Hello, and welcome to another edition of ‘The Patriot Way’, your number one source to Pats news and analysis from around the web.
NFL.com’s Bucky Brooks went back and analyzed the 2012 draft, and re-drafted the players as of right now. He had Pats defensive end Chandler Jones moved up to the 15th spot, and linebacker Dont’a Hightower staying put at number 25.
The Pats are one of many teams interested in selecting defensive tackle Dominique Easley, who is coming out of Florida. Assuming he is healthy, Easley would be a great pick for the Patriots. He has a ton of talent, but his health is a major issue.
Be sure to check out James Christensen’s seven round mock draft for New England. Christensen goes with a huge surprise in round one, as he has the Pats going with quarterback Teddy Bridgewater. Acquiring Tom Brady‘s future replacement would be great, but I think they have to go all in for Brady’s last couple of years. This team is a few pieces away from being elite, and I don’t think they should blow it on Bridgewater.
And finally, ESPN Boston’s Mike Reiss continues his ‘Beyond The First Round’ feature, with the quarterbacks.
