San Jose St. DL Jarron Gilbert

connerman with the pick...

Up to this point, we've seen the Patriots get quite a haul in the 2009 (Mock) NFL Draft. Chris "Beanie" Wells is the new stud RB to learn from Fred Taylor and company. Then the Pats got defensive in the second round - taking premiere talents like DE Robert Ayers from Tennessee and DE/OLB Paul Kruger, who many of us like for our own Chiefs here, if possible. Now sitting for them like a prize all alone as easily the top player available is another D-line gem: Jarron Gilbert.

Gilbert is a man-beast out of San Jose State whose physical presence is dominating. He has the flexibility to play all positions on the defensive line and the instincts to move well even against sizable opponents. He posted 22 tackles for loss (!) last year and 9.5 sacks, displaying the ability to disrupt the backfield. And with fellow linemen like Richard Seymour and Ty Warren to learn from, Gilbert's raw techniques will find plenty to take on.

Secondary could be another option here, but it's hard to imagine ignoring the board here and not taking the best player available. And with these four in the first two rounds, the Patriots have completely enhanced their ball club in ways unexpected.

Round 1 is here.

Previous pick: WR Brian Robiskie
