[QUOTE]In Response to Re: If you were the Pats G.M. this offseason..... : Posted by natesubs[/QUOTE] In the draft it's simple for me... DE Vin Curry ...........round 1 trade down for a 2nd this year and a 1st next year ....round one C mike brewster.......round 2 TE Cob Fleener opposite Gronk...round 2 Janoris Jenkins, CB, North Alabama .... round 2 sign laron Landry, manny lawson, royal in FA resign carter, anderson, welker, guyton add another gronkesque TE and move hernandez to WR and beef up the lines with studs like curry and brewster. think we can do with a lower round center fa fs, wr and lawson/roth no guyton for me. will take a blocking/receiving te for sure

Pretty much with you on this...
I definitely want Curry and Fleener, and Brewster would be nice as well.
I don't want to see any more young CB's drafted. We just have the cupboards full at this point with youth. we need experience there. Between McCourty, Arrington, Ras, Molden, Moore, etc., that is tons of youth. Need to offset it with experience.
Nate indicated drafting Hightower. Overall, I like him, but I think he is redundant if we stay running more 4-3. He basically is Spikes in the middle. He has more value in a 3-4, where he and Mayo or Spikes could roam the middle. Spikes is too slow to kick outside in either scheme. So, for me, I'm looking for more of a 4-3 SOLB. I don't like what I see beyond round 1, and most of the kids I like in round 1 should be gone by the time we draft. Therefore, I would look to FA for this position.
I don't buy Curry as strictly a 3-4 OLB. I think he has tons of value in either scheme, especially if you put him next to a good DT. He and Carter as bookends, with Anderson/Deaderick as depth is what I want.
I'm still not comfortable with our DL. Love is okay, but in my mind, not a starter. Pryor possibly a starter, but often hurt. Ellis I don't see back, same with Warren. Brace a big ?, and Deaderick, not sure where he fits exactly. I think I like him as either a 3-4 DE or 4-3 DE. He is depth with Anderson for Curry and Carter.
Don't want Guyton back. I would like to see us slightly overhaul the LB corps. I'm okay with signing Landry. I like a Vet here, but also want us ot draft a safety for development. Sh!tcan sergio brown, ventrone. Going into next year, I would like at safety - Chung, Landry/other FA, Lester, Ihedigbo (good depth/ST value). Sterling Moore battles it out with Molden/Adams for CB spot. I like Moore better because he is a bit more versatile than Molden. Adams gets the boot.
