    If you think Jackson is a bad prospect, fine, no problem. I think most of these types haven't watched him but w/e.

    If you think hes a WR you def have no idea what you're talking about and shouldn't be given advice. Or you're a racist. Don't have to be a full blown sheet wearing loser but you gots some racist in ya.

    I'd love to see Michel here. Perfect back for our offense. We'll know more about position needs after free agency, however. If we bring everyone back then there's no real need for a running back in the draft.

    Even though my dream draft is out of reach now on defense (still good options available, of course), I hold out hope that we could come away with some of my guys on offense. I've been on board the Tate and Michel train all season. No reason to get off now. Bring 'em home, Bill.

    Devron Davis. Very good size at 511/6- 210. Very good job at r/r and diagnosing plays. When he does hes does a great job of finding the ball. Whether that's an intermediate route while in zone or finding the ball deep. ++ Tracking ability & physical at the catch point. Will deliver a thump no problem. Blitz. I think he could play some S as well.

    Has to improve his footwork at the los. Doesn't have blazing recovery speed

    More Davis







    Outside tech. Great job at looking at the WR eyes, back at QB and then makes a play.

    don''t know if BB goes QB this high but if he is going with the SF 2 he might go rd 1 for the 5th year option.

    Congrats! It should be ok to post the link here -- @midwestpatsfan does it all the time for his reports. NEPatriotsDraft.com - 2015 NFL Draft

    Thanks for the report. Mata'afa does sound intriguing as someone who could play outside and the kick inside on 3rd downs. If he were 3 inches taller and 10 pound heavier it wouldn't be to dissimilar from Chandler Jones. However, according to this site (Washington State football: NFL draft projections on Coug DL Hercules Mata'afa all over the map) there are concerns that his height/weight is already overstated, that's he 6'1" and 240 which would certainly impact things.

    Although as you also alluded to, his size is close to Tedy Bruschi, and it would be really interesting to see if BB thinks he can be truly multiple and be an inside linebacker type - and you've noted that he's already done some of that a few times in college which definitely helps.

    Sounds interesting as a long-term developmental project, and someone who sounds like he'd be completely reliable on special teams in year 1 (like Bruschi).
