Patriots Draft Mockumentary: 3/23/10

Tuesday, March 23rd, 2010

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.


Patriots Draft Mockumentrary: 3/9/2010

Tuesday, March 9th, 2010

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.

This week we are looking at the mock drafts from Walter Football, Pats Draft, Great Blue North Report, Sideline Scouting and our very own NFL Mock Draft.

Walter Football: Jared Odrick, DE/DT, Penn State
Pats Draft: Brandon Graham, DE/OLB, Michigan
Great Blue North Report: Brandon Graham, DE/OLB, Michigan
Sideline Scouting: Derrick Morgan, DE, Georgia Tech
NE Patriots Draft: Jared Odrick, DE/DT, Penn State

Analysis:
All five mock drafts are in agreement that the Patriots need to upgrade the defensive end position. Morgan and Graham are more pure pass-rushers, while Odrick has a little more to give against the run.

While Morgan doesn’t seem to have the hips to play 3-4 OLB, nor the strength to play 3-4 DE, Graham and Odrick are both versatile enough to play multiple positions in the Patriots 3-4 defense.


Patriots Draft Mockumentrary: 3/2/2010

Tuesday, March 2nd, 2010

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’re looking at the 2010 NFL Mock Drafts from The Football Hub, Draft Season, Inside the Eagles, NFL Draft Dog, and our very own 2010 NFL Mock Draft.

1st Round – 22nd Overall
Football Hub – Sergio Kindle, DE/OLB, Texas
Draft Season – Jermaine Gresham, TE, Oklahoma
Inside The Eagles – Carlos Dunlap, DE/OLB, Florida
NFL Draft Dog – Jahvid Best, RB, California
NE Patriots Draft – Carlos Dunlap, DE/OLB, Florida

Three sites agree that the Patriots need to address the pass rush via the DE/OLB hybrid position. Dunlap and Kindle both have some warts, Dunlap having attitude issues on and off the field, while Kindle has some size/strength issues. Each though brings some dynamic talent to the table, with Dunlap possessing the ideal size that Coach Belichick looks for in a 3-4 rush OLB.

Gresham and Best also are intriguing selections for the Patriots. Gresham has all the receiving skills that he needs for the NFL, but his blocking isn’t up to par with the rest of his game. If injuries aren’t looked at, Jahvid Best is a top-10 talent. That said, his concussion problems, along with some pass-protection issues, will weigh heavily on teams minds.

At this point, I’d be happy with any of these players being the Patriots first selection, but would rather trade down and select Kindle or Gresham later in the 1st – I think they might still be there.
