    Definitely agree with this one —-> Most under the radar player: Alameda Ta’amu

  4. Mark says:

    The most unhappy player drafted tonight: Who ever the Jets draft in round 1 – (how would you want Rex for your coach, this his last year in NJ. -all that hot air yet the balloon don’t rise)

  5. Mark says:

    The number of women who come forward to claim thier child is Janoris Jenkins after he signs his contract: 5

  6. Mark says:

    The number of times Tom asks Gisselle to pass the popcorn: 7 (she keeps hogging it)

  7. Mark says:

    The Number of times MJP yells at his TV for BB to friggin draft Malick Jackson: 117 (MJP – you are going to have to keep track for us…we’ll have to trust your count…)

  8. Mark says:

    The Number of Bong hits Janoris Jenkins does tonight before he is drafted: 21 (I figure he is going to average one every 2 picks so this has him drafted at 42)

  9. Mark says:

    The number of times Goddell gets booed tonight: 32

  10. Mark says:

    Cases of Sam Adams cooling on ice at NEPatriotsdraft.com headquarters tonight: 12 (and 4 large bottles of Yaeger Miester).

  11. Ratzalot says:

    David DeCastro falls to the early-mid 20′s and the Patriots trade up to snag him.

  12. Lipper says:

    I’d prefer that Bill trades up & selects Richardson,Barron,Brockers or Coples! If not BB needs to stay put & select best player available in McClellin, then Smith! For us as diehard Pats fans, I hate to say it, but if we had Clay Matthews or Brooks Reed all of whom Bill passed on, we would have won 1 of the 2 Super Bowls against the Gmen! We are just a few and I mean few 2 or 3 playmakers away from becomming a Super Bowl Champion again! In Bill we TRUST, but please move up or stay put & draft the best player available, and not so much focus on acquiring picks or mortaging our teams future! Now Bill Please

  13. John Courtney says:

    Picks I would like Pats to pick if available.
    #27 Dont’a Hightower
    #31 Michael Brocker
    #48 Janoris Jenkins
    #63 George Iloka

  14. Truth Speaker says:

    Potential future BenJarvus Green-Ellis/Arian Foster—There’s alot of talent separating Lawfirm & Foster. Just stating the obvious, of course.
