In Response to Re: 2011 Patriots Draft Options ***UPDATED MOCK 1/15***
[QUOTE]Agreed Mb. Watt would be perfect and I feel like he has the frame to add 15 lbs of muscle once he gets NFL weight training. He was a TE two years ago so he hasn't come close to reaching his potential as a DE. He is already explosive and makes big plays, lots of TFL, lots of batted balls, forced fumbles, etc. If we miss out on him, I would be fine with Jordan or Heyward but rather see Heyward at 28. I know he had an off year but I think he played hurt. He was a beast in his bowl game and I think that's who he really is, a beast!

Faucet, I was critical of your JJ for his lackluster game ve Horned Frogs and all-American OT Marcus Cannon, but must say his body of work for Badgers is impressive. On reflecting on Pats shocking departure from the playoffs - and that we beat both teams competing in the Super Bowl - and considering that all four teams in the AFC and NFC Championship games had outstanding defenses, I think we all know the Pats achilles heal is a weak D. We badly need DLine and OLBs!
I am not confident Ty Warren, at 30 and coming off hip surgery, or Wright, or Ron Brace or Pryor are the answers. I also believe Cunningham and Ninkovich are average players. THe O is fine, but D needs a lot to contend for the Super!
#17 - JJ Watt (your boy), if gone Cameron Jordan
#28 - Jeremy Beal OLB Oklahoma, excellent size speed pass rush
#33 Mohammad Wilkerson - DT/DE Temple - great size 6'5" 310 lbs, quick as a cat! (if BB peddles this pick and I hope he does not, I want Wilkerson at #28 and we get OLB below)
#56 Brooks Reed - OLB Az - great senior bowl tough to block - see MB's reviews re this players high worth.
3rd Round from the Vikes
OG John Moffit of Wisc or John Boren Ohio State or Watkins of Baylor, in that order of preference
Pats 3rd - I love the Louisville Cardinals here!
Johnny Patrick CB - can go man-to-man or zone, fine speed and knack for the ball - my boy -or Balial Powell - RB makes big plays, excellent combo of size spped toughness - another MB boy!
Pats 4th - let's get a center here - Jake Kirkpatrick of TCU or Kevin Kowlaski of Toledo, both outstanding centers and abour 6'2 or 3 and 300 lbs
Pats 5 - WR Edmund Gates of Abilene Christian - great speed and hands from small school
In free agency for Pats players, we should franchise Logan M; keep Matt Light for 2 more seasons, sign BenJarvus, resign Safety Jarrod Page, resign Gerals Warren for DLine, and Kevin Faulk if healthy for 1 more year.
Other teams - look for RB Brian Leonard, ex-Rutgers star, now of Bungles to become a good Pats player. Possible interest in LB Peterson.
