    I know it's been said before, but I still find it completely strange that that the last 5 round picks have all begun with the letter M, saying that who do we pick this year.... Mallet?


    Mankins
    Maroney
    Merriweather
    Mayo
    McCourty

    They did it to trick the Jets into picking Mark Sanchez.

    After drafting Warren, Wilfork, then Watson, someone decided to shake up the draft strategy and turned the W upside down.

    Assuming Mallett is not on their draft board, the only 2 that fit are Von Miller and Rahim Moore. Not what I would do but considering the limited draft pool based on first letter of last name, not that bad.

    Here's a sleeper. Dontay Moch - Nevada. LB who supposedly ran a 4.25 forty this summer. Sounds more like a Raider pick than us. Who knows.

    It will make predicting our first round draft pick much easier next year

    Even tho I say that here were my M name predictions the past 3 years:
    Derrick Morgan
    Clay Mathews
    Leodis McKelvin

    It's tough to find an M to keep up the streak unless you use the first name and go for Mark Ingram. They obviously aren't going QB in round one and Von Miller doesn't fit our system at all. Moch is a longshot, but may have the best chance of keeping up the M steak. I'll throw in one more name, the Wisconsin interior lineman John Moffitt. Probably won't be a 1st rounder, but Mankins was in a similar situation.

    By Raider pick, was meant to be workout warrior. Yes, I know we have the pick. I usually just post in the draft forum to avoid the clutter here.

    If we wish to shop for M's for NE's cause, there are some options ...

    Murray, DeMarco Oklahoma
    Miller, Von Texas A&M
    Moore, Rahim UCLA

    ... I'm more partial returning to the W's of the Super Bowl years ...

    Wisniewski, Stefen Penn State
    Wilson, Martez Illinois
    Wilkerson, Muhammad Temple
    Watt, J.J. Wisconsin

    ... however, kicking off a new decade of dynasty, BB's letter selection should rightly begin with an S ...

    Sherrod, Derek Mississippi State
    Solder, Nate Colorado
    Smith, Jimmy Colorado
    Sash, Tyler Iowa
    Smith, Tyron Southern Cal

    ... which off course means the second 1st rounder should be a G.

    Green, A.J. Georgia
    Good, Stephen Oklahoma

    The only association I want the Patriots having with Mallet is Spikes intercepting him, the guy is lesser talented version of Favre. Lets hope Marcell Dareus gets caught smoking Marijuana, which causing his stock to slide enough in order for us to get him with 1a.
