Who are your top five players up for the NFL Draft this year that you would be satisfied with the Patriots selecting? I thought this would be a fun thread to sort of dream up those scenarios that seem unlikely but you never know for sure if it wouldn't happen, no matter unrealistic it would be to obtain the players you listed.

1. Justin Hunter
2. Eric Reid
3. Jon Cooper
4. John Jenkins
5. Datone Jones

HM: Xavier Rhodes, Marcus Davis, Dwayne Gratz, John Hankins, Sylvester Williams, Jon Bostic, Desmond Trufant, "Tank", Darius Slay, Rodney Smith

Sheldon Richardson
Ezekiel Ansah
Dion Jordan
Star Lotulelei (if his medicals check out)

Don't really have a #5... not a lot of exciting prospects at the top of the draft. Warmack, Cooper, or Johnson I suppose.

1. Justin Hunter
2. Kenny Vaccaro
3. Star Lotuleirorjwofsjffreilei
4. Tavon Austin (come at me)
5. Stedman Bailey

I think we have a pretty realistic shot at Vaccaro, Star and Austin at this point as well.

1. Star Lotulelei (assuming you are comfortable with his health)
2. Ezekiel Ansah
3. Sharrif Floyd
4. Luke Joeckel (would be higher, but on this team he is a RT)
5. Dee Milliner


And the patriots have no chance to select any of those players under almost any scenario.

I'll admit this changes quite a lot - but currently:

Top five players in the draft:

1. Jarvis Jones
2. Eric Fisher
3. Chance Warmack
4. Lane Johnson
5. Dee Milliner

Top five potentially in our picking range:

1. DeAndre Hopkins
2. Johnthan Banks
3. Sylvester Williams
4. Datone Jones
5. Jonathan Cyprien

As someone who doesn't follow college football or players well enough to know anyone outside of the general mock draft names, what's the concern with Star Lotulelei's health?

Issue with his heart valve.

1. Shariff Floyd - He would be perfect next to Wilfork in a 4 man front and could work the end when he move to a 3 man front.

2. Xavier Rhodes - He has a similar game to those two over in Seatle and I think it would bring some good to this secondary.

3. Jonathan Cyprien - I love his potential as in the box safety with coverage ability. He has the perfect Patriot attitude, do your job no matter what, and go full speed all the time.

4. DeAndre Hopkins - I liken him to a raw version of Larry Fitzgerald. He has a similar skillset but needs to learn more routes and refine them. He might sit in Brady's dog house until he learns, but he has the mindset to bury his head in the playbook and work until he earns it.

5. DJ Swearinger - I just love his style and swagger. I loved Rodney Harrison, favorite all time Patriot. I'd love to have another one.


Realistically (all rounds worht):
1. Jamar Taylor
2. Kayvon Webster
3. Da'Rick Rogers
4. Khaseem Greene
5. Josh Boyce

To be more in-depth, he had a checkup before the NFL Combine, and they found it. So he didn't get to participate for the most part.

I don't get the Sharrif Floyd love at all.

What's not to get? His only weakness is against the run and he creates enough penetration to make that an after thought.

I don't see a top 10 pick, much less 3rd overall like some are projecting.

He looks limited to me as a prospect. Where's the room for growth? He looks maxed out physically, with excellent hands and pad level for a college player, so its not like he's going to develop much. He's a good athlete, but his length is underwhelmng, and it already shows in college imo, when he struggles to get his hands on his man he's ineffective. He looks like an NFL caliber player but not a real difference maker to me. If he's there at 29? I'd take him in a heartbeat. But top 5, no way. Especially with the far superior Richardson still on the board.

completely on board with you, though I have to say purely if used as a 34 end, I think shariff Floyd would make a killing and probably improve as a two gapper. Might turn out to have a career path comparable to Brett keisel or Ty Warren.
