Here are the positions I'd like to see the Pats fill in the draft. Since
know nothing about college football, I'm going to pretend that all
are equally stocked and that a good player at the given position will be
available when the Pats pick.
1A. OT -- A bit unconventional, but the first round is the only place
you can get an impact tackle. The hope would be that they get a McNeil
of player here for LT and move Light to RT, with Kaczur and O'Callaghan
backing up the two positions. Or they might be able to get a good deal
picking up a pure RT, a position that's undervalued compared to LT in
today's NFL. I believe that the offensive line is one of their biggest
trouble spots despite having good names (perhaps a bit overrated?) at 4
the 5 spots. Maroney and Faulk need holes to be effective.
1B. SS -- They need the Rodney replacement. And with Rodney still on the
roster, it'd be the perfect time to groom one. Let Wilson start at FS
Rodney at SS. If the rookie is brilliant right out of the gate, then
can split time at CB and the rookie plays safety.
I read that BB and Pioli both attended Reggie Nelsons pro-day, but he's
projected by most to go before 24. Do you think he would be worth trading
Honestly, I think both BB and Pioli probably have hard-ons for Nelson. He's
exactly what they want. They've got 24 and 28; if he still there as 20
approaches, I would not be surprised to see them try to move up.
