    I don't think I'm the only one that's getting anxious about news, rumors anything Patriots, share links

    Well in answer to your question about Worilds he is the typical hybrid De/OLB the Patriots could use. He was a 2 time All Acc DE and he projects to be a 2nd-3rd round pick. I like your trying to figure out what the plan is for BB and the draft. Keep the guesses coming ! You'll get it right by the time the Draft gets here and it will keep you occupied. I constantly check the Mocks and both MCShay and The Hairdo like Sapp for the Patriots,but if Carlos Dunlop is available at number 22 it'll be hard for the Patriots not too take him.

    Worilds is an intriguing speed rusher off the edge, though you have to wonder how his elite straight line speed (4.49) transfers to the field.  Had an underwhelming 4.5 sacks this year in 13 games.  His height is also an immediate red flag in regards to BB's ideal height for a 3-4 OLB (he's not even 6-2).

    M.beaulieu: Don't forget that even though he had a tough season he also played with a shoulder injury. Never know how he'll play with the right coaching.He's fast enough and big enough as he measured out at 6'2 and 262 lbs. he also is supposed to have the pass defense skills to drop back in coverage! So he's a hybrid. Still I think if they can get Carlos Dunlop in the second round pencil his name in.

    Give the AD millions to Brackett and he will be in patriots uniform next season and no one will regret giving him 5 million

    Kiper's mock is out, this is not the mock but talks about who he thinks the Pats will pick.  Regardless of what you think about him or his hair the man knows college players and if they trully will have value.  I love who he thinks the Pats will pick

    More on Sapp, he fits BB's OLB mold.

    Ricky Sapp - Clemson (HT: 6'4" | WT: 250)
    Projection: 2nd Round

    Strengths:
    -Is always in the backfield, has a quick first step
    -Good change of direction speed, has very good lateral quickness to get around linemen and to the quarterback
    -Has good body control to easily recover when he makes mistakes
    -Has good length to keep blockers from controlling him
    -Explosiveness, uses his very good closing speed to make sacks or tackles
    -Could also be an OLB in a 3-4 scheme, comfortable in pass coverage
    -Plays with a high motor, always hustles
    -Can rush the quarterback from a stand-up or hand down position
    -Was a former track star in high school (10.76 100 meter, 21.0 200 meter dash)

    Weaknesses:
    -Sometimes overextends when trying to redirect
    -Has not shown the ability to break through a double team
    -Needs to add more bulk if he is to stay at DE in the NFL
    -Needs to improve tackling technique
    -Struggles to disengage once tied up
    -Is more of an athlete than a football player at this point
