    - 7 defensive ends with grades of 8 or higher. Cam Heyward 7.9 Bailey 6.9 that's pretty awesome. I'd be happy with any of those names for the Jets. Note that Phil Taylor is not on the DE board. so chuck that projection the dude is a NT.

    - Nate Solder over Tyron Smith makes sense to me

    -the way he runs routes, it makes sense the Pats would over-value Vincent Brown WR SDSU

    -that's the highest I've seen Utah DT Sealver Siliga ranked. He's usually regarded as a late round top 250 type of player. But it's possible cause most don't know alot about this player.
    Casey Matthews caught my eye

    Boling and Moffit are two of the top 3 G prospects? Smart team.

    Bit, I'm not sure it's possible to overvalue a WR who can run alot of routes. Brown is just an underrated player in general.

    @tomecurran Tom E. Curran: @shageman13 yes, that was a facsimile big board.

    If Curran ever wants another Pats story what else would he say?

    I'd like to revisit this thread after the draft. I find it hard to believe they went out of their way to put up a bogus draft board to amuse us all

    you guys can't be serious? They were in the room that they hold press conferences in with 20 media guys there. I'm surprised none of you have said that it was devious trick by BB trying to throw other teams off.

    The funny part about that video is that the reporter comments on a few occasions that they didn't really reveal much information during the press conference....ummm...dude....TURN AROUND!

    Anyway.....no way...they put up real information on that board....no way.
    all one needs to do is look at the bottom two on the FB rankings and understand its not the real board....then again its good to see the recognize to former FSU present No Ala FB...

    He would tell the other 20 guys in the room not to say anything that it was a secret.

    the Pats really do have a big scouting dept with alot of lowly employees. Making them create a fake draft board sounds exactly like the Patriots way. deception 101 with Bill Belichek

    There were Camera's in that room.

    I think I see what's going on here.

    Belichick is somehow cheating

    Guys, read the article. The media was invited to a session by Cesario on how the Pats rank players. They had a dummy board up to explain the nomencalture
    that is used.

    Any one of us posting in this forum could have chosen an order and placed it up there and assigned values to the players and done this in the morning before the event. And we would have had a board that looked plausible.

    For you guys to think that it wasn't a prop Dareus and aj green would have had to been the 5th ranked players at their position.

    I'm sure you're right, but Dareus is listed as a DE right behind Bowers. Green is listed as the first WR in front of Jones.

    so wait

    we are supposed to believe that a guy who won't even divulge an injury when the player is in a coma, for example, is going to reveal his real draft board to a bunch of media jackals two weeks before the draft


    only one thing is certain


    more smoke and mirrors from the Cheater

    next we are supposed to believe, I guess, that this Tom C-section is the guy who actually makes the draft decisions for the Cheating Douchebags

    regardless of whether is was purposely coordinated or by complete accident, it will turn out to be genius for belicheck- it gets people talking and others wondering...

    Seriously? I wouldn't be surprised if the Patriots had an entire Division of Subterfuge and Espionage in their organizational structure.

    Having some interns put together a "fake" big board for the media to see and "mistakenly" reveal sounds exactly like something BB would do.
