    I think that this guy is one player that will be on the Pats radar come draft day. BB and Pioli love there Georgia boys, and Blue is defiately a heck of a player. Didn't play that well in the BCS game against WVU, but then again who did for most of that game for Georgia. He'll be a first day pick more than likely. What do you guys think?

    Blue is a heck of a player who didn't play well in many games this year. I watched two other games and I wasn't impressed by him or Minter. Blue does't like to wrap up. He likes to hit a guy and hopes that the guy loses his balance and falls.

    Also, how does a free safety go his entire college career with only 2 interceptions? Blue didn't have an interception until this season.

    From a phyical standpoint, Blue would be an ideal fit to replace Rodney long-term. He's big with CB speed and is a fearsome hitter. Problem is he is a liability in coverage. I personally like him, but as an early 3rd round guy.

    Blue stuggles a lot in coverage. He has very poor ball skills, hence the lack of interceptions. Not very instinctive.

    However he could still make a team as a special teams demon. If he's taught to tackle a bit better, get his head across the torso and wrap up, he could be very productive on ST.

    I like him. He's a physical presence back there, and a good leader on that Georgia defense. They're saying teams like the Colts with faster LBs will look to convert him, but I think he can progress into a very good strong safety. If we don't take DB with our first rounder, I'd look into taking him in the 2nd.

    Beli quote


    Wasn't here a Belichick quote that went something like..." Don't give me a defensive guy who can't tackle. What would I do with him?"...

    Being down here in Dawg country, I get to see all the games, (becuase if you are not watching the game, you will be very lonely). Blue is one of those keep your head on a swivel players (like Rodney) that every reciever must think about. He hits like a truck! and Gerogia players seem to adapt well to the Patriots systems.
