he plays DT now, but I dont think he translates at DT well in the pros. he lined up at DE ALOT against TCU too
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!
All-Rookie 1st team honors (list generated by me and a few other fans from different teams):
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.
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.
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.
