Moss and Turner
i cant say it enough i think tim shaw will be great
Yep. And Lance Briggs, and Trent Green.
In no particular order...
1. RB Mchael Bush (First round talent who fell because of the injury, at this point in the draft I'd take the chance.)
2. RB Antonio Pittman (I thought he was late second round talent so his still being available is a surprise to me.)
3. RB Dwayne Wright (I really like his game, and we're getting into the rounds were taking him should be a serious option.)
1. WR Aundrae Allison (I think he's late second/early third talent so his still being available is a surprise to me.)
2. WR Chris Davis (I thinkh fits NE's offense better than any WR available, and some already taken. Elusive, reliable hands, crisp route runner, and good at finding the hole in zone defense. He's Deion Branch like.)
3. WR Courtney Taylor (Good possession WR.)
1. S John Wendling (Best Safety available. Has great size to play SS, his coverage range is good, and he has better recovery ability than some think. I think he's the next John Lynch.)
2. S Josh Gattis (Good Safety with size who could play either FS or SS, and I think he's better than some of the Safeties already taken.)
3. S Michael Johnson (has the size to play either FS or SS, and his game is a little simular to Michael Griffins. With some time to develop he could be a very good Safety.
1. CB DeAndre Jackson (Without the injury he's gone in the first two rounds. He is physical in man-to-man, can play zone defense, supports the run, hits, ball skills, and is a good returner. He's a bigger version of Hobbs.)
2. CB Kenny Scott (Good CB with height, who just needs to add weight. Good in man coverage, supports th run, good tackler, experienced, and a return man.)
3. CB Michael Coe (Good size, physical, ball skills, good instincts, intelligent with good intangibles.)
1. ILB Desmond Bishop (Decent size, very good tackler, good instincts and awareness, strong against the run, motor never stops, has a nasty attitude, team leader, loves the game, and is a very hard worker.)
2. ILB Brandon Siler (Intelligent, instinctive, has all the intangibles, hits with power, solid tackler, good against the run, good blitzer/pass rusher, takes on blockers well, nasty, and experienced.)
3. ILB Prescott Burgess (Good size, good in coverage, plays faster than he times, very good ball skills, very good pursuit, high motor, hard worker, hits with force, and can play with an attitude. Has loads of upside.)
4. ILB Antwan Barnes (Very good speed and explosion, 22.5 tackles for loss in '06, very good pass rusher/blitzer who could be a fantastic small school sleeper.)
1. OLB Zak DeOssie (I'm putting him at OLB because that's the position he said he want's to play. Very good size, speed is good fr his size, high motor, good pursuit, good range, and is very good in coverage.)
2. OLB Brian Robison (Good size, has speed, good pass rusher, plays physica and is tough, very good pusuit, high motor, has all the intangibles, hard worker, experienced, very good on special teams where he was a PK blocking freak.)
3. OLB Jay Moore (Great size, tough and reliable, intelligent, always behind the LOS, very high motor, all the intangibles, hard worker, great bull rush, and versatile. Underrated becaus he played on the other side of Carriker.)
1. TE Ben Patrick (Has all-around skills, and frankly I'm surprised he's still on the board. BB had him in for a private workout and I think his value should be pretty high at this point in the draft.)
1. P Daniel Sepulveda (What's there to say, best punter available.)
1. NT Paul Soliai (Best NT available, and his value will start becoming to much to ignore.)
2. NT Walter Thomas (All potential, but worth taking a chance on in the later rounds (6-7).)
1. DT Antonio Johnson (I thought he would last this long, but I really like his game. If he's still on the board for NE's fifth round pick they'll have to seriously think about it.)
Yes, I like your picks.
I don't understand the pats logic though. If they thought these guys were good they would have been tempted to take them with the #3 pick. Some of them anyway.
I wouldn't be surprised if they trade some of their remaining picks away, the ones they can.
I thought there were 4 or 5 openings on the pats roster this year...but maybe they just don't see it that way.
Ok, one down and still, what, 6 picks to make?
If they can turn all the remaining tradeable picks into two of:
I'd be mighty happy
