    I believe the Pats need to get younger and more athletic at linebacker.

    It's hard to get young affordable linebackers in free agency.

    Is there any other way?

    BB doesnt really like drafting LB. He prefers to bring in Free agent linebackers. Vrabel, Colvin, Thomas. The only real LB he has drafted that panned out was Tully Banta-Cain.

    I think it involves the Colts signing Rick Demulling somehow....

    Thomas is almost thirty. There must be some way of acquiring players at a reasonable price before they hit 30.

    It's just statistics. We have to get younger.

    If only there were a way..........

    He must truly be an important person to the Patriots.

    He's been on the front page 2 or 3 days.:p

    Tread carefully. You wouldn't want to be relocated against your will, or erased.

    This is the year the Pats will draft linebackers as high as the first round. The Colts exposed the Pats weakness in coverage and lack of overall speed in the AFCCG. Adalius Thomas helps, but the Pats must groom some guys for the future. However, the linebackers that do get drafted, will receive plenty of playing time in the '07 season. ILB Patrick Willis, if available, would be a great choice. Another name to remember, ILB Zak DeOssie out of Brown University. He stands at 6-4 250 pounds, tackles well, has a non-stop motor and ran a 4.58 in his private workouts. His father also played for the Jets, Giants, Patriots and Cowboys. He could be taken by the Pats in the 3rd or 4th round.

    1st round mock:

    #24: LB
    #28 trade out for future picks or Safety

    Interesting. You mean to say that there is some mechanism whereby former college players are able to come play for professional teams? How could such a system work? Amazing.

    Perhaps some form of lottery?

    I only check the main board once in a while and apparently Tom Brady's social life is the only hot topic.

    Yes, I noticed some sort of election going on. I wonder how we'll know who wins.

    I voted for Dillon. I don't think other countries would mess with us if he was President. He'd give Putin the stiff arm.

    Now, if you are on the main forum, look up. no, higher than that! That's it, a little higher now. See it, just above the stickys? Now, click on it. no need to double click.

    Seeing that this tread is Patriots specific, I will guess the NFL Draft?

    Two words: Patrick Willis.:rocker:That solves the problem. Now, Safety both F & S is a different story.

    Who is Patrick Willis, and how would the Patriots go about getting him on the team?

    You mean the d-r-a-f-t thread?

    Haven't we always had one of those? I admit if there was some sort of draft discussion on the main board I'd be more likely to be interested in further checking in that board.

    Now that it's so convenient, people can choose which to post draft stuff in. That's great!

    Unfortunately, this is it. No posting about the draft ever again.

    I wish it was a joke.
