Prospects I consider worth a 1st round grade right now, of potential interest to the Pats: Prospects Out of Reach - Ndamukong Suh, DE/DT, Nebraska - top 3 pick. Would cost our whole draft to get him. Prospects Worth a 10 Position Trade Up - Rolando McClain, ILB, Alabama - best defensive leader in the draft and fabulous playmaker. Prospects Worth Taking at 22 - Carlos Dunlap, DE/OLB - 6'6" 270# pass rusher with 4.6 speed and great agility. The kind of guy BB is always raving about, if his inconsistency and off-field issues don't take him off the list. - CJ Spiller, RB - best offensive playmaker in the draft. - Dan Williams, DT/DE - a poor man's Haloti Ngata/Albert Haynesworth. - Terrance Cody, DT - an immovable wall at NT. - Brian Bulaga, OT (could also play RG) - could be an all pro RT for us. Prospects Worth Considering With a Small Trade Down - Mike Iupati, OG - would start day 1 at RG, could possibly also play RT. - Jonathan Dwyer, RB - a poor man's Jonathan Stewart. - Jason Pierre-Paul, DE/OLB - raw, but as much upside as anyone in the draft. Excluding Suh, that's 9 potential targets in the 1st round. I've excluded some of the following: - Eric Berry, S, Tennessee - top 10 pick, and safety isn't a position of need - Derrick Morgan, DE, Georgia Tech - top 12 pick, and more of a 4-3 DE than a DE/OLB - Gerald McCoy, DT, Oklahoma - top 10 pick, and not a schematic fit - Joe Haden, CB, Florida - don't want to go CB in this draft, but he'd be worth it if he slipped a bit - Brian Price, DE/DT, UCA - a bit on the short side, but a terrific player - Earl Thomas, S, Texas - top 20 pick, and safety isn't a position of need - Dez Bryant, WR, Oklahoma St. - off field issues, and don't want to go WR in the 1st round - Anthony Davis, OT, Rutgers - immature, and not a good schematic fit - Sam Bradford, QB, Oklahoma - QB not of interest - Jimmy Clausen, QB, Notre Dame - ditto - Russell Okung, OT, Oklahoma St. - top 5 pick, not that big a need - Bruce Campbell, OT, Maryland - pure LT prospect, which is not a need That's 22 guys right there, so the odds are that one of the guys I've listed as worth taking at 22 will be available when we pick.
