    A three-round mock to digest as we await the Combine...

    Great Blue North Draft Report

    Pats are projected to select:

    DE Cam Jordan
    OLB Justin Houston
    WR Jon Baldwin
    RB Ryan Williams
    OG Ben Ijalana
    QB Colin Kaepernick

    Great haul.
    The top three could quickly contribute.
    Jordan and Houston could immediately start. A defense featuring Warren-Wilfork-Jordan-Cunningham-Spikes-Mayo-Houston would present a strong front seven.
    Baldwin is a potential #1 receiver.
    Williams would be right in the rotation at RB.
    Ijalana could contribute if Mankins leaves.
    Kaepernick, if nothing else, is a tall pocket passer in the draft who could develop and overtake udfa Hoyer.
    Certainly addresses the needs.

    Love the Jordan pick. Versatility is the key. And he plugs the run with the best of them. Will need to work on his pass rushing skills at the next level. But imo he fits like a glove.

    Houston I like. Can't decide on whether he is a project or not. I'm sure he would help out as a situational rusher at first though.

    Baldwin I hear mixed reviews. Has big time talent if you look at some of his reels. jonbaldwin82.com But from some people who have watched him. Sense of entitlement, took the year off. Motor issues. Doesn't really sound like a Patriot to me. I dont' know how much is true.

    Ryan Williams is way too early. Hate the pick.

    Love the Ijalana pick. Can't see him falling past 60. Getting him at his point is huge considering they passed on OT and G already.

    Colin Kaepernick? No big deal.

    The only two picks I like (since Jordan will probably not fall to us) is:
    Ijalana and Kaepernick.

    Ijalana would probably start out of camp.
    A team like the Pats is just what Kaepernick needs. Good camp competition/insurance for Hoyer and hones his skills while working as a scout team QB.

    I'd be thrilled with Jordan, but I don't think Houston is good value next. You've just added a guy who is going to pressure the QB from a variety of roles -- I'd expect him to be used in both Jarvis Green and Big Willie ways. So at 28, I'd turn to OT, take your pick of Carimi & Sherrod. I'll go Sherrod.

    At 33 the options are excellent: Wilkerson as a long-term Ty Warren replacement, Watkins as an instant starter at guard, maybe Wisniewski at center, or the receiver of your choice. But Baldwin? Eh. I'll scoot down 5-10 spots, adding a 2012 pick. Wilkerson will be gone by then, but I'm happy with Watkins. At #60 I'll make Ras-I Dowling my future safety.

    So that's Cameron Jordan, Derek Sherrod, Danny Watkins, Ras-I Dowling and a future pick through Round 2. Alas, I seriously doubt that Jordan will really be there.

    I like your thinking on this.

    Indeed, I think this mock is an excellent fit for the draft fail thread. Kaepernick is the only one I like.

    Don't like Jonathan Baldwin at all. If they're going to add another WR, I'd prefer to do it through FA.
