    Some I like, some I don't and some are sarcastic

    24. New England (from Seattle)- Anthony Spencer, DE/LB, Purdue
    28. New England (12-4)- Brandon Meriweather, CB/FS, Miami-Fl
    **********************************************

    24. New England Patriots - Reggie Nelson, S Florida
    The Patriots are extremly thin at LB due to age and injury and they also
    need CB help although they can address that need with their many
    other draft picks (star-in-the-making A. Samuel only cost them a fourth-rounder).
    However, R. Harrison is at the end of his career and coincidently
    Nelson is the best available player. He will add an instant spark to a depleted secondary.
    he prototypical CB at 6'1" 200 lbs. with speed and coverage skills to go with it,
    so he can help fill that gaping hole in the Saints' secondary.

    28. New England Patriots - Sidney Rice, WR South Carolina
    Caldwell dropping passes throughout the season and post-season may have
    cost the Patriots another Super Bowl trip. Rice may not be ready to start from
    day 1, but he is an amazing physical talent and by season's end will develop into their best receiver, just in time for the playoffs.
    *********************************************************

    24.
    New England Patriots McCauley, Marcus, CB Fresno State
    The Patriots under Belicik have always had good CBs, starting with Law
    and now Samuels. Unfortunately ,Law became a FA and left for the Jets,
    could Samuels do the same. Many teams would love to land a player like
    Samuels and plenty have the money to do it. We all know Pats will not cough up the maximum amount of money like Deion Branch. So what's beliciks solution? Draft another outstanding CB. McCauley is a ball hawk and a great tackler. Side Note: 2nd String CB Randall Gay is also a FA.

    28.
    New England Patriots
    ***Brandon Siler, O/ILB, FLordia*** The Patriots LBs are againg. Bruschis name did not come up once in the 2nd half of the Colt game. They need to bring in young Siler he shows alot of potential. He is also one of the greatest collge leaders I have ever seen. The Patriots are all about leaders as they probably have 10 of them. Belicik loves players like this. He will give up an arm for Siler
    ****************************************************

    24 New England Patriots: Aaron Ross, CB, Texas
    An insurance policy just in case Asante Samuel leaves via free agency.
    Aaron Ross has seen his draft stock rise thanks to a great Senior Bowl week

    28 New England Patriots: Dwayne Bowe, WR, LSU
    I guess the Patriots got what they deserve. If they would have just paid
    Deion Branch his money, Reche Caldwell wouldn't have been on the
    field that often
    *******************************************************
    24 New England (from Sea) - Leon Hall, CB, Michigan
    NE hopes they get just a portion of what they landed with the
    last Michigan corner they drafted.

    28New England - Buster Davis, LB, Florida St.
    Height is a concern, but can really clog running lanes and find the football.

    *********************************************

    24 NE (via Sea) Patrick Willis ILB MS CB, ILB, S

    28 NE Daymeion Hughes CB Cal CB, ILB, S

    Scratch Sidney Rice off the board. There's no way we're taking another WR who's not ready in the early rounds.

    I like Siler from Florida, I think he could move to the inside LB

    Today's mock ...Anthony Gonzalez ??? I hope not

    24. New England(from Seattle): Marcus McCauley CB Fresno State. A really raw prospect from a Belichek disciple (Hill). If they can keep Hobbs and get Gay back, McCauley will get to sit and learn from one of the greatest defensive staffs out in the league. A boom/bust prospect.

    28. New England: Anthony Gonzalez WR OSU. A really polished WR who can play either Flanker or split end. Fills a major need for the Pats.

    As usual, national mocks are clueless with comments like the one about Caldwell somehow costing us a Super Bowl appearance. That guy helped solidify that receiving corps. I don't know what we would've done without him. Idiots.

    bottom line...i would cry if hte pats took sidney rice or gonzalez...NO 1st round WR please! although i wouldnt be dissapointed with Bowe to be honest...dido with johnson Jarratt and Ginn (NO GONNA HAPPEN)...
    keep this in mind though...the 1st round is a place to draft players that are going to be ready to peform in the 1st few years...drafting a player that needs 3+ years to develop isnt going to cut it financially because we are paying big bucks for these guys.. thats why i think BB/SP have drafted guys (DT,DE,RB,OL) in the first round recently...they are ready to play pretty much day 1...they dont need to memorize as many schemes or anything, pretty much all of them just run as fast and hard as they can go for as long as they can (you know what i mean) while CB,S,LB,QB requires more learning..just a thought

    gonzalez, a projected 3rd rounder....taken in the 1st round.....

    just shows how clueless this guy is, whoever made this mock should actually do some homework, instead of just picking out names they heard over the college season....yeah gonzalez is good, but not 1st round good, not 2nd round good, will never be "taken by NE in the 1st round good"

    This happens every year. We pick #24, you would think only 23 guys could be gone. But there'll be about 35 who will NEVER be there at #24.

    Rob Rang of NFLDraft Scout has the Pats taking

    #24: Amobi Okoye
    #28 Anthony Spencer

    In his mock, Willis, Merriweather, and Griffin are still on the board at both 24 and 28.

    What is intriguing about Okoye is that he's 19. Meaning that he may still have a growth spurt left in him. However, I just don't see the Pats spending a pick on a D-lineman who sits on the bench. Though Okoye could free up one roster spot by eliminating both Hill and LeKevan Smith.

    I queston Rang's reasoning, though, because he has the Pats taking Okoye to keep him away from the Jets. I just don't see that happening.

    Me neither. By most accounts Okoye will be taken in the 5-15 range. Unless there's dissatisfaction with Wilfork's play, I don't see why you'd trade up to get Okoye. I don't thik Okoye fits in as a NT in our system either. His measurables are 6-1", 317 lbs. which are generous numbers.

    Were those the measurables from the Senior Bowl?

    Also, beng that he is 19, he may still have a growth spurt in him. I think he could fit into the Pats system if he can hold the point of attack by getting better leverage on the center.

    At the Senior Bowl he weighed in at 6'2", 287 lbs. Those other numbers are from his official biography at the Louisville Cardinals website.
