I have been dancing around with who the Patriots should pick in the first round. I have looked at all of the players, WR, DE's, OLB,ILB, CB, FS, SS, OT, & RB. to me the only player that makes sense for the Patriots to draft is Patrick Willis. ILB's who can play in the Patriots D ar getting harder to find. Willis can do that. We need a guy who can eventually replace Tedy. We need a guy who can play next to Tedy and learn from him. Willis is the only guy in this draft that can do that and is as close to a sure thing as you can get. Also, this would allow Vrabes to move back outside in a rotation. I believe that we can find a FS or SS later in the draft that will be good ones. Now we may have to trade up to get him using both of our first rounders. If we find a willing trading partner, like GB, we should be able to get a second or third rounder in return as well as Willis. So on 3/12/07 I'm declaring Patrick Willis as the only logical Patriots first round draft pick. This could be subject to change if additional information comes out. Now tell me where I am wrong. But, be gentle.
