Patriots #17 Pick

The Patriots make fans scratch their skulls a bit, as they bypass the hometown kid in Anthony Costanzo, and they select Nate Solder, OT, from Colorado. Solder has technical issues, and he tends to get beat. The Patriots, with this selection, basically will be bidding a solid goodbye to Matt Light, who is an unrestricted FA in 2011. Light was the most overrated tackle in the NFL as far as I was concerned, so I'm not worried about it.
Solder was a rising commodity, but the Pats will have to do a ton of work with him. He probably landed in the right spot to get the coaching that he needs.

Chargers are on the clock...
