- ***** When I was in the chat room at Patsfans.com yesterday, a few guys kept
referring to an ILB named Jon Abbate (Wake Forest), as a possible late round
pick for the Pats. I see that he went into the UDFA pool. Can anybody who's
done some pre-draft research offer their opinion on this guy? Would he be a
good UDFA for the Pats to pursue?
***** Other ILB's listed, but not drafted on NFL.com's list are:
George Hall - Purdue
Zach Latimer - Okla
Matt Muncy - Ohio
Tony Taylor - Georgia
Any opinions or info on them?
***** Any other ILB's anybody likes?
***** Also a couple of Punters falling into UDFA that I'd like some opinion
Kody Bliss - Auburn
Brendan Carney - Syracuse
Adam Graessle - Pitt
***** And, of course, we still need to look at some more DB's (I think there
are almost always a couple of DB gems from small schools!)
Anthony Arline - Baylor
Travarous Bain - Hampton (small school!) He's 6' 182
Reggie Lewis - Florida (another Florida boy. BB's likely seen him)
Tim Mixon - Cal
Geoffrey Pope - Howard (another small school guy)
Kenny Scott - Ga Tech
Melvin Bullitt - Tex A&M (What a GREAT name for a SS! Hell, I bring him in
just for that!) :-)
Craig Dahl - N Dak St (small school alert)
Jessie Daniels - LSU (Another favorite BB source)
Ryan Glasper - BC (A local boy. Somebody must have an opinion on him.)
Antwan Stewart - Tenn
Waju 'Larry' Anam - BC (Must have been a good secondary up on the hill this
Willis Barringer - Michigan
David Lofton - Stanford (Good name out of Stanford! Related?)
Brandon Mitchell - Ohio St (Wasn't he highly rated?)
Marcus Paschal - Iowa
Brandon Sharp - Louisville
***** And finally, the glamour boys. Here are some "listed" RBs that are
still out there who appear to have the size to our "Mr Inside" candidates:
Alvin Banks - James Madison (5'11" 226)
Jackie Battle - Houston (6'2" 235) Gotta luv the name!
Ronnie McGill - N. Car (5'10" 222)
Tyrone Moss - Miami, Fla (5'9" 231) and he's from BB's favorite state!
Germaine Race - Pittsburgh St (5'10" 227)
Gary Russell - Minn (5'11" 217)
Darius Walker - ND (5'10" 212) One of Charlie's boys!
Danny Ware - Georgia (6' 225)
So, let's go, all you amateur draft guru's. Who should we bring in for a
look for these positions of need?
Dogs have masters ... Cats have staff!
