    I would love to see Lenard in a pats uniform....I know there is talk about Merriweather off field issuses....If that all under control he would make a good pats hard nose safety...

    A worthy bump. His rankings deserve to be debated.

    Opinions please...

    I'll be beside myself with happiness if he's correct with these.

    Merrieweather, Bowe or Hall at #24.
    Brown, Willis or Hall at #28.
    Gonzalez, Moses, Harris and Leonard within striking distance (small trade up) in Round 2.

    Spencer at #23 is interesting, it validates him being a worthy consideration at #24. If the plan is to move Vrabel inside in a year, as he slows down, Spencer would be an interesting guy to have a year early to learn the spot and start rotating in on passing downs.

    Rarely do I ever stay glued to any one prospect (learned the hard way :( ) -- but Spencer is one who fits in many ways. His value as you've alluded to may be somewhere in the range of our two round one picks. He's a well-rounded player whose strength is vs the run (led the nation in tackles for losses), but also has decent (not great) pass rushing skills. His character and work ethic are both excellent. I'm sure Colvin knows him well -- given their Purdue connection...and will act as a mentor of sorts playing the same position.

    Spencer would clearly be a solid value pick at an obvious position of concern. IMO, he ought to be considered as one of the top 5 Pats Prospects in round one.

    FWIW, Spencer seems to be the early object of desire of Jets fans, too. There's an interesting dynamic shaping up with the Pats at #24 and #28 and the Jets at #25 with the same defensive scheme and some similar needs.

    This calls for a thread in the main forum seeking out our 3-4 competition.

    Can Leonard be a good enough runner to be the big back to spell Maroney ? We already have Mills as a safety value, Byard type; we don't need to spend a #1 pick on another. Now, if Maroney can be an 18 carry guy with Leonard being a good blocker, receiver and 7-10 tough ass carries, then maybe.

    Mills is an experiment, we don't know whether he will be a LB or FB or TE or WR or STs Ace. He has skill sets and background that may allow him to perform in one or more of these. Leonard is a proven RB/FB and an excellent receiver. He would be a dependable complementary runner with Maroney (It would be nice to have one we know will run without dancing).
