    At this point, I wouldn't care if they drafted Martha Stewart.

    Re: Pats Take Kareem Brown With Pick 127

    Strengths: Possesses good height and adequate-to-good bulk. Has a wide wingspan and shows more room on his frame to get bigger. He is a fine athlete for his size. Displays very good initial burst and the consistent ability to penetrate when fresh and giving good effort. He shows closing burst to the quarterback and has become much more instinctive as a pass rusher. He has long arms and big hands. He has a powerful upper body. He flashes explosive playmaking skills. Shows good closing burst to the quarterback and also when pursuing ball carriers from behind.

    Weaknesses: Has been an inconsistent performer throughout his career. Comes out of his stance too high at times and loses all of his power when he does. Must learn to play with more consistent leverage and to use his hands more effectively. He does not do a good job of disengaging from blocks and he seems to lack ideal awareness. He gets knocked off his feet entirely too much. His must improve his array of pass rush moves.

    Overall: Brown was redshirted in 2002. In 2003, he saw action in 11 games (one start; Tennessee) and made 26 total tackles, 3.5 tackles for loss, and four sacks. Brown appeared in 12 games (one start; North Carolina) in 2004 and finished the year with 28 total tackles, six tackles for loss, one sack, one forced fumble, and one fumble recovery. In 2005, he once again served as the third defensive tackle playing in all 12 games (one start; Clemson) recording 46 total tackles, 8.5 tackles for loss, 4.5 sacks, one forced fumble, and two fumble recoveries, returning one for a touchdown. Brown appeared in all 12 games in 2006, making 32 total tackles, 10 tackles for loss, 8.5 sacks, and forcing one fumble.
    Brown is a classic boom-or-bust prospect with limited started experience but loads of upside. He still needs to play with better leverage and more consistency, but Brown seemed to put it all together during the second-half of his senior year. He is an impressive athlete for his size and he displays enough explosiveness to develop into a difference-maker at the next level. A team that trusts its defensive line coach to motivate Brown might want to take a chance on him early in the second-day of the 2007 draft.

    Re: Pats Take Kareem Brown With Pick 127

    BB picked someone who can cover TE's and WR's over the middle in the 1st, now he's picked a player who can spot our d-linemen when they get tired. Remember the AFCCG? Clark was tearing us apart. Now we have Meriweather. Seymour and Jarvis Green were injured/tired and the Colts just kept going and going. We really needed depth then, so now we have it.

    Re: Pats Take Kareem Brown With Pick 127

    Another D-Lineman! That kinda stinks but he did have a 11.5 sacks last year. Pretty damn good. I saw that we had a visit with this guy so it shouldnt be a suprise. But seriously...Moss? WTH? Who cares about the next seven picks! lol.

    Who am I to argue the pick? They must of found some kind of trouble with Brandon Siler or just completely didn't value him as a football player for this team.

    Re: Pats Take Kareem Brown With Pick 127

    Excellent way to look at it. This guy looks like a classic 3-4 DE prospect, though he's a bit of a risk (but the Patriots have Jarvis and Mike Wright anyways). In other words, Marquise Hill, it's safe to say, can pack his bags.

    Re: We are on the clock in Day 2

    Maybe we can finally say goodbye (riddance?) to Marquise Hill. Especially if this kid shows some ability as a pass rusher, which seems like a good possibility...

    Re: Pats Take Kareem Brown With Pick 127

    I didn't realize that Mike Wright and Jarvis Green weren't up to the job of spelling Seymour and Warren. Also, the Pats normally only carry 6-D-linemen into a game. Not 7. Brown is going to take Marquis Hill's spot on the inactive bench more likely than not.

    Re: Pats Take Kareem Brown With Pick 127

    I just don't want to see Randy Moss doing double duty at MLB ala Troy Brown the past 2 years at DB.

    The draft has turned out well so far except for needed help at LB and a personnel desire to pick up another RB.....Darius Walker maybe at this point?
