Don't tell the Jets :scared:, but I think I'm exposing the Pats draft. The theme being upgrading speed, versatility and athleticism. 1. CB, DRC, TSU It will take a team with a lot of balls to draft this guy early. But the Pats love of athleticism will help start an early run on CB's. Having trained with both Sanders and Darrell Green, he's NFL ready. And let us not forget bloodlines! 2. WR/KR Dexter Jackson, AS There is a big void left by Donte' Stallworth. Granted, Chad Jackson could finally step up and contribute. But Jackson is known for his hands, not his speed. This Jackson, Dexter, is known for both big plays and speed. 3. OLB Marcus Howard, UGA Compares favorably to USC's Keith Rivers in many respects. Highest rated speed at his position. After being stuck behind 2 NFL caliber DE's, Howard exploded on the scene, notching 10.5 sacks and dominating the SugarBowl. 4. MLB Stanford Keglar, Purdue Despite serving mostly spot duty, Keglar caught the eyes of scouts at the Combine with excellent measurables. Has the build you look for in a 3-4 MLB. Unfortunately, the Pats have to draft him early since he has many suitors. 5. FS Thomas Decoud, Cal Decoud doesn't do any one thing great. But he does everything so very good. He doesn't get any media play but ask the people who play and practice against him and they insist he's the most feared hitter around. 6. CB Orlando Scandrick, BS While Ryan Clady headlines at Boise State, Scandrick was a shutdown corner and ST standout. Could step right into the hole left by Gay at CB. Only a Junior, with room to get better. Good ball skills but teams mostly avoided him. 7. LT Chad Rinehart, N. Iowa Scouts have fallen in love with his teammate, OG Brandon Keith, but Rinehart has the drive, determination and toughness that the Pats generally love in late round lineman. Will likely see some time at the Right Tackle position. 8. OG Jordan Grimes, Purdue Doesn't look particularly strong. Didn't do very well in the benchpress. But engulfs defenders at the point of attack before they even react to the snap. Very quick jump despite being slow. Will provide extra push up the middle. And that's a wrap, folks. See you next year!
