    Note that these gentlemen are not necessarily the best at their positions (I find it hard to believe the Pats will spend a first on a QB or RB, for example). Some of them I've never seen play, but the system they play in and their measurables have them at least on my radar. I'm not sure how much college ball I'll be able to watch with a new toddler on my hands, but I'm going to give an effort to see these guys play. Any additional commentary will of course be welcome:

    Offense
    QB Sam Kellar, 6-4, 227, Arizona St
    RB Courtney Lewis, 5-11, 210, Texas A&M
    RB Albert Young, 5-10, 210, Iowa

    Amen Brother. This guy is going to be really good. I can't wait to see how he does this year. Hopefully the Pats will somehow trade up for him (since we're not planning on picking high :D).

    And for local ties, I believe Andre Caldwell is Reche's brother, and Zak DeOssie is Steve's son. If Dad was smart, Zak can long snap also.

    As a newbie to the site and a fellow Nebraska Cornhusker Fan, a sleeper is the TE at Nebraska Matt Herian-he would have easily been in the First 2 Rounds of the NFL Draft if he wouldnt have blew out his knee. He redshirted last year and could be a good pickup. What is weird is seeing NO USC players there or there great WRs. Take Care

    You know Belichick doesn't draft TEs, right? :D

    Seriously, though, I'd at least have added Jeff Samardzija to the list; pursuing baseball should drop his stock to the point where the Pats might see value in picking him.

    I'd have highlighted the names from the farm teams (FSU, ND, UF), since I'd put pretty good odds at least one of them will get drafted this year. . . .

    I think right now the scouting report on Samardzija says "Not 100% committed to football". I don't see any way Belichick would draft him unless he falls to late on the second day.

    I'm not stupid enough to try and read Belichick's mind re: Samardzija right now. But I can say with confidence that (A) Weis will give BB the lowdown, and (B) Belichick will do what makes sense.

    One question though--if Samardzija decided that he were 100% committed to football, would you want him on the Pats?

    I didn't see Anthony Waters, LB, from Clemson, on the list. Not only is he a first round prospect, but has what BB looks for in a 'backer. And I'm sure he's drooled over him from watching Tye Hill film.

    Also, that Desmond Bishop kid will have a monster year on a monster "D".

    Edit: Adam Carriker, DL, Nebraska, 6-6, 295, 43 TKL, 9.5 Sacks, 7.5 TFL & 3 PBU last year, OUCH! (Seymour clone?)

    Re: Penn State's Paul

    I don't think he fits the Pats scheme, although I didn't think Vilma could either, but we'll find out this fall if his size/style fits a 3-4.

    One out of three ain't bad.

    I still think Waters might have been a first rounder if not for his serious injury. He'll be a good pick in the middle round if he's fully recovered. In '05 he had 109 tackles, 13.5 TFL, 1.5 Sacks and 7 PBU.

    You weren't wrong about Bishop either, it's his athleticism that's hurting his stock, not his production.

    Well done! :rocker:

    And out of those 105, 28 made my final board. Of course, many "developed" character questions and some didn't come out after Junior year.

    Yup, they don't trade for or sign the Corey Dillon's and the Donte Stallworths of the world either.

    Anthony Waters may not be ready to play in 2007 as he recovers from a knee. He could be drafted late with the intention to PUP/IR him in 2007; and expect to get a very good player for 2008. The Pats are in a situation to wait for him, whereas other clubs need more immediate help.

    It might br the equivalent of trading a 6th or 7th in 2007, for a 1st or 2nd in 2008.
