In Response to Who do you think is obtainable in the 2010 draft?
[QUOTE]Jerry Hughes, DE, TCU Should be available in the late 1st round.... what do you think? Any other good prospects that could be in the neighborhood of the Pats picks?

I'm just going to copy and paste the players I named in another draft thread because I'm lazy.
1st Round - Brandon Graham DE (Michigan)
-- Has been a sacks machine throughout his Michigan career. Good speed rusher.Jason Pierre-Paul DE (USF)
-- Now, his stock is on the rise and I'm not sure the Patriots will be in position to grab him, but I love this dude. He's an absolute beast at 6'6" 265 lbs. He's playing some sick football in his first season out of junior college ball. I've watched him in a couple of games and he has an incredibly quick first step, he's strong, and basically just a disruptive force on the line.Jerry Hughes DE (TCU)
-- Plays at DE in college with great production; he's fast, strong, and gets a lot of sacks. He's projecting to probably be a 3-4 OLB in the pro game. He's versatile, and Belichick loves
versatility.Sergio Kindle OLB (Texas)
-- If the Pats want a linebacker that gets to the quarterback, Kindle is perfect.
2nd Round - Pats have three picks here so far and they have a great opportunity to shore up a few positions. I'd like to see one pick go to a DE or OLB, whichever position they didn't draft in the first round. I also would like to see them potentially go after a RT to replace Kaczur, then a RB or a WR/TE depending on who's available. Brady needs a good third WR, and I'd like to see them draft someone, but I also think they might be letting go of Ben Watson in free agency and there will probably be a couple of quality TEs in the second round. A few players I'm keeping my eye on:Jonathan Dwyer RB (Georgia Tech)
-- I know at least a couple of you are looking at him, too. He's a big, powerful dude at 6'0" 235 lbs, so I find his 4.4-4.5 speed incredibly impressive. He breaks through tackles like a total beast. We all love CJ Spiller, but Dwyer is a great talent and he won't require as high a pick as Spiller will.Von Miller DE/OLB (Texas A&M)
-- He leads the nation in sacks this season with 17. With the problems the Patriots are having, that's pretty appealing.Anthony McCoy TE (USC)
-- He's durable, fast, and he has very soft hands and great body control.
