Playing the rookie comparison game
By Mike Reiss
In one of the recent editions of Patriots Football Weekly, the hard-working staff selected a "comparable NFL player" for each of the team's draft picks. From this perspective, the comparable NFL player is meant in terms of style of play and physical makeup, not necessarily production.
It's a fun exercise, and the idea on this sure-to-be slow Saturday is to share PFW's thoughts and then add our own:
1st round -- Nate Solder
PFW: Robert Gallery (Raiders)
ESPNBoston: Joe Staley (49ers)
