    While Donald Brown is a "good receiver" the problem is where to put him on the roster. The Pats aren't going to use Taylor as a FB. They already have Maroney, Faulk, Taylor and Morris. Morris and Taylor are both good receivers out of the backfield.

    I don't see the Pats adding Barwin and Kruger, while ignoring the O-line.

    Version 5.0 just showed up on nfl.com a few minutes ago, but it's only a 1 round mock (plus picks 51 and 59 for Dallas and Carolina, who don't have a 1st round pick). He does have the Pats taking Matthews at #23, but I'm not sure where the 2nd round picks listed came from. Link?

    Would be fine with me. O-line can be addressed in round 3-4, along w/ Safety

    This guy has been on the Peppers wagon since his first Mock (or maybe second). He may have even started all the fuss before Carucci dove on it like the Fat Boys on a hot chick covered in doughnuts.

    So much yak about Barwin I'm starting to believe it.

    Hm. I concur that I want to see a day one safety, personally.

    I can live with these picks but it will not happen. I've been saying for a while now our 6 top 100 picks will become 4 this year and 1 next year...... I have a "hunch" that keeps me up nights, but that's another story........:cool:

    I'd be happy at the thought of getting 2 if not 3 LB's, (not sure if they'd want to convert Krueger) who would provide adequate depth and competition. Everyone wants to be younger at the position obviously, so I wouldn't mind this outcome at all. Donald Brown is an absolute burner at RB, and could be what we expected from Maroney. This scenario could provide us the best of everything, especially if we addressed the safety and o line picks in round 3 or 4. I'm getting antsy, and am sooo looking forward to the last wkd in April:)

    Silly me. They've but the 2nd round picks for each team under the 1st round picks, which makes it hard to figure out the actual flow. From what I can tell:

    1 - Detroit - Jason Smith, OT
    2 - St. Louis - Eugene Monroe, OT
    3 - Kansas City - Brian Orapko, DE/OLB
    4 - Seattle - Matt Stafford, QB
    5 - Cleveland - Aaron Curry, LB
    6 - Cincinnati - Andre Smith, OT
    7 - Oakland - Michael Crabtree, WR
    8 - Jacksonville - Mark Sanchez, QB
    9 - Green Bay - Malcolm Jenkins, CB
    10 - San Francisco - Jeremy Maclin, WR
    11 - Buffalo - Everette Brown, DE
    12 - Denver - BJ Raji, DT
    13 - Washington - Tyson Jackson, DE
    14 - New Orleans - Chris Wells, RB
    15 - Houston - Brian Cushing, LB
    16 - San Diego - Rey Maualuga, ILB
    17 - NY Jets - Josh Freeman, QB
    18 - Chicago - Peria Jerry, DT
    19 - Tampa Bay - Aaron Maybin, DE
    20 - Detroit - Robert Ayers, DE
    21 - Philadelphia - Knowshon Moreno, RB
    22 - Minnesota - Percy Harvin, WR
    23 - New England - Clay Matthews, OLB
    24 - Atlanta - Evander Hoot, DT
    25 - Miami - Kenny Britt, WR
    26 - Baltimore - Darius Heyward-Bey, WR
    27 - Indianapolis - James Laurinaitis, ILB
    28 - Philadelphia - Michael Oher, OT
    29 - NY Giants - Hakeem Nicks, WR
    30 - Tennessee - Vontae Davis, CB
    31 - Arizona - LeSean McCoy, RB
    32 - Pittsburgh - Eben Britton, OT

