    I realize this was mentioned briefly in the "Pat's Nugget" thread, but thought it warranted specific discussion, without any elephants. He's sticking with the Veteran OLB idea, though he's softened it to include Jason Taylor. So his pick here is Sean Smith (CB).

    Maybe he should play Tennis...
    Seems like a good bet to fill a safety hole whilst adding depth at CB. Not being physical is a definite knock.

    But is he physical enough ? Law was very physical but Samuel wasn't very physical at all; however he did manage to get his guy down so I think below average physicality from a CB who still gets the guy down isn't a showstopper - as a Safety it would be more of an issue.

    Regarding the point of the thread, yeah, I would imagine Peppers and Taylor are hot and heavy for the Patriots right now. One of them with Thomas at OLB with Woods, Crable, Redd and TBC as backups is a nice group. When they moved Vrabel I imagine the plan was to replace him with a veteran.
