Patriots CSR Mock Draft Results

The CSR Mock Draft was held today, an thank you everyone, it was great fun. I've noticed that a few have posted their mock draft results, so I thought I'd post mine as well. I used most of the same players I've kept my eye on while thinking of the Panthers, so they might be of more interest because of that.

I represented the New England Patriots, who started out with 6 draft picks (27th, 31st, 48th, 62nd, 93rd, and 126th), but I somehow managed to trade those 6 picks into 14. So here's a list of the trades I made.

1. I traded the Patriots 2 1st round picks (#27 & #31) to the Bears for their #19 & #50 picks, so that I could be sure of getting one of the top pass rushers, hopeful it would be Mercilus.

2. I then got very lucky, trading the #50 which I just acquired from the Bears to the Jaguars, for their #67, #142, #176, #178, and #228 picks. I know that seems like a lot, but by the trade value chart my #50 pick was worth just a little over 4 points more than his 5 total picks. The trade was a perfect match, he had little faith in the draft's depth, so he wanted to trade his later round picks to move up higher, and draft impact players, while I wanted to add picks near the end of the draft, because I had no picks after the 4th round.

3. My next trade was far more simple, I traded the Patriots #93 pick for the #105, and #217 picks. It was a panic move on my part, because Friday night ended with the 95th pick, and time was short, I probably should have gotten more. I actually worried about it that night, worried that the player I wanted at #93, might be gone at #105, but I got lucky.

4. For my last trade this morning, I traded WR Chad Ochocinco to the Vikings, for ther #188 pick. Even though I hadn't drafted a WR yet (missing out on Alshon Jeffery), I felt the WR depth was so good that I would be able to dump his salary, and get a good WR to replace him.

Patriots Mock Draft Picks:

19. DE/OLB Whitney Mercilus (6-3 5/8, 261, 33 7/8 inch arms, and 9 1/4 inch hands) of Illinois, who ran an "official" Combine 4.68-40, "unofficially" a 4.63-40, with a 1.56-10, a Pro Day 7.03 3-cone, and a Pro Day 4.44-20 yard shuttle. He also had 27 bench reps, with a 32 inch vertical, and a 9-10 broad jump. In 2011, he had 16 sacks, 22.5 TFL's, 9 forced fumbles, and 57 tackles.

48. OLB Bruce Irvin (6-3, 245, 33 3/8 inch arms, and 9 5/8 inch hands) of West Virginia, ran an "official Combine 4.50-40, "unofficially" a 4.41-40, with a 6.70 3-cone, and a 4.03-20 yard shuttle, with 23 bench reps, a 33.5 inch vertical, and a 10-3 broad jump. He only played 2 seasons at West Virginia, with 8.5 sacks (14 sacks in 2010), 15 TFL's, 40 tackles, and 3 forced fumbles in 2011. He's a great pass rusher, with the great speed to play OLB in either a 4-3 or 3-4 defense in time, he's raw and need time to learn the position.

62. OG Brandon Brooks (6-5, 346, 32 5/8 inch arms) of Miami (Ohio), was the star of the Pro Days, running a 4.98-40, 1.71-10, a 7.42 3-cone, and a 4.52-20 yard shuttle (faster than any OL at the Combine), with 36 bench reps, a 32 inch vertical, a 8-9 broad jump, and he looked great in the drills.>/p>

67. CB Brandon Boykin (5-9 1/2, 182, 31 1/2 inch arms, and 9 3/8 inch hands) of Georiga, broke his leg in his college all-star game, and is still recovering, but yet he was still able to run a 4.45-40, 6.91 3-cone, a 4.61-20 yard shuttle, and put up 24 bench reps around a week ago. He had 3 ints, 9 passes defended, 11 TFL's, and 55 tackles in 2011, with some projected him as a 1st round pick.

105. S/CB Brandon Hardin (6-2 5/8, 217, 31 3/4 inch arms, and 9 1/4 inch hands) of Oregan St., had a great Pro Day, running a 4.36-40, a 6.60 3-cone, and a 4.03-20 yard shuttle, with 24 bench reps, a 35.5 inch vertical, and a 10-4 broad jump. He missed ll of the 2011 season with a shoulder injury, but is currently projected as a late 3rd or early 4th round pick.

126. 4-3 DT/3-4 DE Jaye Howard (6-3, 301, 33 inch arms, 9 7/8 inch hands) of Florida, ran an "official" Combine 4.82-40, "unofficially" a 4.75-40, 1.72-10, 7.32 3-cone, and a 4.47-20 yard shuttle, with 24 bench reps, a 27.5 inch vertical, and a 8-10 broad jump. In 2011, he had 5.5 sacks, 10 TFL's, and 65 tackles. He should be a perfect 3-4 DE, with better speed than most 4-3 DE's, let alone DT's.

142. OT Donald Stephenson (6-5 1/2, 312, 34 7/8 inch arms, and 9 7/8 inch hands) of Oklahoma, ran the fastest "official" 40 time of any OL at the Combine with a 4.94, a 7.52 3-cone, and a 4.78-20 yard shuttle, with 19 bench reps, a 35.5 inch vertical, and a 9-2 broad jump. I can't remember which expert wrote it this week, but he wrote that Stephenson might become only the 2nd NFL LT in the draft.

