NFL.com analyst and former NFL executive Pat Kirwan joined the Dennis & Callahan show to talk about free agency and the draft. Kirwan said the Patriots would be wise to re-sign Leigh Bodden. "I would not trust any of the other cornerbacks in free agency," he noted.
In Kirwan's mock draft, he joins the list of people who are predicting the Patriots will select Michigan linebacker Brandon Graham. "He's really bright, he really loves football," Kirwan said, comparing Graham's focus to current Patriots linebacker Jerod Mayo.
Kirwan, who spent eight years working for the Jets, said he is not convinced that New York has moved past the Patriots, because, "It starts with the quarterback." Of the Jets' recent decision to release running back Thomas Jones, Kirwan said: "Those guys ran more than anyone in the NFL, and they lost one of their bell cows. I think they made a tactical error."
Asked about Tim Tebow, Kirwan said the Florida quarterback won't be an NFL star, but: "Could he give you a Jake Delhomme career? I think he could."
