      This year, of course, and last year, IIRC, the NFL institutionalized the death of the Golf In The Morning And Draft Starting At Noon, which for some of us was a very fun indeed ritual.  Now, it is only a matter of time before the envelopes containing the names of the first round picks are presented along with decolletage and witty teleprompter banter, with such pairings as Jamie Foxx and Cameron Diaz, or Al Pacino and Lawrence Taylor (early Vegas action is on LY paying Pacino to wear the decolletage).

      Undrafted Free Agents
      Once the new CBA is agreed to and signed there will be a flurry of Free Agent
      signings.  Not only the Un-restricted and Restricted Free Agent veteran players,
      but also the college players that went Un- Drafted.    This posting will
      concentrate on those players that were not selected in this past April’s draft
      that I think would make excellent signing by the Patriots.
      Remember that Bill Belechick has kept an Un-Drafted Free Agent on his Opening
      Day Roster each year, dating back to the signing of Adam Vinatieri. 

       
      Offense
       
      RB Mario Fannin Auburn 5’10 230 4.37 – I cannot believe Fannin was not drafted. 
      He reminds me of Patrick Pass, solid build, big and fast with excellent
      receiving skills.  More of a fullback type that can run between the tackles but
      also his blocking is near the level of NFL caliber FB.  Had pass receiving
      streak of 22 games broken this past year.
      C Tim Barnes Missouri 6’4” 300 5.17 Three year starter of 38 consecutive games. 
      Stocky blocker who centered for 1st round QB selection Blaine Gabbert.  Help
      lead Mizzou to 10-2 record and a share of Big 12 championship.    First team all
      Big-12, Rimmington Award watch list
      OG Zach Hurd UConn 6’ 7” 316 5.28  Massive OG (may be too big to play there in
      NFL).  Great run blocker who helped set up 4 individual 1000 yrd seasons for
      Dustin Brown (2083 yards led nation in 2008) and Jordan Todman.
      OT David Mims Virginia Union 6’8”330 5.32 Lost 40 lbs prior to his Pro Day
      workout.  Dominated D2 for four years.  Lacks technique and got away with it vs
      lower level completion.  Raw and slow out of his stance.  Has the size / speed
      to play RT in NFL.  Project for Dante Scarnecchia???
      OT Willie Smith Eastern Carolina 6’ 5” 310 5.28  Started last 27 games of his
      career helping E Carolina set all sorts of new offensive records.  Has good
      lateral quickness to pull and trap.  Might be considered at OG.
      OT Rich Lapham Boston College 6’ 8”  Lapham started 33 consecutive games until a
      knee injury felled him this year.  He is a classic BC lineman.  He may lack the
      footspeed to play RT against speed rushers and may need to move inside to OG. 
      He is a mauler who helped BC lead the ACC in rushing and Montel Harris to over
      3,000 yds in his three years as a starter.  Don’t forget about this kid, he is
      going to make some NFL team.
      WR Terrance Tolliver LSU 6’4” 212 4.52 -  25 straight starts (didn’t start 1st
      game of 2009 because the play called for two TE set). 41 and 47 catches the last
      two years and had 5 for 112 yds and 2 TD’s in Cotton Bowl MVP performance. 

      WR Dane Sanzenbacher Ohio St 5’ 11” 182 4.56  Possession receiver that catches
      everything thrown to him.  He is always in the right place and runs precise
      routes.  He was team captain, MVP and Bo Rein Most Inspirational Player award
      winner at Ohio St.  First time the double award was given in 25 years. 
      Sanzenbacher was a late addition to the Senior Bowl and impressed scouts
      immediately.  He had a great week and finished with a strong game, despite the
      spotty play of the QBs.
      WR Jeff Maehl Oregon  6’1” 190 4.56  Led Pac 10 in TD receptions (10) and had 12
      TDs and 77 reception in his senior season.  He had 24 for career and 178 which
      tied the career marks at Oregon.   Tall and slender, but a smooth route runner. 
      Worth the look in camp.
