    CB Antoine Cason, Arizona

    Granted, the Patriots are all about keeping their options open on draft day, so most possibilities would seem reasonable. I think, ideally speaking, they might consider FS Kenny Phillips. But, surely, he'll be long gone (Watch!).
    So, the Pats sneak away with one of the finest CB's to come out in years.
    You can take that to the bank. :horn: I preach it, you believe it! :agree:

    you realize we have the #7 pick and not the 31/32nd pick?

    I would be happy with McKelvin, Talib, or Cason but think that we would get better value if we were able to trade down and still get one of them. I hope we don't pick Jenkins because he didn't impress me at his bowl game but i may change my mind if his Combine numbers are really good.

    Do you think CB is your absolute biggest need? Nothing else even needs consideration?

    I think it obviously depends on whether Asante resigns. But Gay is also an UFA, so if they both leave then yes, CB is without a doubt our biggest draft need.

    People have talked about the age of the LB corps, but even if Bruschi and Seau were both to retire, we still have Thomas, Colvin, and Vrabel. I'm sure BB would prefer to plug that last hole with a veteran as well.

    If I had to bet on it, I'd say a CB will be the pick. Then again, trying to project a BB draft pick is like trying to predict rain in Death Valley.

    You think we can get through an entire NFL season with only Thomas, Vrabel and Colvin?

    Read the very next sentence (which you quoted). Some people would rather put creative smilies in their post than actually read and respond to what others say. As I SAID, I'm sure BB would prefer to plug the LB hole(s) created by Bruschi and Seau (assuming they retire) with a veteran, as opposed to drafting someone early. This is especially true since Laurinitis, the guy most people linked to the Pats, is going back to OSU.

    I think Seau will retire. Bruschi may have one more year in him.

    If the pats take a DB in the 1st round, you'll probably see a lot more Nickel Coverage in the 08/09 season.

    Pats are paying Jarvis Green a LOT of money. And Seymour would dominate the trenches inside with Wilfork. Like we saw early on when Seymour came off the PUP List.

    All the sites I've seen say he's not even a first rounder.

    We won't know for sure if Cason is first round material until he runs an official 40.
    If he runs 4.5 or higher, then he has no real chance of going in the first round.

    That is entirely UNTRUE. Sorry. Cason could run a 4.55 and still be a first rounder because 40 speed isn't the tell tale. Its only PART of the equation.

    If history is any guide, a 4.55 means you're not a first round pick.

    We won't know for sure until the draft is over.

    Maybe they're wrong, maybe not. Does seem odd to take a guy at #7 who many sites don't even project in the 1st round.

    Who is this "many sites" you mention? How about you provide some links? Because most of the LEGIT sites have Cason as a mid 1st round pick with many sites rating him in the top 30 prospects of the draft.

    Also, most people figure that if the Pats take Cason, it will be AFTER they've dropped out of the top 10.

    Just a hunch. But, once combine is over. I think M.Jenkins,L.McKelivin
    D.Rodgers-Cromartie and maybe A.Talib go before Cason. Talib in a similiar situation as Cason. Has to run a good 40 to move ahead of other guys.
    I'm hoping we trade out of 7 too. Unless Gholston puts up a good 40 time.
    Then, I'd consider taking him. Can never have enough good pass-rushers.

    Although does seem odd that Brady Quinn dropped from like top 5 to what 22 just shows ya never can really tell. I've never seen a website that has been even close to the actuall order, especially when the prediction comes before the Superbowl has even been played.

    Daymeion Hughes. Great senior bowl practice until he got hurt and great statistics and was lock down @ CAL. He ran a poor 40 and went to 3rd or 4th round

    Hughes is only 5'10, while Cason is 6'. Also, Hughes ran forties in the 4.60-4.72 range. That's a big difference from 4.55, and Cason's run in the 4.44-4.55 range, which is a big difference. Cason's also dangerous with the ball in his hands (4 TD's his senior season), and his overall scouting grades are higher.

    NFLDraftScout.com ranks Cason the 2nd CB overall, and I tend to agee that he should go in the first round.

    Hmmm. Interesting! But tell me, what did they say about Dan Graham, Ben Watson, Ty Warren or Logan Mankins? Lol. The Patriots lead, not follow.
