In response to JohnHannahrulz's comment:
Can one of you guys clarify things for me? Did Brady get sacked more times last year than any season since 2001? If this is true (along with completion % lower than usual) then the Pats brass really has to look at the O Line; I am thinking something from round 4 on....definitely day two/three pick ;OG with Center ability or experience would be ideal; I like Hageman and Telvin Smith picks for some mocks, however, if Kelvin Benjamin is there do you pick him. As previously stated I could also see a situation where one of the top 5 QBs falls and the Pats 1st becomes a marketable pick to shop.
Part of the completion % drop is due to the absence of Gronk and Amendola for extended periods of time and some could be due the inconsistantcy and injuries of Thompkins and Dobson. Rookie WRs and too many injuries in WR corps.
I really appreciate all the work MB, PatsENg, Wazzu Melle Mel (and the Furious Five)and others are putting into this. And I know some have OG and C in their mocks.
That stat appears to be correct... (40) is the most since 2001 (41). To that point, yes I think most are pushing for some added talent/depth up front... it'll also be nice to have Seabass back.
Benjamin is on my Rd 1 shortlist, so I'd love to see him end up in Foxboro.
Yeah, injuries and an influx of rookie WR's certainly was a factor is his decreased comp % and YPA.
Happy to contribute!
