    Who shows signs of being a true New England Patriot?,A guy that will blend in with the guys in the locker room,will be media shy and quiet and will help out in doing whatever it takes to help us win as a T-E-A-M?

    The guy can be a player we probably won't be able to draft because he's up high or maybe he's well within reach - It don't matter here-either way

    Who fits best of all?


    My Choice is.....

    Paul Posluszny - He may not be the biggest defender at his position coming out of the draft but from what I see in him He has plenty of heart,plays hard and to the whistle and has played in pain on top of the fact he played at arguably one of the best Linebacker Colleges in the country in Penn State (history says so)
    He will be the kind of guy Bruschi and Zach Thomas have been all these years - Not Big,Not a guy that stands far out on the team but a guy that blends in perfectly,helps win games and does not make stupid mistakes.

    And thats the bottom line -Winning and Desire,I think he has IT

    Paul should still be around at our low round 1 picks

    A Close runner up - Adam Carriker - He won't be anywhere near #24 pick

    Eric Weddle Utah Safety, does whatever the team needs, smart kid who can pick up things quickly. From CBS sportsline.

    Have either Weddle or Pos visited Foxboro, as have other past Pat selectees?

    I like the linebacker from Michigan, the linebacker from PSU, and finally Michael Griffin Safety from Texas. (Actually I like Landry better, but no way he drops to us)

    Yes, Harris would be my guy. Nothing against Poz, Harris looks to me a better fit for the defense with his size/speed blend, and his experience as a 3-4 ILB. He could come in immediately and fill in the Ted Johnson role that has been vacant the past two years. As he matures, he has the speed to develop the coverage ability necessary to become a 3 down linebacker.

    Vrabel/Thomas/Harris/Colvin with Bruschi and Seau in the rotation would be as solid a LB coprs as we've had.

    I think Anthony Gonzalez is a player who fits the Patriots personality to a T.

    Posz - ugh. If the Pats take him, I'll cry. He's not AJ Hawk, fellas. He's a bit too slow and not as effective a playmaker LB, which is exactly what we need - an infusion of youth, speed and athleticism there. Posz gives us ONE of those, and it ain't the latter two.

    Am I the only one who figures we're all going to be saying "WTF?" when the Pats make their day one choices? We've been caught flatfooted almost every time!?!? :confused: . . . ;)

    I see Griffin and Harris as two really good fits in our defense. Staley and Gonzalez on the other side of the ball.

    I agree, I'd much rather have Beason or Harris.

    Agreed, but the question was who is the best team player and locker room presence. Poz has to be up there.

    I'll be happy with ANY premiere defensive guy drafted in the first round..Just as long as we work on LB or CB

    same here, Beason will be the first pick for us...and well needed at that.


    PD,

    To answer the question directly, I think you have to pick Joe Thomas.

    The guy put his career at risk to play defensive end for the team (shades of Troy Brown), and has such a low-key personality that he's going to steer clear of the media frenzy that is the NFL draft in NYC.

    We'll never get him, but that sounds like a Patriot to me.

    I thought Warren was fairly predictable when the run on DL occurred that year, but other than that I am indeed "caught flatfooted."

    Without a doubt, Revis from Pitt. It terms of an on the field fit his strenth is playing man to man and being physical in the running game. Im not comparing him to Ty Law but he is built in that mold, not afraid to step up and jam a reciever and has the speed to recover. Would love to see the Pats move up and grab him. Probably would have to get in front of Cinci at 18.
