Round Three

DE. Oklahoma. Geneo Grissom. B. player. 47. The more I see of Grissom, and the more I hear about him from Bill Belichick and other coaches, the more I am loving this pick. It was obvious throughout this offseason that the Patriots wanted to put together an electrifying front seven, and Grissom only adds to that group. He is an athletic pass rusher off the edge, but he is also extremely versatile, as he will likely initially serve as an off-the-line linebacker in this defense. Bill Belichick loves versatile athletes, as they allow him to do a lot of different things schematically, and over the next few years, Grissom is going to emerge as a monster.
