    Hey everyone ... I know there's been plenty of love for Connor Barwin here on the board, so I thought folks would dig this -- I talked with him one-on-one over the weekend (and got some quotes from Mike Mayock), and posted the story over at WEEI.com:

    Christopher Price | Barwin busting out of traditional mold

    Thanks,
    Chris

    Awesome work Chris! WEEI doesn't know how luck they are to have you.

    I personally loved the end :D

    Weird... we care about water balloons, but Merriweather shooting dudes in the butt is cool ? I like it.

    I wonder how serious they are about getting him - because usually when everyone on the board falls in love with a darft prospect, BB rarely nabs him.

    First off Meriweather's incident was self defense and he shot his gun in the air to scare the criminals off.

    I am sure they were much more concerned with the gun incident and the truth there than the water baloon incident. I think the reason Barwin mentioned it was because he was amazed at how thorough we were to have uncovered that.

    asking about something doesn't dictate how much it matters....just thongs they wanted to clear up with the guy and see how they react.

    This guy is overrated, he was smart to compare himself to Vrabel as a LB/TE combo, but his best skill is PR and interviewing.

    Nice interview, Chris. I see Barwin as a better fit in NE than anywhere, but I wonder if they'll spend a first-rounder on him.

    Great job as always Chris.

    Question: "While everyone is in agreement that he’s a first-rounder..." Could you elaborate a little more on this line please?

    Thanks! He was a good interview who seemed genuinely intrigued about the possibility of playing for the Patriots.

    I've seen a boatload of mocks that all have him in the first round--the final 10 or so picks of the first round, but the first round. There's a scout or two who saw him play at the Senior Bowl that also called him a first-rounder.
