the very best as a junior but groin problems hurt him. I figure Belichick will grab 3 kickers. 1-Europe...someone he thinks will be our kicker. 2-Draft Pick...camp competition. 3-UDFA...camp competition.
