Discussion in 'Patriots Draft Talk' started by Va_Pats_Fan, Mar 20, 2007.
They will also have video and analysis on the 6 pm sportscenter
Nothing really new in the commentary. Not sure I learned anything I didn't already know. They signed top FAs and lost Graham/Dillon. I guess the supposition that we will be addressing Safety/CB in the draft is at least throwing something out there.
And the only replies to the commentary are the following lame comments from some jealous loser jester fan.
This article is basically just to get you ready for the Patriots "on the clock" tonight. I'm interested to see who Kiper thinks they'll get...I wonder if he'll still say Willis, and Nelson? Anyone know if they'll talk about both of NE's first round picks, or just one?
Kiper says Willis at 24 and either Nelson or Eric Weddle of Utah at 28. Works for me.
I'd probably blow my load, not in a gay way though
Well one thing about it if you miss it on TV you can see the video clip on the ESPN web site under "On the Clock" that works for me.
I am starting to think I want the best available DB at 24 and either poluszny or Harris at 28.
The one interesting part was Kiper throwing Weddle in the mix...maybe, but I would rather take him in the second, as part of my trade with the Pack
What is peoples thing with this guy? Willis would be the better fit.
Trade??? I really doubt we'd be able to make a trade..who are you giving the Packers?? Colvin?? Hmmm a 2nd?? Not sure who they could trade for a 2...
the trade is 24 and 28 for 16 and 47 at least i think thats what he's talkin about because it equals out
He is arguably the hardest worker of any player in the entire draft. Lives in the film room and has worked out like mad. Unquestioned team leader too. I would be ecstatic if we could get this guy. As for Willis, he will probably get picked before us, so don't get your hopes up. Poz might too for that matter, but less likely.
I think poz might be around at 24
Yea, the same trade I have talked entirely to much about
According to McShay, some people are starting to say Posluszny might even last until the early second.
Welker is worth a 2nd
Not that there's anything wrong with that.
Yeah Im just saying
I think it's just Kiper being clueless, but if Nelson falls to #28 I'll shoot myself and some GM's should be shot. Easily one of the ten best players in the draft.
Hmm, Kiper used to have Nelson at something like 14th overall on his big board, but now he doesn't even have Nelson in his top 25...
McShay also talked about Nelson being to one demensional to warrent a high first rounder, so maybe Nelson falling to NE isn't all that unrealistic.
Also, a sports writer in Jax thinks the Jags might go WR, or TE (Olsen) with their 14th overall pick. I"ve seen some people saying Dallas could go WR, or CB with their first, instead of Safety...Maybe (Big maybe) NE could have their choice of Nelson, Griffin, and Meriweather at 24.
Well, in a setting like this, where they talk about one team at a time, it's possible he gives out the same player to multiple teams. He's just listing likely targets as opposed to a full mock.
Both picks are quite wonderful...but I have to admit..when a player becomes a "Patriot" pick..they usually get bravved before the Pats are on the clock. Too many times in the past years a player seems to be in the radar and that is the kiss of death of teh player EVER becoming a Patriot. Once that happens..another team will draft them..their value seems to go up. And what is odd is that who REALLY knows if the Patriots HAD THEM ranked as high. But that is all OK...for I really think the Pats will wait for mistakes to happen and draft that player that falls through teh cracks..and it always happens later in the first round. Wilfork is just a great exa,ple of that and while THAT does NOT happen every year..it happens more than enough. Every team went D last year it seemed and Maroney was available..as was Jackson..(and I still think he will turn out OK...) Mankins was a stretchm, but I thought for awhile he was a Patriot type player..and he has been. Willis might be the guy..or...who knows..just get two solid players..that is all..
Mort said that if the Pats had just paid Branch the money (disregarding that he was still under contract, naturally) they wouldn't be having these problems at WR.
Looks like we let a Hall-of-Famer go, kids!
He fell out after his combine numbers. Now that he ran his pro day numbers he'll pop back in. The constant over reaction to numbers.
Did he say those words before or after Welker, Stallworth, and Washington...and Bam?
He said that yesterday, lol. Kiper actually said something like (paraphrasing)"Well, I think they pretty much addressed their WR situation through free agency, with the addition of Stallworth, Welker, and Washington. I probably wouldn't expect them to take a WR until day 2, now."
Mort's an idiot sometimes, and Kiper can be as well, but he was the voice of reason during this instance.
Interesting proposal, but I think I'd prefer staying at #24 & #28. The PAts track record with 1st's versus 2nd's is very different.
This years draft class has more second round talent than it does legit first rounders. This is why moving up in round one from 24 to 16, and then moving back from 28 to 47 in the second round makes a lot of sense. NE would likely have to reach for someone with the 28th pick, and that same player could be on the board at 47.
it would be an interesting test of the value chart after the new agreement w/ the Players Assn. 16 is the last pick that you can sign for 6 years. 24 & 28 are five year deals. IIRC, 47 is now capped at a 4 year deal, so you would have to know that you are drafting a player that could help you right away, rather than someone that you could develop for this scenario to make sense.
