There is always free agency to shore up the defense. I hope we draft defense in the first round also but we don't need all our additions to come through the draft so if we go offense we will be fine.

we also don't need to fix everything this offseason.

we just need to take solid steps in the right direction and always be trying to improve.

always be building.

Am I the only one that doesn't want a DT in the 1st or 2nd? I don't want to sit through another year of rookie DT's playing when there is no Suh in this draft.

We won't be able to get Claiborn after we win this Saturday, so I am hoping for that LT from Iowa. Dude seems to be legit.
After that, I want best (defensive) player available in the second.

We already drafted DTs last season, who says we need to draft more?

we draft a DT, try them for a year, give up, draft another? yeah, you'd be a sh*t GM.

Because the two carolina drafted are swinging gates in the middle.

I don't want Blackmon or a DT.

Offensive line is getting old and Byron Bell sucks. Otah can be used as trade bait. Om nom nom. I want an O-Lineman with the first.

Cornerback with the 2nd please.

Outside linebacker with one of those two if we don't get an O-Lineman or a CB. Thomas Davis is not the answer, and Senn will be a good backup, but he's not starter material.

Or maybe we switch to the 3-4 scheme and play Davis/Senn, Anderson, Beason, and a passrusher draft pick?

So many decisions, glad I don't have to make them.

so what does the pats do with all those draft picks anyways?

rarely are they ever put to good use, imo.

oh...and how many playoff games have they won since they went to the superbowl last time?

i think i'll try to find a better pattern to follow.

thanks.


Yea i forgot about the prevailing mentality that the Pats are like the gold standard of drafting as well. Yea they're good at manipulating the actual picks they have, better than anyone else, but if you look at who they actually select at those picks they're average at best. As a matter of fact, 5 out of their 12 picks from the 2010 draft aren't even on the team anymore. 6 of their 12 picks from the 2009 draft aren't on the team anymore as well.

They've done a terrible job replacing their old defense personnel-wise (Seymour, Harrison, Vrabel, Law, Bruschi, Milloy)

If the Patriots want to keep giving us their second round pics I'm cool with that too.

I think who falls to us in the first dictates the rest of our draft. Now that Barkley isn't coming out, Luck, RG III, and Jones are the likely top 3 QB's on the board. We'd basically have to finish below the Redskins, Dolphins, and Browns to trade down due to their need of a starting QB and the fact I believe RG III will go in the top 5. Who knows, maybe a team will offer us a trade down, but it's tough to predict such things. If I had to order the best case scenarios for Carolina this would be it.

1. Matt Kalil
2. Morris Claiborne
3. Trade down
4. Justin Blackmon
5. Jonathan Martin
