I think the pass rush around Jones needs to improve though and an explosive edge rusher would help IMO. Sure, Jones can be the right end for us, but I think we'd be even better if he could move over to the left side or even kick inside on the nickel, so long as he was being pushed there by a legit pass rush specialist. And it would help us better take advantage of a weak spot on the opposing OL by moving Jones around if we had an edge rusher that could fill the void left by Jones moving off that spot.
Yeah I remember Oher getting away with a bunch of holds in that game.
Anyways, for those of you that have got some time on your hands for the next few days there are some pretty good bowl games on. West Virginia is on right now and Tavon Austin is a guy that the Pats may be after.
Wheaton wasn't all in all impressive today, but one of my favorites coming out of this draft Alex Okafor was absolutely awesome. Probably just moved into late 1st round/early 2nd in most mocks.
Oh yeah Vaz's play definitely didn't help Wheaton tonight. Probably not a fair assessment by me so I'll probably have to watch the Senior Bowl to get a better look of him.
I'm still in awe from Okafor's performance tonight.
I wonder if Belichick is going to be making some moves in the '13 draft to try and secure a 2014 1st round pick from a team to try to be in a position to get SC's Jadeveon Clowney.
I watch Florida every week so thats mostly who i know alot about and somewhat limited for everyone else.
Shariff Floyd is someone who would be awesome to put next to Wilfork. Great against the run. Has some work to become a consistent inside pass rusher but could become one.
Matt Elam is a hard hitting saftey had 76 tackles and 4 Ints this season. I'd love to see him in the New England secondary.
I like Elam. Only problem is that he might go too high for us and I think BB might be content with McCourty and Gregory at safety for next year.
As for Floyd, I'd rather get a guy like Kawaan Short at DT, someone who can bring consistent pressure up the middle.
IMO, we should re-sign Talib and Welker, taking guys like Xavier Rhodes and Tavon Austin out of the equation.
And for the trade for Clowney pick idea, it won't happen because you can't predict who will be the worst team next year. Although I would kill to get Clowney...
I love what i saw from Alabama Running back Eddie Lacy & QB A. J. McCarron tonight.
