Patriots Mock Draft (Rounds 1-4) Updated 3-10

Posted on: March 10, 2010 3:25 pm
 
Round 1 (22): Brandon Graham, DE Michigan
Graham was a monster at Michigan and I expect him to have a great NFL Career. He's also the perfect player for the Patriots 3-4 defense. He will play a hybrid OLB/DE type of a position and should make an impact right away. He was a relentless player at Michigan, even on a bad defense, just the kind of player that Belichick wants. Someone who wont take plays off and work hard everyday.

Round 2 (44): Arrelious Benn, WR Illinois
The Patriots don't have a young WR who can play alongside Moss at this point and it looks like they might lose Moss after the 2010 season, so they need a WR who could be a #1 in as early as 2011. Benn fits that role perfectly. He has good size at 6'1'' and ran a 4.48, 40 at the combine, so he has a nice combination of size and speed. He would be a solid pick for the Patriots.

Round 2 (47): Aaron Hernandez, TE, Florida
Since the Patriots lost both Baker and Watson, TE is a big need, so drafting Hernandez makes a lot of sense. Hernandez is a bit under sized at 6'3'' and 245 pounds, but has excellent receiving ability. I think he will need to become a better blocker, but he's a solid pick in the 2nd round.

Round 2 (53): Devin McCourty, CB, Rutgers

Another need for the Patriots is CB. With the possibly of losing both Springs and Bodden, the Patriots need to draft a CB. I think McCourty makes a lot of sense. McCourty, who has 4.4 speed would add youth and depth to the Patriots defensive back field.

Round 4 (116): Donovan Warren, CB, Michigan
There's a good chance Warren isn't on the board at #116, but if he is it would be a great pick for the Patriots. Warren is ready to step in right away and help a Patriots defensive back field that struggled in 09. He has great overall coverage and CB abilites. He's also a great athelete, with 4.4 speed. CB is a need for the Patriots, as Bodden is now a free agent, so drafting Warren would be a great pick.

Patriots Mock Draft (Rounds 1-4) Updated 3-10

Ah now this is more like it my friend. however I am still uncertain about drafting 2 CB's this year. There is decent depth at the RB position at the 53 spot I like a RB. This all depends on who has been taken and what moves have been made already, this is all up to bill he will take full advantage of the 3 day draft process this year. I keep getting more and more excited about the draft, keep up the good work man. I enjoy your analysis.
