    2013 NFL Football Free Agents - CBSSports.com Player Movement

    You must pick exactly four players from this list.

    1 from those ranked 1-25
    1 from those ranked 26-50
    1 from those ranked 51-75
    1 from those ranked 76-100

    Assume none of our current FA (Welker, Talib, Vollmer, etc...are previously signed)

    The combined "ranking" must be at least 200.

    Yes, I realize there are a lot of other factors (cost/cap mostly), but just go with it.

    Here are mine:

    Wes Welker (18)
    Sean Smith (27)
    Ed Reed (67)
    Kyle Arrington (88)

    Strongly considered going DL (Seymour, Dorsey) but ended up heavy DB.

    = 200 (just worked out that way)

    Salary and Cost aside

    1-25 Ryan Clady - Replaces Vollmer and is a stud at T... probably gives us the best tackle duo in the league.

    26-50 Richard Seymour - Adds a penetrating DE/DT across from Vince who knows our system and he doesn't have to be the star here. (attitude aside as this is a perfect world)

    51-75 Ed Reed - Solidifies Saftey with a all time great and veteran presence.

    76-100 Toss up between Leodis Mckelvin and Arrington here Mckelvin for a reclamation project away from Buffalo. Arrington for a guy who knows the system.

    Oh, what the hell...I'll try and go outside the box a little out of boredom.

    Since we are ignoring external factors and assuming this is a one year deal, just BPA for 2013:

    20 DT Desmond Bryant
    32 CB Derek Cox
    57 CB Cary Williams
    94 OT Demetress Bell

    =201

    Then in the draft look to add two wide receivers, a safety, and the best lineman available. Lets say OG Jon Cooper (rd. 1) WR Justin Hunter (rd. 2), WR Quinton Patton (rd. 3). Send the receivers over to Cali for the summer.


    Cox-McCourty-Gregory-Williams (Dennard-Dowling-Wilson nickel and dime)
    Mayo-Spikes-Hightower
    Jones-Bryant-Wilfork-Armstead (Ninkovich-Love-Francis rotational)


    Solder-Mankins-Wendell-Cooper-Cannon (Bell-Connolly-Zusevics options)
    Gronk-Hernandez-Lloyd (plus whoever of Hunter-Patton-Ballard-Hooman)
    Brady
    Ridley (Vereen-Woodhead-Bolden-Demps)

    The weak link in this scenario would be cover LB/safety. Not sure how to cover all the bases though...

    25 Danny Amendola- was tempted to keep welker but I think Welker will want major $$$. Amendola gives a similar skill set is younger and should be cheaper too.

    32 Derek Cox- replaces Talib probably costs less than Talib less likely to blow up in our faces is a similar size.

    67 Ed Reed- veteran safety helps bring on our young team DMc and Wilson get to learn from one of the best while coverage gets an upgrade. This is a 1-2 year lets make a run for Super Bowl again

    92 Tracey Porter- My numbers left me able to pick anyone in the last 25 by chance but I only considered 4 players. Dorsey, Arrington, Mckelvin and Porter. My choice of Porter is simply I think he is an upgrade over Arrington able to play slot and outside corner has had several clutch moment in his career a decent tackler.

    We need to resign or replace Talib and Arrington we can't draft DB's very well so I figured to get them via FA rather than trade a solid quick WR to replace welker I just don't see him taking a team friendly deal. Let Vollmer go draft another OT Scar can make it work and save some cap. Having decided to fill OT via draft left me with a luxury pick I considered Connor Barwin or Ed Reed Barwin seemed like a player we didn't really need we have 3 good LB's but lack a coverage LB which Barwin is not be can play 4-3 DE but we have Jones and Ninkovich plus Armstead is an unknown who looked good up in the CFL but can play inside too. so Reed became my choice I wanted to take a CB in this slot but none of them appealed to me.

    My total=216

    I know you said one from each 1/4 of the list, but a more Patriots way of doing it I think would be to pick either all four from the 25-75 slots, or maybe one from 1-25 and the remaining three from say 40-75.

    When I was looking at the list originally I forgot your 1 from each quarter of the list requirement and I came up with:

    Dwight Freeney (49)
    Brian Hartline (54)
    Dominique Rogers-Cromartie (55)
    Ed Reed (67)
    Total = (225)

    I thought about putting Seymour over Freeney, but Freeney is a bit younger, has a history of fewer missed games, and (as far as I know) has never publicly stated that he would not play for the Pats.

    Jairus Byrd- Need a great Safety Duh
    Osi Umenyiora- Reasons
    Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie- Talib Replacement
    Ted Ginn - #3 Wr/Return man

    200...........Looks like I win

    With this scenario of course we would draft a WR first round

    #51 Jersey

    Greg Jennings
    Sean Smith
    LaRon Landry
    Kyle Arrington

    15 + 27 + 74 + 88 = 204

    Smith, Dennard, McCourty & Landry looks like a good secondary.

    I'd probably roll with this, but I really want Melton.

    So you're expecting the Pats to roll with Gronk, Hernandez, Ballard, and Keller?

    BTW: you can't pick Landry.

    W. Welker - WR - 18
    O. Umenyiora -DE - 39
    L. Landry - S - 75
    T. Porter - CB - 92

    total = 224

    We retain Welker, add pass rush with Osi, hard hitting Saftey with Landry, and a starting CB in Porter. Go WR in the first round, OL in the 2nd. I think with these defensive additions the Pats D would be significantly improved and could actually be intimidating again.

    I guess I'll just have to wait until someone better than Lndry gets cut to push him down to 76...otherwise, maybe give tracy porter a shot

    as for Keller, the pats need a 2nd body to be able to execute the plays meant for hernandez, otherwise there is too much risk for the scheme. If what hernandez does means so much, you need a 2nd guy who can do that....I think Keller would be perfect...between them and the possibility of having woodhead, vereen, and demp, all of who can line up wide....the pats will just kee 1 less WR on the roster

    All true. I guess cap isn't a consideration here, but it just seems like a lot of quid to have tied up at one position.

    Maybe the deepest TE corps in history, though.

    If that's the case, brace yourself for another year of defensive suckage.

    porter would get no guarantees from me since he flopped at denver, but I think he's got something to show worth a 1 year deal....I would not be opposed to bringing arrington back though I think he may cost more

    9. Henry Melton
    49. Dwight Freeney
    67. Keenan Lewis
    88. Kyle Arrington

    There's a starting 3-tech, a situational pass rusher, and #1 and #3 CBs. Get WRs in the draft.

    you add a proven target like hartline, you still have lloyd (I think he would be a pretty good deal if he could produce another 900 plus yard year for 4.9M)....

    based on these 4, my draft in the 1st 3 rounds would consist of a DB (maybe S elam in round 1, OT dallas thomas or kyle long in round 2 and WR ryan swope in round 3)

    I would rather give up one point and take demestress bell(199 total), or drop two spots and grab ricky jean francois(202 total)

    I thought it had to total 200 not be at least 200 sub RJF for justin forsett

    Surprised to see Demetress Bell's name called so often on account of the fact that he's a steaming pile.

    I like this a lot, but given you're set from 36 up I think you can do a lot better than Freeney.
