    I think that there are two sweet spots for us.

    LINEBACKER
    The sweet spot is the middle of the first (12-22)

    TIGHT END AND WIDE RECEIVER
    The sweet spot is the 3rd.

    I have to disagree with you about WR. I believe that the "sweet spot" starts around pick 48 and runs though pick 120 or so. But there are guys rated all over who I think will be successful in the league.

    I'd go further on WR and say that there are guys who'll still be available in the 7th who should easily knock Aiken and Stanback off the roster.

    Moreover, with "linebacker", the sweet spot depends entirely on how you define the position for the Pats. Now. Not back when the Pats were consistently running a classic 3-4. If your model is still 6'4", fairly fast, and adept at coverage, that's one set of guys. If your model is someone more along the lines of a TBC - pass-rushing DE/OLB hybrid, that's a whole other group - and a much deeper one in this draft, IMHO.

    Agree completely. I wouldn't even be upset if we drafted a T/E in the 4th round. We don't utilize T/E enough to justify using a 1st or 2nd round pick.
