    It looks like the Patriots will have a great chance to get a very good defensive player or offensive lineman next April.

    Yup and those are just the seniors. How nice would Curry or Orakpo look in a Pats uniform?

    Regardless of whether or not we make the playoffs, I think thee are some defensive jewels to be had in the bottom third of the first round of this year's draft.

    With the second round draft pick from the San Diego Chargers, the Patriots could possibly trade up in the first round to select Rey Maualuga, ILB from Southern California.

    I'm starting to think that with the successes of Mayo and Guyton, and Andra Davis looking like he'll be cut from Cleveland, that Maulauga isn't a big priority for us anymore. If he's there when we draft, great. But I wouldn't trade a second round pick to get him.

    this might be another year to trade out of the first round and stock up thosse #2's

    many juniors will declare because of the 2010 season...

    Speaking of LBs, I caught Pitt's last two games, and if MLB McKillop didn't make every tackle, it was pretty close. I think he's going to measure a little short, but I think his productivity is well worth a day two pick.

    He's a tough, smart football player. Coachable which should make up for what he's lacking.

    If NE played a Tampa-2 defense, yes. I like the kid, but like McKenzie of South Florida, I have questions about his ability to take on OL consistently, the Pittsburgh defense kept him clean, it's harder to project him in BB's D.

    True enough but after Mayo, I'd say my eye has been opened more to the intangibles of a player than it has in the past.

    Yep. If you're instincts are good enough, you can beat the blocker into the hole. For a rookie, Mayo is very impressive. I agree McKillop isn't the ideal 3-4 backer, but I definitely think he's productive enough to warrant a second day selection and see what he shows.

    I am more and more intrigued with Curry. Love his leadership skills. IMO, one of the best LB in the draft.

    Lot of LBs on Mayock's list... which is a good thing since that will push some guys down to where we'll be drafting.

    This time of year I always start getting excited about some guy who feels like a perfect fit, like Paul Posluzny or Corey Webster, only to have the braintrust pick a player I had totally taken off my board... like Meriweather.

    So, I'm going to stop doing that... although Taylor Mays sure looks like a good solution to our Rodney Harrison situation, doesn't he? (No, stop... no, really)

    Yup, but will he last to pick #24?

    Here's hoping he falls. I mean Detroit needs a qb, St. Louis OT or QB. KC could go LB but they have Johnson and may ship LJ out of KC. Seattle Could go QB as well and OL. Browns need secondary with the potential loss of Sean Jones to free agency. Bengals need a running back OL. I think with the hype machine of Laurenitis and Rey from USC and the deep talent. There are going to be a lot of potential falling to us.
