@yoyoma Yeah they can and they should, but the point I was trying to make was that an offensive tackle is a much bigger need than a linebacker and the Pats need to address the tackle position as soon as possible in the draft. Walter and Chuck both seem to think that the Patriots' offensive line isn't a mess.
@cowboysfan Huh? Patrick Willis is 6'1" 240, which is the weight Jack will likely play at. Kuechly is 6'3" and 235, so tall, but leaner. Jack is a stud and whoever drafts him will have a Pro-Bowler on their hands. He's ridiculous in coverage, so he can stay on the field for 3 downs, and his sideline to sideline speed is elite. The Cowboys will be lucky to have him.
Here is a recap of the player interviews that were conducted on the field after Tuesday's practice by the South team. Typically, these interviews with area scouts are to set up longer, formal interviews for a night during the week. While teams say they "talk" to every player, teams do not take the time to conduct formal interviews with every draft prospect, so this can be a clue as to which players are on their radar.
Baltimore - Duke wide receiver Connor Vernon, Georgia wide receiver Tavarres King, Stanford running back Stepfan Taylor, Texas A&M wide receiver Ryan Swope and Wake Forest fullback Tommy Bohanon
Denver - Georgia safety Shawn Williams and Texas A&M wide receiver Ryan Swope
Indianapolis - Rice tight end Vance McDonald
