    Belichick took Solder much to the consternation of many posters here, I might add that he was the most athletic player available at tackle in years the only weakness to him was weakness, another 20 pounds of strength means our left tackle is going to dominate.

    Also I might add that Belichick took Solder because he read Wozzy's Draft Guide, Solder was the highest rated player on offense and was predicted to go to the Patriots.  That would be two years in a row calling the #1 pick of the Pats...

     



    Nice! You didn't even have to bank that shot!

     



    Thanks lol, I'll never get any credit here, maybe if I pick Belichick's (unlikely, unpredictable?) first overall pick for the third year in a row somebody will notice.

    Wait.   Are you saying that you are taking credit for saying the Pats would take Collins with their first pick?   If I have misunderstood I'll apologize in advance.

     

    If not, this is about the 3rd time I've read you make that claim and I'm going to call you out on it.  I went back to your Guide where you had DT as the Pats highest need.  They certainly did not draft a DT.  And some of the players you listed as good choices were still available to them.  If you are going to claim that you get credit for your highest rated player at  each position that they might take that's not the same thing as everyone else's idea of a mock draft.  That's like having 10 picks instead of 1. 

    EDIT:  In fact, the much ridiculed Mel Kiper had Collins on his board as his #2 OLB (after Jarvis Jones) so I guess Kiper nailed this one too.

    Go to the last page of my thread where I give my final picks the day before the draft.  I gave two players per pick from four position groups.  

     

    The first outside linebacker I had there was Collins and on my big board I had him as the 2nd best OLB/DE overall.  

    If you want to go all the way back to last year, my last year's thread was hovering around page 222.  I had Solder as my 1st offensive player off the board at the Patriot's biggest position of need.

    I don't mock one player per round, thats silly to me because depending where players fall ahead of your pick, it could change the whole outlook of the draft. I don't care about the other teams.  I gave two players from 4 positions I projected the Pat's taking.

    Considering nearly 1000 players declared for the 2013 NFL draft, 254 were selected, the fact that I projected three of them on my final board, not including TJ Moe who we just signed as an UDFA which makes 4 and including the first pick overall is not too shabby.

    To be fair, if you want to take credit for picking Collins this way you have to say Kiper picked him too.  (see my EDIT in prior post)

    If Kiper liked him I won't knock him, then again Kiper never has anything bad to say about anybody and even a broken clock is right twice a day.  

    He also said Gabe Carimi and Anthony Castonzo were better tackle prospects than Solder in 2011, he had Solder going to the Bears 12 picks later. He also said 5x Pro Bowl, 4x All Pro Logan Mankins was a reach. He had Shariff Floyd as the best DT on the board going at number 4 and the guy dropped to 23.

    I would probably not edit the word "anus".



    I guess BDC holds you to a different set of standards then because I couldn't reply to your original post because it said as much.  Still don't understand what you meant?

    Solder 2nd best LT in the AFC behind Joe Thomas.  Thanks, BB!  Seymour sits at home on the couch with Al Davis's money and a blown chance at the HOF.

     



    Absurd. 

     

     



    How is that absurd.  Ain't Bryan McKinnie. Ain't Jake Long. Ain't D'Bustashaw. Ain't Bradon Albert.

    Good luck naming the name!

    Reese has to be really short. I met Soldier last year, he's a tall dude but that looks ridiculous.

    Soldier is going to be a star in this league for a long time. Loved Seymour but that was a good deal.

    Solder is huge. I had no issues with the pick when the pats took him. I do agree with Russ here. He is in the top 3 LTs in the AFC, and I wouldn't be surprised if in a year or two he is number 1 after Dante continues his refinement. Like a sculptor, Dante was given a really good piece of clay to work with, he only has the chip away at the excess to produce a masterpiece.

    my sentiments at teh time of the pick were that he has a frame that could put on pounds and strength that could help him geatly without losing his footwork.
