    Just assuming that the rounds in which they picked represented value, how would you feel about picking P Daniel Sepulveda (Baylor) and LB/LS Zak DeOssie? In my mind, this would solve a number of problems:

    (1) Presumably, it would allow the Pats to save a roster spot, if not this year, then next year (Paxton is a UFA after this season).
    (2) Sepulveda can hold, so that would, knock on wood, prevent a rotating carousel of holders for Gostkowski.
    (3) Sepulveda may actually have a stronger leg than Sauerbrun (Sepulveda's had a couple of 75+ yard punts), and is big enough to tackle (he's got a couple of inches and about 20 pounds on Gostkowski).
    (4) It would give the Pats a very young ST unit that could work together on a long-term basis, and get better over time.

    LS is a UDFA thing, draft DeOssie if you think he can play LB. The Pats have three Punters signed and will make a decision on matching Saubrun's offer from Denver, the Baylor kid isn't a priority - even as a UDFA.

    I do think DeOssie can play LB, but the fact that he could also do LS, in my mind, makes him an even more tempting target.

    Well, at least one of those was in spite of Cassel, not because of him (remember the circus kick?).
