[QUOTE]In Response to Re: 2011 Patriots Draft Options ***UPDATED 2/19 w/ PRE-COMBINE MOCK*** : You're not talking about 260 pound ends here. Both Jordan and Watt are a bisquit shy of the magic 300.

I preffer for them to add good weight than biscuit weight. Like I said Jordan is said to be very strong, so him being 287 might not be a big deal. Watt is also in that category, now adding weight 13 and 10 lbs might now sound like much but Watt already looks very built, Jordan as well. Some guys might not carry those extra lbs around and get the same quickness.
I'm for either of those guys but both are not what has been a preference of BB as a 34 DE.
I think both 1st year would gain playing time as season goes on. I'll even go this far, if Jordan and Watt are there at 16 (I know I get crazy sometimes) I offer the Jags the 28 and 60th or 74 and take Jordan and Watt at 16 and 17. Point system, 16 = 1,000 the 28th is 660 and 60 300 that's 960 so Pats might have to throw in a 6th rnd to close the deal.
Now how much would fans scream if you got two of the top 4 DEs in the draft? At 33 get Reed, Sheard or Houston say it cost the 60th get OL help in the 3rd and 4th in the 5th and 6th get a RB and a development type WR or another OL
So for all those DE freaks
16 (28 and 60 to Jags) Watt DE
17 Jordan DE/Elephant LB
33 Sheard OLB
74 Carpenter OT/OG
92 Moffitt OG/C
4th Rnd Housler TE/WR
5th Tim Barnes C/OG
6th Justin Rogers CB
Jags are rummored to be in the hunt for a QB which makes no sense to take one at 16 for them but at 28 they would have their pick of Luck, Dalton, Ponder, Mallet. With the 60th they could go after Ballard, Bailey, maybe Acho for their 43 DE type need.
