I like how your calling the pats last 5 years of drafting abysmall
Lets look at the players we have that would be 1st round picks if another draft was held tomorrow
1.)Mayo(rookie defensive player of the year)
2.)McCourty(rookie dpoty runner up)
3.)Gronk(leading TE scorer as a rookie)
4.)Hernadez(Right behind gronk, despite missing the later games due to injury)
5.)Mallet(potential heir apparent, Also allows us to trade hoyer, a backup who id say is an upgrade for around half the NFL, an undrafted FA in '09)
We lost a pick after the 07 season correct? so lets see
09, 10, 11
3 years 5 guys with 1st round talent
That doesnt even take into account the potential of the 2 RB we have, as well as the new kid at CB Ras-i.
Lets look at the unknowns for a second
Solder and Cannon Are two green to know how they will pan out but lets say they are both servicable. Add those two to Volmer who we got 3 years ago means we have 3 solid, young members of the offensive line to take over for Light/mankins/conolly.
Overall im more then happy with the players we have now, and going forward, and anyone else that thinks having 5 first round quality players in the last 3 years with the potential for 1-2 more already on the roster, as well as 2 1st round picks next year, is out of thier mind crazy, and to top it all off the pats are the favorite to win it all.
BB is building the team to Stay on top for the next decade. You want to talk about terrible drafting talk about Denver, or oakland, or miami, or buffulo, or the yankees(i mean jets) how about the 49's, Seatle i could go on.
People need to calm down about missing some picks from 5 years ago.
