Miller thinks that Vinny Curry would be a good match for the Patriots at this spot. While I don't necessarily disagree with him, I don't think that Curry is the guy that the Pats should get here.
This year's draft is deep with pass-rushing defensive ends. Furthermore, while "tweener" guys like Curry can bring high return, they also come with great risk.
Curry overwhelmed at times in college, but the NFL is a completely different animal. Although he has quickness, his technique is somewhat questionable.
Oftentimes, he has a tendency to stand himself upright, which allows lineman to get him off balance, thereby negating his quickness.
If that happens, he becomes a one-trick pony that doesn't have a very effective trick. If he tries to beef up, he will probably lose a step, making him useless.
A better pick here would be center Peter Konz from Wisconsin. Interior lineman are less risky picks in the higher rounds and Konz appears to be a can't-miss. Konz has the versatility to play guard, so the Pats could move him there if they re-sign Dan Koppen.
As Brady nears the end of his career, the Pats will need a center to grow with either Ryan Mallett or whoever is Brady's replacement. Konz is the perfect guy for that role.
