    If we figure out a way to get Jerod Mayo and Antoine Cason from this draft, I'll be a happy, happy guy.

    Don't see them using 2 third round picks, they're moving around in the 2nd imo.

    Similar to what I was going to post. Freedom now to target specific players. And IMO, we'll be huge players in the heart of the draft coming up...

    so how much do you think it would take to move from 62 to say 40?

    They have three 3rd rounders. No way they don't move into or around in the 2nd.

    Yeah, lets hope he is not like that gangster we got last year in the first. We know how that worked out. :D

    This is one thing I no longer worry about with the Patriots.

    1.) It's too high a pick for Mayo

    2.) How many Tennessee linebackers are excelling in the NFL?

    3.) Clady was available. He's now in Denver. That's a bad thing.


    As I said, I'm torn. I trust Belioli, but I think this pick sucks. My guess is that Belioli's superior knowledge makes this the right move, and that history will prove that. It doesn't mean I have to like it right now.

    Stanley Morgan was a Tennessee player. He did OK with the Patriots.

    Mayock just said something I've been thinking. That the Bill he has been talking to for the last few weeks is more relaxed and energized and focused than he's ever seen him. And as a former player, he knows him. Said he thinks losing the Superbowl freed him up somehow to re-tool.

    Funny - Mayock just predicted Albert to the Bears because they need OL, but the took Williams who he predicted in his mock (although with Albert still on his board they may have made a mistake...). He did say that Albert's HC told him that had he not been injured in TC prior to last season he would have been Groh's starting LT...but they didn't want to make the transition at the start of the season without having been able to make it in camp.

    Considering that probably 3 (max 4) draftees will even make the team, I'd say that something like that might work.

    I can understand feeling that it was high. But if he's the best LB available and they were at 10, why not take him? It's not as if they were going to move back again.

    Just because other players aren't excelling doesn't mean he can't.

    I just moved back to the Boston area after living in Denver for three years. I DESPISE the Broncos with every fiber of my being, and from being there, I seriously think they needed D-Line, not O-line. I enjoy their failure. I want to roll around in it. They will continue to get worse and I love it.

    I can't believe anyone wanted Clady. This OL had one terrible game all year, there was no sense in paying top 10 money for a player we did not need. We NEEDED speed, youth in the front 7. We need a LB who can cover and play the run. Mayo is a run tackling machine and is a player in coverage. Watch high lights, you'll see :]

    I think you are right here........NO ONE HAD MAYO going this high....at best I saw him at 29 for San Fran........at average he was mid second round.....on NFL.com I believe he did not even show up in the list of top 10 LB draftees.......but......like you say......in BB we trust......I would have liked to see us go with Clady....or a top CB......

    You don't have to say you're sorry, and I don't hate anyone who jumped on the Mayo band wagon over the past few days. It seemed like he wasn't all that popular before that point, but that doesn't really matter. I've gotta give Briz some credit for being being on Mayo for awhile now, but Briz also thought Mayo was going to be a second round pick, which is quite different then selecting him at 10th overall, and DRC was Briz's number 1 guy. I personally thought Mayo had a lot of potential, and some of his issues could be coachable, but I still wasn't sure about his fit in NE's defense. Now that he's on the team, I'm thinking he'll be groomed to take over at WILB.

    When I said I still wanted two of Cason, Groves, and Avril, I forgot to add in Flowers, who I also really like. Chevis Jackson should be a good CB for NE later in the draft (third round), too.

    KC just traded with Detroit. Mayock says they will take Albert. They got Dorsey and Albert, now all they need is a QB and a HC.

    Guess the new server has a limited capacity, just like the old one...:mad:
