    Yes, fan mocks from FootballsFuture. At least neither of these folks are Pats fans.

    Akeem Ayers at #17 looks like an automatic fail. Now watch us draft him. :p

    Option C, neither gets out of the batter's box.

    I'm going to make a superhuman effort at looking on the bright side:

    Sheard at #60 is a pretty good pick.

    i don't know if i am being way over critical here but akeem ayers... i just don't think he is very good. he seems slow and stiff to me and i just don't like him for the pats.

    Can anyone tell me why people have in him the 1st round and some in the top 15? I really don't like him anywhere even with our 33

    First one fails way more. They have the Pats passing on Watt AND Aldon Smith for Ayers :bricks:

    What is this power Akeem Ayers has to cloud men's minds? Good but not great productivity, poor measurables, and a lack of football instincts that's bound to be exposed at the next level. How can that look like a top-20 pick to anyone?

    He had size/speed going for him. Then he measured up at 6' 2.5" and ran a 4.8 40.

    Other than that, he has versatility, supposedly between any of the 7 LB spots in 3-4 or 4-3, and is pretty decent in coverage. However, he can't shed blocks, is a pile-watcher, and has no pass rush moves other than coming in untouched. As a pass-rusher, I compare him to Adalius Thomas. Not going to make anything happen on his own, but if there's a whole to exploit, he can go through it.

    Ah, so he's Gary Guyton without the speed. Irresistible!

    Pretty much. I think Ayers' run struggles are more due to effort and Guyton's are more due to size, but they are pretty similar.

    Update on B:

    58. New England - Quinton Carter, FS, Oklahoma
    60. New England - traded with 2011 5 to Detroit for #65 (acquired through another trade) and 2011 4

    H'mmm, draft failure has an addictive quality all it's own.
