    Are these your own thoughts or did they come from somewhere else?

    I would be surprised if they took a DT with the first pick. I fully expect it to be a defensive pick, but I'd expect them to go LB or CB, quite possibly after trading down a bit lower.

    No plagiarism involved. I think that Ellis may be a stretch to fall but if he does then I think that we take him there. I think that FA will be a bigger role for the DB this off season plus this is just a kickoff mock.

    Reality may be a trade out of this pick but I am assuming that we stay put in this mock.

    We may lose Randall Gay, Chad Scott, and Asante Samuel to free agency.

    For this reason, I hope we draft at least a couple of cornerbacks as

    early picks.

    Ditto. This draft must assume major FA activity at CB?

    Haha, I wasn't accusing you of plagiarism. I was just curious if it was part of a larger mock that projected the other teams, or just your thoughts for the Pats.

    It's also unrealistic. Chevis Jackson in the 5th round? Not going to happen.

    This one I agree with particularly. It seems like a lot of teams are going to be looking for the "Next Hester" going forward, and if you're looking to the draft than I think Johnson is the best of the bunch in that regard. I'd really love to see the Patriots bring some continuity to their kick returns - tired of seeing a different guy back there almost every time.

    I could live with this mock if it happens in real life.

    I don't know why everyone is so down on the drafting of a DL guy. I think Ellis can play in a 3-4 and he was easily the best player at the senior bowl this year and had an outstanding career at USC. If Parcells took him #1, I would not be too terribly surprised.

    Having seen him play every single home game of his college career I can tell you that he is REALLY fast, great hands, makes could cuts, a great KR/PR, and has never gotten into any trouble during college.

    You're only making me want him on the Pats more. I've been saying for a while that regardless of who the first round pick is, this is the guy I want. I think we might have to move up in the second round if we want to get him, since I'm sure there will be many teams looking at him the same way.

    This draft is great. We can just make some corners out of thin air next year :rolleyes:

    I wouldn't be at all shocked if NE went either D-line or O-line, if they stay at 7th overall.

    The Pats are going to make silk purses out of sow's ears

    from Tim Mixon, Mike Richardson, and Antwain Spann.

    Why is it that people knock Richardson? You do realize that the kid had made the team if he hadn't been IRed. He was lining up opposite Moss throughout many of the TC drills and was doing very well, for a rookie.

    I think that Richardson will surprise a lot of people next year. That's not to say he'd going to be a starter. There's a good chance the Pats pick up at least ONE CB in free agency.

    I agree, and considering the CB depth in this draft, we'll undoubtedly add one from that crop. This would give us Richardson/FA/Rookie competing for Samuel's role. And of course add Gay to the mix should he choose to remain (my hope).

    Yea, I too think Richardson could surprise next season, and I liked what I witnessed from him during the 2007 preseason.
