    23. Kansas City- Bears#1fan Robert Meachem, WR, Tennessee
    24. New England- bakes781

    Suggestions? I was leaning towards Merriweather despite his troubled behavior. Another option I was considering was TE since all the top LBs are gone.

    Put your Kool-Aid down NOW. That batch expired in 2004. Gillette Stadium will be sending you this year's batches ASAP. :)

    My serious pick would probably be someone like Carriker. But even the oft-maligned Brian Leonard would be a better pick than any TE.

    But you know how much BB loves TEs. And there's a couple good ones in this draft. Just throwing it out there. :bricks:

    the only te out there worth a 1st round pick is greg olsen and this guy would be a ben watson clone. if you draft a te for the pats it should be one with better blocking skills ;)

    I would have traded up for Carriker by now. A first round of Carriker/Anthony Spencer would be phenomenal

    Greg Olson is over-rated. The better TE is Zach Miller from ASU.

    In reality he's likely not on the board, but with Carriker being so talented even if at a Postion you already have Seymour and Warren, you take Carriker at 24. Plus this gives you more flexibility when it comes to resignings. Again though, I doubt he's still on the board.

    I agree Carriker would be tremendous value. We'd have the best 4-3 defense in the league :rocker:

    What about Blalock? Mankins and Blalock zone blocking for Maroney? That would be sick.

    Lastly I'd take Griffin for the usual reasons. I like him better than Merriweather.

    with carriker on board i would throw my tv out of the window, if i were a patsfan and the draft runs like this. woodley doesn't have 1st round value for sure and merriweather has too many character issues to spend a first round pick.

    i'd take carriker in a heartbeat at 24 and with #28 michael griffin (or aaron ross, if griffin is picked by the eagles)

    Dryheat-Cousin,
    Would you trade 24 and 28 with Atlanta for their one and grab Willis?
    Too much?
    Or would you swap the two for the Atlanta pick. Move up to SF for their one and a three so we get another pick?
    I think Willis is by far and away the best LB but two ones maybe too much.

    I agree that Carriker is the best value here I had to look twice to make sure I was reading this right. Merriweather and Griffin are good choices also.

    24. Carriker/Griffin
    28. Woodley/Merriweather

    rouse doesn't fit in the patriots scheme, he would look much better in a cover 2-scheme. i wouldn't be surprised if he will line up as a linebacker in the nfl (scouts compare him to cato june).

    I would say Carriker is the best bet there. Though, if the Pats were in that position, they would be looking at a trade down and getting the most they could for it.

    How come some people like Aaron Ross in the first round? He's not that good.

    No. I'd rather have Carriker than Willis, and certainly would rather have Carriker Plus Another than Willis. I'd take Carriker and David Harris in half a heartbeat.

    I love Willis' game, I think he's the best linebacker in the draft, but I think it's a coin flip whether he'll be productive enough in the Belichick 3-4 to invest two first round picks in. I think he belongs as a Mike in a 4-3.

    In this situation I think the best value at 24 would be:
    Carriker then Jon Beason then Joe Staley then Michael Griffin

    at 28 the best value would be:
    Staley then Harrell then Griffin & Meriweather then Gonzo.

    The overall best value in this situation would probably taking Carriker with 24 then trading 28.

    I'd trade 24&28 to move into the teens, and pickup a second, but I wouldn't trade both first for one high first. You're not only using two first on one player, but it's also not very cap friendly. As I pointed out before the player taken at 8th overall, or 9th overall will likely have a larger contract than both players taken at 24 & 28 combined.

    I wouldn't even do it for Landry.

    I went with Carriker. I'll let you know how the next 3 picks play out. At the pace this thing is going that could be a couple days from now.

    Yup in this mock situation he should hope for:
    Meriweather, Woodley, Spencer, Herrell, Wilson, Staley, Sears, or Gonzo in the second. Maybe Leonard as well. This brings something up, I really like the second round this year.

    sebman,

    I agree. Wish we didn't give it up (2nd rounder) to Miami. hopefully trading both picks for a teen in the first and a second rounder.
