Following the draft, I had the chance to sit down with former Foxboro Blog contributor, Stephen Sheehan. We chatted about Dominique Easley, Jon Halapio, and his thoughts on the Patriots’ draft. Stephen is currently a NFL/NFL Draft writer for Fanrag.com.
You and I both had Dominique Easley as pick #29 on our final mock drafts. What made you think Easley was going to be the pick...

NEW YORK — The New England Patriots will have a crowded offensive line this summer.

Round 1 Pick 32: Marqise Lee, WR, Southern California (A-)
The Seahawks lost Golden Tate and they need a #1 WR for Russell Wilson.
Round 2 Pick 32: Antonio Richardson, OT, Tennessee (A)
The Seahawks line struggled last year. To repeat, they must get better up front.

Just this past weekend, we caught up with Ian Wharton, a Dolphins analyst from draftmecca.com and got his take on potential Dolphins draft picks at offensive line, those little known, but talented college players from division 2 or 3, and if the Dolphins could find cornerbacks in the draft. Interestingly enough, I hinted that it couldn’t hurt to draft a quarterback in this year’s...
