    Mock drafting and player evaluation are two different things. The former involves guessing and projecting and the latter involves knowing and projecting. Anyone can make a mock. Given how many trades are executed and how many retarded general managers are out there like Matt Millen, it is impossible to be accurate.

    Mayo will be a very nice fit with the Patriots but you don't take a 3-4 ILB so early unless they are god-like as Patrick Willis was and Mayo is not Patrick Willis. Belichick talking about Mayo's versatility... I do not see Mayo's "versatility" in a 3-4 scheme. He is no edge rusher. He is a marginal blitzer. He is strictly an ILB in the 3-4. Regardless, the Patriots love drafting the best available athlete who fits a need and who has a passion for the game and they whip them up into great system players. Terrence Wheatley was a brilliant selection in the 2nd round. Ultimately Mayo will have great protection in the Patriots scheme playing behind Wilfork and Seymour and company. Great pick by New England.

    I thought Wheatley was a reach. He isnt very big , has a permantly fused wrist so he cant have great good hands and he has serious durability issues.

    Wheatley's college resume speaks for itself. He is outstanding in coverage... a total glue guy. He was a big reason why Colorado stymied Chase Daniel and the Mizzou passing attack. If the Pats drafted him I will assume he cleared medically. His hands are fine to make the interception and he isn't a poor tackler like a lot have made him out to be... he is an adequate tackler. Anyway he is a typical Pats guy... should be very productive in their system.

    When we play them i hope we throw at him all day with VJ and Naanee and even Floyd( if he makes the team) being lined up against his short *** :lol:

    Only saw one Colorado game and Nobody projected him as a 2nd rounder. Mostly 4th and 5th

    I put him on my "all-sleeper" list so I did not project him as a 2nd rounder either but at the same time he put up the triangle numbers that justify such an early selection combined with his on-field productivity which really cannot be questioned. The Patriots needed a CB. He was the best option at that spot, otherwise you would be looking at a Justin King, Orlando Scandrick, Tyvon Branch, etc... none of whom produced at the collegiate level but are "ranked" highly simply because of the athletic testing numbers. Justin King got burned a lot, as did Scandrick. Branch is just unrefined and inconsistent and does not have anywhere near the natural balls skills that Wheatley does. Wheatley is a much more refined CB than any of those guys. I do like South Florida CB Trae Williams but he doesn't have the pure coverage ability and burst that Wheatley has although he is technically sound and has good ball skills.
