BBV Community Mock Draft 2011: With The 17th Pick, New England Selects ...

Mike Pouncey, OG/C, Florida.

My son is now firmly in the Valentine family doghouse. If you guys have been following you know that this pick for New England was made by my teen-age son, Ryan. I'm letting the cat out of the bag here, but this sends me scrambling for Plan B when the New York Giants turn comes up at No. 19. Pardon the pun, but if Pouncey was still on the board for the Giants I was poised to pounce. No doubt in my mind that is the pick I was going to make.

To be honest, Ryan knew that and there is part of him, I'm sure, that took Pouncey here just to tick off his old man. This, though, is also a good pick for the Patriots. It really came down to Pouncey or Wisconsin defensive end J.J. Watt, and I find it hard to argue with the selection of Pouncey.

The Patriots have needs across the offensive line, and protecting Tom Brady needs to be a priority for New England. We know the Patriots have a plethora of defensive needs, but they have three more picks in the first two rounds. That gives them plenty of picks, and there will be plenty of talented players available, for them to fill some of those holes.
