    I haven't watched much of the wide receivers because I don't think they're in the market for one, but Miller is beloved of the amateur draft scout community.

    I think they love a fair number of guys each year and you only get so many picks and other teams pick guys too. Sometimes they just love someone a little more than the next guy, so some other team gets him. Doesn't mean they didn't like the player, just means they liked someone else more and you can't get em all.

    That second article is written by a fan, not an NFL reporter, analyst, or anyone with any cred.

    LJ will be a HoF player with the right team. The rain dead ignore 3 private meetings with the layer and fantasize that they spent the time scouting a potential rival too funny.

    The closer we get to the draft, the more I want the Pats to draft LJ...for Josh McDaniels to actually have a private workout, says A LOT...I really hope we grab this guy, no disrespect to TB12

    It's not disrespect. We need to draft the QB (hopefully) of the future. Whether it's LJ or someone else, Brady will be retired by the time their rookie contract expires.

    It will be historic to watch if LJ becomes a Patriot and takes Brady's job away before he's ready to retire...what then Bob?

    Roto:
    An offensive coordinator told NFL Network he doesn't expect Lamar Jackson to make it as a quarterback.

    "Will not be able to play quarterback in this league, mark my words," the coordinator said. "When he throws, he hopes." A quarterbacks coach added that Jackson struggled to "verbalize" his offensive scheme at Louisville. Jackson's accuracy and football IQ have been questioned throughout the pre-draft process, but he's not expected to fall out of the first round

    It be crazy if Buff drafts Jackson then BB watches Rosen fall within range or take 2 defensive stalwarts and rushes to the podium to call Randolphs name

    He's intriguing, but I just don't want a damn 1st round pick spent on a QB (let alone 2 packaged to trade up) especially when the team needs some major talent infusion on both sides of the ball. There's holes/aging players/question marks at LT, TE, WR, RB, LB, Safety (Chung and McCourty turn 31 soon).

    QBs in the 1st round are the biggest gamble you can possibly take. Now factor in a guy like this with a low completion %, low football intellect, primarily familiar with running, and needs developing as a passer. No thanks.

    Ride it out with Brady and go for #6. Build a young, strong, reliable defense that'll be there for Brady, who deserves it, and his future successor when the time comes.

    You have an interesting thought in there.

    Given 2 choices which would you prefer as a patsfan?

    1) spend picks on non qbs and focus on Brady’s final 3 or so years trying to win SBs.
    Figure out qb later.

    2) draft a qb who could be the future starter for a number of yrars but win no more SBs under Brady.

    Our Pats won't get a shot at Josh Allen. He's the only prospect I'd consider Patriots material as the team's coaching staff is currently constructed.He QB'ed a team with little talent and thyat shows in his stats, which I could care less about. Can he make all the throws and is he ready to throw while back pedaling into a pocket? He's the only QB in the top of this draft that's NFL "ready" IMO.

    Lauletta would seem to be the obvious next best choice. I wouldn't want anything to do with Rudolph.

    I FEEL that BB will move OUT of the first round and make hay in the 2nd and third, banking a first rounder into next years draft.

    I really don’t want the Pats to use EXTRA picks to go up and get LJ. If he’s there are 23 and you want him, grab him.

    This team has a lot of holes, and though they need a Brady protege, one could be found in round 2 (or 3). Really need to grab some defensive studs early (like in 2012). Guys like Lauletta, Faulk, White, etc will be available and rounds 2 & 3.

    90% chance this is a smokescreen. I feel the Pats are trying to jack up the value on Jackson if he falls to 23. They are hoping to get a sweetheart deal for this pick. If they don't get a good deal, they could always just select Jackson and keep him for themselves, if he lasts that long.