    33 - Detroit - Clint Sintim, LB
    34 - New England - Connor Barwin, LB :):):)
    35 - St. Louis - Alphonso Smith, CB
    36 - Cleveland - Louis Delmas, S :(:(:(
    37 - Seattle - Darius Butler, CB
    38 - Cincinnati - Alex Mack, C
    39 - Jacksonville - Eric Wood, C
    40 - Oakland - William Beatty, OT :(:(:(
    41 - Green Bay - Ron Brace, DT
    42 - Buffalo - Brandon Pettigrew, TE - I don't see him slipping this far, personally
    43 - San Francisco - Sean Smith, CB/S
    44 - Miami - Larry English, DE/OLB
    45 - NY Giants - Shonn Green, RB
    46 - Houston - DJ Moore, CB
    47 - New England - Donald Brown, RB
    48 - Denver - Jarron Gilbert, DE
    49 - Chicago - Brian Robiskie, WR
    50 - Cleveland - Asher Allen, CB
    51 - Dallas - Duke Robinson, OG
    52 - NY Jets - Derrick Williams, WR
    53 - Philadelphia - Chase Coffman, TE
    54 - Minnesota - Max Unger, C
    55 - Atlanta - Michael Johnson, DE
    56 - Miami - mysteriously missing from this mock; no pick assigned
    57 - Baltimore - Patrick Chung, S
    58 - New England - Paul Kruger, DE
    59 - Carolina - Cody Brown, DE
    60 - NY Giants - James Casey, TE
    61 - Indianapolis - Fili Moala, DT
    62 - Tennessee - Ramses Barden, WR
    63 - Arizona - Andy Levitre, OG
    64 - Pittsburgh - Jarius Byrd, CB/S

    Missing from the 1st day:

    - William Moore, S
    - Jamon Meredith, OT
    - Sen'Derrick Marks, DT

    Among others.

    I'm not particularly impressed with this draft. I can understand Matthews and Barwin if you believe Matthews can play SILB, but Kruger too? And he seems more like a 4-3 DE than a 3-4 OLB, and is way too small for a 3-4 DE. Donald Brown is a nice back, but we don't need a 1st day running back. And no safety? Take Jarron Gilbert at 47 and William Moore at 58 and you have a decent draft, though I'd prefer Beatty, Barwin, Gilbert and Moore myself.

    I agree that BB will do some dealing, and that we'll most likely end up with four picks in the first three days. But there's no way I see them drafting Clay Matthews at 23. He's talented but a better value in later on. I can see Barwin at 34 with no problem. I like Brown, but unless they're planning on cutting someone it's hard to them taking him. I'd like to see them draft a tackle and an ILB.

    How is Donald Brown a "good" receiver? The kid had 21 receptions as a senior, NFL Draft Scout sees potential, but notes he was limited in his "routes."
    The kid looked good catching balls in shorts at his Pro Day, but Kirwin's smoking rope to suggest he's a Kevin Faulk replacement on such meager data.

    Jesus, he has them with three 3-4 OLBs. Matthews and Barwin are my top choices and I'd be positively happy with both. But a RB and then another guy who projects to 3-4 OLB? Hell no. I'd be happier with Chung, Casey, or White at those picks. You come out with 4 of those 5 guys and you've got yourself a day 1.

    The thing that LSU fans like me will remind you of is that Kevin Faulk was basically a receiver when he was at school. Think a bigger, less flashy Reggie Bush. He was a hybrid running back-wide receiver (as he is now) - he even lined up at TE and H-back, not a pure running back who flashed decent hands or anything. The only guy I can see as a "Kevin Faulk replacement" is Percy Harvin. But he replaces Faulk if he's a 1st rounder and Faulk is still really freaking good. There's better value in round 1 for the Patriots immediate and short-term needs.

    Thanks for the info. This is actually the first time I've heard this, although I can easily believe it.

    [ObFanBoy mode]I still have a hard time wrapping my mind around the fact that the Patriots have Kevin Faulk and Wes Welker to help out on third downs. . . . [/ObFanBoy]

    Somewhat unrealistic. I can't imagine Mathews, Barwin, Brown , and Kruger all falling the way he sees it. 3 potential #1's-and a probable 2. Doubtful.

    No way we get 2 OLB's when we already have 4 and there's a very good chance Jason Taylor signs

    Personally I love P.K. on the radio, a very good personality and a pretty good commentator. But this reeks of hedging his bets. I think he has a feeling that Patriots are going to take an OLB on day 1, clearly he is genius, but not a clue which one at what value. So he puts in 3 at different picks and value levels, and hopes one of them will be right.
