If you look at any mock draft, you will typically see the Patriots taking a defensive lineman in the first two rounds.

There’s good reason, it’s a big position of need for the Patriots. The difficult part is predicting which players the Patriots may be looking at.

Players are set to arrive in Indianapolis in a week for one of my favorite events of the year, the 2012 NFL Scouting Combine.

The combine is great to establish what you may or may not already know. The 40 time is the most well known portion of the combine and I do see value in it. Granted, players aren’t running in pads and likely won’t have to run 40 yards in a straight line, but it does help to gauge comparisons between players.

Every year there is one workout warrior who wows scouts and usually winds up getting drafted way too high by the Oakland Raiders. There’s also usually a couple players who show up in less than stellar shape or aren’t as fast as teams and analysts had them pegged who can fall.

Today I’m looking at some of the players participating in the 2012 NFL Combine to see who has the most to gain/lose.

Here is our third version of what the Patriots might do come late April.
