    There has been mocks upon mocks done with several players mentioned as Patriots picks at #7. Some of them I see, I just shake my head at.

    There are also threads here that mention all kinds of guys that the Patriots should take at #7. So let's now do it in reverse. Which players have you seen on mocks or player ranking that you would hate to have the Patriots take at #7.

    Here is my first one. -Cromartie! If his last name was not Cromartie, I don't think any mock would have him going as high as #7. For everything I've read about him, he is over rated and and probably a 2nd rounder at best.

    Needless to say, there would be no way that I take Matt Ryan with the seventh pick in the 2008 NFL Draft.

    Any corner. Or Guard.

    I think McKelvin is a legit candidate at #7. I don't think Albert is.

    Brendan Albert. Not at #7. Maybe at #20.

    Matt Ryan, Glenn Dorsey and Sedrick Ellis.

    Not that I don't think that they are top-10 talent; it's just that you cannot draft someone #7 overall who may not start until 2010.

    BTW, the FO will not draft Ryan; they just better not draft the other 2.

    I definitely don't think Cromartie is the best value us No. 7, but I wouldn't be completely pissed since we do need a CB and he is at worst the third-best corner in the draft. I guess the worst would be any receiver or quarterback at No. 7. Now that would be just horrible.

    I've seen a few random folks on the Interwebs suggesting the Pats might take a backup to Brady with #7 (gee, no irony there), but, seriously, have any reputable mocks had the Pats taking Ryan? [Not trying to harp, because clearly all of the others have been linked to the Pats--though not all at the #7 pick--except for Ryan.]

    I don't want to see any CB at 7. I don't think any of them are worthy of the 7th pick. Of course, if we drafted one, I'd obviously trust BB's opinion over mine :p

    Agreed. Matt Ryan would be a huge waist of a pick for the Pats.
    Sure. Pay top 10 salary to a rookie back up QB.
    Yeah. I think that would be the worse thing they could do.
    Of course that won't happen.
    If they can't acquire one of the top lbs then I hope they trade down.
    Maybe even a deferred number one from somebody like San Fran.:D

    I have yet to see any mock havin us taking Ryan. I'm not sold on Groves and think he is a big risk at #7.

    The thread isn't about "what player on Pats' mocks would you NOT want to see taken at #7". The thread is about general players that would be a waste of our time if we took them at 7. Personally, I can't think of a bigger waste of a pick than Matt Ryan.

    Any cornerback or guard. It would be really dissapointing if they drafted Brandon Albert.

    Actually, that's exactly what the thread was intended to be. Reread the original post! It's way too easy to choose ANY player you don't want picked that high.


    I've flirted with LT at #7, but no more. I'd even rather that they "settle" for the best cornerback in the draft rather than take an o-lineman that high, or any offensive player for that matter.

    #54 Jersey

    :eek: QB Matt Ryan, BC :eek:
    :bricks:(note: post-pick trade with Dolphins for RB Darren McFadden). :bricks:
    OL Roy Schuening, Oregon St
    OLB/DE Marcus Howard, UGA
    CB DeJuan Tribble, BC
    MLB Stanford Keglar, Purdue
    WR/KR Dorien Bryant, Purdue
    TE Kellen Davis, Michigan State
    OL John Sullivan, ND

    That's the Pats draft, IMHO, like it or not.

    OK, I'm going to make an honest try to make sense of this.

    You're saying that the Dolphins draft McFadden #1 when they really want Matt Ryan, then pray that Ryan drops all the way to the Patriots at #7. Then they swap, presumably taking the Pats' 2nd-rounder and, say, their #2 next year. So the Pats trade a high #1 and 2 #2s for a running back to split carries with Maroney...then can't afford to sign him because their rookie cap is slotted to #7.

    Nope, I still don't get it. :)

    (Seriously, even if I wanted the player, post-pick trades don't work because of the rookie cap.)

    Sorry, I put Ryan in there as a horrible, horrible, horrible, idea, not anything I have seen on a credible mock.
