McShay goes the full 7 in mock

4/25/2012

For his final mock draft, Todd McShay of Scouts Inc. produces a full seven-round mock draft.

His picks for the Patriots:

27. OLB Shea McClellin (Boise State)

31. S Harrison Smith (Notre Dame)

48. DL Kendall Reyes (UConn)

62. CB Casey Hayward (Vanderbilt)

93. G James Brown (Troy)

126. RB Edwin Baker (Michigan State)

ANALYSIS: McClellin has been compared to Mike Vrabel and could be a big boost for the pass rush, while Smith projects as a Day 1 starter at safety and on special teams. Looks like a solid first round. One of the questions with Reyes is if he can be a true two-gapper, which the Patriots have generally preferred, but he has some pass-rush burst. He could still fit. The rest of the picks fill areas that could use depth.
