Alex Mack, C, California

23. New England Patriots
NFL TEAM

Drafter: MaPatsFan

Reasons for drafting: "Everyone's gonna scratch their heads on this one - let me explain. The Patriots defensive backfield struggled in 2008 and maybe struggled is being kind. When our star CB is Ellis Hobbs, you have to wonder what's going on. Belichick and crew had a busy FA offseason picking up Leigh Bodden and Shawn Springs - not superstars, but I'm less worried about the position than I was a few months ago. OLB could use an elite rookie to groom, but they've all been taken prior to 23; the rest are clear second rounders and we can wait on that position while most likely starters Adalius Thomas and Pierre Woods hold down the fort. With the eventual departure of Rodney Harrison, safety could be a concern, but not a first round concern; Meriweather is back, Tank Williams is healthy, and James Sanders is signed."
