The Team: Getting a young WR to go with their young QB would be a smart move here. 

The Player: The Pats could be looking at some WRs in this Draft, with all the injuries and inconsistencies they suffered this season. Gallup is one of the most productive WRs in a while. He garnered 1,271-yards and 14 TDs on 76 catches. 
He is very shifty and makes great quick cuts in pattern and with the ball in his hands. Nice snap inside on Slant. He can use his hands to block the CB with come enthusiasm on runs to his side. He does a nice job getting inside position on the CB, on runs inside. Not big or strong, but plays his position well. 
They like to motion him around the line. He will grab more than block the DB on the second level in the run game. He can make a great play on the ball that is way off, while he is being grabbed and pulled by the CB. He can get physicalled out of the catch by the CB in pattern, when the refs lets them push, pull, and grab. But he can be a very physical WR as well.
Nice elusiveness with the ball in his hands. He can make some nice lateral burst to make the CB miss. He can run through the leg tackle for extra yards. Stronger than he looks with the ball in his hands, and can lower his shoulder and run over the CB. Uses his hands nicely in pattern to shove off the CB. 

The Reason: I think Gallop will be a great West Coast WR.

The Team: They need to get some rush.

The PlayerOkoronkwo is a tough one for me. I'm just not sure he has the size. But having near 34" arms was a huge number for me. He has everything you want in a speed rusher, except height. He showed he could use his long arms and hands to hold off great blockers at the Senior Bowl. He show he was a great explosive athlete at the Combine. When you are top five Vertical leap and Broad jump over 10-feet than you have elite explosion. Ogbonnia showed that elite explosion on the field at the Senior Bowl.

Great spin move under the ORT. He uses his lack of height perfectly to get under the 6-6 plus ORTs. He got two sacks in the 1st half against Isaiah Prince, who many think will be the starting OLT for Ohio State in 2018. Very impressive player who has everything you want in an edgerusher except size. I love this kid.
They will go into more of a 4-3, and he will play off the line LB as well. That is very important for him. He has experience as an off the ball linebacker. He is great at using his hands, arm, and feet to make OLs miss in space. When he is at the Will, you cannot send the RB outside to his side. Great burst to the edge, and is a sure tacklers. 
He gets up field fast. He can juke the ORT with his feet. Great speed and quicks. He is small. So he is more of an edge blitzer than rusher, but he has that knack for hitting the quarterback. He is a superb athlete who can play LB in the NFL.

The Team: The Bills have to get some help inside on the O-line. 

The Player: Hernandez is such a great power blocker at the point. When he hits guys you can see their head snap back like whiplash. Great job turning and driving the DT five yards back and sideways. His ex-coach is now coaching the Broncos. He was great in the first Pass Pro drill Senior Bowl. 

He may have worked himself into the 1st with his work in practice at SB. "He's exactly what you are looking for in terms of his work ethic and how much he loves the game," a scout said. " He will clique instantly in the offensive line room, and he will be one of the strongest and toughest guys on the team as soon as he makes the roster. The only thing that scares me are those short arms." He dominated pass pro drills at SB, while his mates were getting killed. 

He is a little short t 6-2. "I can’t do anything about [that]. But I can definitely make up for it with technique, power and everything that comes with it," Hernandez said. "Learning a lot from coach Kuges, too. So that helps me. O-line is all technique. Obviously you need some power in there. But technique is the most important thing." He is very strong and can stand up to anyone.

The Reason: The Bills get lucky. Maybe the best OG prospect in Draft falls to them in the 2nd.

FB Mike Tolbert 

DT Paul Soliai 

The Team: Carolina needs some youth at D-end. Holland is the best speed rusher left on the Board. This is not a good spot to be taking an edge guy.

The Player: Key was much better in 2016. He had some kind of break down in the off season. When he returned he was not near the player he was in 2016. He was a lock top ten pick coming into last season. Now? I would not be surprised if he dropped out of Day Two. He seemed to be playing in a fog for half of 2017.
I have no idea what he will be as an NFL player, and I don't think anyone else can say with certainly either. He was not the player or person he was in 2017 that he was in 2016, when everyone wanted to draft him. No one can say for certain that he will ever be that person again. If he struggles in interviews, like I think he will, he will go in Day Three (unless there is a team that are suckers for lack of character players).
Alabama: He is so explosive upfield when he is locked in. He can burst inside the TE, and if the OLT doesn’t help, the QB is going down. He does a nice job covering the RB sneaking out of the backfield. Great job chopping the ORT's arm down, and dipping to the QB. He looked like he was finally playing mentally like he did last season against Alabama. Auburn: They were dropping him off in coverage a lot against Auburn. Then they lined him up at DT, but that didn't go very well. He barely affected the game. They seemed to change his role this season. He was a player who they always wanted to move forward. Now, they seem unsure. 
FLA: He consistently plays stand up OLB. He will cover the RB sneaking out of the backfield on the screen. He can be physical at the point, and power Rip inside to the RB. Terrific job putting speed to power to knock the blocker back, and burst inside. Nice job sliding inside to get in front of the RB on the drive. He will lose the edge to a big power blocker sometimes. But he does a great job chasing guys down from behind. 
Miss ST: He can look so blah and uninterested on the sideline, but on the field he hustles and finds a way to get himself into positon. He beat Rankins with an inside move to hit the QB on the first play he rushed. He can rush upfield past the ORT with a shoulder fake. Great quickness to make the big blocker miss. Nice timing to leap up in the QBs face when he can't quite reach him. Terrific burst to the ORT's outside shoulder, and Dip into the QB with some nice smoothness. Flashes some 2016 dominances sometimes.

