    Welcome, one and all, to our annual exercise in communal humility and frustration! The rules are simple:

    The Patriots have 8 draft picks. Name 8 players you think they might choose. The most hits wins.

    That's it. If you want to approach this like a 7-round-mock, feel free. If you want to just name the 8 likeliest tight ends in order to get at least one pick right, well dagnabbit, that's fine too. Past experience has taught us that any positive score is an accomplishment, and a curly number is a triumph.

    A note from your scorekeeper: Please, please try not to change your entries too often! And watch your spelling (and use full names) to make sure you get full credit for your brilliant prognostications.

    And now, let the picks begin!

    Based on the positions they've looked at, general team needs, I'm willing to embarrass myself with my official contest picks. These assume the Pats stand pat, which is strike one already (and based on current CBS rankings)

    Allen Robinson, WR Penn State
    Will Sutton, DT Arizona State
    CJ Fiedorowicz, TE Iowa
    AJ McCarron, QB Alabama
    Christian Kirksey, LB Iowa
    Antone Exum, DB Virginia Tech
    Lorenzo Taliaferro, RB Coastal Carolina
    Brandon Thomas, OG Clemson

    I'm already up to nine and haven't even considered the first two rounds. If any one notices a new member called manxman2602, please pay no attention.

    Over the years I've hit on a couple. Solder in '11, Brace in '09, Crable in '08, Watson in '04, Brady in '00(that's a joke), Katz in '99, Edwards in '98, Mcginist '94 and Bledsoe '93.

    My strategy is is I just go with lots of names, a big wall and darts.

    Always thought you check the 40 time and found the 2-3 fastest?

    Craven! :p Just look 'em up. (Or better yet, take advantage of others' effort and cut and paste.)

    Smooth! But...no. :D

    Without too much thought, under the likely false assumption they stand pat at each current pick, and roughly based on CBS Sports rankings...

    TE C.J. Fiedorowicz
    OLB Christian Kirksey
    DT Anthony Johnson
