In response to TFB12's comment:
But we still have holes for this coming season. I don't see either Easly or Garappolo as a factor this season yet a TE position is a factor for this season. Big chance Revis is a one year rental, go all in while he is here and Brady isn't another year older.
So, what position is a rookie going to come in and start at? TE, maybe. But if they sign Keller and if Gronk is back, how much impact will a rookie have? TE was one of the few positions in this draft that was weak, with little depth, so teams reached a bit for the few who were above average.
LB? Maybe, but how many rookie LBs have a major impact?
And this is a "deep draft," right? Doesn't that mean they can get guys to fill needs today? If it doesn't mean that, what does it mean?
Keller is coming off a bad knee injury, its a big gamble if he can stay healthy. Remember Ballard, LMAO sadly. Gronk is a big gamble to stay healthy. Come on now, any of those top 5 TE's could be a huge impact on this Pats team..... day one. Solid position for a player to come in and make an immediate impact.
The TE position was 5 deep this year, 5 very solid players who would be a major impact on this Patriots team on day 1. That is what I mean! I can not remember another draft where any of the top 5 TE's would have been a great fit in NE.
