First of all I enjoy reading Pat Kirwan. He may not have been a great personnel guy himself, and his "Kirwan Explosion Index" is goofy, but he brings enthusiasm every week and is as good as it gets come draft time for original material. What I find baffling are his mock drafts, which I have been following casually since he began posting them a few weeks back. Several times he has penciled in Ryan Khalil to the Pats at #28. This is peculiar for a number of reasons. First, Kirwan's best buddy is Pete Carroll, and if Carroll ever returns to the NFL it is a foregone conclusion that Pat will be his personnel guru. So Pat knows what Pete thinks, and most likely what Ryan Khalil thinks too. Second, it flies in the face of the Pats signing Koppen to a fat extension. I don't believe this will happen, but I find it intriguing that Kirwan has mentioned this same choice several times. Khalil would be the shocker of all shockers for me at #28.
