Well, myself and an array of fans from lesser teams are off to Boston in the morning. This is the last chance I have to prove my uncanny ability to make completely wild guesses about what the Pat's will do this weekend. Since I expect the guesser's and the studiers to have about the same accuracy rating, I'll tell you now I fit right in the middle. Been reading the Mock's and rankings, and draft history, but haven't had much time to dig up video or read long interviews. So, here we go. Maybe I'll see some of you at Vince's Def Jam on Saturday. Round #1 #23 Rey Maualuga. I believe the Pats will be willing to move a few slots to get him, also - BUT I think Guyton is gonna make it a hard job to win. This will be an amazing 3-man rotation when Tedy retires. Round #2 #34 Sean Smith. Can this guy fall far enough? I think so. #47 Julius Peppers. Pick #47, plus a conditional pick next year will probably get this done. I think Pierre Woods may also become part of the deal. #58 Max Unger. Forget projections, we'll see by pick #4 we've guessed a LOT wrong. Round #3 #89 Pat White. Gadget player at first glance, this guy has the goods to be a useful roster spot and #3 QB all at once. #97 Nic Harris. I'm not positive, but I feel like this pick can be gambled on. Seems like a young guy who could do the Tank Williams thing by next year. Round #4 #124 Terrence Knighton. Time to upgrade the back-up NT for low $$$. I also think this guy could click faster than his draft grade. Round #5 #170 Augustus Parrish. Time to get a swing in training. Parrish and LeVoir would be nice back-up options at OT. Round #6 #199 Nader Abdallah. I believe this guy could project into the Pats D-Line. Whether the gaping holes come next year or not, they will come. #207 Anthony Parker. One last pick for the O-Line. Guards feel like a dime-a-dozen, after last year I say depth - can I get a witness? Round #7 #234 Aaron Brown. RB? Yeah, definitely. But I also believe Law-Firm makes the roster this year. So there you go. Mock my mock - I'm nutty that way. A day one of Rey M., Sean S., Julius P., and Max Unger would make for a satisfying one, indeed. I think the rest of the draft needs to eye-ball the trenches, though.
