Speculation is running rampant that the New England Patriots are desperately after LSU's Tyson Jackson.

They are seeking a complement, if not a replacement, for Richard Seymour, whose contract runs out after the season.

Jackson has been one of the least talked about players, and probably for good reason. So many teams were so high on him, no one wanted to tip their hand.

Some mock drafts have him going as high as the fourth spot to the Seahawks.

Make no mistake, Belichick will scramble, but look for him to work a deal with the 49ers at No. 10. Call it a payback for coughing up the seventh overall selection last year.
