I like having good disscusions with you Rusty. You don't get snippy with me and we just talk fact and opinon, no bs.
I saw you were asking Babe who has had better drafts than the Pats from 2010-2012. I'd say that the Bengals and Seahwaks were better to even while the 49ers are close to even or little below.
Bengals: 2010: Jermaine Gresham (1), Carlos Dunlap (2), Jordan Shipley (3), Geno Atkins (4) all have been good picks
2011: AJ Green (1), Andy Dalton (2), Clint Boling (4) all starters now.
2012: Dre Kirkpatrick (1), Kevin Zietler (1), Mohamed Sanu (3) all starters too. and Orson Charles (4), and Devon Still (2) are solid contributors. look at the names they have brought in. dunlap, sanu, dalton, atkins all non-1st rounders too.
Seahawks: 2010: Russel Okung (1), Earl Thomas (1), Golden Tate (2), Kam Chancellor (5) all huge for them now
2011: James Carpenter (1), Richard Sherman (5) both huge starters
2012: Bruce Irvin (1), Bobby Wagner (2), Russell Wilson (3), Robert Turbin (4), JR Sweezy (7), huge draft. they have huge talent through these three years.
49ers: 2010: Anthony Davis (1), Mike Iupati (1), Navorro Bowman (3), Anthony Dixon (4), Kyle Williams (6) all play big roles except for dixon
2011: Aldon Smith (1), Colin Kaepernick (2), Chris Culliver (3), Kendall Hunter (4) all huge for them. but 2012 draft sucked for them so yeah.
I'd say the Bengals were even to our drafts and the Seahawks may actually surpass ours. While the 49ers fall right behind us as well. But, yes BB put together a top 3 draft classes 2010-2012 but there were teams up there with us too!
jsut looking for a disscussion!
