    I was hearing on Sirius this mourning that the Dolphins had Harvey pretty high on their draft board.

    Makes you wonder, as BB and Parcells certainly covet the same guys for the LB.

    Maybe he is higher on our board than we think.

    For now I'll leave him behind C.Long, Gohlston, and Rivers on my wish list. But hearing Parcells may have thought highly of him will make me like him more if we do draft him as we have a lot of guys play LB for us who played for Parcells first.

    Same problem with Harvey as with Rivers and Groves.......taking any one of them at #7 seems to be a reach.

    I do not think we are going to find any trading partner unless Ryan is there.

    Seems to me if Long & Gholston are gone - then one of the top DL's will be there and they do represent value at #7 but not need.

    Al of which could lead them to Brandon Albert.

    Is it really a reach to take a guy at seven that might be a better fit for your 3-4 than anyone else available just because experts say he is more in the pick 15-30 range.

    I also have a hard time imagining BB taking a player this high that he has to "Project" into a different position in the pros.

    That being said however, I would not touch Albert, unless I was picking for the Jets. Alberts is not the player people seem to think he is. I think that when BB talks to Al Groh, he will get the full scoop on Alberts. He was not even good enough to start LOT in college. Why are people projecting him to LOT in the NFL. Watch film and quit looking at combine numbers.

    Today's Globe has a draft spotlight on Albert with the title "Brandon Albert, OT"! By all accounts Albert is a heck of a guard, but I don't understand why he's suddenly been appointed tackle.

    As for "projections" in general -- sticking rigorously to that philosophy could mean that you never spend a high pick on an explosive 250+lb pass rusher, arguably the most sought-after type of player there is. So I wouldn't say never, but the risk certainly has to be factored in.

    How high is "pretty high" though? 15 or 20 out of 200 players is pretty high. It's so vague that unfortunately it's not very helpful.

    It's also very possible that the Dolphin's board is not an accurate reflection of the Patriots' board given differing needs (assuming the teams' boards cross-reference need and talent).
