    My picks:

    27: SS Mark Barron, Alabama - big hitter for the secondary
    31: DE/OLB Andre Branch, Clemson - 10.5 sacks, 6-4 260, quick
    48: WR Chris Givens, Wake Forest - 4.4 speed, #2 YAC in nation, 1330 yards
    62: CB Dwight Bentley, LA Lafayette - quick, physical corner
    95: DE/OLB Jake Bequette, Arkansas - 10 sacks
    128: DT/DE Derek Wolfe, Cincinnati - 6-5 295, 9.5 sacks

    Obvious focus on improving the pass rush and secondary with DL that have potential to play 4-3 or 3-4.

    27. Mark Barron, S, Alabama - Too much working in Barron's favor here - still a position of need for the Pats, Barron's familiarity working with a Belichick-style defense, his obvious talents, etc.

    TRADE: Patriots trade #31 to the Houston Texans for #58 and a 2013 1st round pick. Call it a hunch... I just think the Texans are going to be looking for an extra 1st round pick this year.

    TRADE: Patriots trade #48 to Miami for #72 and #80.

    58. Bruce Irvin, OLB, West Virginia - Could be a terror as a situational pass rusher from the linebacker position.

    62. Billy Winn, DL, Boise State - Productive, fits the mold for a 3-4 DE, and fills a need.

    72. Chris Polk, RB, Washington - Strong, between the tackles runner who can eat up some of the carries we lost with BJGE.

    80. Brandon Washington, G, Miami - Needs some time to develop, but I'm looking at a time down the road when Brian Waters isn't around.

    94. Chase Minnifield, CB, Virginia - Had a down senior year, but too talented to leave him out there any longer.

    128. Devon Wylie, WR, Fresno State - Yes, we have a million WRs on the roster. But does anyone think guys like Gonzalez or Branch or Ochocinco or Stallworth will stick? I don't. I think Wylie - sort of a Wes Welker Starter Kit - is a great value here.

    27. Kendall Reyes
    31. Trade with WAS for #39, 5th rounder, and their 2013 first.
    39. Shea McClellin
    48. Zebrie Sanders
    62. Brian Quick/Mohammad Sanu/Greg Little - Let BB sort them out in interviews and medical history.
    80-something on a trade up with 93 and the previously acquired 5th rounder Markelle Martin
    ~128. Dequan Menzie.

    If there was a way of getting Reyes, Barron and Hightower in the same mock draft I'd do it. I view them all as potential future starters.

    27 Mark Barron - I wanted to go Reyes here, but Barron is the last safely in this class I view as a long term upgrade as general and enforcer.

    31 Dont'a Hightower - Hoping he has a future outside.

    48 Jared Crick - Usual 2nd round injury value pick.

    64 Chris Polk - I've liked this guy for a while. Punishing inside runner that can stay on in the passing game as a receiver and blocker. Good redzone TD threat in the absence of BJGE.

    93 Chase Minnifield - Again I guy I've had my eye on that is sliding down. Can also kick return.

    128 - DeQuan Menzie. Versatile and physical.

    Here are the six I think the Patriots draft.

    Mark Barron S Alabama
    Kendall Reyes DT UConn
    Shea McClellin DE/LB Boise St
    Josh Robinson CB Central Florida
    Brandon Brooks OG Miami (OH)
    Devon Wylie WR Fesno St.

    Ultimately I see the Patriots making three trades down to acquire more picks ... they ultimately will get three more picks and a pick next year.

    Cody Pearcy WR Huntingdon (AL)
    Ron Brooks CB LSU
    Adrian Hamilton LB Prairie View A & M

    27 + 93 to Philly for 46 +51
    31 Traded to St Louis for 39 + 97
    39 Dont'a Hightower ILB Alabama
    46 Shea McClellin OLB Boise St
    48 Harrison Smith S ND
    51 Brian Quick WR App St
    62 Traded to SD for 80+111
    80 Chase Minnifield CB Virginia
    93 traded to Philly previously
    97 Marvin Jones WR Cal
    111 Derrick Wolfe DE Cincy
    128 Vick Ballard RB Miss St (BJGE 2.0)

    I don't see how half these guys last to the CBS ratings but it is what it is.

    Absolutely agree with that statement ... inevitably, guys I like after round 1 get taken much higher than they are ranked by any of the Draft Rankings (NFL Draft Scout, Great Blue North, Pro Football Weekly etc).

    I like Kendall Reyes, Shea McClellin, Josh Robinson and Brandon Brooks, and in order for the Pats to get them they would have to select them in the late 1st or 2nd round. So from picks 31, 48 and 63 I might see two of the four taken by the Pats. I hit on two last year Vereen and Cannon, but thats only because Cannon slipped to the 4th round because of his diagnosis of cancer. Vereen was taken a round earlier than expected and so wasn't Ridley. Mallett slipped because of off field concerns (Pats we lucky to get him).

    31 + 62 for 21 + 117 (4th)

    21 - Upshaw
    27 - Barron
    48 - Jamel Flemming
    93 - Alameda Ta'amu
    117 - Marcus Forston
    128 - Jake Bequette

    Team still could use a starting 3-4 DE but since we can't get one we get two players who could potentially fill the role in different ways. A run stuffer in Ta'amu and a pash rusher in Forston. OLB and the secondary are greatly improved.
