The Phinsider Community Mock Draft: Pick #7 - New England Patriots

With the sixth pick in The Phinsider Community Mock Draft, the New York Jets select Vernon Gholston, DE, Ohio State.

Gholston picked up 56% of the vote, with Glenn Dorsey picking up 15% and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie getting 11% of the vote.

So the mock draft now looks like this so far:

  1. Miami Dolphins - Chris Long, DE, Virginia (49%)
  2. St. Louis Rams - Jake Long, OT, Michigan (67%)
  3. Atlanta Falcons - Matt Ryan, QB, BC (68%)
  4. Oakland Raiders - Darren McFadden, RB, Arkansas (47%)
  5. Kansas City Chiefs - Ryan Clady, OT, Boise St. (30%)
  6. New York Jets - Vernon Gholston, DE, Ohio St. (56%)
Next up with pick #7 is everybody's favorite team to hate, the New England Patriots.  For Patriots' news and insight, you can check out Pats Pulpit.  And as always, the Pats' draft needs are below and are courtesy of NFL Draft Countdown:
1. Cornerback: Asante Samuel is gone. Randall Gay is gone. Heck, they even lost Eugene Wilson! Other than maybe Ellis Hobbs there is not anything resembling a starting-caliber corner on their roster.
2. Linebacker: Tedy Bruschi is essentially playing on a year-to-year basis now, all of their starters are at least 30-years-old and to say there is little or no depth to speak may be a huge understatement.
3. Offensive Tackle: Matt Light is solid at left tackle but certainly not special while Nick Kaczur has been just a marginal starter in the NFL and was exposed at times throughout the season and playoffs.

Who do you THINK the Pats will select with the 7th overall pick?
