    If there is any player coming out of the draft that resembles Tedi Bruschi's play and would be a great fit here in New England it would be Paul Poluzny.

    Watching some film on him recently,He looks a bit like Bruschi did when Tedi was playing ball in Arizona State...Same type fierceness and hunger and similar size and also is not picked at the top of the draft board.

    Poluzny would make a great ILB in the NFL and has that Linebacker University of Penn State as a great resume...No team in College Football history IMO has put better LB athletes in the NFL than Penn State.

    I think we may see another in Paul and there is no better replacement when Bruschi probably retires next year than this young man...Looks special for what I have seen of him...Something like Tedi in the mid 90s

    If we are lucky enough to still have him on the board at #24 I think it would be wise to grab him and I think he would look great in Patriots Colors.

    And it's Tedy. I wouldn't be disappointed with him but he's an OLB while Bruschi is an ILB.

    College OLB's translate to ILB for us.

    Besides he played OLB and ILB in college in a 3-4 system

    And Tedy was a down in the dirt DE at Arizona and was converted to an OLB in the 4-3, which took some time.

    He was a project that took a lot of time to develop into the player he was a few years ago.

    Tedy's College game was nothing like Posluszny's. Tedy was a sack machine D-Linemen, who was very strong for a smaller guy. Posluszny is weaker at the point of attack, and doesn't remind me of bruschi at all. If anything Posluszny is a smaller, slower, less versatile version of Brian Urlacher.

    I guarentee the hate would stop if he was selected. Posluszny was Penn State's best LB for the past three seasons. He's versatile meaning he can switch from OLB to MLB. He's smart and a leader. What's not to like?

    Seems to me to be the perfect Patriots type player,One of several of those guys in the first round but IMO the only player in LB position,At least from where we draft at 24

    Think I heard those SAME type of comments at least 2 times in the past few decades in the NFL.. One of those same type comments was about Zach Thomas and the other was Mike Singletary when entering the NFL :rolleyes:

    I dont think that Poslunsky is hated.. Its just he comes from that lame school Penn State... He is not worth a first round pick, plus he tore up his knee in the 2006 orange bowl.. Im not sold on him , nor has there been any good lb's in the last 20 yrs to come out of penn state.. And please dont give me Lavar Arrington, look where he is now..

    NO WAY the Pats draft him in Round 1. He's not athletic enough. They might trade back to Round 2 and get him, picking up a pick on the way. I saw a mock (Pat Kirwin's, I think...on NFL.com) where the Saints get #24 and the Pats get #27 and a Second Rounder.

    He's a classic type to fall. Hard nosed overachiever. Those guys permeate every round. Finding them later on is the key, after the real athletes are off the board.
