I've tried to make this as realistic as possible in terms of player availability. I've also included alternate selections to substitute if a player is not available...or if a higher-rated player unexpectedly IS still there (e.g. Maurice Stovall vs. Mike Hass). I await your brilliant rebuttals! Round 1 I start off with the assumption that none of these players last to #21: Michael Huff, S Chad Greenway, LB LenDale White, RB Manny Lawson, DE/OLB Then: Trade down...let's say #21 and a 4th-rounder for Chicago's #26 and their 3rd (#90). #26 Richard Marshall, CB, Fresno State Hard-hitting playmaker from a program the Pats know well; by April, I suspect this will not seem like a reach. (Alternates: Ko Simpson) #53 Stanley McClover, DE/OLB, Auburn 6'3" 260, fast and agile with a great first step; very active, hard hitter. (Alternates: Bobby Carpenter, Darryl Tapp) #77 Joe Toledo, OT, Washington Converted tight end, 6'6" 310, quick, agile, raw. I'm not looking for OL help higher than round 3 because I think this class of tackles is deep but with few real stars. (Alternates: Daryn Colledge, Andrew Whitworth) #85 Mike Hass, WR, Oregon St Terrific route runner, great hands, solid blocker, smart, productive player. (Alternates: Maurice Stovall, Greg Lee) #90 Mike Bell, RB, Arizona Very solid all-around power back, excellent hands, strong blocker. What could throw this off: If the Patriots sign a significant FA defensive back before the draft, I think they aim hard for Greenway or Lawson in round 1.
