    It's early, but I wanted to make a dry run to see what kind of options the Patriots could have on the board as they make their selections. More well-thought out ones will follow in the weeks ahead. This mock, unlike my usual ones, features only one trade:


    1 Oakland - JeMarcus Russell QB LSU

    2 Detroit - Calvin Johnson WR Georgia Tech

    3 Cleveland - Adrian Peterson RB Oklahoma

    4 Tampa Bay - Joe Thomas OT Wisconsin

    5 Arizona - Gaines Adams DE Clemson

    6 Washington - Jamaal Anderson DE Arkansas

    7 Minnesota - Amobi Okoye DT Louisville

    8 Houston - Brady Quinn QB Notre Dame

    9 Miami - LaRon Landry S LSU

    10 Atlanta - Alan Branch DT Michigan

    11 San Francisco - Levi Brown OT Penn St

    12 Buffalo - Leon Hall CB Michigan

    13 St. Louis - Jarvis Moss DE Florida

    14 Carolina - Patrick Willis LB Mississippi

    15 Pittsburgh - Chris Houston CB Arkansas

    16 Green Bay - Trade. First I had them pencilled in for Ginn. Then Lynch. Then Olsen. Then I realized that they need a lot of help, and that Carriker is on the board. Therefore Green Bay trades the #16 and #47 to New England for #24, #28, and their sixth round pick. I think this represents a win-win scenario. New England drafts Adam Carriker DE Nebraska

    17 Jacksonville - Reggie Nelson S Florida

    18 Cincinnati - Greg Olson TE Miami

    19 Tennessee - Robert Meachem WR Tennessee

    20 New York Giants - Lawrence Timmons LB Florida St

    21 Denver - Anthony Spencer DE Purdue

    22 Dallas - Dwayne Jarrett WR USC

    23 Kansas City - Tony Ugoh OT Arkansas

    24 Green Bay (from Seattle via New England) - Marshawn Lynch RB Cal

    25 New York Jets - Darrelle Revis CB Pittsburgh

    26 Philadelphia - Ted Ginn WR Ohio St

    27 New Orleans - Dwayne Bowe WR LSU

    28 Green Bay (from New England) - Sidney Rice WR South Carolina

    29 Baltimore - Jon Beason LB Miami

    30 San Diego - Aaron Ross CB Texas

    31 Chicago - Joe Staley OT Central Michigan

    32 Indianapolis - Paul Poslusny LB Penn St


    Second round

    33 Oakland - Brandon Meriweather S Miami

    34 Detroit - Ben Grubbs G Auburn

    35 Tampa Bay - Anthony Gonzalez WR Ohio St

    36 Cleveland - LaMarr Woodley LB Michigan

    37 Chicago (from Washington via NY Jets) - Charles Johnson DE Georgia

    38 Arizona - Arron Sears G Tennessee

    39 Houston - Justin Blaylock G Texas

    40 Miami - Ryan Kalil C USC

    41 Minnesota - Marcus McCauley CB Fresno St

    42 San Francisco - Justin Harrell DT Tennessee

    43 Buffalo - Brandon Siler LB Florida

    44 Atlanta - Michael Griffin S Texas

    45 Carolina - Zach Miller TE Arizona St

    46 Pittsburgh - Brandon Mebane DT Cal

    47 New England (from Green Bay) Tough call. As much as I like Harris here, I'll take Josh Wilson CB Maryland

    48 Jacksonville - Marcus Thomas DT Florida

    49 Cincinnati - Eric Weddle S Utah

    50 Tennessee - Daymeion Hughes CB Cal

    51 New York Giants - David Irons CB Auburn

    52 St. Louis - Brian Leonard RB Rutgers

    53 Dallas - Eric Wright CB UNLV

    54 Kansas City - Craig Davis WR LSU

    55 Seattle - Victor Abiamiri DE Notre Dame

    56 Denver - Jason Hill WR Washington St

    57 Philadelphia - Tony Hunt RB Penn St

    58 New Orleans - Jonathan Wade CB Tennessee

    59 New York Jets - David Harris LB Michigan

    60 Miami (from New England) - Tim Crowder DE Texas

    61 Baltimore - Manny Ramirez G Texas Tech

    62 San Diego - Aundrae Ellison WR East Carolina

    63 New York Jets (from Chicago) - Tanard Jackson DB Syracuse

    64 Tampa Bay (from Indianapolis) - HB Blades LB Pittsburgh


    Third round

    65 Oakland - Steve Smith WR USC

    66 Detroit - Fred Bennett CB South Carolina

    67 Cleveland - Drew Stanton QB Michigan St.

    68 Tampa Bay - Ray McDonald DE Florida

    69 Arizona - Quinn Pitrooster DT Ohio St

    70 Denver (from Washington) - Andy Alleman G Akron

    71 Miami - Kenny Irons RB Auburn

    72 Minnesota - Paul Williams WR Fresno St

    73 Houston - Ryan Harris OT Notre Dame

    74 Buffalo - James Marten OT Boston College

    75 Atlanta - Quentin Moses DE Georgia

    76 San Francisco - Ilaika Alama-Francis DE Hawai'i

    77 Pittsburgh - Samson Satele C Hawai'i

    78 Green Bay - Kareen Brown DT Miami

    79 Jacksonville - Troy Smith QB Ohio St

    80 Cincinnati - No pick (Ahmad Brooks)

    81 Tennessee - Dan Bazuin DE Central Michigan

    82 New York Giants - Johnnie Lee Higgins WR Texas Tech

    83 St. Louis - Aaron Rouse S Virginia Tech

    84 Carolina - Kevin Kolb QB Houston

    85 Kansas City - AJ Davis CB North Carolina St

    86 Seattle - Michael Bush RB Louisville

    87 Denver - John Wendling S Wyoming

    88 Dallas - Doug Free OT Northern Illinois

    89 New Orleans - Rufus Alexander LB Oklahoma

    90 New York Jets - Buster Davis LB Florida St.

    91 Philadelphia - Tim Shaw LB Penn St

    92 New England - Frankly, I don't know what to do. Based on Best Value, I'd give the edge to Darius Walker. But we're also in the neighborhood of Gattis, DeShaun Wynn, Paul Soliai, Stewart Bradley, Steve DeOssie, Sabby Piscitelli, and Rhema McKnight among others. After this, we only have one more pick in the top 160. It might be a little high, but let's give the Pats Zak DeOssie LB Brown, whom I like a bit more than Bradley.

