    Ivan fears was speaking.

    Said team is looking for a 3down back. Does not like leshoure. Likes ryan williams and daniel thomas and they also like demarcco murray.

    Someone asked about ingram. And fears reaction is he has to be in a good system but gave the look of disapproval.

    Updating from my mobile so I can't update quickly

    Belichick just got a two minute standing ovation.

    Bill didn't answer questions had to go back to war room.



    Obrien on stage now.

    good stuff op! Wonder what they mean by offense change, maybe more emphasis on the running game?

    The voice of gillette stadium is hosting tonight, dunno his name. Said the Locker pick was a shocker. Said a good player is still falling into our laps. A hint that pats are targeting someone?

    Kiper had him going to the Colts at 22 - I'm not sure if that makes it a reach but given turnover on the OL and the priority of giving Brady time to work his magic and keep him healthy, the only lament is that there were so many other "big names" available.

    But this is probably the lower risk pick - Bill thinks he's got a long term starter.

    Dante scar just spoke. Said he has really good left tackle instincts that they thought would really fit well with our team. He is going to play LT for us.

    No comment on light. Dante seemed really happy with pick, had a lot of positives to say about him.

    there wouldn't be so much turnover on the oline if Krafty wasn't so gd cheap and JUST PAID MANKINS....my guess is "best guard available with #28

    I saw a few fans high fiving from Gillette on NFLN. Any way who cares no one was happy with Seymour pick or McCourty pick and how did those turn out.

    wow, great insight. Thanks for updating.

    After reading up on Solder I thought he was a LT prospect. Very nimble and quick. Interesting to see the Dante already set him there.

    You know they did that for the camera, I don't think any Pats fan was excited as we made the pick, whether or not they thought it was a solid pick.

    Thanks for the updates - I'm shocked the coaches were so honest; I'm hoping for Ryan Williams with 2b.

    I had one out of three. :)

    I found the third down back more telling, it suggests they not only expect Green-Ellis to continue to carry the load, but they are showing some anticipation Eric Kettani will be competitive right away after a two year deployment.

    A few days back I posted a list of the RBs who passed a basic screen for a potential 3-down upgrade:

    I came up with a list which I've since amended slightly. (Note that the screen does NOT assess their actual running talent.)

    Ok I can't hold out my binkie love.

    DeMarco Murray is a stud. He is fast, explosive, and versatile. He blocks, catches, splits out, and runs hard.

    He holds the OU record for career touchdowns. More than Steve Owens, Billy Sims, Quinten Griffin, and Adrian Peterson among others.

    He has averaged 4.8 YPC for his career.

    Career Records at University of Oklahoma

    * All-Time Leader in Points Scored (390)
    * All-Time Leader in Touchdowns (65)
    * All-Time Leader in All Purpose Yards (6,718)
    * All-Time Leader in Receiving Yards for a Running Back (1,571)

    All this through split time and injuries. Speaking of injuries I think the situation is overblown. He has had one major injury (broken patella), and some other smaller ones (hamstring, ankle twist, back strain), but he plays through them. If the pats doctors say he is good then cool.

    Ok before I'm too swept away with my binkie love I'll thrown in the disclaimer that I'm from Norman and I'm a huge OU fan. I've seen every game this guy has played at OU. This guy is more athletic and versatile than Peterson, but not as violent and aggressive. Peterson also had injury concerns coming out of college, as well as people thought he ran too tall.

    Couple highlight videos:

    YouTube - Demarco Murray Career Highlights

    YouTube - DeMarco Murray Highlights - Ultimate Highlight

    Don't know who drafts him but I hope it's a good fit for him wherever he goes!
