« Patriots by position: CB | Main | Pitchers and Poets »

April 21, 2009



several of the really good safties will be on the board at #47, why chew up #34 when the needs at DL, OT, or OLB (whatever wasn't taken at #23) looms over '10, and will be much harder to fill then a S. A good S could also be had at #89.


I see CB/OLB or OLB/OG with the first two picks.

After #34, the Pats can still grab a S/DL/ILB as the range of players at those positions are similiar over the rest of the first day.

I would like to see the Pats grab a safety as well in the 2/3rd range. Johnson would add leadership which will be missed with Rodney gone. Not sure if he has the fire or hitting power the likes of Chung and Delmas, where we will also miss Rodney....



Why can't we just clone Rodney? No, seriously! :)


I'm skeptical about the Pats using a day one pick on a safety. They just re-signed James Sanders to a long-term deal, they have Brandon Meriweather who seems to be coming on, and they also signed Tank Williams to a 1-year deal, continuing the hybrid safety/linebacker experiment that started last training camp. That hybrid role was something Rodney was doing before he got hurt, so perhaps the Pats think they have Rodney's replacement in Tank. We'll know very shortly, but out the draft prospect bunch, I think Chung is the most intriguing for the Patriots.

Chung and Rashad Johnson are too small-5'11", 6' respectfully for ss . Moore big enough but does have that toughness and agressiveness that BB requires? Delmas looks good for fs .
