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
[/QUOTE] None of the prior drafts have the Patriots used a first round pick on a safety, 2013 our first round was round 2 and we took Collins a LB and Dobson WR, 2012 was the trade up year and they drafted Chandler Jones and Donte Hightower and neither of those two play safety, yes they have taken safeties in round two and three but no first day safeties ever since Tim Fox. They have signed several safeties who are marginal starters and they have survived their lack of production, but the kid I'm talking about isn't your run of the mill SS he's probably the next Rodney Harrison, he hits in the legally targeted zones but he breings pain with his hits, and just my talking about him doesn't mean in any way that BB is even looking at him. There are others who would be just fine as projects but if your looking for a day one starter there are three in this draft : HaHa, Calvin and Deone those three will impact the NFL immediately.
