    Who is the one player in the draft you think will be a Patriot by the end of the draft?

    Doesn't matter what day, what pick, what round.

    My pick: Casey Hayward, DB, Vanderbilt. I definitely think he's the kind of underrated prospect BB will want to take a chance on. I think we'll draft him as a Free Safety since he's not a real press corner, though he could also help out at corner in a pinch since that's where he played his college career.

    Josh Chapman DT Alabama: I think he's a Patriots type player and was probably overshadowed with all the bigger names at Alabama. Everyone knows that the skill position player can't do their job if it doesn't get done in the trenches. Chapman was a key guy for them.

    I couldnt agree more, he's in a position of need for us, coached by Saban, and he's got a lot of upside. If I would bet on us taking anyone it would be him.

    I think NT needy teams will probably prioritise him before we do although I think he'd be a great pick. Lot's of talk that teams are very cautious about his injury and that he won't get picked before the third round.

    My choice is Ron Brooks. We've put a lot of work in to him and he's a nice fit schematically.

    Also, there's been lot's of talk recently about Casey Hayward, even as a potential first rounder.

    This is a good draft if you are taking a DT lots of good choices in all rounds. I could definitely see some of these guys slip just by the sheer number of players available to take. If BB really covets the guy tho he could take him in the 2nd round. He tends to overdraft players (ie Vollmer) that he think will fit the system

    Ron Brooks is a great choice too.

    I won't be disappointed in big Josh at all. But we already have Wilfork, Love and Brace for that position, just not sure BB will see it as a priority as KC, IND or PITT might do.

    I'm going to bet that Brace will be cut.

    I think Chapman's injury will allow us to get a bargain player, similar to Gronk's injury frightening off other teams.

    I could see them taking Chapman with #62. My pick is Vinny Curry - he seems to be what they want in an OLB or could be a pass rushing DE in the 4-3.

    And Omar Boldin with their #3.
