Re: Patriots 1st Round & 2nd Round Mock Update- April 3rd

All interesting mocks for 1-2.
49Pats..would love to trade our 22 for KC's 36 & 50. Don't see Pioli buying it as he has more holes to fill than us, and he knows how deep this draft is...but, love it.
Mords draft is interesting...If Graham is there at 22, I would use the pick and draft him. Also like the Hughes pick in round 2, but I do question the Gerhart and Houston picks.
As much as I like Gerhart, my feeling is we get out of the 2nd with no RB's, and look to the 4th or trade up into the 3rd and grab Ben Tate.
Houston...I love the guy, but not sure he is a true 3-4 DE. I know he can play the DT spot well in a 4-3, but I think what we need given our abundance of DT's on the roster now, is a pure 3-4 DE in the mold of Sey.
So, using Mord's mock I'm adding mine..(Thanks Mord)
22 - Graham if there (i think he can play 4-3 DE, OLB and is versatile..like him)
44 - Gronkowski (TE of the future and the now..best all around TE in draft i think)
47 - Alualu (our 3-4 DE, can move to DT in a 4-3)
53 - DWilliams/Emmanuel Sanders (WR...good route runners, instant 2nd or 3rd WR's)
Possibly flip flop 47 & 53...but I think the Pats need to go WR in round 2...I think there is WR talent all the way into round 7, just not sure the quality...I really like Emmanual Sanders as he had a great pro-day and looked the most polished amongst all WR's coming out this year...several analysts comments..., Graham adds instant strength to the front 7 and will be versatile, Alualu is our starting DE day 1, Gronkowski the same.
