    ...in some way shape or form.

    Guys i'm rooting for include Freddie Roach, Pierre Woods and Jon Stone.

    Long shots to make the team but guys i think that if they dont make it here they pick up somewhere else and be effective.

    What???? No, Hank Poteat?

    I would say that Hank is still a dog to make the team.

    I don't know if he is underdog because he was a fourth round pick but he is an underdog in the shoes he has to fill. Stephen Gostkoski !

    Hank is a lock. (Whether he makes the team on the 53 or as Captain of the Shadow Roster at first, I'm still not sure.) :D

    tough to say before seeing preseason games. Last year it was Bam and Mallard/Alexander.

    Mincey & Roach - we need some young LB.
    Gardner - we need a solid veteran backup ILB.
    Andrews - we need a good, young PR.

    My turn,

    Mincey, Woods, Roach, and the skinny kid, Eric Davis.

    I'm rooting hard for Patrick Pass whom I think this team needs.

    Interesting - I'm hoping he doesn't make the team because it would mean that those with (IMO) more upside (Hill, Sullivan, Smith) looked pretty decent in camp/preseason.

    CB Brown has caught my eye. He's not stunning people like Gay did a couple of years ago, but I think this kid has some talent.

    He's not picking up the playbook as well as Gay did, so maybe a year on the PS is in order. At the rate we lose DBs that could translate into a mid season activation to the main squad.

    Stone, Gardner and O'Callaghan.

    I hope all three make the team, but don't expect it.

    Pierre Woods. Pierre is a great kid (he was a true frosh my senior year) and has a ton of talent. He could thrive in this system with some direction.

    I do not expect either of these guys to be there come week 1 but...

    Keron Henry--UConn alum, need more of those in the league!

    Pierre Woods--Young LB is always welcome.

    Tell me why I knew that you were going to say that before I read your post?

    Has any former Michigan player ever played well in a Patriots uniform?:eek:

    Johnathan Sullivan - as I am thinking about buying some McDonalds stock and the share price is certain to double if he has a good income by making the team. (Or please let me know the CLOSEST fast food restaurant to the RAZOR with a drive thru).

    Jon Sullivan- If he makes the team it means he showed BB something, after that, maybe he will catch 93's work ethic and finally live up to his lofty draft status.

    Oh come on! Say what you like, but that cornerback fellah Ty Law was pretty decent.

    And I recall that 6th rounder from 2000 made the squad.

    Rich Musinski. You vicious vermin (or whatever they call the Michigan mascot) have nothing on the William and Mary "Tribe," whence Musinski sprung.

    Caveat: I understand there's no reason to believe he'll make the team. And to look at him, he's not tight.

    Okay, also throw in O'Callaghan... I like the idea that he's smart enough and athletic enough to make use of that gigantic body to clear some room for Corey and Kool-Aid.

    Jhhn Stone - he is much further along than any rookie and may be able to contribute right away (was cut due to a very good group in Oakland last year). He seems to catch just about everything and looks shifty and quick for a small guy.
