    Unless a LB is the next coming of LT and the SF pick puts us in position to take him don't even bother getting excited about any LB prospects because it's not happening.

    Page bookmarked, that is all, see you in 365.

    Yeah, I was quite suprised as was many here. Spencer,Harris Poz,Deossie,Siler to name a few.

    I will bookmark it too,just remember the offseason isn't over yet. Still have June 1st cuts and a player named Al Wilson still out there.

    We were all saying it but yet we all fell into the trap. I'm sure if I search I'll find a thread or two where you thought we might take Willis (even if he had fallen to #24 would we have taken him?), Harris, or Woodley. Some even fell into the Beason trap.

    Well let this be a lesson. I'm sure there will be the same linebacker hype come next year. My advice is just don't get your hopes up. Phillips might be our guy. He's huge for a safety and would make a great SS to pair up with Meriweather at FS.

    I flirted with LB, I think I actually said I predicted we'd take Harris . . . but my overiding, most consistent statement was "I'll believe we take a first round LB when I see it". But, yeah, I had my weak moments too.

    I am surprised and actually concerned that the Pats didn't take a LB until late again. At some point, this is going to catch up to them and hurt them. It did once in 2005 and it could in 2008 if they aren't careful. Especially with all the money they could, potentially, have tied up in receivers.

    James Laurinaitis is everything they look for in a Patriots height weight, playing ability intelligence.

    The guy will be one of the best LB's in the country and to come out if he declares as a junior.
