    Pretty sure WR wont be on our radar for our first 3 or 4 picks. Looking at our history of drafting WR, who you guys like from the potential free agents?

    Always been a fan of Mike Sims-Walker from Jacksonville. If he can stay healthy...big IF...I think he can be a good player for us. He should come cheaper than these other big names due to become FA.

    Braylon Edwards
    Santonio Holmes
    Sidney Rice
    Steve Smith (NY)
    James Jones
    Steve Breaston

    Mike Sims-Walker would be the best fit but i dont see the pats signing any of the bigger name WR's on the market if they do sign one it will be a JAG or some vet thet will take a big pay cut

    the pats need to use Julian Edelman more he only had 7 rec in 15 game and they need to keep Taylor Price active on sundays to see if he can play or not

    I agree with you that WR should be addressed through FA as opposed to the draft - we have 3 young WRs already that we are not likely to upgrade with anyone except the top 2 guys in this draft.

    The only one from that list I would spend money on is Holmes. The others are to inconsistant or injury prone. James Jones would be nice if the price is right. And this may seem small, but being that he played in GB, we know he can play in poor weather. Thats a concern I have about Sims-Walker, or generally and WR/RB who played in a warm weather city or dome. Can they make the switch to a cold weather team and handle the elements? Being that Holmes will command the biggest money, Id be happy with Jones or Sims-Walker.

    Holmes was given a top round RFA tender. The only way that changes is if the new CBA changes his status. So, it's highly unlikley he'll be available.

    I also doubt that Edwards would be on the Pats radar. Breaston does his best work in the slot.

    Not sure if Pats fans can live with the drops by Jones and Smith

    Sidney Rice is an intriguing free agent. Size, Speed, Hands. The question would be his route running.

    :agree:

    Even Brady said they need to get Edelman more involved.

    What about his durability? He's been injured in 3 out of his 4 years in the NFL.

    That would be the other reason why he's intriguing. Whether or not he can stay healthy.

    The Pats, under Belichick, have over-looked that sort of thing in the past. They did so with Tim Dwight. And they did so with Branch.

    How's this for a shocker (just posted) from Draftek Simulation #4!

    New England trades #17 and #28 to Cleveland for #6 to draft A.J Green:confused:

    The rest of their draft goes like this:

    33 Christian Ballard DE
    60 Jordan Todman RB
    74 Rodney Hudson G
    92 Dontay Moch LB
    124 Curt Porter T
    156 Derrick Locke RB
    184 Justin Rogers CB

    :eek:

    Sidney Rice would be best case scenario at receiver, but the patriots won't pay him. They'll probably target sims-walker and either tandon doss or randall cobb in the draft.