176. WR DeVier Posey (6-1 5/8, 211, 31 5/8 inch arms, and 9 5/8 inch hands) of Ohio St, ran an "official" Combine 4.50-40, "unofficially" a 4.37-40, 1.45-10, a 7.03 3-cone, and a 4.15-20 yard shuttle, with 14 bench reps, a 36.5 inch vertical, and a 10-3 broad jump. He was suspended for all but 3 games in 2011 (only 12 catches), but he had 53 catches (60 in 2009), for a 16.0 yard average, with 7 TD's, in 2010.

178. 4-3 DT/3-4 DE Mike Daniels (6-0 1/2, 291, 32 1/2 inch arms, and 9 5/8 inch hands) of Iowa, has been injured, and unable to workout yet, but ran a 4.86-40 last year. He's another good pass rusher for the Patriots.

184. OLB Sammy Brown (6-1 7/8, 242, 33 7/8 inch arms, and 9 1/2 inch hands) of Houston, had a very good Pro Day wookout, running a 4.64-40, a 7.13 3-cone, and a 4.47-20 yard shuttle, with 20 bench reps, a 37 inch vertical, and a 10-3 broad jump. In 2011, he lead the nation with 30 TFL's, and had 14 sacks.

188. RB Michael Smith (5-8 5/8, 207, 29 3/8 inch arms, and 9 1/2 inch hands) of Utah St. had a great Pro Day, running a 4.32-40, a 1.48-10, a 7.15 3-cone, and a 4.35-20 yard shuttle, with 23 bench reps, a 40.5 inch vertical, and a 10-60 broad jump. He was stuck behind RB Robert Turbin, one of the top RB's in this draft, so he only had 116 career carries, for 820 yards, 7.0 YPC (7.6 YPC in 2011), with 9 TD's, but ran for 157 yards in his bowl game, and 124 yards in his all-star game, with an 80 yard TD.

217. WR Chris Owusu (6-0 1/8, 196, 31 3/4 inch arms, and 8 1/2 inch hands) of Stanford, ran an "official" Combine 4.36-40 (tied for the fastest WR 40 time at the Combine), "unofficially" a 4.31-40, with a 6.85 3-cone, and a 4.11-20 yard shuttle, with 19 bench reps, a 40.5 inch vertical, and a 10-9 broad jump. He had 35 catches, for a 10.7 yard average, with 2 TD's, in 2011, but only played in 10 games, due to concussions (he's had at least 3, whichcaused him to drop to the 7th round). I was very lucky to get him (if he stays healthy), and I was sure the Colts would pick him in the 7th round, for Luck.

220. FS/CB Neiko Thorpe (6-1 1/4, 198, 31 3/4 inch arms, and 10 1/8 inch hands) of Auburn, ran a 4.39-40, a 1.55-10, 7.13 3-cone, and a 4.01-20 yard shuttle, with 4 bench reps, a 38 inch vertical, and an 11-5 broad jump. He played his first 3 seasons at CB, and 2011 at FS.

228. CB Derrius Brooks (5-9 1/2, 192, 33 3/4 inch arms, and 9 1/4 inch hands) of Western Kentucky, ran a 4.29-40, a 1.46-10, a 6.61 3-cone, and a 4.17-20 yard shuttle, with 13 bench reps, a 38 inch vertical, and a 10-5 broad jump. I really don't know much about him but his Pro Day numbers, which are great.

UDFA's (first allowed 5, but then reduced to 3, so I'll post my top 5, but only the top 3 count):

FS/CB Jordan Bademosi (6-0 3/4, 197, 32 1/2 inch arms, and 9 1/4 inch hands) of Stanford, ran a 4.35-40, a 6.96 3-cone, and a 4.10-20 yard shuttle, with 16 bench reps, a 40 inch vertical, and a 10-5 broad jump.

WR Michael Calvin (6-2 1/2, 215, 32 3/4 inch arms, and 9 1/2 inch hands) of Cal, ran a 4.32-40, a slow 1.62-10, 6.70 3-cone, and a 4.09-20 yard shuttle, with 16 bench reps, a 40.5 inch vertical, and an 11-1 broad jump. He only caught 20 career passes at Cal, but he was stuck behind Marvin Jones (an early round pick in this draft), and a likely top 10 pick in next years draft.

WR/CB Deonte Thompson (5-11 3/4, 200, 32 1/2 inch arms, and 8 3/8 inch hands) of Florida, ran 40 times of 4.23, 4.27, 4.31, 4.32, and 4.33 at his Pro Day, with a 6.96 3-cone, and a 4.40-20 yard shuttle, with 20 bench reps, a 36.5 inch vertical, and a 10-5 broad jump. Though he doesn't have verry good hands, he caught 101 career passes.

WR/TE Derek Carrier (6-3 3/8, 238) of Belot College, ran a Pro Day 4.50-40, a 1.57-10, a 6.70 3-cone, and a 4.09-20 yard shuttle, with 15 bench reps, a 38 inch vertical, and a 10-2 broad jump. He might be a good backup H-Back for Hernandez.

OT/OG Nick Mondek (6-5 3/4, 304, 33 3/8 inch arms, and 9 1/4 inch arms) of Purdue, ran a Pro Day 4.84-40, a fantastic 1.59-10, a 7.30 3-cone, and a 4.55-20 yard shuttle, with 30 bench reps, a 31 inch vertical, and a 8-9 broad jump. He's super fast for an OL, and maybe he can also play Center.
