Question: With Ed Reed and Percy Harvin about to become FA’s, do you think the Pats may be interested in either or both and let the aging(but still dynamic) Welker  go? - Tomas 

DraftSeason: First of all Harvin is not a free agent this year so the Pats would have to trade for him.  He’d be an excellent fit taking over the slot role from Welker, and Belichick would surely be creative and line him up everywhere.  The Patriots have shown they can handle receivers with attitude issues so that wouldn’t be a problem either.  They would have to give up picks to acquire him likely a second rounder plus something later.  As for Reed he’s already said he’d love playing for Belichick and the Patriots have signed aging stars in the past, in hopes of getting one more year out of them on a way to a title run.  So I’d say both are very real possibilities for the team. – Lupagus DS @lupagus

Question: Many experts have the Titans taking Chance Warmack from Alabama. There is a good chance he could be off the board when the Titans are on the clock. What is the next best case scenario for the Titans?? – Sal, Memphis – Tennessee

DraftSeason: Chance Warmack is a stud and I think he will be available at 10 because Oakland and Arizona are the only other teams that have major guard issues and they are in prime position to grab OTs which they both need and which has more positional value.

Having said that, the Titans could use a playmaker/sack artist at DE, but this need is actually overrated because of the coverage issues that TN has had in the secondary. In this case Damontre Moore (2nd on my big board) would be a steal at 10, and so would Bjoern Werner.

If the Titans can’t trade down and really want to improve their secondary they could reach for Kenny Vaccaro, or draft another corner (even though they have quality corners) like Dee Milliner.

Finally, the dark horse pick right now for me is Manti Te’o. Tennessee still could make some defensive changes and their personnel make a better 3-4 team than their current 4-3 team IMO. Also even if they stay in the 4-3 McCarthy has struggled to stay healthy and if the Titans fall in love with Te’o then they can’t be afraid to take him because they are believe that McCarthy is the future starter. Thanks for writing! – Will Lomas DS @jlomas72

Question: What do you think is the GB Packers biggest need?  – James – Ft. Belvoir

DraftSeason: I think right now the Packers biggest need is on their offensive line, the Seattle game was the eye-opener but the issue was overshadowed by the Tate-catch scandal. If the Packers feel that there are no quality OL on the board when they pick, they could also use some help on the back-end of their defense. Woodson has had a spectacular career in GB, but a lofty contract, injury, and age will make him a prime suspect when the Packers are figuring out how to create cap room. A safety like Kenny Vaccaro, Eric Reid, or Matt Elam could find a place on the Packers roster. Finally, backup QB is a luxury pick, but if Matt Barkley is there in rd 1 (or Tyler Bray in rd 2) the Packers could pull the trigger on that level of player. If A-rod goes down the Packers current contingency play looks mediocre at best and a SB-level team needs a capable backup QB. – Will Lomas DS @jlomas72

Question: Geno Smith has seemed to jump to the top of the list for best available quarterback. Where would he have gone in last years draft? – Sneaky Carl, North Carolina

DraftSeason: That is a tough one. No possible way he would leapfrog either Luck or RGIII. That said, I think he would of landed between Tannehill at 8 and Weeden at 22. I think it would have been real tough for him to get past the Bills and Chiefs. Funny thing is, those 2 teams will be in play to get him this year. – Matt Falk DS @matt_falk

Question: Any possibility the Rams don’t take an offensive lineman in round 1 of the 2013 draft? –  Dexter, St. Louis

DraftSeason: Dexter, the fact they have 2 picks in the first round I would be amazed if they passed on an offensive lineman. Both picks have a real good chance of being in the top 15. They could have a legitimate shot at top tackle Luke Joekel and or top guard Chance Warmack. Depending who is available don’t count them out on double dipping on the offensive line in round 1.  – Matt Falk DS @matt_falk


October 9th
Question: Do you think Jarvis Jones has the ability to be the next Von Miller/Aldon Smith in the NFL? – Jason G, Georgia

DraftSeason: Jason, quick answer, Yes. Jones has proven to be an elite pass rushing linebacker. I think he will have a very similar impact on the NFL as Miller/Smith. It will be tough to live up to the sack totals they put up as rookies, but I think he is in the same class and is a lock to be a top 10 pick.  – Matt Falk DS @matt_falk

  1. Do any of you gents think the Pats will trade their 1st rounder for a higher pick next year?

    • No, I think the Pats are in more of a “win-now” mode. The team is getting older, and BB may not want to go through another rebuilding phase. If BB chooses to leave on top, then I think the Pats take a player that can play now or they trade that pick and a player (cough cough Wilfork lol) and move up to take someone like Star Lotulelei, or another impact player that can help them now and later.

      • OK,Do you have any idea who can help right away and may be available at #30 because I don’t.We HAVE to get over the hump and get TB a 4TH ring. We just HAVE to man!

  3. WEEI(Providence,RI) says that if franchised, Sebastian Vollmer will make just under $10 million this year for the Pats.That sounds awfully high to me for an offensive tackle,What do you think? He’s a good one(when healthy)and was a bargain the last 4 years as a 2nd round pick,but now…….

  4. I was a little disappointed in the Rams trading down last year when they could have gotten a real stud in the top 10.Do you think they’ll move up or down this year? I’m thinking one of their #1’s and a 4th to move up and get Warmack.

    • I think they stand pat and hope to get Cooper or Vacarro with their first pick.

      • Matt;I hear that this UNC guard(Cooper) is Warmacks equal,if so then the Rams get a good one.Did you see him run at the combine? 343 lbs and a 5.08 40! He might not last til #16.In fact,we may see 2 guards go in the top 10.

  5. I think the Lions will start to come together somewhat this year and begin to show off some of their talented young draft picks(if healthy of course-if not then all bets are off and we’ll see another 5-11 season).Ithink the key is good health and a good draft-you agree?

    • Seems like every year should ‘finally’ be the Lions year … i’m skeptical .. but if they can manage a solid draft hopefully this talented team can finally come together.

  6. Cornerback Alfonso Dennard(Pats) found guilty of smacking a cop-max penalty is a year in jail,no minimum penalty;care to take a guess what’ll happen?Thanx.

    • I’m not gonna try to guess how much time he gets … one thing is clear is this bumps up corner on the list of needs for the Pats.

  7. Is there ANYBODY out there that still thinks Geno Smith will be drafted by KC? I didn’t think so. My advice to all his (ex) backers is quite simple;stop looking for a quick fix(or saviour) and start looking at how best to help their small (but talented) core of veterans be a better team. Yes,they have a very good L tackle-but ADD TO THAT with another blue chip tackle or guard. Same for their corps of LB’s or DB’s or WO’s. Make sense guys? Hopefully a decent QB will surface in 2 or 3 years but don’t give up on Cassel yet because he does have talent BUT NEEDS HELP-LIKE HE HAD IN NEW ENGLAND. NUFF SAID.
