In Mocking The Draft's latest 2012 NFL Mock Draft, Brad Wells predicts that the New England Patriots will ship away one of their first-round picks and use the other to select Devon Still, a 6-foot-5, 310-pound defensive tackle from Penn State.
27. New England Patriots
Devon Still | Defensive tackle | Penn State: The annoyingly patient Patriots simply sit and wait while everyone else trades for need players. At pick 27, Devon Still falls into their lap, a defensive tackle for a team that really needs better interior line play to compliment Vince Wilfork. Remember, the Pats play more of a 4-3 base defense now, and Still offers Bill Belichick more options along his front.
New England often trades its draft choices for future value, and Still would fit a need if he falls that far in the first round. The Penn State product is No. 20 on National Football Post's 2012 NFL Draft Big Board, so there's a chance he isn't around by the time the Patriots are on the clock.
