    Dowling cleared waivers, in part because he had some guaranteed money in his deal.

    The Pats miss plenty. They tend to stockpile picks so that the individual misses hurt less and so they can cut bait on an underperforming pick because there's another one waiting in line.

    Lots of other recent high picks released, included Torrell Troup (2nd, Bills, NT), Ben Iljana (2nd Colts, OL) and Danny Watkins (1st, Eagles, OG).

    Iljana could be worth a look - I think he'd have to be better than Whimper. Troup seemed to be a prototype NT coming out, but the Steelers seem set, especially if Ta'amu ends up on the PS.
