    Several reports have left Deaderick off the 53 man projection. Why? Of all our true DT's he appears to have the most upside and he is the youngest.

    Is he not performing in camp?

    Some people forget that he was a starter last year, and not even a liability of a starter like 50% of this board's binky, Barrett.

    Re: Brandon Deaderick not on the roster?

    BBass, the good news is that none of those projecting the roster at this time have any decision making authority. Relax, it's what we do at this time of year. This team has a long history of being stubborn and making its own personnel decisions. I'm sure you'd be able to track and confirm this trend.

    Yeah I liked him a lot, thought he was more then solid toward the end of the season. I think playing inside he can really provide a good pass rush.

    Yes Please............

    Brandon Deaderick not on the roster? is a terrible thread title...

    "Brandon Deaderick not on the roster?" is not remotely close to "Why do most not predict Brandon Deaderick to make the final roster?"

    Which is much more accurate to what you are asking. Brandon Deaderick is on the roster currently.

    Re: Brandon Deaderick not on the roster?

    Yeah I figured that but I was actually talking about the ESPN reporters, so I was trying to find out if he wasn't showing up in camp or something.

    I know him and Fanene are similar, but Fanene is 30 years old and likely hit is ceiling already.

    That's a good question imo. I don't actually recall hearing anything about him and i like him quite alot.

    Could the change in scheme be hurting him?

    Unless you are counting Reiss as an ESPN guy, and i don't think he has said anything about Deaderick being cut, I think that there are many here who have a much better idea of who will make this team than most of the ESPN "experts," who are really looking at the league generically and not at individual teams as closely.

    I think most here have Deaderick as pretty much a lock this year. Brace, Warren, Pryor, and others are on the bubble, Wilfork, Love, deaderick, and Jones are Locks. I consider Bequette a lock but i'm sure there are more than a few who would disagree. I also think Carter will be back during the season.

    Re: Brandon Deaderick not on the roster?

    Not really pertaining to Deaderick specifically, but I could see the Pats keeping fewer big DLs than usual for a few reasons:
    Only two big DLs in the base defense
    DEs getting DT snaps in subpackages
    The inevitable return of Gerard Warren sometime during the season

    There were quite a few posters here who didn't like Bequette leading up to the draft and i'm sure they still aren't big fans.

    Re: Brandon Deaderick not on the roster?

    Fair enough. There are some who regularly post on this board that can hold their own with many of the media scribes. In the professional media, predicting the 53-man roster is an assignment, here, it is a passion, and those who get paid to do it certainly don't have a monopoly on accuracy.

    I'm on the fence regarding Deaderick. The Patriots don't seem like they will be running as many three-man fronts and Deaderick's value in the 4-3 is relatively limited. At this point I'd rather have Ron Brace of the two, although maybe New England will keep both players.

    Whether Deaderick makes it or not is a great problem for the Patriots to have come cut down day. If Deaderick is on the bubble, then the defensive line will be fine. He's a good player with solid experience.

    The depth at all levels on both sides of the ball on this team is impressive, especially if the offensive line firms up with Mankins, Waters and Vollmer in the locker room come opening day.

    It's been a long time - back to '05, really, when the team had depth everywhere and the final cuts would be snapped up by other teams the way they will be this year.

    I don't trust Brace one iota to stay healthy. Maybe if they cryogenically freeze the guy until week 14 he'll be a contributor through the playoffs?

    Guy has had a less than stellar career to say the least. Hopefully your right and he does fit what the Pats are trying to do this year.

    Deaderick is safe. I don't remember anyone leaving him off the projected roster. I think the board loyalists would have taunted them into a quivering mass of jello.

    That's Ron Brace you're thinking of. ;)

    [​IMG]

    I KEED. I KEED!! That's all MUSCLE, baby!! :D

    I haven't given up on Brace, yet, and he may well be on the verge of that Break Out ~ or Break In ~ season that's been so long in coming.

    For his sake, he'd better be. :eek:

    Deaderick >> Brace in my book. From all reports the Pats were using him exclusively at DT in camp so far, and he's been ahead of Brace. IIRC, he played both inside and out at Alabama.

    I don't think Brace makes the team. Reiss has suggested the Pats may trade him, though it's pure speculation. I think he's shown some flashes but not enough consistency, and after 3 years consistency is what's needed. Marcus Harrison and Marcus Forston have showed as much, and both have more upside. JMHO.

    I'd love to see some conditional late picks for camp cuts. Have to be good teams that are desperate and think the cuttees will get grabbed off waivers before their turn though.

    Reiss speculated that the Giants could be interested in Brace given their need at the DT position:

    Quick-hit thoughts around NFL & Pats - New England Patriots Blog - ESPN Boston

    Again, it's pure speculation (as Reiss admits).

    It's pretty likely that the Pats will cut a lot of guys who will end up making other teams' rosters. Whether they can get anything for them is a whole different matter.

    Don't know why Deaderick and Brace are bing compared..we need a heavy presence on the goal line...Deaderick weighs in at 305lbs.Deaderick will make he roster, but not at the expense of someone like Brace.

    We have Big Vince (325), Warren (315) and the Brace (330) who has conditioned very well. We ideally need two of these guys for our goal line package at least. I prefer The younger Brace myself but you can't go much wrong with either.

    I really liked what I saw out of Forston and Harrison. I see no room for them so I hope that at least Forston can make it onto PA. Not sure if Harrison has PA eligibility?

    I'll take Marcus Harrison (6'3" 318#, 28 years old) over both of Warren and Brace.

    Harrison's not PS eligible.

    My personal 6 man DT/DE squad:

    1. Vince Wilfork 6'1" 325#+
    2. Jonathan Fanene 6'4" 290#
    3. Kyle Love 6'1" 315#
    4. Brandon Deaderick 6'4" 305#
    5. Marcus Harrison 6'3" 318#
    6. Marcus Forston 6'3" 308#

    PUP: Myron Pryor 6'1" 310#
    Shadow Roster: Gerard Warren: 6'4" 315#+ (listed as much as 330#)

    If Pyror gets healthy he can likely replace one of Forston or Harrison.

    Harrison is back down to about 310lbs. The main reason no one wanted the guy in 2011 was the fact he was over weight and unfit. His frame just can't take the added weight. He has a nice first step but not much else.

    Played on a pretty average D Line in 2008/2009 which only boasted Tommie Harris and never really lived up to much. Barely played 2010. Failed his conditioning test for panthers in 2011. Signed and released by us all in the space of 24 hours.

    I'd want another heavier body in there and I don't see anything more in Harrison...a guy who didn't play a down in 2011. He has to prove a lot to earn a spot.

    Brace and Warren provide that...they're superb in goal line packages and I'd settle for either.

    Forston is absolutely a PS guy. I think Harrison will find himself on the streets again.

    I'm inclined to agree on Brace > Harrison or Forston.

    I thought Harrison flew under the radar against NO but had a good game. I'll be very interested in what he does against Philly.

    Agreed. At some point it has to stop being worth it to cut other players who could have contributed for a guy who history indicates will probably be IRed by midseason.
