In response to bredbru's comment:
just reading the gm thread where quag posted only thing we know is whover we covet bb woont pick them. took stock the past 3 years.
for a fun share what guys did you all have on yor pats list that made it here teh last 3 years?
its a short list for me but got better last year when bb thought upwards rather than down (not being a draftnik, my time put into learning players beyond what i see in games is small [this year very very smal]), so i draft from who i know (a much smaller field than many of you) and who i covet (over who bb may pick).
last year i had hightower, had jones as 1 of 3 pass rushers i coveted and ebert as a udfa potential pickup.
2011 i had dowling (provided his health checked out-we took him anyway)
2010 i had spikes,
Hightower was a fairly big name around here.
I think I called Dennard but a couple rounds earlier (I tend to pick high talent falling stars in mid rounds because BB likes to take chances with them).
Most of us had either Gronk or Hern but not both
I think I remember MB mentioning Ridley or maybe it was Low
I had McCourty and Bequette was mentioned a number of times.
I know a number of people had Solder.
It's actually surprising how many names this thread gets right in the end. Then again with 20+ people participating at any given point and each having 5 people they like at each pick the law of averages does have to kick in
"Then again with 20+ people participating at any given point and each having 5 people they like at each pick the law of averages does have to kick in"
still lot of mocks have less pats picks
"Hightower was a fairly big name around here."
i think i was the first to go public on hightower stock last year.
