    Several posters have expressed concern at some of the naming issues in this year's safety class. I thought it might help to divide them into name-value groups.


    Eric Weddle
    John Wendling
    Will Herring
    Will Gulley

    I'm very high on this group, full of tough, smart, high-character guys with position flexibility.



    Josh Gattis
    C.J. Gaddis
    C.J. Wilson
    Josh Wilson

    A lot of tough, emotional guys who play beyond their physical limitations, but less consistent than the "Will Wuddle" group.



    Brandon Meriweather
    Brandon Sharp
    Brandon Harrison
    Brandon Mitchell

    I think the Brandons are the worst group fit for the Patriots due to their strength/tackling/character concerns.



    Biggest wildcard: Sabby Piscitelli.

    I thought the Wilson brothers were CBs?

    Are you saying Meriweather has tackling concerns?

    Not only that, but he's slow to reload and he's easily distracted by hairy legs.

    where does leonard peters fit into those groups
    i would love him to be on the pats maybe with 1 of our comp picks maybe in the 5th or 6th round
    he would be a great special teams warrior for a very long time, great run stoper and a hugh hitter probally the best in the all of your groups

    Some fine points raised here. After much soul-searching, I must concede that drafting a player based solely on his name is not the wisest strategy.

    Just ask Eli Manning. ;)

    well i wouldn't confuse his name with any of the groups listed, so i guess he doesn't fit in.
