2009 NFL Mid-Offseason Mock Draft

Hey New England fans, my name is Jake and I am one of the writers for BattleRedBlog, the SB Nation site devoted to the Houston Texans.  I’m sure I’m not the first blogger from another team to visit your site and post something arbitrary because it happens regularly at BRB.  Sometimes it is relevant to either the Texans or the NFL at large and worth reading, and other times it can be the opposite. 

I just completed a Mid-offseason Mock Draft, and wanted to share who I selected for your team with you.  I hope this isn’t a waste of your time and welcome feedback whether it is negative or positive.  Below is the excerpt of who I thought the Patriots would take and why, as well as possible alternatives.  If you would like to view the entire Mock Draft to see how I got to your pick, simply follow the link above in the beginning of this paragraph. 

23.  New England Patriots:  Connor Barwin/OLB-TE/Cincinnati (Previous Pick:  Larry English) – Hmm.  An extremely athletic collegiate DE who will probably play OLB in a 3-4 scheme that can also play some TE.  Sound like anyone you know?  *cough*MikeVrabel*cough*.  This is earlier than most people assume Barwin will be taken, but Belichick doesn’t necessarily follow the status quo and draft by the typical draft ratings.  Larry English is still a possibility, but Barwin has the attitude to fit in with the Patriots.  Then again, Bill can be unpredictable to say the least.

Thanks for your time, good luck in the Draft.
