    Patriots release fourth-year DT Brandon Deaderick.

    @MikeReiss: Surprising roster move of sorts for Patriots, who release fourth-year DT Brandon Deaderick. Split snaps as starter next to Wilfork in '12.

    Re-Grading the 2010 Patriots Draft Picks: Brandon Deaderick

    NEPD Staff Writer: Dan Hope

    With just two installments in NEPD’s 2010 draft re-grades, we skip ahead to seventh-round pick (No. 247 overall) Brandon Deaderick, their final draft selection in that draft class who spent a significant stint of time on their roster during the regular season.

    One of the Patriots’ biggest needs going into the 2013 NFL draft is for a pass-rushing defensive tackle who can line up next to Vince Wilfork inside, and part of the reason for that is that Brandon Deaderick has not established as a quality long-term starting option inside. But considering the Patriots drafted Deaderick with a compensatory seventh-round selection, they should be very happy with what they’ve gotten out of him.

    While Deaderick is not able to generate much pressure as an interior penetrator, he is a strong interior lineman who is a solid run-stopping defensive tackle. Upon his insertion into the starting lineup in the 2012, he was at least a definite upgrade over Kyle Love.

    Starting as a defensive end in the Patriots’ 3-4 defense in 2010, and becoming a defensive tackle with their conversion to a 4-3 base defense, Deaderick has remained a steady part of the Patriots’ rotation in all three of his NFL seasons. He has played in 34 regular-season games over three seasons, and has 14 combined starts.

    Whether the Patriots will keep Deaderick after his contract runs out after next season is uncertain, but he would be worth keeping as a rotational player. He is a good player against the run, can kick outside to defensive end in a pinch and provides solid, reliable depth.

    What Deaderick is not is a starting-caliber, three-down defensive tackle. That said, the Patriots would have truly gotten a steal if Deaderick turned into that. Considering the small investment they put into Deaderick, the return value has been far greater.

    Deaderick has been more productive than some of the defensive linemen selected ahead of him, and would likely grade out as a fourth-round pick in a 2010 re-draft.

    Grade: A-

    It was a good pick for the end of the seventh round, you don't have to get an all pro for it to be a quality pick that late.

    Deadrick was a decent rotational guy. Not a world beater but not a liability. I'm surprised they cut him, but also a guy that you'd look to upgrade from.

    Basically, a JAG. Gotta have some of those on your squad, but no big loss.

    Understood of course - my point was more about how every move the Pats makes basically gets an A from someone.

    The Pats have a 7th rounder start a bunch of games and its a steal. We have any low rounder start a bunch of games and it's because: a) we can't draft, b) no one wants to play here + they are inevitably a 'JAG' and there was some guy drafted a few slots before them who's a steal for another team. . .

    Seems like a Devito type player, which we may need if Kenrick Ellis can't handle a full-time gig. Someone to put in on 1st/2nd downs purely to stop the run.

    But he probably wants starter money and won't get it here.

    Wonder how they evaluated those picks once the Jets selected them? Did you see what grade they gave the Jets for their draft?

    Spot on, IMO.

    I can't stand this term "a Jag" he is not a Jag. Jags do not start games and perform well at times. My definition of a jag is one of those guys that don't get activated at game day. It is like the league is made up of stars and jags, it is not Average NFL players who see action every game are not jags. His results were spotty, but the guy started games in the NFL. I am very surprised by this cut. I know it is BB's way of "rewarding" a player who he does not think will make the team by giving him a better shot at getting a gig somewhere else.

    I rather hold on to the guy rather than trust in Armstead and Forston's development and that no injuries appear in camp.

    In the recent 30 for 30 special, Ron Meyer called Tony Eason a "JAG". That is the correct use of the term, IMO. Like most teams, the Patriots have stars (e.g. Brady), guys who are good but not stars (e.g. Spikes), JAGs (I'll use Gregory as an example now that Deaderick is gone); scrubs (e.g. Rivera); and developmental players (e.g. Bequette).

    JAG stands for Just Another Guy. That's exactly what Deadrick was - just another guy.

    That's not meant as a put down, but that's what he - and many others in this league - are. They aren't playmakers, but they aren't complete scrubs. Deadrick was a nice enough player, but are you really upset he's gone? Probably not - you're mildly surprised but in two days, or when camp starts, you won't have your head on a swivel looking for #74 (or is that Kyle Love....another JAG?)

    Every team has them...perhaps its a simple matter of definitions. What would you like to call average players like Deadrick?

    Guys started 15 games, played in 34 in 3 seasons and had 5 sacks as a 7th round pick. What grade do you think a 7th round pick who contribute in all of his his first 3 seasons?
