Patriots Mock Draft 2009

With the Patriots having six of the top 100 picks at their disposal this coming weekend, the 2009 NFL Draft will be looked at five years from now by Patriot fans and NFL experts as one of two things. It will be either known as the bountiful harvest that allowed the Patriots to continue their high level of football into the second decade of the 21st century, or it will be known as a monstrous flop.

Here is who we feel would kickstart a rejuvenated Patriots dynasty:

#23 – Robert Ayers, DE/LB, Tennessee
In order to give new additions Leigh Bodden and Shawn Springs a chance, the Patriots need to get to the Quarterback — exactly what Ayers is programmed to do.

#34 – Max Unger, OL, California
Unger can play every position on the line, which allows the Patriots to plug him in if Mankins, Neal, or Kaczur isn’t around in 2010. Unger could also take over Kaczur’s spot at RT.

#47 – Patrick Chung, S, Oregon
Chung is built like Rodney Harrison and can play physical near the point of attack. His coverage skills need some polishing, but playing behind Sanders and Meriweather for a year will give him time to develop.

#58 – Pat White, QB/WR, West Viginia
Belichick will find a myriad of ways to use this athletic guy that just knows how to win football games.

#89 – Jason Williams, LB, Western Illinois
We expect this pick to be used to move up in the 1st or 2nd round or moved into 2010, but if Williams is the pick, he is a highly athletic prospect that could play outside.

#97 – Shonn Greene, RB, Iowa
While he struggled with grades at times, Greene is a strong inside runner that responds to the Belichick coaching tree. (Kirk Ferentz)

#124 – Joe Burnett, CB, Central Florida
Would be amazing on the Patriot special-teams units and has the UCF pedigree to be able to perform in our 3-4 defense.

#170 – Bear Pascoe, TE, Fresno State
Pascoe is a bulldozer TE in the mold of Kyle Brady who can really act as a 3rd tackle.

#199 – Ian Johnson, RB, Boise St.
Patriot-style player that could be used a backup running back and special teams ace.

#207 – Thomas Morstead, P, SMU
Why not?

#234 – Julius Williams, OLB, UConn
The Patriots have shown interest in Williams and Belichick loves to try out OLB’s.
