    Would love to see us grab him with our first third rounder at #75 and probably a good chance he would be available.

    He might be available in the 3rd, stranger things have happened.

    He's kind of like Kevin Faulk #2 though. Do you really need two of them? Can this guy hold onto the ball better? After all, Kevin Faulk had all kinds of rushing records at LSU. Plus he sounds better suited to indoors, than out. Maybe not.

    BB likes big RBs also. D'arrius Howard in the 5th/6th is a darkhorse.

    Why not? Who are the teams that are going to be looking at him in the 2nd round?

    SOME GUYS are going to slip into the 3rd round and even farther.

    I am on board for all the smurf RB's...upgrade Faulk and Pass this year and maybe Dillon next year...too risky taking a back to replace Dillon. Too much money invested in 1 position and we need Dillon's leadership which would turn sour if he's pissed all year.

    Good post, and my thoughts exactly. Better to look mid rounds for RB, WR. The drop in talent is not significant at these positions from rd 1 to 4 in most years, and the potential for late round steals and early round busts is extremely high for both positions. Look how many great NFL backs and WR's went rd 3 or later.

    Drew can return Punts

    I think he averaged something like 28.5 yards per return last year. This would be an ideal place for the Pats to upgrade themselves. He may be too small to ever get on the field if BB insists he be able to pick up blitzing LBs and Safeties.
