* The Patriots traded their 2010 3rd and 5th round picks to the Raiders for LB Derrick Burgess.

According to the Mock Draft Muncher ( Visit The Muncher ), Texas defensive end Sergio Kindle had been projected as the Patriots best fit in the first round until recently. Penn State defender Jared Odrick, has since taken over as the most popular pick according to the general consensus.

Both Ordick and Kindle fit urgent needs for the Patriots, defensive linemen. Kindle is actually projected as an OLB, and has been connected to New England as a good fit for their 3-4 defense which requires more athletic college ends who can move in space to play coverage as needed. Odrick, would fit more of the Jarvis Green, Richard Seymour role – an interior lineman who can play inside or outside on a 3-man front.