The Team: They have to get an LB who can cover over the middle. The Pats RBs and TE killed the Bills D out of the backfield. 

The Player: Jefferson is a great tackler in the middle. Good blitzer off the edge. Nice job using his hands to fight off the OL, and then grab the RB and try to rip the ball out as he takes him down. The problem is how valuable is a run stuffing ILB in the NFL now. Nice job slipping around the line and grabbing the RB on short yardage to stop him. Not bad moving laterally in zone defense. 

Combine: I question his instincts. Elite athlete, but he disappears in games a lot. He is an ILB who can stuff the run. When he sees the RB in front of him, he finds it. He can get a little lost in coverage, and doesn't always play smart. Great burst forward. He can really move low and mean. Nice speed moving back in drop drill. Caught the ball. Nice hips. He can open his hips to either side. He looked very good in club rip.

Key F.A. Lost:

WR Kendall Wright

The Team: Harrison is a big FS who can play Cover One and hit like a truck.. 

The Player: Harrison played Free Safety for Alabama last season. "He's a feisty guy," a scout said. "Big and athletic but he's not really the brains of the defense over there. He's not really 'that dude' who runs the show and I don't think he's going to be that kind of guy in the pros. He handles his work though." He was not a Strong Safety. 

He played a ton of Cover One, as Fitzpatrick played in the Box and in the Slot. But he has the size of SS, and hit like one as well. However, what makes him special is his ability to play deep coverage in Cover One for a guy his size. He is surpassingly athletic. 

The Reason: How cool would it be to pair up these to Alabama athletes to help their defense.

The Team: I have Nose Tackle as their biggest need left over from last season. 

The Player: When he hits RB, they bend in ways they shouldn't. He moves forward into the flat as fast any safety in this Draft. This kid looks like a 1st to me. Terrific feet in pedal moving backwards in Cover Two. He so quick outside to pop the WR out of bounds after the catch. 

The Reason: He kind of reminds me of Grady Jarrett. They need a Nose tackle, but the idea of putting a Grady Jarrett clone next to Grady Jarrett will make Pats fans wake up with the sweats at night.

The Reason: Roethlisberger is not long for the League. They need to load up the offense to make it as easy as on him as they can over the next couple of years.

The Player: He played all over the line at the Senior Bowl. He needs to get stronger, but he can play all three interior OL positions, and played OLT at Nevada. He looks like a plug and play OG. he might even be able to start at OC as a rookie. Nice quick feet moving backwards. He is going to be a instant starter in the NFL. He gets nice He did a good job getting back in slide drill. Showed nice aggression pulling outside. Great form and technique moving outside in pass pro from OC. Smooth and controlled. He stopped moving when the rabbit slipped. He moved smoothly and natural when the rabbit went nuts in mirror drill. One of the best I've seen inside.

The Team: The Pats secondary fell apart in the Super Bowl with the benching of Butler. They need a ball hawk who can turn the ball over. Jackson led the NCAA in INTs, PBUs, and passes defended. He made an incredible one handed interception against Ohio State that I don't think anyone else in this Draft could make that play. 

Jackson is not the fastest CB. But his burst and elite quicks make him look faster on the field. He is also tall and well built. He plays the run with aggression. He has the best eyes in coverage. 

This is such a tough one to figure out. We really don't know which direction the Pats are going yet. It looks like they have to get a big TE, and soon. But this is a big Tight End class this year. They should be able to snag a good developmental guy at 43 or 63. Gronk is already planning his escape, and in a year or two he should be gone.

We have been talking about BB and Brady retiring together, but now it looks like Gronk and Brady might retire together. "I think it's becoming more common those days. Guys going to college and then after three years [declaring] you know, Gronkowski was like that," Belichick said. "I mean, there have been other examples, but I'd say it's more frequent now. Not certainly the norm, but it just happens more often. They don't redshirt. Well, even if they do redshirt their freshman year, it doesn't make any difference. Once they've been [in school for] three years, if they want to come out, they can come out. I know in our scouting, there's a lot of players that we're scouting that this is their third year. 

"You know, Jabrill Peppers. I mean, there's another kid, I don't think he played his freshman year, didn't play much, whatever it was. So a lot of guys like that that come out after three years. You've got to be ready for them from the scouting standpoint and bring them onto your team. It just kind of widens the gap between the youth of them and the age of your veterans, whatever that is. We're all dealing with it. Every team in the league's got them." They have to  get a couple guys who can step in for Brady and Gronk in a year or two.

However, the OLT position is starting to shine through the gloom. Without Solder, and Fleming and Waddle unsigned, it is a vast QB-killing blackhole. That is not how you want to start the season. I thought Fleming played better at OLT, and Waddle was pretty good there as well. 

