    Where are the corner backs. You don’t really think we’re not going to draft a corner back, do you?

  2. DWE2012 says:

    Uhm’: A concuscion prone OLB…………..A FRLIPPIN RUNNING BACK????

    If the Pat’s real draft started or went like this……..I’d officially call for BB head on a platter & beg TB12 to “Transfer” to either the San Fran 49’rs or the Tampa BAy Buc’s.

    Holy Crud!

    • kobeissi says:

      i have to agree. i mean a running back in the first round, andre branch falling as a second round pick. what kind of analysis is this

  3. George R says:

    Some of U R very funny! McClellin is a perfect fit in the Patriot 3-4….Height,(6’5″, 260) Weight and speed 4.6 40….3 year starter. Relentless motor. Can get after it from outside, inside and can definitely set the edge! Don’t need another RB in the draft, unless he’s a can’t miss player. I would be happy with McClellin, Branch and Curry. Finally some pass rush! I really like Tennard Jackson in the Eugene Wilson mode. Big CB that would convert to FS. (McCourty can back up at FS too) Trade down and p/u a WR 5th, 6th round. It’s the D………man

  4. Joe Blake says:

    Did u go to Boise State…no way we draft these players.

  5. e. saint says:

    I disagree with the doug martin pick. We drafted steven ridley and shane vereen last year. Cordy Glenn, Vinny Curry, or Whitner Mercilus would benefit the team more. Still too early for Harrison Smith though

  6. John M says:

    I think the strategy of New England’s draft is going to depend on how BB, coaching staff, and scouts rank the defensive linemen. I could definitely see the pats moving up 4 or 5 spots to get the guy they want which would be a great sign to us. I also notice that if they wait until the 48th pick, all the top DL’s are gone by then. I think it would be hard to trade the 48th pick for a late 1st round pick next year .

    • DWE2012 says:

      Dude, BB alway’s goes against team scout and possition coaches ALL THE TIME. Your dependance upon the collective decision makes no legitamate scence.

      Brandon Merriweither,
      Taylor Price,
      Chad Jackson,
      Brandon Tate……..just too name a few.

  7. BILL says:

    This is really a great site and lots of fun. WE’ve got till Thursday to play this game, and then months to 2nd guess. here’s my weigh-in

    A RB at 31 is a real luxury pick, and I’m not sure I’d pick him over Cordy Glenn if you want to go offense. Glenn could make Ridley/Vereen both better. But I’d go Defense first 4 picks

    Harrison Smith is there @ 48 and you pass him by, with FS maybe your strongest need, only to take Iloka @62 over Trumaine Johnson

    Given the choices available at each position my picks would be
    27 Shea McClellin OLB
    31 Chandler Jones DE
    48 Harrison Smith FS
    62 Brandon Thompson NT
    93 Robert Turbin RB

    • John M says:

      I was thinking the same thing. If Harrison Smith is there at number 48, you take him. He’ll probably go earlier in the second round.

      • Jimmy says:

        i would agree bruh but we need a corner desperately. Unless you trust McCourty to get better? Or Ras-I-Dowling to actually play a full season? I dont think either of these will happen.
        Get a corner first than two pass rushers and a free safety and the defense is immediatley workable.

        • zach says:

          isnt it tought to get on dawling so soon. He pplayed for the little games he played. I mean u cant say hes injury prone after one season thats not a fair assessment. Bruh

  8. JMC says:

    I think the guy picking for the Patriots was a Boise fan-

  9. AM says:

    Bucking the trend, I think this is a very good draft. The one flaw, I would say, is drafting Doug Martin over Kendall Reyes. If going RB, though, I prefer David Wilson.

  10. MJP says:

    How about taking Janoris Jenkins at 27 (clearly the best talent available) and either jumping on an OLB at 31 or simply trade back knowing that you can possibly get McClellin, Branch, Lewis or Curry in Round-2.

    I’ll keep reminding people of Malik Jackson as a 5-tech DE until draft day, I’m surprised the scouts here haven’t been all over his game (and for some reason Chandler Jones is talked about non-stop…different positions, I know, but in terms of upside and talent, that’s irony right there.)

  11. Justin says:

    Ok my mistake I completely missed out on Devon Still at the 25th but I still do not think they take Doug Martin. Trade out or take Whitney Mercilus.

  12. Justin says:

    there is a difference between the actual game and the combine and he checks out fine to me. I have been watching him since high school into college so I can get a good idea on how he will actually translate in the NFL. If not Sanu then Marvin McNutt and Trumaine Johnson maybe even Juron Criner would be in consideration. Im really high on Greg Childs and think he could be a stud in this league. At 93 if Janoris Jenkins is still available i think the Patriots jump on him because someone in the next rounds will jump on him. He is the 2nd best corner in the draft and some analysts amd scouts have him as the top rated corner in the draft. Another player to look at is Jake Bequette from Arkansas (who reminds me of Jared Allen) and also George Iloka could merit some consideration. This is just what I think but props on taking your time out to create this draft.

  13. Justin says:

    Props to everybody who put together this mock draft with that said i disagree with the Pats 31st, 62nd, and 93rd picks. At 31 I am sure the Pats would take someone like Devon Still its kind of amazing to not even see him in the mock itself. Still is easily a 1st-2nd round grade player and push aside all the motivation and motor issues and Still is easily one of the top 3 defensive lineman prospects in this years draft. The kid is 6’5, 310 pounds and all the issues that he has I am sure BB will be able to bring the best out in him plus he wont be put into a lousy situation on a lousy team. It might be in their best interest to even trade out because Still will most likely be available within the first 10 picks of the 2nd round. Maybe trade to a QB needy team. At 62nd I think Iloka would be a bit of a reach he is a mid 3rd-4th round prospect. At 62 if Mohamed Sanu is still on the board which he is why would the Pats not take him? He is easily a late 1st-mid 2nd rounder. He will be a solid starter. Everyone criticizes him because of his poor 40 and his lack of seperation but

  14. MJP says:

    The Pats 31st overall is a joke.

    • Prefectly Smart says:

      In this mock, Devon Still was selected by the Broncos with their 25th pick. So, he wasn’t available to the Pats

    • qwerty says:

      also the 3 time concussion guy shea as 27th pick

      must be a ny jet fan playing a joke

  15. Mike Loyko says:

    Yep! It started out a little slow but once we got goin it work out well.. stay tuned.. I will have plenty of mor comign out right up to and thru the draft and look for some of our stuff on CSNNE.com on draft day
