NFL Draft: Survey Says...

Bleacher ReportSenior Analyst IMarch 25, 2008
It's time to play the Feud! The good people over at have an excellent database of all the mock drafts happening. They have compiled a list of who the pundits, included, think the Patriots will be drafting this spring.
Here are the results:
Leodis McKelvin, CB, Troy ------------------------------- 42 votes
Mike Jenkins , CB, South Florida ------------------------- 21 votes
Vernon Gholston, OLB, Ohio State ----------------------- 19 votes
Keith Rivers, LB, USC ----------------------------------- 11 votes
Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, CB, Tennessee State ----- 11 votes
It's not surprising to see two corners at top and another one at number five, although I am still unconvinced that any of these defensive backs warrant a Top-10 pick.
My hunch is that Bill Belichick and Scott Pioli feel the same way and will either take Gholston, Dorsey, Ellis, or trade down and target one of the CB's on this list.
There are also some great options for corner help that could be available in the second round, and for both of our third round picks, including Patrick Lee, Charles Godfrey and Justin King.
Antoine Cason and Brandon Flowers may still be available in round two, but we would probaly have to trade up from #62 to get them.
