In Response to What do you guys think? (My Draft wishlist)
The draft is loaded with great 2nd round talent. Does anyone like what could be? Anything you would do different? Why?... Pick 22- Trade with KC for pick 36 & 50. Pick 36 - Alex Carrington , DE, Arkansas State - 6'5, 285 lbs, run stopper. Pick 44 - Eric Norwood , OLB, S. Carolina - 6'2, 245 lbs, Pass-rusher, leader, Bruschi-like heart. Pick 47 - Jared Veldheer , OT, Hillsdale - 6'8, 312 lbs, Vollmer clone. Pick 50 - Ben Tate , RB, Auburn - 5'11, 220 lbs, Fits into what NE likes to do with their RBs. A mixture of Morris and Faulk. Pick 53 - Sean Lee , ILB, Penn State - 6'2, 236 lbs, Smart player, leader. Pick 119 - Brain Jackson , CB, Oaklahoma - 6'1, 202 lbs, Ty Law type DB. Pick 190 - Andrew Quarless , TE, Penn State - 6'5, 254 lbs, Alge Crumpler 2. Good speed, great blocker that only gets better with time, mediocre hands. Pick 205 - John Estes , OG/C, Hawaii - 6'2, 295 lbs, versatile, former fighter, smart, athletic, fits into the spread offensive line well. Pick 229 - Chris Carter , WR, UC Davis - 6'0, 191 lbs, has the right name to be good at the WR position, Welker type receiver, throw him the ball and he'll get you the first. Pick 231 - Tim Knicky , OLB, F. Austin - 6'4, 247 lbs, to me, he's just a 3rd down rusher. Pick 247 - Trindon Holliday , KR/PR, LSU- 5'0, 166 lbs, I love what Tate might bring to the table, but I would rather keep him at WR. Everytime I saw Welker go out to field a punt my heart nearly stopped. It's time to draft a specialist. Pick 248 - Scott Long , WR, Loiusville - 6'2, 216 lbs, has great potential. He reminds me of a mixture of alot of receivers Brady loved passing to. Pick 250 - Reid Neely , OG, Mississippi - 6'6, 310 lbs, Outstanding blocker, blocked for BJE in college, wants to hit people.

You might get your wish! Then again you might not. I like to read everyone's wish lists of things to happen in the draft. I live in Florida these days and would love to see the Patriots use their picks on some of the players I've had to watch on the local feeds from CBS,ABC and NBC down here which means a lot of SEC,ACC and Big East games. I know a lot of folks are down on Tebow but if the Patriots could find a way too draft him they would be getting the Heir apparent for Tom Brady,if they need an Offensive player all of the guys from Florida should be on their radar and the guys from Clemson Spiller,Ford,and Palmer. The ACC was loaded with talent again this year and this draft is littered with the guys from that conference. If you had too build a secondary from these guys Nate Allen,Jerome Murphy,Joe Haden,Major Wright,Javier Arenas,Kareem Jackson,Chris Cook,Chris Chancellor,Brandon Ghee,Patrick Robinson,Crzesdon Butler,Nolan Carroll,Prince Miller,Chad Jones,Myron Rolle,Eric Berry,Kam Chancellor,Randy Phillips,and these are just the DB's and Safeties! This area was loaded with top end defensive players... The offensive player weren't sub par by any means. With just a few names like Spiller,Ford,Hardesty,Dwyer,James,Holiday,Scott,Peek,Hernandez,Cooper,Nelson,
Dixon,McCluster and this isn't even close to the tip of iceberg as far as players coming out of these conferences. Those are 30 of the best those 3 conferences have to offer it's like a damn smorgasborg of high quality football players!!! I'm thinking between the 3 conferences there are at least 75 players available in this draft,what that means to Patriots fans is a lot of these guys are going to passed over and they will be available in the late rounds which the Patriots now have 7 picks in,I've always liked the old saying that Good news always travels fast.....
