    Patt Ross, C BC

    Anyone know if he got picked up? I heard some grumblings that the Pats should have taken a center with Koppen being a ? coming off an injury and into a contract year (I believe). I was surprised he didnt get drafted and was hoping that the Pats would sign him as an UDFA after the success that BC lineman and Centers in particular have had with the Pats.

    I am really happy about the Roach pick up. Without spending high draft picks between Roach and Mincey they picked up two guys who could contribute and add depth to the LB core. I dont know much about the other guys they signed.

    Interesting all the UDFAs from Florida ....

    Guess BB was doing more than just golfing while he was down there this offseason.

    He doesn't have to invent new ways. All he has to do is be himself.

    Nice, thanks Chris. Loved this bit:

    Brown was dubbed the "Face of Florida Football" by UF coach Urban Meyer for his work ethic, leadership skills and the way he lives his life off the field.

    What a great list. Roach was signed immediately after the draft is clearly a quality pick (some had him in the 4th). The rest are from two programs that bb respects. He knew who to call and who he could get. Other than S, these guys are competing for wide open positions: #7 LB, #8 LB, #9 LB, #5 WR, #6 WR, #4 OT. These guys have a shot. At very least, they will compete for PS positions.

    It would be great if we could sign Dwayne Slay. He said that Rodney is his football role model.

    I can see him flying on ST and making huge hits all over the field. Then he bulks up a little more and is moved ot ILB.

    Mays seemed to be a solid LB from the couple of Irish games I watched. The fact that two LB's who's name I immediately recognize were signed as UFA tells me a lot about the LB depth in this draft. I am starting to feel good about the LB position maybe pre-maturely but nonetheless.

    With either of these packages we are only soft at 1 LB position depending on where Vrabel plays.

    Vrabel Beisel Bruschi Colvin Beisel is the only ? Claridge may jump in there as well. Maybe Calridge stuffing the run on 1 and 2 and having Beisel in on 3rd

    Banta Cain Vrabel Bruschi Colvin Obviously Banta Cain is the ? Maybe someone like Davis moves to the ILB and Vrabel jumps to the outside on Passing downs. who knows.

    But either way the only true weak spot on the D is 1 LB position and overall LB depth. Which can still be solidified by trading or picking up a June 1 cut.

    good signing with Pierre Woods. Woods is a great athlete who could be a good rush OLB in a 3-4.

    I can't wait for rookie mini camp. Pierre Woods was a LB I drafted in Madden because I liked him so much.

    I'm surprised at the enthusiasm shown by forum members for

    the UDFA's that the Patriots have signed thus far. Only one

    of these guys (Fred Roach) has a snowball's chance in hell of

    making the team. None of the others are very highly rated.

    Each year I'm frustrated as the better players are signed by other

    teams. The Patriots apparently don't want to get into bidding

    wars for the better players because their chances for making the

    team are quite poor.
