    We have around 10 picks or so and some will not make the team.
    What do you think about Leak as a late rounder? I know he is not big but he is not a bad passer and could be a backup.
    He has that Florida connection that BB has with the Gators.

    Leak is more of a drop back passer then his counterpart Troy Smith, he does a better job of finding throwing lanes which would make him the better of the two for the Patriots' offense. He'd be a consideration in the late rounds, but would probably be a better choice as a UDFA brought into camp for his arm. It gives him a fighting chance to make the roster, while expending the pick on a more likely prospect.

    At least he wouldn't have to get familar with the WR corps.

    For a #3 QB I would take anyone would could come in and not throw INTs. I wouldn't mind bringing in someone like Toby Korrodi who is has serious potential after a few years.

    He might be a conversion project.

    Leak is too small and he doesn't have the arm strength to play in the pros. I hate to say it but that's how he looks to me.

    I have read many opinions stating this kid may not even get drafted. Kind of feel sorry for him if he doesn't, but.... then again football did earn him a free education and a lifetime of football stories.

    We could convert him into a clone of Flutie!
