That all sounds great on paper. The front 7 is lacking a star. This sets us up to use each pick on the best player available. I think teams screw up in the draft trying to draft for needs. Certain years there may not be many good prospects at a particular position. Was Stanley Jean Baptiste the best player on the board when we picked him last year? I know Jarvis Landry was available and he looks great. He'd pair perfectly with Cooks. But like I've said, Payton doesn't draft LSU players. This year I'd love to see us take Collins, Kwon Alexander, Hunter and even Kenny Hilliard with a late pick. I heard the Pats have drafted a ton of LSU players in the last several years. Recipe for success and awesome for the fans. A WIN WIN!

Au Contraire, Mon Frère!

Not drafted by Bill though.
That was the comment i was referring to was that the Pats drafted loads of LSU players in the past couple of years.

I think this a smoke screen. I believe they have in mind to pick someone out this year draft to start in the Lofton's old position, Ellerbe & Hawthorne will compete for that weak side position

Its quite possible that both Ellerbe and Hawthorne could be back-ups by mid-season or earlier.
