    Quoting patchick here:

    So, here's the rules:

    The Patriots have 11 picks.
    Pick 11 players.

    OK, so now three points of clarification. First, please give first and last name and schools.

    Second, you can change your mind, but only your last entry counts.

    Third, in case there's a tie, there will be exactly two tiebreakers: (1) the match closest to the end of the draft wins (i.e., predicting a seventh-round pick beats predicting a sixth-round pick); (2) if there's still a tie, earliest entry wins.

    NOTE: As an unofficial extension of the contest, if you want to do so, go ahead and name a "second team" of 11 players. [Frankly, I want to see if any of us can do significantly better with 22 picks than with 11. :)]

    TE Chase Coffman, Missouri
    TE Travis Beckum, Wisconsin

    Box, that's scary. My first draft has 9 of your 11. Guess I'd better do some editing. :p

    I wonder if alluding to these two words counts as worthy of infraction. Hmmm... :banned:

    Just one thing- do you think that he might actually go above 23?

    I've thought it a possibility, but I am assured by those more logical and sane than I that I'm merely being emotional. :p

    Still fiddling with my final choices, but didn't want to lose track of the thread! (I'll sticky it eventually, but it will get more attention here for now.)

    Defending my shared title from last year (a whopping 2 correct - Mayo/O'Connell)...

    OLB Michael Johnson Georgia Tech
    S Sean Smith Utah
    OG Andy Levitre Oregon St
    OT Gerald Cadogan Penn St
    DE Dorell Scott Clemson
    DE Kyle Moore Southern Cal
    WR Brandon Tate North Carolina
    CB Joe Burnett Central Florida
    ILB Robert Francois Boston College
    QB Chase Patton Missouri
    RB Marcus Thigpen Indiana

    Plus the Pats get Carolina's 1st round pick in 2010. Interesting that almost half my picks didn't play the position in 2008 that I've listed for them.