    93 Buffalo (from Baltimore) - Darius Walker RB Notre Dame

    94 San Diego - Sabby Piscatelli S Oregon St

    95 Chicago - Trent Edwards QB Stanford

    96 Indianapolis - Travarous Bain CB Hampton

    Re: The first Mock draft 3/14

    I have to ask.

    Why would we trade up to take a DE/DT when we have so many good, young ones on the team now?

    From this draft board, I'd much rather have Darrelle Revis with the 1st and Brian Leonard with the 2nd. . . .

    Yeah, why trade up, unless they want to get rid of Seymour.

    I don't think he did that much last year. Where was he in the Indy game?

    Don't think DeOssie is a 3rd round pick. Brown? He can run fast, so what?

    1) If they were to get Carriker, it would be to replace Green more than Seymour, though replacing Seymour could be the long term plan. Also, this could be protection against not being able to reach an extension agreement with Warren.

    2) Seymour played injured. His elbow AND his knee. Also, since you missed it, the entire defense disappeared in the 2nd half because they were exhausted.

    3) DeOssie is definitely worth a 3rd round pick. Heck, I'd say he might even be worth a 2nd rounder.

    Dryheat -
    I think that a more likely scenario for this trade would be the Pats trading their 2 1sts and their 3rd to the Packers for their 1st 3 picks.

    This is definitely an interesting mock draft. I like the Picks of Carriker, Wilson and DeOssie. They are all value picks. Carriker because he protects the Pats against losing Warren. Wilson because he brings great talent to the CB position and DeOssie because he fills a clear need at ILB.

    Nice work overall, but I just can't see either of the Patriots picks. With Nelson and Spencer on the board, I can't see them trading up. Admittedly, both aforemented players get taken before the Patriots pick, but Revis is available at 24 and Pozluszny/Beason/Meriweather are available at 28.

    In addition, I don't like the value in that trade on the Patriots' side. The top 1st and the 3rd for the Packers' 1st would be a much fairer trade, or the Packers could throw in their 3rd or 4th to the original deal.

    As for the 2nd-rounder, I can't see us selecting Wilson over Weddle and Harris. I don't dislike Wilson, but the other two players would be vastly preferable. I would likely take Weddle here.

    At the 3rd-rounder, I can't imagine not taking Bradley or Piscatelli here. DeOssie is not a Day 1 pick.

    I would prefer a
    24 Revis
    28 Meriweather/Beason
    96 Bradley/Piscatelli (depending on the above pick)

    to a
    16 Carriker
    47 Wilson
    96 DeOssie

    Ironically enough, I like almost every other selection you make. Jarvis Moss goes a little high and Steve Smith goes a little low, but other than that fantastic work.

    Just as a reminder, many people thought Lofa Tatupu wasn't a 1st day pick either. He got taken in the 2nd round by the Seahawks and many people have rated him one of the STEALS of that draft.

    Sorry, but I can see DeOssie going to the Pats in the 2nd or 3rd round if they feel that is his value.

    I think he's a day-one pick too. That blend of size and athleticism is just too scarce, especially in this draft. (In fact, his measurables smoke the likes of Chad Greenway and Bobby Carpenter from last year as well.) Add in top-notch intangibles and it's a rare package. The level of competition is obviously the big risk factor...but that's why he slides as low as the 3rd round.

    16 and 47 is 1430 value points
    24 and 28 is 1400 value points

    Pats kick in a 6th rounder worth 16 points to even it up and give GB an extra pick and it's a much more likley deal.

    Good work. I could live with Carriker, Wilson and DeOssie on Day 1.

    Fins need Levi Brown if DC is going to have any kind of year. Miami D is strong as is, they need help on O.

    I don't really like that scenario too much.

    I like this one better-

    24 - Posluszny, ILB - I believe this guy will excel in the pats system with the talent that we already have at Dl and LB

    28 - Trade back, ( for the sake of this exercise we'll say Atlanta at 44 and we get their 75 pick as well)

    44 - Weddle, FS - another can't miss prospect, this guy can and will do anything you ask him to do. has patriots written all over him.

    75 - DeOssie, OLB - Pats put themselves in position to get Zak before the steelers and the jests come around again.

    91 - Piscitelli, SS - This one could go CB, maybe Tanard Jackson. But I go with Sabby here.

    And you will like this one.....





    4th round Comp pick - Sepulveda, P - No more punter of the month club. This guy comes in and becomes our punter for years to come.

    I like your draft, though I prefer Wendling to Weddle for the free safety position. Though Weddle is intriguing because of his versatility.

    As for Sepulveda, I think that you can rule out the Pats drafting a Punter because of them sending Malone and Baugher to NFLE AND keeping the right of first refusal on Todd Sauerbrun.

    I'm not a big Pos fan, but that's a fine looking draft. Basically it comes down to you liking Pos/Weddle/Piscatelli instead of Carriker/Wilson. I disagree, but it's certainly a defensible position. Two safeties on day one would surprise me.

    :( No, it's only an Uncle Heatster mockery and not the real deal, though I admire his style.