Walter had Fleming as the 2nd Free Agent OLT behind Solder, and Waddle as the 8th best left. Some JAG from Roto made a top 50 FAs Left List and the only OT left was 4. Cameron Fleming– "Closed out last season as Patriots starting RT. Room to grow at age 25." That's kind-ah scary dude.

Walter obviously thinks they need to sign Fleming and Waddle, and pray for rain. I personally like both at OLT, but they need help against speed, and that can take White or Allen out of patterns for chipping and protection. The Pats have been in contact with both guys, and want both to return. However with this terrible class of free Agent OLTs, they are the best that is left.

They should have some options here. They will have to give some money to Fleming or Waddle, or hopefully both to resign them. If McGlinchey, Rankins, or Miller falls to the they will have to take them quick. I have Miller rated above both, but most have McGlinchey above Miller, and Rankins somewhere in the middle. Rankins might be the best athlete of the three. 

The bad news for the Pats is that Miller ran a Unofficial 4.98, and then an (U) 4.91. I had him rated as the top OLT in this Draft. McGlinchey didn't run or do everything. "Notre Dame will even tell you that McGlinchey is better on the right side than the left side," a scout said. "He's just more comfortable and consistent there so that's probably where you play him. I think everyone tries to beat him up too much. He's going to play in our league and be a decent starter." That is not good news for the Pats.

The Player: 4/22 Josh Jackson: Play CB like a WR.

The Reason: I'm not sure they need a CB. They still have the two Jones' boys who didn't play at the end of last season. But Jackson is too good to pass up here.

Second Choice: Josh Sweat DE/OLB

The Team: They are so overloaded with picks they can afford to grab a versatile DE, who can rush inside with their two elite Edge guys.  

The Player: Hand does a great job getting up field. Great job stunting inside. Freakish player. They have to play him out of position on the edge, and he was getting some passrush. He might end up being a 5-Tech, or inside rusher. He can get up field fast. Nice job slanting inside and turning up field to the QB.

He just kept looking like an elite edge guy in the Champ game. Then they put a TE on him, and he punch him off and went and sacked the QB, like a veteran OLB. Only he's the size of a 280-pound 5-Tech. He can also rush right up the middle like an elite 3-tech. He is such a unique player that he is difficult to classify. The best comparison might be Flowers. An elite athlete at DE, with the size of a 5-Tech.
He looked great in the champ game against Clemson. He finally looked healthy and twitchy. He can move inside and hold off the big ORG, and hold his position on the outside shoulder. He has a nice burst up field to the QB, when the OLT gets out of position. Terrific job stunting inside. They will line him up as a stand up rusher, and he will set the edge with some power. Takes on the pulling OG as the stand up rusher, and still sets the edge. 

The Reason: Best player available pick.

The Team: Their are undeniable factors that will have BB choosing between two QBs here at the end of the 3rd. If BB takes the risk he could snag Lauletta here. But he was MVP of the Senior Bowl, and that might squeeze him into the 2nd. The good news is that if Lauletta is not here at 95, Riley Ferguson will be. If you study the Draft long enough you see how much luck plays into Draft picks. 

BB got lucky twice with Shrine Game QBs. Ferguson was the best at the Shrine. I wrote it over and over. If I'm BB I'm taking Ferguson here. But Lauletta is a Lacrosse and Navy Brat, just like Bill. He was also MVP of the Senior Bowl, which is much more impressive than the Shrine. I've broken down the Tape, and now it is time to see which QB BB snags, and where. 

Literally! The future of the Franchise depends on it. 

The Player: 4/22 Kyle Lauletta: Finding A QB: Part I.

The Reason: The reason I compared him to Garoppolo is because he did at the Senior Bowl this year what Garoppolo did at the Shrine game four years ago. That's it. I never saw either play a snap in college. After the shrine I watched tape of both. Both Tapes I found pretty much useless. Garoppolo played in a wacky spread system, but he called all the plays. Cerebrally he was the most interest prospect in that Draft.
Lauletta played at a lower level, so his tape is tough as well. But he played well on 3rd down, which is one of the first test for me. He showed he could take a hit and complete the next pass. But when he stepped up a few levels. He was the best player at the Senior Bowl. The way Garoppolo stepped up at the Shrine, Under all that immense pressure, and be the best QB down there. It was amazing.
He also has similar size. In fact, it may be exact. Garoppolo was listed at 6-3, 222 at the Shrine, and 6-2 4/8" 226 at the Combine. Lauletta was listed at 6-2 5/8", 222-pounds at the Combine. he showed a similar arm, similar athleticism, and a similar great job throwing on the move at the Senior Bowl. I have only broken down to games of his, and was a similar player, on a small school level, as Garoppolo. 
He grasps all the concepts at the Combine. He turned his back to the defense, and ran NFL play action in college. It sounds simple, but it takes years for spread QBs to learn how to do it. He throws a nice deep ball to let his WR run under it, like Garoppolo. Terrific accuracy, he throws it consistently on the opposite shoulder as the DB.
