    I'll let you know on September 1st. :D

    My guess is that none of the guys you mentioned. In fact, the Pats normally keep 10-12 DBs.

    Very competitive group. Obviously they want to upgrade, so if you were chasing receiviers in the secondary last year you had better watch your back.

    I don't think 10 DB's are too many to keep. Like Bruinz said, 10-12 should be expected, particularly w/ the inevitable injuries. We might even see another added today.

    And don't forget, we still have a ton of picks left, including 4 picks in the third round. I'd be shocked if another DB isn't picked !

    I wouldn't be surprised if another SAFETY is picked, or a big corner that would play safety.

    But I think they are set at CB now that they have added Butler.

    10 DB's is not too many for Game One. It certainly isn't too much for now. Tank could beat out Ruud for the #4 ILB position. Also, Spann and Richardson say hi.

    Well, no one can say the Pats are thin in the secondary anymore. They went to not having enough players who can play to probably too many.

    Not a Penn State fan, so I did not find oldenburg.. But according to Reiss he visited Gillette... So they valued him then..
