    He could play either depending on the scheme. He's not a pass rush specialist DE in the first place. He was the body as physical tools to be a 3-4 DE and would just need limited amounts of coaching. Small project, but not at all a hard one. Teaching a guy to do something is a lot easier than telling him to do something he can't.

    • im guessing me and you have completely different opinions on watt and his fit. but thats all good though, should def be something to watch down the stretch. he has all the makings of a patriot, minus the fit in my personal opinion. we shall see!

      Thanks to BoneKrusher for this amazing sig!

      Go Gators/Pats/Celts/Red Sox!

      • All-Rookie 1st team honors (list generated by me and a few other fans from different teams):
        Rob Gronkowski
        Devin McCourty
        Zoltan Mesko

        2nd Team:
        Brandon Spikes
        Aaron Hernandez

        The team used 1 QB, 1 RB, 2 WRs, 1 TE, 1 utility (either a RB,WR, or TE), 5 OL (2 OTs, 3 OG/C), 2 DE (1 34 OLB allowed), 2 DTs (34 DEs as well, one had to be a DT/NT though), 3 LBs (1 OLB, 1 ILB, 1 either), 2 CBs, 2 safeties.

        So basically 5 of our picks are among the 4 best in their draft class. Pretty awesome year this was.

        edit: Does anyone think I did Cunningham a dis-service by not getting him into the the top 4 DE/OLB from this class?

        • I wouldn't say so. Cunningham will be a good one for us, but this year he really just showed flashes and gave us a lot to be excited about. He really didn't produce that much, he started and looked very good but the best is yet to come from him.

          • Jermaine Cunningham had stretches where he was invisible and had his playing time reduced by Eric Moore. Promising moments, but not a banner rookie season for him.

              Does Watt have any resemblance to anyone on our line? Does he resemble both Warrens, Deaderick, Brace, Love?

              We love our DLine HUGE. Watt does not fit whatsoever, unless for some reason u think he fits standing up, but i dont think thatd work.

              End of Rant. haha
              I think if you like Aaron Smith of Pittsburgh (super bowl and pro bowl player) you'll love Watt. Similar player with i think better hands and speed.

                I think Eric Moore got a lot more playing time because Cunningham has been dealing with an injury.

                  ...which did affect his level of play, yeah. But Moore outplayed him as a pure pass rusher. Cunningham could get into the backfield pretty easily, but had trouble finishing.

                    Aaron Smith is second only to Seymour as the best 5 tech of recent memory. I think you're being too generous with that comparison.

                    • Boston Globe is reporting that Pats have "suspended" Brandon Deaderick for an undisclosed period or reason. WTF we already have a rag tag D-line as is. Anyone have a clue as to what he did? It doesn't appear to be a league thing.

                      • Wow. The timing on that one is just...strange.

                        • Ughh...with Brace on IR that hurts. Wright is coming back but we are going to need G. Warren, Pryor, Cohen, and Love to step up. It really has been Wilfork surrounded by a revolving door this season, and our play is a testament to how amazing Vince has been this year. Wright and Spikes coming back will be huge, but we are scary thin up front.

                          • We'll likely never hear about what actually happened either. Just "oh team policy blah blah". I can't see BB doing that unless it was absolutely something terrible or he was going to be slammed for the NFL on something and they preferred to deal with it internally.

                            Mike Reiss also said that he's not sure why the move went down/what it actually means. Could be some roster type stuff....but what?

                            • Has Wright been spotted anywhere in the past month? All the cloak and dagger stuff with player moves and health updates is a little frustrating. I get the whole don't give the opposition any info deal but, come on.

                              • Nope. Wright hasn't played in awhile 6 games now. He HAS to come back now though...
