    #75 Jersey

    Just for the fun of it, let's list 3-5 players who could realistically be available at #28 and if you would be happy if the Patriots picked any one of those players.

    On the other hand, list one or more players that are consensus ranked from 20-35 that you would be unhappy if the Patriots pick any one of those players.

    Also are there any player(s) that you have still yet to make up your mind about who are in that consensus 20-35 area.

    sold on:

    Ryan Kerrigan
    Mike Pouncey
    Mark Ingram
    Ras I Downing
    Leonard Hankerson

    Not Sold on:
    Ryan Williams - Although I could get sold
    Jimmy Smith
    Jerrel Jernigan- Why draft Dion Branch when you have Dion Branch
    Danny Watkins

    Undecided:
    Brooks Reed- maybe later but not #28

    Hard to answer ... fairly certain #28 or #33 is getting shipped out. Better value is to ship out #28 ... but who is left on the board decides that anyways.

    Take Carimi and put him at guard where he will thrive.

    I would continue to use the upper part of my list below to see if anyone is left (perhaps Kerrigan). The choice wouldm also depend on who we have picked earlier. I would expect to choosing among Wilson, Carimi and Wilson.

    Watkins
    Wisnewski


    PLAYERS 10-32

    WOULD PICK
    Jordan
    Watt
    Kerrigan
    Wilkerson
    Costonzo
    Jones
    Ingram
    Amakmura
    Smith (LB)
    Heyward
    ---------
    Reed
    Carimi
    Wilson

    WOULD NOT
    Locker
    Quinn
    Ayers
    Paea
    Taylor
    Luiget
    Solder
    Harris
    Pouncey

    UNSURE
    Clayborn

    TOP 9 NOT EXPECTED TO BE THERE
    Darius
    Peterson
    Smith (OT)
    Green

    I agree someone needs to take first 27 off the board and we need to know what Pats did at #17. If Carimi is there and Pats took outside pass rusher, IMO it is a no-brainer - take Carimi and may be even Pouncey if he has U Meyer's endorsement.

    I also agree that #28 might be better value to be traded, especially if a QB falls.:eek:

    It's a small risk in taking a chance the guy you want falls 5 more spots to #33 ... I really don't think we use it.

    He is way too tall to play G. Now if you are playing him at RT, you have my itnterest piqued.

    #75 Jersey

    Quickly. 10-33

    Quinn
    Miller
    Jordan
    Watt
    A Smith
    Heyward
    Wilkerson
    Leshoure
    Ingram
    Hankerson
    Clayborn
    Reed

    I'm positvely sure that I will not be dissapointed if any of these players will be picked by the Patriots 17, 28 or 33.

    Unsure of all o-line prospects in first 2 rounds. None really stick out to me as sure fire starters. I recognize the need but have a hard time giving up a 1st for any of the OT which all project as guard and right tackle. The rollerskating club just doesn't do it for me this year. I do realize that they will probably use one of their 2nds on one and it is dissapointing to me.

    Will add unsold players later.

    There's a long history of college players drafted to play tackle because of height/weight and college position that have eventually become guards. Off the top of my head there are several recent highly rated tall tackles that have become great guards such as Robert Gallery, Leonard Davis, and Brandon Albert. Offensive line is one of the few positions in football where height really isn't critical.

    Perhaps great is too strong of an adjective here.
