    Belichick whiffs in the 3rd again...

    With Ryan and Harmon struggling in camp, Belichick's impressive record of 3rd round failures continues.

    Patriots 3rd round 2000-2013

    It is what it is.

    Wow! You're willing to make a decision this fast on rookies? 

     

    There is a ton of time before the season for them to improve. Did I mention they're rookies! If this was year 3 for them it would be a different story.

         No worries, Cuban...we have a former second rounder for 2012, Tevon Wilson, waiting in the wings! Maybe BB will call back Terrence Wheatley, and see if that rod was finally removed from his wrist.

     

         Geez!

     Wow, how bout we give the kid at least 1 exhibition game. The defense is complicated for new players.Let him learn the system, so that he can play on his instincts. It's a huge adjustment for most rookies. Bequette looks much better this year than last already. Patience

    So if Ryan and Harmon don't start they are busts? just out of curiosity how many 3rd round picks in this years draft do you think are going to start?

    DBs can be judged rather quickly. I remember Pete Carroll's staff worring about Chris Canty after he was constantly getting burned by undrafted WRs in May rookie camp.

    I remember Ellis Hobbs giving up big plays in preseason games in his rookie year.

    The ability to cover is like being pregnant. Either you have it or you don't. Ryan is getting torched on a regular basis. Harmon was a reach. BB could have drafted a QB with that pick as there were 3 available that passed the 27 starts/60% Comp criteria.

    Additional note: Brandon Tate was taken over Mike Wallace (the next pick) in 2009. Ooops.

    One of the most amazing threads in the history of this forum (at least since I've been posting here).  A whole week of training camp and they're not setting the world on fire - absolutely disgusting.  When will Belichick ever start producing teams with consistent winning records and make the playoffs year in and year out?  Oh, wait.

    On every posting board in this place, among the most common thread types are:

    1.  the posters who "would've drafted this guy over that guy"

    2.  the ever popular "this guy hasn't lit the world on fire immediately, so he's awful"

    Both are jokes.  Like you know more than the Pats' personnel guys?  Like young guys don't take time to develop?  Please!

    I'm that guy but I tell you the player I would have drafted immediately after the pick, never change who I said I would have drafted, and own up to it if my own pick ends up sucking and BB's pick is great, so give me a little credibility  :p

    Way to early to write off ANYONE drafted in ANY spot yet!

    Let's calm down and see what happens next weekend with the Eagles.

    WOW... 1 week into camp and these guys are busts???  Not the players I would have picked at those spots either, but considering the teams success under BB over the past decade + I'll continue to trust BB's personnel decisions more than yours...or my own for that matter...From what I've read Harmon's made some nice plays mixed with some bad , Ryan's looked bad , Collins, Dobson and Boyce have all looked very good...But it's still WAY too early to tell much...Overall, I have a good feeling about this draft and our team this year... Enjoy your doom and gloom though

    Meh. This is what BB does. Nothing new. His mediocre drafting over the years has produced a mediocre team with a HOF QB. 10% chance to win it all. Time for a real GM and BB to stick to being HC.

    Can't say I agree with the whole "sky is falling" or "BB is the worst drafter/GM" in the league sentiments that are so prevalent here, but I'll go on the record saying that neither Ryan nor Harmon were high in my books. I'll also go on the record saying that I am no expert and that my opinion in the grand scheme of things means nothing. But there were other players I would've preferred to have been taken (as there are every year) and here's to hoping that my gut reaction was wrong. Anyway, we're a long long way from determining if these two are busts, average Joes, or HoF'ers.

    What you seem to be forgetting is when you have a good, perennial playoff team, the talent level on that team is so high, third round picks are just camp fodder.

    When they start handing out Super Bowl trophies for third round draft choice proficiency please let me know, in the meantime we're the winningest team over the last decade.    We're winning a Super Bowl this year.

    I won't be surprised if all of the current Rudgers rookies are not on the team in three years.
