Athletic DT with a high motor. Based on that description it tells you he would like Dan Williams over Terrance Cody. Its not rocket science.
Steely Mc Smash I have a question for you. Even though you nor I work for The PATS we could both tell what Bill B wants out of the draft? We being from New England know Bill B love 2nd round picks and getting VALUE! Thats the biggest complaint up in this area and everyone knows it. So if I suggested that Bill B might trade wilfork to KC it would be a possibility. WHy? Because Bill B would want their 2 second round picks(not their 1st) giving him a total of 5 for the draft. That doesnt make me an advisor it makes me a fan who's following the teams history,Listening to the local stations that talk about the team and has Bill B on every week. Yes, its a guess but it's an educated guess. Thanks PS What you wrote was good and funny. Go STEELERS
Nice to meet you Henderson, glad you enjoyed my comments.

I don't mean any disrespect to your anonymity. Just strikes me as funny that he's quoting bleacher report posters in the type of context one would use for expert opinion, but he really just means that you said something well and he agrees with you.

I'm well aware of the big snack's time running laps on the lower field at St. Vincent. That being said I wouldn't purport to KNOW that Tomlin will never take a guy who ever had a conditioning problem. There's a lot of time between now and draft day. It will be interesting to see in what shape Cody shows up to the combine and his Pro day.

Also the team will have first hand information on the guy to assess whether his head is screwed on straight and he can discipline himself. He apparently dropped 60 pounds during his College career so I would assess his weight as more of a risk and not neccesarily a deal breaker. As a second round pick, he might be a compelling value provided the team is happy with their first hand info.

Regarding New England, I am most emphatically from Pittsburgh. I have lived here for 8 years or so.

I don't honestly know that I've ever heard anyone analyze the pats draft policy in any detail. What I will say is that I think they've done a good job of banking draft value by trading for picks in subsequent drafts. They opperate in bold strokes personnel-wise which is a boom or bust method as I see the results. They really aren't built by the draft as much as folks would have you believe. They had a good run there and some players took a FA discount to take a shot at getting a ring.

Isn't Wilfork a FA? If so there's nothing to trade there so that's not a possibility.

Note that the guy who wrote the first one is a "senior writer" over there.

wouldn't it be great if we could get Ed Bouchette to come over here and bitch us out? I'd consider subscibing to insider if he committed to one flaming rant a month.

Isnt it great that bloggers get all high and mighty over themselves when they really dont know what is going on?? I wonder if he knows that the Patriots drafted NT Nyron Pryor from Kentucky last year and he will probably be the replacement??
