I don't ever expect any of my picks to be taken by BB. I had Solder and Vollmer right but wasn't even close on several other guys, lucky me I had Hernandez right and figured they would double up with Gronk or Pitta, again I was right in a sort of offhanded way because I had AH going before Gronk/Pitta little did I know that they valued Gronk a little higher than AH. I also thought for sure the Eric Decker was headed here instead of Taylor Price and I'm probably right because i think Josh McD caught wind of what BB was planning and he traded up to a couple of spots before the Pats pick at 89. I had an inkling that TB was going to be taken, only because Bill Walsh was bragging that he would be taking a local boy if he got the chance so I read between the lines and the only local boy coming out worth a crap was TB. I didn't see Mayo,Wilfork, Jones, and Hightower. Though I liked them I didn't see the ancillary moves necessary to make all those selections.I am no more than an ametuer GM. That's why I come here to read your thoughts as to where we might be leaning. MB,PatsEng, SeattlePat,JJdBrasil and all of you guys who sit and follow these guys you might be qualified as scouts, but I'm not. I enjoy the guessing game aspect of trying to read BB's tea leaves. So the I've made a few observations on this years drafting prospects, I am going to have to hear some of the language when BB talks to get a better perspective of where he's headed draft wise. Also just so you all know I'm going to keep this thread on the front page where it belongs. Even if I have to blog a diatribe like this every once in awhile.. You all are very informative.Thanks
I will never be a scout. I do not have enough experience in football. However, I like researching and reading about players, football and try to make the fit. Anyone can come on this thread (because MB sets the example) and comment. I find it extremely important to hear other opinions, because unlike other threads and their posters, this thread values opinion and doesn't have "know it alls". I mentioned this before, I am lucky if I get 1 player that NE drafts. I like the process of the search, plain and simple. I also see myself as trying to provide the thread with information so anyone can come on and read something useful.
I think that's a key point to the relative long term success of this thread... there are no agenda's and all opinions are welcome, regardless if you agree with them or not!
