ESPN NFL analyst and former coach Herm Edwards made an appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Thursday morning to talk about the NFL draft, which starts Thursday night. Asked which way Patriots coach Bill Belichick would go if the Patriots had a choice between Texas linebacker/defensive end Sergio Kindle or Oklahoma tight end Jermaine Gresham, Edwards said: "He's going to have to go defense, When you look at them right now, he built that team defensively minded. There's some good linebackers out there. If you can get one of those guys, I think that's important. Along with, I think you can't lose sight of the receiving corps. ... If I'm them, I'm kind of looking at that receiving corps, too."
Asked about Florida quarterback Tim Tebow, Edwards said: "You might see him in New England. If I'm looking at the New England Patriots and where they're at right now with the quarterback situation, he'd be a guy I would look it, there's no doubt about it. Bill likes good football players. ... I think this is a guy you can pick in the second round, train him for a couple of years, and if you hit on him, you've got a guy who is a good football player. He is a good football player."
Added Edwards: "Bill has an offense where it's multi-dimensional. He can use him in certain situations on the football field. Third-down situations, all of a sudden he's in the shotgun, does he run it, does he throw it? Down around the goal line. He can do some things with him. And I think that's the uniqueness of having a guy like this. But I think this guy is a guy obviously you want in your locker room. He has a bunch of intangibles. He wants to get coached. He wants to get better. He's a piece of clay right now. But the thing you know about the guy is he's tough. He's a tough football player."
Edwards said he hopes the Steelers do not trade Ben Roethlisberger but instead try to help the troubled quarterback. "I hope not. I really do. I look at it in a couple of ways. Obviously, he's got a problem. They owe him a little bit of this, in the fact that they should try to help the guy. I believe that, I really do. I can understand there's a lot of emotion around the situation now. This is something they probably knew in the past but never dealt with it. When you win two Super Bowls and you hold those trophies up, a lot of things you don't really look at until it comes out and bites you."
Added Edwards: "If I'm the head coach, I'm running into that office right now and I'm talking to management saying, 'Look, let me help this guy. Let's give him one more shot.' "
