    [QUOTE]It is not just the 7 INT's , it's the physical, tight coverage, the ball hawking skills and the fact he looks like a 10 year vet out there. Never mind ROY, he is the Pats defensive MVP. Only one season under his belt but i get the feeling he will be an EPIC player for the next decade. Someone refresh my memory, who was the best Patriots 1st round pick ever?

    McCourty's been great but I'm not sure if I'd put him up with the likes of:

    Seymour
    Hannah
    Cunningham
    Law
    Clayborn
    Armstrong

    quite yet. Give him a couple more seasons at least

    He might be the best all around 1st round draft pick....."4 down player"

    Bledsoe made the franchise relevant again.  Hannah was great, obviously, as he was a first ballot Hall of Famer.  McCourty, hopefully, will have a great career, but he can't be dubbed the best ever Patriot 1st rounder after one year in the league.  He was great this year, though.

    I was hoping that McCourty would finish the season with more picks than the "vaunted Jets defense" but he came up short.  

    The Jets finished with 8 and McCourty ended up with 7.

    Was Curtis Martin a no. 1? He would also rank higher, IMO.  But McCourty looks like a rare, special find.

    Curtis Martin was a 3rd round pick.

    McGinest does deserve being mentioned here.  He was a great player for a long time.

    I would say it was Seymour. He was, and still is a beast. Probowl as both DT and DE ain't a joke. If DMC keeps this up for another few years then hell yes!

    Jerod Mayo won Defensive Rookie of the Year a couple season's ago, and is leading the NFL in tackles this year.  He deserves consideration, along with Wilfork Seymour, Law etc....but no question the answer is John Hannah.

    Re: McCourty best 1st round pick ever?

    I thought Butler was a pretty good corner as well and it seemed everyone disrespected McCourty and passed the ball he's way more frequently in the beginning of the year.  The Pats secondary was very suspect at the beginning of the season and they have all (especially McCourty) vastly improved.  This is one reason why we've been holding the opposition to way less points than we did in the first half. 

    McCourty is 2nd in the NFL in interceptions and 1st among rookies
              he is 5th in the league in PD's and 1st among rookies
              he's 4th amongst all rookies in tackles plus he has a sack and two forced fumbles


    Not just considering McCourty's stats and the fact that he is only a rookie but considering how he progressed over the season, now think about how good he may be next season.  I remember when no-one know one knew who he was coming out of the draft, this kid is a monster now.  Now just imagine how great this defense is going to be once we draft a couple good DE's???

    I still don't know if we can say McCourty is the best 1st round pick ever, but I will say this.  I think the 2010 draft was the best ever.

    I think Devin McCourty will crack this list someday, he is obviously special and I hope to see him wearing his 1st ring soon.

    My Top 10 Patriots 1st rounders

    1. John Hannah
    2. Michael Haynes
    3. Richard Seymour
    4. Willie McGinest
    5. Ty Law
    6. Bruce Armstrong
    7. Stanley Morgan
    8. Raymond Clayborn
    9. Sam Cunningham
    10. Vince Wilfork

    Honorable mention - Jerod Mayo, Ty Warren, Daryll Stingley, Russ Francis, Tim Fox, Drew Bledsoe, Irving Fryar, Robert Edwards, Daniel Graham, Logan Mankins.

    Hopefully Wilfork, Mayo, McCourty and Mankins get their rings this year.
