    Re: ***2013 Patriots Draft Thread V2***

    I certainly like the Rutgers LB better than the safety.  I think he was a solid pick for where they took him. 


    Interesting draft, a bit surprising but not really.  We took 2 LBs, 2 DBs, 1 DE, and 2 WRs.  No big bodies on either side of the ball.  I wasn't too surprised we didn't draft DT but I thought we might add an interior OL type.  Taking the 2 WRs were a no brainer and I like that we got some edge guys with size and speed.  But let's talk about the D side of the ball. 

    Second draft in a row that we went heavy on defense.  Last year we drafted 1 LB, 3 DBs, 2 DEs and 1 WR.  So two years in a row focusing on the exact same 4 positions!!  Guess that tells us BB still isn't happy with those groups. 

    Man, I can't believe all the DBs we've picked and blown through since Asante Samuel left.

    2008:  Wheatley (2nd), Wilhite (4th)

    2009:  Chung (2nd), Butler (2nd)

    2010:  McCourty (1st)

    2011:  Dowling (2nd), Williams (7th)

    2012:  Wilson (2nd), Ebner (6th), Dennard (7th)

    2013: Ryan (3rd), Harmon (3rd)

    That's 12 DBs in a 6 year span!!  The sad thing is many of these picks never should of happened.  Wheatley and Dowling were well known to be injury prone.  Wilson and Ryan were drafted way ahead of where they were rated and one or both could have been had as UDFAs.

    If it makes you feel better I didn't think we needed an OL but we needed a DT so neither of us was right lol

    Oh BB signed a Rutgers CB in UDFA (Brandon Jones) so currently we have 4 Rutgers secondary members, 1 LB, and 1 DL. We are quickly turning into Rutgers North. I have to wonder though why their former coach didn't target any of them in the draft

    File this under pure conjecture, but BB wouldn't pick 3 guys from Rutgers with 2 already there for no reason...It makes you wonder what was going on with them last year that BB feels the need to fill the team with a bunch of guys that know each other very well and can communicate easily....something was amiss last year, the last 2 years...maybe that was it...guys not really fitting in making bad decisions at the wrong times...BB hates that




    The chatter I was hearing is that Rutgers kids are in a more pro type system with pro work habits on and off the field, so the potential is their for them to acclimate to the NFL quicker... we'll see if that holds true with any of these kids.

    Wow... I'm pretty excited about that too... was high on him as a Rd 7 option due to his Welker like qualities... tough, good short area kid.

    was it mb that saw him as the new indestructo welker?

     

     



    Yeah, def saw him as a great fit for what they like in their slot WR's... has  Welker's toughness... well no one's as tough as Welker, but Moe is a tough kid and also has very good short area quicks as evident by his 6.53 3C.. which was one of the top times, if not the top time for any player at the combine.
