Their probably going to take McFadden so they can win another 4 superbowls *sigh*


they also have the shot of moving down mid rd and getting another 1st rd pick again, they wouldnt mind doing that, but they will take BPA, seeing as that they will have top 3 pick

Only top pick worth getting is Dorsey... if he's available i wouldn't be surprised seeing the pats take him (even though they're set at the D-line), otherwise they trade down!
My league: 14 teams, 1 QB, 2 RB's, 3 WR's, 1 Flex WR/RB, 1 TE, 1 Kicker, 1 Defense. 6 Bench players.

Something just popped into my head.

Best case scenario for the Pats:

They trade their top 5 pick back to the 49ers for Patrick Willis and 49ers 1st round pick (acquired from the Colts, so around 28).

That would fill the Patriots need for a young LB and allow them to grab another quality player.


Note: There is no way in hell the 49ers would let themselves get worked over like this unless they were able to land a Franchise QB the calibur of Peyton Manning in the draft.

i don't think the 49ers are gonna give up on alex smith yet, he's had 3 different offensive coordinators in 3 years. and their defense is getting better, i doubt they let willis go, especially after julian peterson left and is playing well now.

i don't know the draft class of this year well, but i assume the pats are gonna trade down to stockpile picks so they can get a bunch of young defensive guys that will be ready to phase out bruschi/vrabel/harrison down the road.

Best case scenario is that they get the number 1 pick and use it on a player that busts so bad that they make Ryan Leaf like a hall-of-famer.

And no, I am not a Pats hater - I just honestly think that most of their fans dont know anything about football or sportsmanship.

Oh, and I hate the Red Sox too, mainly cause just like the Yankees they have no idea about talent identification or development. Just big checkbooks.

Boston is nice, but the accents on the locals are so annoying.

Great contribution to the thread ;-7 .

You're "not a Pats hater", but you "hate the Red Sox too". Those two pharses seem to be in direct contradiction with one another. While the Red Sox have one of the largest payrolls, they seem to be pretty good at developing talent in the minors (Papelbon, Buchholz, Pedroia, Youk, etc.). I do think your last sentence is right on the mark though.

McFadden would be great if he's available to them. If not, I could see them taking Chris Long, who should definitely be on the board when they pick in the 3-8 range.

If both of those guys are off the board, they'll probably try to trade back with a team looking to move up for a QB.

No.......they shouldnt have. They took thier own draft pick...that was the appropriate thing to do.

It is "their own." Once it switched hands, it became the Pats. This was an unprecedented offense. You can argue specifics, but the default problem is that a team who was caught cheating could also have a top five pick, and this makes sense how?
The opening scene of the movie "Saving Private Ryan" is loosely based on games of dodgeball Brian Dawkins played in second grade.

If you really wanna get me stahted on this......That is an ignorant statement saying that the Sox have no idea about talent identification or development. Smaht statement man really....I'll just tell you:

Clay Buccholz
Jon Lestah
Manny Delcahmen
Jon Papelbon
Kevin Youkilis
Dustin Pedroia
Beckett and Lowell they used theah top prospect and one of the GAMEs top prospects to land, so don't tell me they don't know how to develop a fahm system.

And yes you are a Pats hater, you hate the fans and I'm sure you hate the team too, just get ovah it man. And you said I hate the sawx to so that does imply that you hate both.

And bringin up accents is just stupid and has nothing to do with anything, way to stay on topic on this thread.
