    The order always depends on comparative value. I suspect that we would all be reasonably fine if we used our first five picks for






    And we would be fine if we sign a wide receiver instead, and then subsituted an inside linebacker.

    I would argue for placing priority on RB. We really need to take the pressure off Brady. These days other teams are just zeroing on Brady. Their D sets don't even respect our running game, and rightfully so.

    This team's biggest needs are at DE, multiple LB positions and/or roles, WR and TE. There's also more need for an OG than an RB. Drafting a running back high in this draft would be a poor use of available resources.
  4. It's hard to chose because we don't know how the cards will fall. But, I'll take a crack at it.

    1. OLB or just a pass rusher
    2. WR
    3. RB
    4. ILB
    5. OT/G

    I put more blame on the offensive playcalling. I think the Pats were way to predictable last season. I think we could use a fresh face at RB, but I dont see a big difference with whats out there right now. FA is slim, and is there a huge difference with a 1st rounder (Spiller or Mathews) and a mid rounder (Tate)?

    WR (even if we sign someone, I wouldn't mind seeing someone who can develop down the road)

    Toss up between ILB and TE

    Obviously the way the draft goes would change this but if it all fell and we could have our choice of need at any pick I would want

    1st RD a RB to take pressure off Brady and the WRs and to kill clock in the 4th so protecting the lead in the fourth doesn't fall only on the D. I have my heart set on Ryan Matthews.

    1st 2nd RDer a OLB we need an OLB who can produce a pass rush

    2nd 2nd RDer a 5-technique D-linemen

    3rd 2nd RDer a OLB We need an OLB who can produce a pass rush. we need this so bad I say try twice there are 2 starting OLBs and in our best days we had 3 or 4 guys who could play well at OLB.

    1st 4th RDer WR or TE - something that can be a pass catching option. I don't think the need here is for some outrages talent like many thought we needed Boldin but we do need something because we have a lot of question marks at the position between Welkers injury and Tate's developement and not having a back up to Crumpler.

    I think we should draft another pass rushing OLB instead of a WR.

    I'm sorely lacking in knowledge of the college players this year, but the positions I am most interested in:


    LB of any sort.

    I'm nowhere near as low on Guyton, or the receivers as most seem to be. RB I've very little interest in.

    I agree, this would be good.

    Trade #22 for SD #28 and #92. (They'll accept if Best or Spiller is there, and its equal based on value chart).

    #28 Jared Odrick (will play the 3-4 DE, a big need).

    #44 Ricky Sapp (OLB)

    #47 Damien Williams (WR)

    #53 Dennis Pitta (TE)

    #92 Ben Tate (RB)

    1. OLB or just a pass rusher TWO
    2. WR TWO We have Moss and ?
    3. RB - One who can break one for aTD every so often.
    4. ILB
    5. OT/G We passed on 4th and 2 says it all.

    Don't see Sapp lasting until 44,Late 30s at best

    Last year our problem was more on Offense, than D.. but do want to start that argument again...

    I would go with the best RB @ 22... then go with the best available DE's and OLB's with the seconds..

    I love your order. I am still banking on ( Maroney to Washington for x).

    I'd be extremely happy with this draft. If TE Gronkowski was avaliable at #53, I'd go with him over Pita. Both Odrick and Sapp are questionable at the spots you have them. Very possible both could be gone. But also possible they will still be there.

    I agree with your assesment except I wouldn't go with Best RB at 22 I really only want Matthews as far as a RB in the first but he is the player in this draft that we can resonably get that I want the most.

    Top-tier draft needs, IMO:

    DE and OLB
    RB (bruiser)

    Why not the others?

    WR -- the biggest need is until Welker returns, and relying on a rookie for that is a wild gamble. And in Tate, Edelman, and even Stanbach we have some young ones being developed.

    ILB -- We often don't need two on the field. That makes Mayo/Guyton look not-ridiculous. And McKenzie is our rookie.

    RB (speedster) -- I still have hopes for Maroney, and for Faulk's longevity.

    P -- a top-tier need, but not a top-tier pick.

    I wish more people would realize what you are saying about WR.

    And who do you expect to develop to replace Moss in 2011: Edelman, Tate or Stanback?

    #22 - Jared Odrick. Truly a beast that is good against the run and can get to the QB. While I think you could possibly trade down to a late first and still acquire him, I would not fu*k around with that scenario. Anyone from the Cowboys, Jets, Colts, or Chargers could get him. IMO, stay put on this pick, he is DEFINITELY worth it.

    #44 - Jerry Hughes. While he doesn't possess the height that Bill wants, he is an excellent pass rusher, something we haven't had in a while.

    #47 - Damian Williams. All around great receiver. Could eventually be Moss' successor and would provide another weapon for Brady (Moss, Welker, Edelman, Tate, Williams = sick)

    #53 - (Trade) Greg Olsen. Chicago is pretty desperate for draft picks since they don't happen to have any in the first 3 rounds, so getting Olsen with this pick would be a steal. Has a pretty affordable contract, another deadly slot/outside guy, and is vastly better than any TE you could get in Round 2 or the entire draft for that matter. First round talent for a second round pick. Sold!

    That's how I would use our first four picks.
