The fourth mock draft is finished, and I might say that this is my best work so far. The Patriots are desperate for one of two legitimate contributors, and they got at least three in Tuitt, Bucannon and Fiedorowicz. Johnson could be a nice addition, and help balance out the running game, and prevent one player from shouldering too much of the load. Duvernay-Tardif might take a year to adjust to the NFL, and becoming a guard, but I truly believe that’s a legit starter waiting inside of him. After that, depth is the name of the game, and that’s what the Patriots acquired in a pass rush specialist in Sam, Washington, and Hoskins. McCarron would most likely be groomed to be the future, and would be in good hands with Brady not only mentoring him, but also having the ability to just sit back and learn for about 2-3 years. Like I’ve said for a while, the Patriots could be a huge impact team in this draft, especially with it being so deep. Any thoughts on this fourth instalment into the mock draft series?
