    The Pats currently have four picks in the third (one of which is an untradeable comp pick), zero picks in the fourth, their comp picks in the fifth and sixth, and their own pick in the seventh.

    Any thoughts (wild-a** guesses) on what the Pats do with that bounty of thirds?

    Good question. I was wondering about it as well. I assume they might trade a couple of them for a couple of second rounders next year. Otherwise, I can't figure out what they will do with them.

    They are probably going to either have to trade up or into next year's draft. Maybe trade for a veteran who came expendable from rtoday's draft. They still have too many draft picks than what will make the team. Gotta get some value for some of the picks.

    As far as targets. I think LB is still an issue. I think Jason Taylor is likely to be a Pat in the next month or so, but they could get a guy to groom for the future assuming Crable or Woods aren't that guy. Still need depth inside and not convinced Guyton can be an every down ILB.

    Sign Jason Taylor as an OLB and draft Jason Williams or someone like him for ILB depth. Umm there's not a lot of needs left to fill. Trade into 2010? I think Jarron Gilbert will go off the board early tomorrow so we probably won't get him. We might do something like draft another backup QB and a Tight End.

    Jason Taylor is not signing or else he would have done so already. The Pats need pass rush and Taylor won't bring it. He would be jag in the rotation with Woods and TBC.
    I could see the Pats taking a specialist like Micheal Johnson to bring in on 3rd downs and get better in the pass rush department. We can have all the DBs in the world, but without a pass rush it won't mean a thing.

    I like these guys.

    J.Luigis - C/G - Arkansas
    A. Cook - TE - So. Carolina
    J. Gilbert - DE - San Jose St
    S.McKillop - ILB - Pitt
    D. Butler - WR - PSU
    A. Brown - RB - NC ST
    L.Sidbury - OLB/DE - Richmond
    J.Iglesias- WR - Oklahoma
    J.Phillips - LB - TCU

    There's some good players there. I didn't mention a couple of tackles and db's because we've already gone there.

    What you think is apparently not what Belichick thinks. He is saying from what he didn't draft, is that Guyton is a current and a future permanent starter. Further he thinks he has a hidden gem or two at OLB that he is incubating.

    Yeah, I like Gilbert, Cornelius Ingram, Shawn Nelson, Kraig Urbik, Jarrett Dillard... lotta good guys out there.

    Generally speaking, you'd say they should go LB, but who? Jason Williams is still there. Tyrone McKenzie, Frantz Joseph, Julius Williams (watch for him because BB hinted at some lower-round Connecticut guys he liked), Jasper Brinkley, Sidbury.

    Lots of good wideouts left, lots of running backs, and lots of good interior linemen.

    BOARD AT 65 as we have picks at 73, 83, 89 and 97.
    DE Gilbert
    TE Cook
    TE Nelson
    LT Meredith
    OL Caldwell
    OL Lang
    DE Michael Johnson
    FS Rahsad Johnson
    S Chip Vaughn
    LB Jason Williams
    LB Brinkley
    LB McKillop
    LB Beckwith
    LB Ellerbe
    WR Thomas
    WR Iglesias
    WR Murphy
    WR/KR Wallace

    Belichick has shown that he is willing to make a reach of half a round or so compared to Gosselin's values so all these players could be in play in the 3rd.

    Just a couple of these make this a decently draft.

    Jamon Merredeth OG. We know they scouted him big and he is really a third round grade.

    Jarron Gilbert DE to work as Seymours replacement.

    Michael Johnson DE/OLB. Rated top ten prior to the 2008 season. 11.5 sacks. 4.5 speed 6'7" (remind us of anyone?).

    James Casey TE. Ran the Wild cat very well thank you. Best hands in the draft.

    Jason X. Williams ILB wild man 4.6 speed.

    Jasper Brinkey ILB. Maybe the best ILB prospect in the end.

    Austin Collie WR. Good size and speed. Over 100 receptions last year. Best route runner in the draft.

    Andre Brown RB. BB scouted this kid. North and south runner with speed.

    Duke Robinson G.Second round pick by most.

    Franz Jospeph ILB speed and production.

    Ramsees Barden 6' 6" WR with 4.54 speed.

    In the later rounds:

    Johnny Knox WR 4.29 speed and not all that small.

    Devon Moore RB. Terrific production and can catch the ball.

    Nick Reed OLB Oregon (check him out)6'2", 245 lbs.
    4.71 40 Yard Dash, 4.28 20 Yard Shuttle, 6.96 3-Cone Drill
    31.5 Inch Vertical Jump, 24 Bench Reps

    SENIOR SEASON STATS:
    53 Tackles, 18 Assists, 20 TFL, 13 Sacks, 2 PD, 12 QBH, 2 FF, 5 FR


    Others?: Tyrone McKensie ILB. Speed and great production.
    Derrick Williams WR/KR Penn. St.

    I like those specific in bold.

    They're in a great position to fill a couple of need areas. Especially at guard. Some very good TEs are still available, who can really help too...

    Here are the Pats 3rd round picks on Day 2. I don't expect them to use all of em on players.

    3rd round
    #73 (9th)
    #83 (19th)
    #89 (25th)
    #97 (33rd COMP/UNTRADEABLE)

    If they could get a future 2nd out of this group of picks, that would be brilliant.

    PS For the first time in a long time, the Pats don't have any 4th round picks. So don't be surprised if they trade back into the early 4th with one of their 3rds.

    I'd be good with Greene or Jennings. I'm not sure we'll even take a RB though unless Maroney has been deemed worthless.

    I'm thinking we take a tight end for sure, maybe a backup guard then trade into 2010 or maybe trade down into the 4th.
