Welcome aboard. I think it has been a lot harder to find/keep good secondary help so if Wes leaves Talib must stay. He brought so much continuity to the secondary and allowed Dennard and McCourty to gain confidence in their positions and assignments. A DT/DE that can rush the passer will totally improve the D. I also think that with a bit more time Tavon Wilson can turn into a real good Safety. WR is a need whether Wes is back or not imo.

With Wes back, I don't think much emphasis will be put into getting an impact WR. We don't run 2TE/3WR sets much.

I think if anything, can we see more 2 TE/2RB/1 WR sets more?

Have Vereen and Ridley in the backfield at the same time.

I hope we see more 3TE sets with the likes of Ballard coming in off that injury after we stole him right from under Coughlin's nose. I would love to draft somebody in rds 1-3 bpa to either bring interior pass rush or somebody to stretch the field as a stud WR.

I know there's been talk about needing a safety and all honesty I kind of have forgotten about Wilson. But I think part of the reason is if Wilson couldn't beat out Gregory how good can he be. I'm sure some will point out that Gregory had a good game once and made some plays here and there but I was never really impressed. With that said, what about Robert Lester? How would he fit into our needs catagory?

Beautifully. Any Alabama player would be great. Roll Tide. Fills a need in the 2/3 round and is a very good Safety. Saban knows how to coach em up

On of the reasons I asked about Lester is I talked to him yesterday at seior bowl practice and he complemented my Patriots hat I said he would look good in a Patriots uniform and he said that would be fine with him. He did add that he would be happy with anyone that gave him a chance though.

You're at Senior Bowl practices? Notice Patriots scouts talking to any specific players?

I heard that they had an interview with Fluker before he left...

Yeah man that is awesome that you are at the Senior Bowl practices. Keep us informed up in here. Fluker would be so legit in the 2nd at some point. If Vollmer left I would want a monster like Fluker.

Sounds about right to me. The only safety that strikes me as anything close to a surefire starter is Vaccaro, and there's no guarantee he'll be there at 29.

Yeah Vaccaro strikes me as the best fit, can man both spots and does a bit of everything well.

You guys are all drunk, completely drunk. Laughing

Dhunt, they don't strike you as sure fire starters? Of course not, how many "sure fire" guys are there in a draft class, 15-20 maybe? And safeties? Rarely any, sometimes 1 or 2.

All those kids are 2nd/3rd round talents that have legitimate shots at being impact players in this league. Not happening though, we have Tavon Wilson and Steve Gregory! Crying or Very sad Laughing
