Thanks, based on this list who do you like for the Pats. Say that SF picks between 15-20.
If this is the ranking , these are the ones that catch my eye:
13 - *DeSean Jackson WR 5-11,165 California
17 - *Calais Campbell DE 6-7, 282 Miami
19 - Sam Baker OT 6-4, 310 USC
20 - *Vernon Gholston DE 6-4, 260 Ohio State
22 - *Alex Boone OT 6-7, 325 Ohio State
23 - #Quentin Groves DE 6-4, 255 Auburn
Damn that misisng 1st rounder hurts, a couple of nice LBs in the range.
*James Laurinaitis LB 6-2, 245 Ohio State
*Rey Maualuga LB 6-2, 250 USC
Out of the guys your mention, I think Gholston could be a very good OLB for us, and Laurinaitis and Maualaga could fit in. I really think we need to draft a CB though, so my pick right now would be Ikegwouna or Zenon. Unfortunately, it's not shaping up to be a great year for CBs.
I think the same way, the way it is shaping up I see OLB or OT being taken. CB is not top heavy but we might be able to get good players in round 2-4.
Justin King (Penn State) and Malcom Jenkins (Ohio State) could be high picks and are worth watching.
Something else I just thought of.. I think if the SF pick is top 15 then the contract can be 6 years. Irregardless of the position having a potential starter under control for 6 years (like the good old days) is pretty nice.
I think we go cb. Even, if we sign Asante. Hobbs will be a free-agent after the 08 season. I hope we sign one of them, and draft a corner to replace the other. I've seen all of the PSU games. Even though PSU defense has been good. J.King is not having a great season. He seems to be in good position when covering a receiver. But, doesn't react well when the ball is in the air.
He could leave after this year. But, he's not having a stellar season. Dan Connor on the other hand. Has been having a sensational senior season. He's A little bigger than Poz and might be a good fit for us.
We have to reload at CB sometime soon. I think Samuel and Gay are leaving this offseason and if Hobbs follows in 2008, we are going to be hurting back there.
I watched the kid from Kansas, Aquib or something like that and was not impressed. I also was not impressed with the kid from Wisconsin, Igewanue or something like that.
So far the only CB that I have been really impressed with thus far is Lowery of San Diego State.
According to Miguel's site, Hobbs is signed through 2009.
My bad. Miguel does have Ellis signed thru 09. I can't believe we got a 3rd round pick to sign for 5 years. I'd be looking to fire my agent if I were him.
I guess it all depends on Asante. We'll know by draft day whether we will have kept Asante or not. If not, we need a cb. But, if there aren't any corners worthy of a high one. We could always take a lb or ol. Or, trade down until we pick where cb would be worthy of that selection.
