2017 NFL Draft Round 1 Recap and Reaction

April 28th, 2017

NEPD Staff Writer: Mike Gerken

While the Patriots did not have a pick during the first round of the draft last night, it was still highly entertaining to watch. We saw a lot of surprise picks and some players unexpectedly fall. With plenty of talented players still waiting to hear their names picked, there should be some good drama tonight as well. I won’t speak about every pick, but will highlight some of the more intriguing picks, both good and bad.

Mike Gerken’s 7 Round Patriots Only Mock

April 27th, 2017

NEPD Staff Writer: Mike Gerken

We are now just a few hours away until the NFL draft starts for most teams, but for us Patriots fans, the wait will be about 24 hours longer unless something crazy happens. My first round mock has been published, now its time to move onto the Patriots picks. It is hard enough to figure out who is going at number 2 this year, let alone number 72, so take this with a grain of salt. Enjoy!!!

Here is my final mock of the year:

Mike Loyko’s 2017 NFL Mock Draft (Final)

April 26th, 2017

NEPD Editor: Mike Loyko
The 2017 NFL Draft has been extremely difficult to project over the course of the spring. Generally as we inch closer to draft night we begin to gain some clarity, however the opposite is true this year. There is no clarity in sight, in fact things got even more murky this afternoon with some late draft developments. The uncertainty surrounding the Quarterback position, teams targeting QBs early, medical red flags,  and the seemingly even distribution of draft talent from pick #2-32 has made this year exceptionally difficult to predict. While it should make for an fun and exciting draft night, it makes completing mocks like this nightmarish.

The 2017 All Binkie Team

April 25th, 2017

Hunt would be definitely be on the Mount Rushmore of Binkies for me.

NEPD Staff Writer: Mike Gerken

For some of you who are unfamiliar with the word “Binkie,” it is a term used for those players that you fall in love with during the scouting process. There is just something about them that gets you excited every time you watch them. These players don’t necessarily have to be first round picks, in fact, for me, most are not. For me, they are players I typically am much higher on than most other draft prognosticators. They represent great value in my opinion or seem to be a perfect fit in the Patriots system. So today, I thought it would be fun to pick one guy at each position and create the all “binkie” team.
