Saturday, February 11th, 2012

NEPD Editor: Mike Loyko

Here is my initial pre-combine Big Board. This board is in no way final and will fluctuate a lot prior to the draft. What it is, is a prelimanary look at how I value a player.

This list will change with injury news, combine workouts and more film study.

2010 Patriots Big Board

Monday, January 11th, 2010

Check out or 2011 NFL Draft Big Board.

The 2010 Patriots Big Board ranks the NFL Draft prospects that seem to fit the Patriots system, team needs, and have a realistic chance of being available at pick #22 or within reasonable trading distance.

Updated: 4/11/10

1. Rolando McClain, LB, Alabama (Previous: 1)
3-Down backer that has the football IQ that Belichick desires. Great frame and athleticism compliment his amazing instincts. As true as a can’t miss prospect as you will see.

2. Brandon Graham, DE/OLB, Michigan (Previous: 2)
Graham hates to lose and works every down to make sure that his team is in a position to win. Great motor compliments his quick first step and impressive balance. Could play 3-4 OLB or a situational DE in the 4-3.

3. Jason Pierre-Paul, DE/OLB, USF (Previous: 3)
Very raw hybrid prospect that has athleticism to spare. Will continue to improve by honing his technique and expanding his rush-move repertoire.

4. Jared Odrick, DL, Penn State (Previous: 4)
Odrick is a talented one-gap penetrator that could be coached up to play the 5-technique. Very quick first step and good functional strength.

5. Sergio Kindle, OLB, Texas (Previous: Unranked)
Watch his junior tape, when Brian Orakpo was still around, and you wonder why he isn’t a top 10 pick. Watch his senior tape, sans Orakpo, and you wonder how he is a 1st rounder. Loads of talent.

6. Joe Haden, CB, Florida (Previous: 6)
Haden is an incredibly talented corner that will not make it to #22. His physical play, great instincts, solid coverage and ball skills would make it worth it to trade up for him, no matter if he runs a 4.4 or 4.5 forty.

7. Derrick Morgan, DE, Georgia Tech (Previous: 7)
We have concerns about Morgan ever being able to play 3-4 OLB, but his pass-rush skills are hard to ignore. Playing as a situational 4-3 DE or pure 3-4 rush end for a year would allow Morgan time to develop into a three-down 3-4 OLB.

8. Maurkice Pouncey, OL, Florida (Previous: 8)
Pouncey is a blocker that would give the Patriots lots of versatility in the interior line.  Pouncey could play either guard spot and center, which is a premium position in a 3-4 division.

9. Jerry Hughes, OLB, TCU (Previous: Unranked)
Conversion prospect whose biggest issue is his lack of ideal size, being a couple of inches shorter (6-1) than the Patriots like. Violent tackler with a good first step in his pass-rush.

10. Carlos Dunlap, DE/OLB, Florida (Previous: 5)
Even with his off-field issues, Dunlap has a rare breed of athleticism, speed, and versatility. Dunlap compares well to Mario Williams and Julius Peppers in every area but motor and motivation. Did not interview well at the NFL Combine. It wouldn’t surprise me to have Dunlap in the top 3 players on the Patriots board, or to be off it completely.

Just Missed:
Mike Iupati, OG, Idaho
