    i am not sure you understood what i was saying. 

    i totally agree that you pick one or two kids in the draft's position of strength. this year, it is WR. having many wide receivers in the roster is no reason to not draft a wide receiver. i believe in drafting to push the bar on your starting roster. picking at the position of strength is how that is done.

    i made the pass rusher comment because last year the pats did not pick a pass rusher - i presume out of a belief that the team had many pass rushers. i believe there were a number of kids last year who could have upgraded the pass rush. 

    i think the team just got lucky with carter and anderson.

    Even with his less than stellar 40 time, I hope we grab Sanu.  As a Rutger's Alum I have watched him often. He will be a solid, great hands addition to our team with good character.

    he also had no QB, but still made plays on overthrown ball and passes behind him

    he's good.  Reminds me of Dwayne Bowe, could break tackles, could be a matchup nightmare, unjammable, huge catch radius

    Sanu is almost like a 3rd TE, like a Hernandez who can win blocks against DBs but still run fast

    I love the idea, but only if it's from our third pick onward (value)

     When I started this thread a week or so ago - it seemed like Sanu was hardly gettin' any pub at all ...especially compared to other wrs in the draft.

    ( Credit where credit is due  - If it wasn't for LAZ pumpin' him up ...I doubt I would have even taken the time to research him )

    Unfortunately , it's that time of year when draft prospects rise n fall ( at least in the media ) and it now appears that Sanu will likely not be available very long into the 2nd round ( if recent reports are to be believed ).

    Admittedly - I'm no draftnik ...

    but I know what I like .

    To me , Mohamad Sanu just seems like a player that we'll be hearing about for many years to come in the NFL .

     I'm hopin' Mike Reiss is a major contributer on that front.

    Thanks for the McNutt Vids seattlepat70 ...good stuff .

     I wouldn't mind seeing him in a Pats uni .

    I understand it's a "highlight" reel so obviously it's going to show his best stuff  , but I was struck by how many game clinching catches he snagged
     ( not just the receptions that resulted in pts. - but the chain moving - game ending ones)

     Crunch-time clutch receiver .

     Didnt see any of his blocking tho  - an area in which Sanu excels.
    ( maybe just the vid makers choice ? )

     Added McBonus :
    Next to Mercilus ....McNutts probably got the drafts best name .

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Mohamed Sanu : Interesting. I think Fleener is going to be a real good selection for someone, but I don't think you'd have much success playing him as a wideout (I think the quickness and speed needed, are more than he has).   Fleener makes a lot of nice catches on the move - running across the field, where the linebacker or safety has to go from standing still, to trying to cover him. It's a clear mismatch and he breaks free from coverage from it (as he should). I don't know if he would get open so easily with a corner standing right on top of him out wide - having to run outs and deeper stuff with a sideline and defender closing him in. Those are the things I think are best left for wide receivers. I think the guy will catch a lot of passes in the NFL, however I think they'll be more the tight end or maybe slot type of variety. Hell I'd take him at the end of round one just because he's a real good player and he ran a 4.45. I don't care that we have two good tight ends already - injuries happen and this guy would walk right in and give you 40 catches.

    Agreed.  BB takes Fleener if he drops to him. Moves Hernandez to the slot.

    I've been pumping him up on ESPN Boston boards, but nobody there has heard of him

    I watched Rutgers play all year with my roommate here at Iona.  He's the real deal, and his QB play was TERRIBLE

    With no QB, he was still making plays.  I really like the idea of combining him with Brady and watching him go.

    If he's there for either second round pick, I think he'd be worth it.  My question is where Janoris Jenkins goes. Can you get a safety, and possibly an OLB in the first round, then get a WR, then still get a great CB prospect at 63 in Jenkins?  that would be ideal

    Or bundle picks to get Barron (who I think is worth it), then nab Jenkins and Sanu? then re-sign Carter

    Somehow I just don't see BB drafting Fleener.  Sanu is a definite possibility but another TE?  Yes, I do understand the thinking behind moving Hernandez to the slot but I'm not convinced.

    Don't claim to be an expert so I certainly won't be shocked if Fleener ends up in the Pats column.

    Re: Mohamed Sanu

    Sanu gets a yes from me.  I don't know anything about his football intelligence, or lack thereof, but he hits in a number of important categories:

    First, he has overly long arms for his height, and his height is ok.  His hands are huge, which really helps him hang on to the ball and pull in those one-hand grabs.  Put Sanu against Kyle Shrimpy-Arms Wilson and if the ball comes to Sanu's side, he'll get it every time.  If it comes to Wilson's side he'll reach in and knock the ball away.

    Second, nobody else will want a player from a dinky school like Rutgers.  McCourty came from Rutgers and won rookie of the year but most teams will ignore that.

    Third, this guy turned in a 4.65 at the combine.  Can't run.  Except he was sick that day at the combine.  At his pro day he turned in a 4.41 and a 4.47.  Sounds like another Brandon Spikes slow combine numbers.  Which teams didn't send scouts to the Rutgers pro day?

    Fourth, fearless across the middle.  BB will appreciate that.

    They were hand timed results, but he definitely ran faster than his time at the Combine any way you slice it.  Surpisingly this result doesn't seem to have gotten a lot of hype so maybe he'll stay under the radar.  One can dream I suppose.

    Yeah I googled it - he ran a 4.51 (which isn't bad). From 0-10 yards he ran a 1.65..which I'm assuming isn't good. I doubt he or anyone else is capable of staying under the radar, if they were agents and scouts would be getting fired. I like him as a player and would love to see him here.

    Re: Mohamed Sanu

    I think Sanu goes somewhere in the 35-40 range.  Pats could trade down with the idea of getting him and acquiring an extra 4th rounder. 

    For instance, what if Cleveland wants to jump up to #27 to take Weeden?  They offer their 2nd round pick (36th overall) and their 4th rounder (100th overall).  Not bad, but my only gripe with this scenario is that Green Bay and Baltimore are both likely to target a DE/OLB type, so guys like McClellin and C. Jones could both be off the board by the 31st pick.
