In response to TripleOG's comment:
None of you guys have a problem with BB drafting a S or CB in the 1st round?
Didnt we draft 2 safeties in each of the last 2 drafts and sign A.Wilson and Gregory? IDK, maybe its just me but im growing tired of always seeing the same needs for the Pats year after year. Once again the Pats are on the list of teams that need CB?!!! Why?? I mean we just drafted Logan, Dennard, Paid Arrington and have the inside track on Talib not to mention McCourty was a CB coming out.
I just feel we have too many needs to keep wasting pic after pic on DBs. Why do you guys feel BB would get it right. When faced with M.Griffin, R.Nelson and Meriweather he picked the worse of the 3. When he had his choice of L.White, D'angelo Williams or Joseph Addai, he chose Laura Maroney. History has shown BB is gonna make the wrong pic just trying to be different. Im sick of getting wasted S after S in the draft. Go spend some money on a NFL veteran and be done with and Please dont get a washed up converted CB like Gregory to play SS.
Wow...this thread just got me depressed. We are still drafting safeties??? Smh
I want BB to draft the best talent on the board, so I would have absolutely zero problem with him drafting Calvin Pryor in Rd 1. He would provide them with something that they don't currently have on the roster, a big, rangy, physical S that can impact down in the box. The board is also very much in favor of a DT or TE, etc. in Rd 1.
Michael Griffin and Reggie Nelson were not availble when NE was on the clock, so he didn't pass on either to select Meriweather.
At the end of the day, we don't know what they'll do in FA, so all we can do is discuss the prospects that we think can have the biggest impact. Once we do, I'm sure a few names may change (i.e. if they sing a TJ Ward, etc.
If there's a player that you're interested in and want to discuss in Rd's 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, at any position, have at it... we can engaged in that discussion.
