With the 31st pick, the New England Patriots select Nick Perry, defensive end from USC.
As noted after the previous Patriot's pick, New England needs a pass rusher and Nick Perry is the most dynamic one available. He's an explosive pass rusher, a great athlete and he has tremendous potential, especially if he improves against the run and in coverage. If he works on his conditioning, however, his ability to get to the quarterback alone makes him a steal at 31. (Considering he was mentioned as potentially a better pick at the previous slot, I hope he'll be acceptable here.)
As I mentioned in the previous pick of the Patriots, I thought Perry would be a better pick. Since it is even a little lower and he is still available, this makes the pick that much better. Since much of New England's defensive problems were the result of a lack of pass rush, Perry can potentially be a difference maker on the defense. It is said that when you pick in the first round, you need players that can make a difference. Perry could very well be that person.
