    Well . . .  there's obviously no single "correct" answer to this question, but what I remember specifically about the Razzy Dowling pick was how "valuable" everybody (and everybody includes me) thought that first pick on the second day was going to be. That it turned out to be a handful of magic beans probably amused a lot of people who love to hate the Pats, but one can't help but wonder how it is that a guy who clearly believes in the "more is better" approach to the draft couldn't sell this particular pick for love or money.

    I'll continue to destroy a dead horse... I really, really, really wanted Randall Cobb in the 2011 draft and they took Shane Vereen.  Not a total miss as Vereen certainly has flashed some ability, but Cobb would be electric in this offense and in the return game.



    Don't worry we got a second shot with McKinnon. The Cobb of QB->RB conversions. Btw he looks to have decent hands too  >.> 



    I wasn't huge on vareen when we took him, I called in a thread a while back that Steven Ridley will be a better back when we drafted both of them. I remember everyone was pumped about vareen.

    Pats had a shot at Clay Matthews and traded down.....bad business



    Clay Matthews would have been out of the league in three years if he came to the Pats. He never would have played a down here.

    None of them. Every player on the team contributed to what the Pats are no matter where they were picked and no matter what the did when they got here. They all added to the chemistry and that chemistry would be different with different players. The Pats are the best team in the NFL and they wouldn't be there if they hadn't picked who they did.

    how does Strahan get into the hall of fame and Clay Matthews Sr does not?

    I'm not one to use hindsight as a tool very often, but I think trading up for Chad Jackson really hurt.  Not only for the draft picks you had to give up to get him, but for the fact that he just couldn't process the Pats' offense and was terrible.  Double whammy.  When you trade up like that, you expect to hit.  

    I never thought trading back and compiling picks was a terrible strategy.  Getting more chances at striking gold is what the draft is about somewhat.  But trading up and missing is not good.

    ^ Wow...there is something to be said about this statement.  Start with Merriweather in 2007, and go straight on up through to 2013...A-Lot of DefensiveBacks.  You could go up against the chinese w/ the total # of selections BB has used on DBs.

    Brandon Meriweather, Mike Richardson, Terrance Wheatley, Jonathin Wilhite, Matt Slater (WR/DB/ST), Patrick Chung, Darius Butler, Ras I Dowling, Malcolm Williams, Tavon Wilson, Alfonzo Dennard, Logan Ryan, Duron Harmon, annnnd......Devin McCourty.

    ehhh- 1 outta 14 in 7 years, ain't too shabby.

    Out of all the picks the Ras-I Dowling pick bugs me the worst.  First pick on the 2nd day.  I was floored.  What a gamble.  That pick needed to be productive and a can't miss.  BB and the boys messed this one up.

    In response to Pats7393's comment:

    how about the first 3 picks of 2009!

    Chung, Brace, Butler

    Pats could have had:

    Conor Barwin OLB/DE (one of the favorites in that year's mb draft thread)

    LeSean McCoy RB

    Jairus Byrd pick on spot after Butler by Bills turns into top 3 S in the game



    The funnier thing about Byrd is he was Chungs teammate at Oregon. You'd think with all the homework done on Chung between scouting and film before the draft that someone would have noticed Byrd. Didn't NE trade Cassel and Vrabel for that pick?

    I thought Chung was the first pick in the second round, no?

    dowling and it isnt close. maroney played a few good games for the patriots including a huge game in the afc championship against the chargers when the passing game struggled. dowling was about the same as a first round pick and gave the patriots nothing. zero zip nothing. complete waste of a high pick. tavon wilson and jermaine cunningham were god awful picks but dowling was the worst. i screamed when they drafted him because i knew his injury history well. id hoped that i was wrong and that the patriots knew something about the guy that i wasnt seeing but no. horrible pick. gave us nothing
