    We don't have that many more opening for rookies? Hope we can trade some back for picks next year. Anyone out there you like?
    I liked going defense but surprised no LB.

    Theres alot of depth at LB in this draft so im not surprised we didnt grab one on day 1. Im happy with Chung and Butler. Solid picks to help solidify our secondary. Brace is a great pick up. He can go in on third downs to give Wilfork the rest for the run plays. Volmer is questionable but i trust BB and who he chooses.

    Tomorrow, I can see us picking up Jaron Gilbert DE and an OLB and trade two of them for next years 2nd round picks.

    One of the picks can't be traded. I believe it is our compensation for the loss of Asante Samuel. We have three compensation picks, 3rd, 5th, and 6th. Sadly, none of them can be traded.

    Get a guard and a LB and move something into next year hopefully a two from a team that could be picking in the top half of the second next year.
    haven't really regrouped yet today to throw out a name but I think Johnson is still out there for a DE LB.


    I really like today by the way......Would have loved an OLB but I love Chung and Butler and Brace is great injury and FA insurance and with Scar a 2nd RD linemen could be gold.

    Why do people think that there are not many spots left for rookies. In the breakdown that I did, I listed out 14 roster spots that were up for grabs. Now, I know that not all of them will go to rookies.

    For instance, Wesley Britt and Ryan O'Callaghan are going to be in a fierce battle for the #3 and #4 Tackle spots with LaVoir and Vollmer. LaVoir and Vollmer will have the inside track, honestly. I wouldn't be surprised to see O'Callaghan traded for a conditional 6th rounder late in TC unless there is an injury at OT.

    With the addition of Chung and Butler, you can figure that Richardson, Spann, and Ventrone are on thin ice.

    I really think that the Pats will TRY and trade 2 of the picks from the 3rd round to next year. But if they can't, which could happen, those 8 guys are making this team.

    BB has never cut a draft pick that was taken higher than the 5th round during their 1st camp.

    EDIT: I would not be surprised to see the Pats keep all 3 picks tradeable 3rd round picks because of the status of the CBA at the end of the 2009 season.

    We need an OG, ILB, and maybe a FB. The rest can be traded to next year.

    Can't trade out if no one wants to trade with you. People could be looking at the Pats and saying, "Scr*w them. Let them cut some good players"

    Gilbert must have some shortcoming not widely known - or what I've been reading has been total junk. I've only seen his video clips but what I've seen looks good, his pre-draft assessments put him mostly in the second round, so this seems like a slip for a dude with his size and skills. Maybe we shouldn't get him?

    I really really like Sudbury, that's why I'm sure the Pats won't pick him, lol.

    Interesting point. It would be another example of BB being ahead of the curve. The guy is always thinking ahead.

    I wish we had gotten some of the 3/4 rounder picks today for next year. From what I have heard and seen; this was a very week draft with not much TOP talent. I'll watch the 3rd round tomorrow to see what we do.

    This is my fear, too. We've arranged the draft so that we end up with a record number in the category of waived-hope-they-end-up-on-practice-squad-Oops!-the-Vikings-picked-them-up.

    At this point, I just won't say anything about who I like tomorrow and, even further, I plan on hitting myself in the forehead with a ball peen hammer to induce amnesia, just in case having that kind of information stored in the synapses causes Belichick to immediately discount my pets.

    My knock on Gilbert is that he is not a 3-4 DE like some people seem to think. He would need to gain 20lbs which is tough to do anyway, and doing so he would not be the same player. I see him more in the Jarvis Green mold as a big man who excels rushing the passer.

    Well, looking at the pre-draft rankings (they've been pretty decent - except of course for Vollmer!) very good talent remains at -

    RB - only 4 drafted so far. Several backs with 2nd round numbers remain -

    G - only 2 taken. Duke Robinson, rated by some as the best G in draft other than Unger is still there.

    TE - only 2 picked from what was said to be a strong group. Nelson, Cook, Coffman, Ingram, all still out there. Some of those guys were considered close to 1st round talent.

    ILB - only 2 taken. Not the strong position in this year's draft but a number of these dudes were expected to be gone by now.

    QB - Only White went after the 1st round, 4 total so far.

    DE - 7 taken but this is a group usually tapped early, still some highly graded guys like Gilbert, Sidbury and Johnson left.

    So...if we don't trade, my guess is G, RB, TE, DE, in that order in the 3rd.

    Actually Gilbert is better suited for the 3-4, than the 4-3. He has a good wing span plus the size/frame.. He's only about 12 pounds from being 300 pounds.. At this point in the draft, I'd like to see the pats take a shot at him.


    We could always use more Lineman..

    Gilbert was 288 at the combine and at his Pro-Day. Gilbert would have to add about 5-10 lbs and its not that tough. Also, from what I heart, Gilbert lost some weight prior to the combine.

    So, I have to disagree with you that he's not a 3-4 DE.
