I cant do justice to the full draft class, the way BOR did in his post. But here's one man's opinion on value for the Pats: Grouping #1 - Elite could never be drafted by the Patriots under any circumstance WR Calvin Johnson, magical RB Adrian Peterson OT Joe Thomas, although not a need Grouping #2 - Out of Reach will be gone by #13 overall... out of reach DT/NT Alan Branch, fits our scheme as a NT, which is rare enough DE/DT Amobi Okoye, the kind of guy that BB can turn into a star LB Patrick Willis, I've been hot and cold about Willis, but I cant explain why I'd hesitate. Anyway, he's out of reach. Note: Jamaal Anderson isn't on my board-- dont see him as a fit in our scheme with 1st round value Grouping #3 - Trade up Worth trading to #19 (=#24 + #91), if they fall that far SS Laron Landry, overhyped, but worth it at this point DE Adam Carricker, love this kid and he truly fits the scheme Grouping #4 - Value at #24 solid starter SS Michael Griffin, my favorite DB in the draft hands down, honors student, a star on both D and ST, solid against the run LB David Harris, great fit for the scheme CB Leon Hall, solid value at #24 CB Aaron Ross, reminds me of Hobbs but stronger RB Brian Leonard, I believe in this kid like few others in this draft. Great size, hands, body control WR Anthony Gonzalez, has all the success factors required in a Belichick receiver LB Jon Beason, versatility is key, reads a bit like Jonathan Vilma Grouping #5 - Value at #28 a cut below Grouping #4, but still expect these guys to be quality starters for us by Year 2 CB Darrell Revis, doesn't look as quick as Hall or Ross TE Greg Olsen, yeah, I know S Eric Weddle, way underrated two way player... who else has 18 INTs? LB Paul Posluszny, I dont buy all the negative hype; I heard the same unattributable schlock about Larry Johnson OC Ryan Kalil, although not a need OT Joe Staley, although not a need OLB Lamarr Woodley, should be getting more love as a first rounder OLB Anthony Spencer, athleticism and size Grouping #6 - Interesting, but only in a trade down slightly risky, but have starting potential. Worth a shot in the early 2nd. OLB Tim Crowder, in the McGinest mold LB Brandon Siler, size, speed, attitude, productivity... very underappreciated LB/S Justin Durant, I think BB could play him at SS as a rookie... shades of Don Davis LB Stewart Bradley, size matters... maybe has some Ted Johnson in him OL Arron Sears, versatility counts extra... fitness is my concern FS Brandon Meriweather, wont last long enough for me to think of him as value WR Sidney Rice, I dunno... something about him I like. So smooth, so natural. So, of course, expect BB/SP to draft two guys not on my board. Only one thing I'll bet the farm on: they wont take Reggie Nelson.
