    for the 2007 draft? Assume you are running the whole draft. How do you draft based on ratios by position?

    For example, assume the Pats end up with 10 choices. If you draft based on where you think the team needs the most help by position, how much of an emphasis do you place on the team's need at that position based on a percentage? The example below assumes an equal need at all positions for illustration purposes. Adding all percentages must total 100%. How would you change the percentages below based on your knowledge of team needs and how you would like to see the mix in the coming draft?:

    Defense
    DL = 10%
    ILB = 10%
    OLB = 10%
    SS/FS = 10%
    CB = 10%

    Offense
    OL = 10%
    TE = 10%
    WR = 10%
    RB/FB = 10%
    QB = 10%

    Total for all positions must = 100%

    If I had to draft this year, I'd go:

    ILB: 35%
    OLB: 10%
    SS/FS: 25%
    CB: 15%
    OL: 10%
    TE: 5%

    If I could trade some picks to next year (w/ bonus), I would do that, as well.

    Obviously some things could continue to change in FA... and you have to go w/ BPA (if a true #1 rated DL falls to 24, how could you not take him?)... but you're basing this on need, I'd guess.

    Agree except for one minor tweak. I wouldn't mind seeing a de in round 3 or 4. I'd like to end the Marquise Hill experiment. And, get someone who can play. Our DL was gassed in Indy, lack of depth hurt us.

    Trade both firsts for 08 firsts, giving us three 08 firsts.

    Pick up a couple of 3rd rounds as comp for trading a year and utilize the value on saftey and maybe a RB in the third.

    Then in 08 have the option of paying a franchise tag value for Polamalu, Tillman should they be franchised.

    I'm of the thinking we do not need either 1sts this year as its a bad value draft for 1sts.

    "Trade both firsts for 08 firsts, giving us three 08 firsts."

    You know; that may not be a bad idea...think about it.
    With the additions this year in FA and our later round picks it could be a idea.
    Image us winning the SB this year and staring 3 picks next year...WOW

    Defense
    DL = 0%
    ILB = 30%
    OLB = 10%
    SS/FS = 30%
    CB = 20%

    Offense
    OL = 10%
    TE = 0%
    WR = 0%
    RB/FB = 0%
    QB = 0%

    We have to think about what we will be doing next year at FS (Wilson is a FA) and SS (Rodney retiring?). We also have to think about ILB (Brushci retiring next year). It would be nice to have everything set up for next year.

    round 1

    David Harris ILB
    Paul Posluzny ILB/OLB

    round 3
    one of Picitelli/Weddel/Wendling SS

    round 4a
    Zak DeOssie ILB/OLB

    round4b
    Paul Soliai NT

    round 6a
    Danny Sepulveda P

    round 6b
    Rowe QB

    round 7
    Brian Smith DE/OLB conversion

    In one of the few years where there are actually a few Patriots sized ILBs, Bill stocks up. He has solved the other problems, now he has the luxury to address LBs and plan the transition.

    Danny Sepulveda is one of those rare Ray Guy, Todd Sauerbrun, Richard Camarillo type gigantic-leg, punters. He wil play for 20 years and go to the pro bowl half of them...

    He will be as dominate at his position as Laron Landry or Calvin Johnson will be at theirs.

    Only if the Pats trade up to the top 15... Besides they don't need OLBs

    Here's my $.02 worth:

    Defense
    DL = 10%
    ILB = 20%
    OLB = 20%
    SS/FS = 20%
    CB = 20%

    Offense
    OL = 0%
    TE = 0%
    WR = 0%
    RB/FB = 10%
    QB = 0%

    So the breakdown would go like this: considering who is on the board during the first 2 picks in the 1st round, go for a hard-hitting safety and an impact ILB. If the impact ILB is not there, go for best player available among CB, SS/FS, or OLB in the form of an athletic DE. In later rounds 3-6, pick up CB, SS/FS, RB, OLB, ILB, and a DL to compete with Hill and Smith.

    In later picks of rounds 6 and 7, go for the best athlete available.

    Neat to think about. But then I keep thinking about Dallas Clark being chased from behing by Alexander and Hawkins. Don't think we can make it without a little depth this year

    How about a long snapping punter? He'd have to a bit rapid but it would free up a roster spot.
