Which Young player on the Pats do you think will be one of the top 5 at his postion in a few years.

I say Asante Samuel. Might be better than Law in a few years. Samuel is learning from Law and Harrison!

Yeah, he looks great
But look at Wilson, he is an ex corner, so he can cover
And he is learning from probly the most leathal feared hitter ever to be a safety
Deion Branch and David Givens also look to have some probowls in them aswell

Well, I don't consider D-Givens and D-Branch has "young studs" I meant like 1-2 year players. But guys just look at this:

CB: Asante Samuel
CB: 1st round pick
FS: Eugene Wilson
SS: Rodney Harrison

and in 3 years

CB: Samuel
CB: 1st round pick
FS: Wilson
SS: Dexter Reid

damn that look good!

I think Ben Watson has the potential to be a great reciving TE....so he'd be near the top of the list.

Another would be Vince Wilfork. He quietly had a pretty solid rookie season. He was 8th on the team in tackles with 42, he also had 2 sacks and 2 fumble recoveries and 3 passes deflected.

Arrow *He did all that often playing behind Keith Traylor.

I concur with that, and Traylor, if he stays with us, doesnt deseve to start becuase of Vilfork
And Watson can do some great things, D.G. as the blocker and 3rd down traget, and him as the prime reciver....sweeet

I think that Cedric Cobbs can be effective, but not as a RB. As a FULLBACK! He has good hands and decent speed and can block well. He could be like Larry Csonka, and give the Pats a Thunder/Lightning combo with either Dillon or who I think we will pick in the 3rd round in 2 years, Laurence Maroney of Minnesota.

Cedric Cobbs is an attrocious blocker.

Thats why he never saw the field.

He's got the skills, but he can't run routes as a pass catcher and can't pick up the blitz.

Well, I do disagree with that - Cobbs is an awesome runner. He was very impressive in early rookie camps. It's just that he was so raw as a blocker and receiver, that the staff couldnt put him on the field. Onceh e figures out those areas, he could be a steal. But the position just isnt about running the ball, so he's got to put in the work to get better. Im very high on his potential for the team. I just disagree with the FB comments and talk about his blocking.

at the end of day one i was like why did we draft watson instead of dansby

but BB proved me wrong when we ran a bunch of two tight end sets until watson got injured

he played TE, HB, and FB

pretty versatile

P.K. Sam will be a great receiver, he just came out a year too early not only for his draft round projection but also for his development. He would have benefitted greatly by playing in the pro style offense at FSU for one more year. I loved the guy in college, has alot of potential.

I agree with you guys on P.K and I agree that he came out to early. When I went to traning camp last year for the Pats I got to talk to P.K and is one of the nicest people on the team. I told him "Good Luck, man" And he said "Thanks, a lot man. I appreciate it a lot!" And then I asked him if he thought he was better than a 5th rounder and he said, "My agent and I thought I was a 2nd rounder or 3rd at the latest"
