2014 BBV Community Mock Draft: With 29th pick, New England Patriots select ...

Dee Ford - Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

The New England Patriots are up in the 2014 BBV Community Mock Draft.

The 2014 Big Blue View Community Mock Draft does not rest. The New England Patriots are up with the 29th overall selection, and in his role as pretend GM 'drizzzy' has selection Dee Ford, the pass-rushing defensive end from Auburn.

'drizzzy' explains:

The Pats have two capable defensive ends but they were asked to play nearly every snap and had no rotations for their pass rushers. So even though Ford wouldn't be the starter right away his role still asks for a lot of playing time. PatsPulpit has a pass rusher as their biggest need next to tight end and guards. In a draft that's shallow in pass rushing, Ford is almost a must. Ford is a dominating speed rusher. For comparison's sake, Osi Umenyiora whose speed is unquestioned ran a 4.78 on his 40-yard dash. Dee Ford ran a 4.53 and a 4.59 during the combine. Ford is a little undersized to be an every down DE (6-foot-2, 252 pounds) but he won't be asked to do that with the Patriots. He has his warts in run defense If they can add a top pass rusher, to add with what looks to be a menacing secondary the Patriots will spot a defense reminiscent of 2007-2008. Austin Seferian-Jenkins is an option here but Belichick has previously drafted his tight ends in the second and third rounds and with the depth of freak athletes at that position, I think he'll wait after the first to pick one up. Also of note, Belichick has already met with Dee Ford back in March indicating their interest in finding a pass rusher.
