    Bedard Speculates

    (Sorry I can't post the link from today's paper)

    He says from what he's hearing the Pats are studying the receivers in the draft very closely.  He goes on to speculate that they could do something like 2010 where they drafted two tight ends, but this time two WRs.

    I must say I don't buy it, but BB has been known to pull a draft day surprise or two.

    I think it makes sense.  The receiving corp is very thin and if Gronk is now a question mark, it's even thinner than I thought.

    The big surprise would be if he took two WRs in the first three rounds - He may do a double-dip with a WR in the first three rounds another in the 7th round.

    This is my belief as well... gonna be tough to double up on Day 1/2 unless they're able to add picks. 

    They were able to double up in previous years because they had a lot more picks/flexiblity, etc.

    This wouldn't surprise me one bit.  Josh McD apparently has a lot of influence with what BB does and he could be pushing for good, young receivers from the draft.

    Two young big fast WRs would be nice

    If it's up to me, I'm looking Hopkins/Allen in Rd 1 OR Bailey/Patton/Wheaton/Rogers in Rd 2, then maybe following up with a TJ More or Mark Harrison (or another upside type kid) in Rd 7.

    Which makes it more likely that if they do get Sanders before the April 19 deadline, they may only go 1 WR (your choice and mine Hopkins) in the draft at that point.

     

    Sanders just turned 26.

    It's like using a pick for WR in this draft at that point.

    I believe BB used his 2nd and 7th for Welker in 2007 and Welker was 26.

    This draft could very well be similar to how he looked at 2007, and used a multitude of picks simply to get what he wants.   As much as it's a need for WR here, I don't think he needs to beholden to the draft to accomplish the goal.

     



    Under this scenario, say Hopkins in Rd 1 and Sanders as your Rd 3, I'd expect to see them target a CB (DJ Hayden, etc.) or maybe a DT like John Jenkins (if he's available) in Rd 2.  Interesting to see if they'd spend (2) Top 100 picks on WR... my instincts say no, but it's certainly conceivable.

    Re: Bedard Speculates

    With 5 picks, 2 of which are 7th rounders, very doubtful they use 2 on WR. More likely they resign Edelman and pick one or sign Sanders.

    Re: Bedard Speculates

    here some possibilities.

    Draft a Wr in the first and other in the seventh. Maybe Allen or Hopkins in the first and Mark Harrison or Marquess Wilson in the seventh.

    Draft a Wr in the second and third. Rogers, Woods, Wheaton, Dobson, Bailey...

    Give a third round pick for Sanders and Draft a WR in the seventh.

    Harrison in rd. 7 sounds like a try...he's huge, fast and can catch...which makes me think he won't be there in rd. 7......anyone know what his team play deficiencies are?...I remember reading something about not really liking football that much...



    Inconsistent overall and wasn't that productive (44-583-6 in 2012, 14-274-2 in 2011).  Def a Day 3 kid, with prob Rd 5 upside, IMO.
