Mike’s Final Patriots Mock Draft

Tuesday, April 24th, 2012

Is Vinny Curry on the Patriots Radar?

NEPD Editor: Mike Loyko

The Draft will finally get underway in 48 hours. The Patriots have been painfully tough to project in the past, but I take my best shot and try to predict who will have their name called by the Patriots this week.


NEPD Mailbag: Too Long For Twitter

Could this undersized linebacker fit in the Patriots hybrid defense?

Where’s the best value for a safety? Could the Patriots change their prototype for a linebacker? What would it take to make a perfect mock draft?

Those are some of the questions I’ll be answering in my weekly “Too Long For Twitter” Friday mailbag where I take questions from Twitter that warrant, deserve or need answers longer than 140 characters

If you have a question about anything, tweet it to me @DougKyedNEPD, and I’ll try to include it in the column on Friday. If you aren’t on Twitter, feel free to throw in a question in the comments section.

Could Hosley fit the athletic protoype the Patriots look for in a cornerback?

Last month, I broke down all 21 defensive backs that the Patriots have drafted in my Drafting Defensive Backs: A Patriots Case Study post. The results were a little surprising: Bill Belichick has some Al Davis in him.

Now that the combine is over, we have a better idea of which defensive backs in this draft class may fit those standards, which seem to rely strongly on workout numbers.

In today’s post I’ll break down those players to see who may be the best fit in New England, and who the Pats might not even bother looking at.

Janoris Jenkins NFL Draft

Could Janoris Jenkins fall to the Patriots? And if so, would Belichick be willing to take a risk in the first round?

NEPD Editor: Doug Kyed

Bill Belichick is a hard man to predict, and that especially rears itself in April during the NFL Draft. With all the prospects and all the potential trades, there could be millions of possibilities for the Patriots this year. Here’s the one that I envision.

After researching what the Patriots might look for when drafting for the secondary yesterday, I took a look at all of the defensive backs down at the Senior Bowl this year to see who the Patriots might have been most interested in.

There is no perfect player here, but there are certainly some players that fit the Patriots mold.
