After last year's performance by Corey Dillon and Co., I'd be happy if I were a Pats fan.

I look at the value of the pick - all the big noise is at LB in this draft so it seems to me that we have gotten a good deal with the second RB selected in the draft at pick 21.

I think we will get D in the 2nd, ILB Kai parham or D'Quell jackson (although as i type this jackson has gone early in the 2nd)

We do need a pass rusher to fill willie's boots and I cant see a serious replacement on the current roster.
Maybe Daryll Tapp late today or early tomorrow whoi fits the OLB/De tweener mould preferred by teams running the 3-4.

At the end of the day, im just a typical fan who gets excited by the sexy picks - I think this one was pretty hot.

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.

Dillon was hobbled most of the year - and the rest of the Rb;s followed him so he was pressed into action before he had a chance to recover.

Our O-Line was in the middle of a huge transition not helped by the loss of the starting centre, the starting LT and various other injuries to the other members of the line.

I think our O-Line will see a huge step up this year - Corey will run for 1200-1400 as long as he doesnt lose too many touches to Maroney.

exactly! Light and Koppen coming back with the work done by Mankins and Kazur have me pumped about the offense this year. It was the injuries to the OL that caused the dropoff, both in RB production, and some of the mistakes by Brady,due to his facing more pressure than usual. So i wasnt worried about RB. Im very happy with the Jackson pick as Givens needed to be replaced.

Dont forget - Givens was only a 7th round pick so Jackson is going to be 3.5 times better!
