Julian Edelman doesn't tend to get the credit and respect he deserves around the league, but one former player took notice in a recent ESPN segment, putting him ahead of some notable names which created some controversy.

    How do you feel about running here a consensus thread to have the general board idea of selected prospects at each position? If you think it makes sense I can try to run it. We'd need everybody's help here notifying me of their assessments and changes of opinion in case I miss it in other threads. I wouldn't go by names bc I don't think that's important + we know who we are. I'll include those “grades“ that come with some conviction and substance and are made with regards to the Patriots - “Pat Type“ more or less.

    To simplify it and not make it too “expert“ Id keep +, -, % (mixed)
    Everyone can correct me if I misread something or check with me what certain grades stand for..
    If you think posters names SHOULD be incl. .. probably I can try..
    If you have ideas how to make this more useful / transparent etc. let me know
    And of course if you think some prospect name should be added please notify me as well
    (usually i add those at least two posters mentioned, discussed)

    Might be a bit premature mid-season but “pro-rates“ the work..;)

    So this is a quick sample of how it would look. Let's start w QBs I guess.;)

    1. Garoppolo (;) but it would be nice to find one BB&co would be as happy with)
    ____

    @QB
    (*underclassmen)

    Baker Mayfield (6'0, 220) ... %, +, -, +, +
    Mason Rudolph (6'4, 235) ... +, %, -, +
    *Sam Darnold (6'3, 225) ...... -, %,
    *Josh Rosen (6'3, 201) ......... +,
    *Josh Allen (6'5, 230) ........... -,
    *Ryan Finley (6'3, 205) ........ +, +
    Riley Ferguson (6'2, 190) ..... +, +
    Luke Falk (6'3, 225) ............. %, -, +
    Jarret Stidham (6'2, 214) ..... +
    Will Grier (6'2, 204)
    Chase Litton (6'6, 225)

    Mike White (6'3, 215) ........... +
    Kyle Lauletta (6'2, 215)

    ____
    Average hight of QBs drafted by BB: 6'35, 228. Smallest was Garoppolo. This would suggest concentrating on 6'2 guys or taller. Smaller guys have issues with short passing over DL as this season proves again)

    (9 QBs BB drafted + UDFA Hoyer)

    Mason Rudolph I'm a fan of. Not sold on any of the Qbs though despite the hype.

    Interesting -- like a crowd-sourced grading system for Patriots prospect? I don't think we've ever codified the draft efforts like that before. I'm in.

    Great idea. Our own forum board would be cool around March-April after compiling the consensus sentiment data. Could vote in a google doc or something.

    CBS Sports has him number one overall now. Interesting Bedlam Game with week with a sub-plot of Rudolph vs Mayfield.

    Hurst from sc looks like a future patriot tight end.

    If he runs a 4.6 forty, we need to have him on the radar.

    GBN has a Top 100 out.

    How bout a slight trade up for Vea. Give up a 4th.

    GBN Top 100 - Great Blue North Draft Report

    1. Vita Vea - DT - Washington
    2. Harold Landry - Edge - BC
    2. Mike Gesicki - TE - PSU
    3. Rashaan Evans - LB - Alabama

    I would take this mock in a heartbeat. All 4 players could contribute from day 1.

    Evans already knows most of our defense and would be excellent as a Hightower backup.

    I've been on a DT/RUSH double dip for weeks.

    Also regarding the QB position, there's no lock we find Brady's successor this year.

    It's not something that "just" happens bc Brady is closer to retirement and we traded Jimmy.

    The main focus should be on finding the right guy. Not any guy. And there's no guarantee hes in this class.
