    I like Jolly as a 3-4 NT. I think he'd be a decent backup to Wilfork. Better than Wright is in my opinion.

    I like the picks left above. The rest, I'll hope you are in the bathroom when the picks are made so I can make them instead :)

    That's why I call it my "dream draft". :rocker: I broke my own cardinal rule about production and gave in on Jason Allen. I deserve abuse for that one. But I already have my "official" mock done, which I am sticking with. http://www.patsfans.com/new-england-patriots/messageboard/showthread.php?t=33978

    I don't hate Allen especially if they're OK with his hip. The thing is, though, he wasn't a huge physical presence when healthy, if I am taking a Safety at #21 I want a guy who can cover and hits like a tank.

    I was thinking of him as a CB, since he was played cb in '03 and was playing cb in '05 before his injury. 6'1'' 209 lbs, 4.39/3.81/6.75. 123 tackles in one year playing free safety as a junior, 11 PBUs in 1/2 season playing CB as a sophomore. Dislocated his hip in the Georgia game trying to tackle TE Leonard Pope of all people. Assuming he's healthy he could be the best cb physically in the draft. His instincts have been questioned, which is why the safer pick is CB Marshall out of Fresno. Marshall has better ball skills, but Allen is a fast, mean, tough bastid...

    All bets are off for him and Whitner if a team thinks they can legitimitely play CB, then they rise way up the boards.

    The problem with Whitner is he hasn 't played any CB; Allen played his soph year and 5 games of his senior year as a cb, so there's plenty of tape. Whitner is really a one year wonder in some ways. With all his speed and reported instincts he only broke up 6 passes last year and 9 total in his 3 year career. Considering the kind of pressure opposing QBs were under from OSU's all world defense you would expect him to make more plays on the ball from centerfield. I am not really sold on Whitner. There are soem negatives with Allen too: he scored an 11 on the Wonderlic, and despite being the emotional leader of the Vol's D he is reported to have some attitude problems and they wonder how money might change him. Also, of course the hip issue. If his hip checks out and the Pats think he can play CB, he could be a tremendous pick at #21.

    Apparently Jason Allen is Felger's prediction.
