Patriots Draft Mockumentary: 3/23/10

Each Tuesday, we’ll be looking at five NFL Mock Drafts, including our own. We’ll decide who wins, who fails, and who falls in between. Make sure you let us know what you think.

Today we’ll be looking at Walter Football, Draft Daddy, Draft King, Draft Countdown, and our very own 2010 NFL Mock Draft.

1st Round
Walter: Jared Odrick
Daddy: Jared Odrick
King: Brandon Graham
Countdown: Jared Odrick
NE Patriots Draft: Jared Odrick

Analysis: Jared Odrick, DL from Penn State, is certainly the chalk pick for the Patriots at this point. A penetrating defender with the ability to play the 5-tech and size to boot will be hard for Belichick to pass up.

2nd Round
Walter: Roger Saffold, Tim Tebow, Aaron Hernandez
Daddy: No selections
King: No selections
Countdown: Jermaine Gresham, Ricky Sapp, Mardy Gilyard
NE Patriots Draft: Aaron Hernandez, Demaryius Thomas, Ricky Sapp

Analysis: Draft Countdown and I certainly agree that TE/WR/OLB are positions that could use an upgrade. Gresham and Gilyard versus Thomas and Hernandez would be a great debate — the latter having a higher ceiling, with the former having a higher floor. While we like the versatility that Saffold would bring to the OL, we’re not in the Tebow camp quite yet.

    If we stay at 22 it will be dez bryant, Sergio Kindle, Jerry Hughes, Odrick, or Pouncey. Final pick is Kindle!!

    I can’t take anyone or any site ever thinking the Pats would take Tebow with a top 53 pick. Those 4 players should be the best available…potential starters at positions of need. Tebow is a man without a position, and we have Brady…no need for wildcat. I hope he’s off the board completely! Maybe 5th round, MAYBE!

    Many of last years mock drafts had New England Picking Darius Butler at 23 of the first round and actually drafted him with the 9th pick of the second round. The moral of this story is trading back can achieve the same goal if a player if over valued. The 2009 NFL draft will go down as one for the books, two picks this year in the second round were a direct result of great drafting by the Pat’s/

    Certainly Odrick would appear to be a real quality “need” pick for us @ #1. This is said to be a deep draft, one of the best in the last 10 years. Other than Odrick, I’d like to see us draft a pass-rushing OLB, a TE, WR and CB or Oline in the fisrt 2 rounds. There could be several that will “fill the Bill”, we just have to make the correct selections for our system. If we can fill these positions with “high character” guys, even better. I know that trades are always a possiblity. I just hope that we see enough talent on the board good enough to make quality selections vs. having to trade down. If we see real value in the 2nd or 3rd round, I wouldn’t mind us considering trading our own #1 in 2011 to stock up this year. Afterall, having 2 – #1 picks in 2011 may prove to be a bit expensive, especially if Oakland’s pick ends up being in the top 10.

    Jermaine Gresham won’t be there at 22 I wish he would be but I doubt it. Tim Tebo? no thanks. We don’t need a project, we need studs like Odrick, Sapp and Graham. One player that would be an excellent fit at wr is Jordan Stuckey from Texas. He is quicker than Williams and smarter. Let’s hope BB stays with these picks and does NOT trade down. He could have had Clay Matthews last year and “traded down+ again. You never know with him.
