Time to post the offensive player's I've got who fit the Patriot mold...
Offensive tackle - I see the Pats going line (both offensive and defensive) early and often, there's a really good selection of O linemen in this year's draft class.
Nate Solder - In my eyes the best tackle prospect in the draft, huge at 6'8" 320 pounds with the best vertical and shuttle time at his position, 2nd best 40 time and played against solid competition. Needs to get a little stronger but a bench press is little indicator of total body strength...
Nate Castonzo - Right up there with Solder, I know most people have him ranked higher, the difference between the two is minimal.
Derek Sherrod - Only ranked slightly lower on my board the difference is also slight, this draft is stacked with talented tackles.
If the team doesn't spend an early pick at tackle, some guys to look at in the later rounds would be Chris Hairston, Joe Barksdale, Jarriel King or Jah Reid.
Guard - Another need position for the Pats, especially if they tag and move Mankins.
Danny Watkins - Prototypical size/weight ratio, very mobile and strong.
John Moffit - Big, heavy and mobile, New England native who needs to get a little stronger but has experience at center.
Steve Schilling - From O Line factory Michigan, extraordinary combination of size strength and athleticism.
Clint Boling - Another strong bruiser with little downside.
Other possibilities late include Julian Vandervelde who needs to add strength but is supremely athletic, Andrew Jackson and David Arkin. Zack Hurd might project better at tackle, Garrett Chisolm and Marcus Cannon may be projects taken in the late rounds.
Center - Just a quick glance at center, this is more in the hopes that we'll add some beef to what amounts to a light line.
Ryan Bartholomew - Short but heavy, very mobile and incredibly strong.
Stefan Wisniewski - In a recent pre-draft rant I suggested we should draft Clay Matthews for his bloodline alone, this is another one of those circumstances.
Brandon Fusco - Small school prospect who needs to get stronger but the athleticism is there.
Kris O'Dowd - good combination of mobility and strength but has a history of injury. As a late pick might be worth a look...
Tight End - Don't discount the idea of Belichick taking a tight end early, he has a fondness for the position and Alge Crumpler isn't getting any younger.
Jordan Cameron - If athletic talent alone determined draft status this guy would be a high 1 pick, as it stands if BB is looking at tight ends late this kid is raw but very talented.
Rob Housler - Small school prospect with a ton of talent.
Virgil Green and Lance Kendricks might be more fullback than tight end (ala Aaron Hernandez) but there may be room on our roster for more players like these two.
Wide Receiver - Always a position of need when talent is left laying on the board, when the 2nd and 3rd rounds roll around that's typically when BB finds small school gems.
Julio Jones - In my eyes the best receiver prospect in the draft, probably won't be there when we pick but worth snatching up if possible. Would fill the dreams of the draftniks who pine over the "big" receiver, but highly unlikely that BB will burn a pick on a receiver that high in the draft... Torry Smith and Leonard Hankerson also fall into this category.
Far more likely:
Ricardo Lockette - A division 2 receiver with everything you look for in a receiver; size, speed, agility... remember Jerry Rice was a small school guy.
Aldrick Robinson - Another tiny but extremely quick slot guy who looks custom made for this offense.
Edmund Gates - Too fast to be ignored...
Denarius Moore - fast, agile, underrated...
Niles Paul - They don't catch a lot of passes at Nebraska but he is big fast and agile.
Joe Morgan - Tiny school but good measurables...
Running back - See what I said about receivers above, BB might spend a high pick on one of these glory positions but highly unlikely. Some of these guys might be hanging around the 2nd or 3rd:
Demarco Murray - Might need to pack on a few pounds but productive, really fast, agile and strong...
Jordan Todman - smallish but really strong, effective runner.
Mario Fannin - perfect combination of height, weight and speed who lost some of his stock due to fumbles, if he can be coached up at the next level is talented enough to be a star.
Roy Helu - good size and speed but needs to get stronger
Alex Green - big, fast, powerful
Anthony Allen - big bruiser who runs tall, but good athlete
Derrick Locke might be a change of pace back to fill in for Woodhead if need be.
QB's - I didn't do a lot of QB homework but I tend to look for someone tall, with a high completion percentage, who threw a lot of passes in a pro system, has a good ratio of TD's/INT's and has a decent average yards per attempt.
These are my QB's, regardless of draft status or hype, all are 6'4" or taller with relevant stats attached, if BB spots one he likes sitting there don't be surprised if he snatches one up:
Ryan Mallett - 65%, 411 att, 32 tds/12 ints, 9.4 ypa
Colin Kaepernick - 65%, 359 att, 21 tds/8 ints, 8.4 ypa
Ricky Stanzi - 64%, 345 att, 25 tds/6 ints, 8.7 ypa
Mike Hartline - 66%, 405 att, 23 tds/9 ints, 7.8 ypa
Taylor Potts - 67%, 551 att, 35 tds/10 ints, 6.8 ypa
Blaine Gabbert - 63%, 475 att, 16 tds/9 ints, 6.7 ypa
Obviously Potts loses points for playing at Texas Tech which has a "Run And Shoot" style offense and some of you will think I'm crazy for dropping Gabbert (considered the #1 rated QB in the draft) to the bottom of my chart but this is Wozzy's draft guide not Kipers... he said Ryan Leaf and Matt Leinart were can't miss, #1 overalls; what does that hack know?
Again this list wasn't compiled with any seriousness so feel free to rip it apart... and when the draft is over you'll realize Wozzy knows more than you... or Kiper at least.
