    The Pats have drafted Larry English, Louis Delmas and Tyson Jackson with their first three picks in the draft and are up at No. 58 in the second round. Who's the pick here? These are the best remaining prospects, according to draftcountdown.com. Just a mock I'm working on. I'm thinking Williams from Penn State, I get a feeling he is going to be one of the better receivers in this year's draft.

    My Opinion assuming no trade.

    Ingram TE Florida

    PT55

    I don't like any of the picks available on your board, which is one of the reasons I can see us trading up from #58 (58 + 89 get us to around #43 or so). Based on what I see, all of the OL options are gone (Jamon Meredith, Eric Wood, Max Unger), we've already taken DL, LB and S.

    James Casey would have been my pick, but we don't need another TE right now. Brian Robiskie might be worth it, but I think he has a limited upside. So with that in mind, I would trade the pick into 2010.

    I would take the best WR on the board (Derrick Williams or Juaquin Iglesias) then go OL at #89. I really think that there are some good OL value especially at Guard and Center that can be found in the 3rd or 4th round this year.

    Nice draft so far though.

    Shawn Nelson is VERY tempting!

    But I think the safe choice would be Jonathan Luigs.

    There is some great TE value as pointed out where you are sitting right now. I know we have a few established TE's but none under a long term contract and a young kid to push them would be nice. I really think that one of our TE's is going to be cut or traded at some point with a young guy getting drafted.

    I would probably go Luigs. but you would be justified by taking your pick of Robiskie, Williams, or Iglesias at WR, Francies, or perhaps Coffman or Nelson for TE. Coffman's foot is still < 80%...so he's a good candidate for PUP or IR redshirt.

    Almost exactly my thoughts, though I'd also toss in Gerald Cadogan as a dark-horse OL.

    That's unlike you. His vertical, broad jump, 40 splits, 3 Cone, and shuttle are all among the worst of the OLs. I think Lang or Murtha probably make more sense if you want to reach for a tackle.

    I'd like to go offensive line, but it just seems that there is no value here. I think I may go best offensive line available in the third round, and here take either Nelson or Williams.

    Yes, it is, isn't it? Go figure. Maybe I just got lured in by that Pats-OL-style Celtic surname.

    In general, unlike Mayo, I'm fine with the value here. Nelson, Luigs & Robiskie in particular all seem like solid picks. Nelson isn't a well-rounded player, but he could be a nice pairing with Baker long-term.

    The way your draft had unfolded, you would get no arguements from me as both are good picks.

    BB may opt for Luigs or Mickens.

    Jarius Byrd or if you don't want him then, Paul Kruger.

    You never draft who I tell you to draft anyway.

    In the next draft, I promise I will get Clay Matthews, and Connor Barwin if he's there.
