    Not sure if anyone caught this on WEEI this morning, but Michael Holley is convinced that the Pats will be taking a particular player in the later part of the first day of the draft.

    He didn't say who (deciding to save it for the end of the show to reveal it), and I won't be able to listen when he does. Can someone who can listen let us know who he says?

    Probably just conjecture and something to fill a slow day, but I'd be curious why he feels so strongly about this inkling.

    Who do you all think it is?

    Lets hope not - not at 7 anyway. Gholston is their man, if he's there - If not trade down and pick up some picks in the later Rounds.

    He did mention it would likely happen later in the day on Saturday, which leads me to believe he thinks they'll either:

    a) trade down to later in the first.

    b) this player's going to be taken with their second round pick.

    If we can get him later great, but I like Mayo much better than Gholston.

    Yea, I agree. Bill's big on value and there's not a whole lot at the top, so if our targeted guy(s) is gone then I see a trade to a team wanting to move up and grab Ryan or Run DMC. Now, if those two are gone (and our guy) then we are in TROUBLE at seven. IMO.

    Really?!?! Wow. Gholston is a freak athlete.

    I respect your opinion and you may be right, but he's not a top 10 pick IMO- However, Bill lives in his own Draft World and based on prior experience, if he takes Mayo high I'll be scratching my head but I will be ok with it.

    They will trade down and draft a right guard with their first pick.

    You heard it here first.

    Well, you can now scratch Mayo off your list of possible Patriots.

    Inside LB from Tennessee. Wouldn't be a bad pick and I always like drafting SEC guys.

    If the plan had been to trade down and draft somebody they really liked, the last thing in the world they would do is let it slip to a reporter. It doesn't make any sense. It would just move this guy up in the eyes of every other team who was interested in that players position....

    When you read in Don Banks article how the Jets are obsessed with whatever the Pats may or may not do it makes it highly unlikely that they would let this leak out.

    :confused:
