-- what are ready Sparage with another edition of on the clock brought you by Internet Explorer not fast is now beautiful. No the Patriots only seventeenth and 28 overall picks in the upcoming NFL draft. Helpless breakdown new England's draft plans the spring and -- -- -- the covers the team for the Boston Globe and -- the Patriots are loaded with draft picks including 21 -- number seventeen and 28. You think they'll package the picks and try to make a deal to move up or just keep what they've got an address some of their needs. Well it's a big joke especially here -- -- and even among Patriot fans but being. We moved Allen has and that trend the last couple of years you know famously a couple of years ago. Made straight out of spot they could've got in Clayton act easily trade out of -- they could've gotten Michael or. And they traded into the second round is partly they traded out of our -- out together so. People here I think apprehensive I think they're expecting that there will be some sort of move by you know the Patriots do have. -- -- and I could see that they have that in the past and able to a couple of spots. You know and that first ticket seventeen if it's getting to be around -- thirteenth fourteenth. And the -- guy that they want that they they think might get taken I have seen them move up in the taxi that it would Ty Warren. Several years to go to Wilcox and get a guy that they they really do want. So they they could and they certainly have there been any mission and they have things there that they could Mubarak is to get a guy is can they really want them. Actually the Patriots finished fourteen into last season best record in the league so. What could this team possibly need in the draft. You know it. It's funny because you that the fourteen into and it took. A lot of you about right certainly knee I predicted that they would go tied at seven at the beginning of slack either so I could not have been more wrong that I was. They definitely have and need our offensive line. Matt Light is coming up are free agency Logan Mankins they have respect and he certainly not happy I think it would be really surprising if they came to a long term deal with an at this point. And it Stephen Neal who had been their right guard for several years retired. -- within the last couple months so they have a lot of needs on the offensive line defense that we we talked about for several years they need a pass rushing guy. They need some more -- I think at the linebacker position but nobody that top spot in people are trying to tag mark Ingram down Vermont. Because Ingram went Alabama. Great for Nick Saban -- and Belichick are very good friend but. I think -- further down they'll let the -- -- when you look at how poorly the Laurence Maroney experiment worked out for them. They spent the current current draft pick on him you really never you know -- anything it now looks like Maroney going to be out -- -- altogether. Idea that contraption so I think you know they definitely go -- value pick. And traditionally they've done well. You know offensive lineman Logan Mankins with the last pick of the first frank about the prize. They've got a wild defense of wind and Wilfork Ty Warren or Seymour -- I think you know they do need some of those spots filled and I wouldn't expect him to go -- first. -- so they've got some needs well let's pretend your new England's GM in charge of the team's draft let's say you keep the 21 round picks. Who would you slot. As I keep a part two I would say. You know the first one it's nearly -- on the board I think either he or right -- it would be really good. Our guys to bring in and played pretty big -- like elephants sort of role that nobody really felt since Willie McGinest the kind of kind of like outside linebacker kinda like it began publicly get the primarily at the half pressure and they certainly need that spot so. -- either -- damage on the board I would go about it at 28 I think you're looking more toward an -- -- wind and our church dating Lockett would still be there but I think. The intangibles that he had a job interview that background the fact that he's brought -- are next years. -- not be -- -- likely to a league certainly one of the top two or three. And he's dealt with guys like that afford Stephen Neal who potentially Watkins would replace. He had no really no football background I'm a college football background and then you know he became a very solid player for them over the past Peter -- guy like Watkins I think fits the mold. Of them very well it. I -- thanks so much for being -- is that is that for this edition of on the clock brought you by Internet Explorer nine.
