    Who's gonna go off the "deep end" after the draft???

    You know it is going to happen..  those GM wannabies on this forum will go off the deep end about the draft picks "in BB we trust" will make over the next three days.  This forum will make for some interesting reading as BB may not make the picks so many here feel the team SHOULD make given the fan perception of team needs.  We all know how BB selects players.  Rarely is there a big name among them, rarely is it someone who the fan base will absolutely fawn all over and most times the player is one who fits the Patriots mold for versatility and team play.  Compared to most franchises this has worked well for the Patriots.  There are many fans who would have loved to see their team make the SB 5 out of the last 11 years, let alone one.  Many here blame the draft for "only" 3 SB wins in the last 11 and the losses in SB 42 & 46.  Let the draft and trading frenzy begin!

    When we trade back with 1 of the firsts I see people whining.  However, I hope we do it if it includes a first next year.  I love those trades.

    Can I count JetMangione even though he was hatched and is already off the deep end?

    Me!!! Me!!! why maybe not off the deep end but I may question some of the picks lol. And yes I'm fully expecting one of the picks to be traded back into next year.

    In the next year or two there will be a few players picked after 27 who become great. Then the woulda shoulda coulda people will come out to be miserable and tell us how if we'd only picked joe smith out of Kabookie State the Patriots would win every SB for the next ten years.

    Every year this place goes bat-crazy after the Patriots' picks(or trades) are made. Same as after a loss.

    The trading back is cool. But, I am still shaking my head about last year's draft. Selecting so many offensive players (2 RB's, QB, 2 OL and an injury prone CB) at the top of the draft blew me away. Hey, some of it is already working well, but it was just the opposite of what I expected (Pass rusher!). BB fills needs in strange ways and no matter who is on the roster he continually builds the players abilities and the team's confidence. So, I expect to be disappointed but I also believe BB will find a way to bring the team together.

    fan perception the past 3 years has been that we need a pass-rush and a better secondary.

    The fans were 100% correct in those being the needs

    Bill has been 60-40 miss to hit in the secondary with Chung/McCourty against Wheately/Wilhite/Butler (Ras-I an incomplete)

    He passed on many a solid pass-rusher since '09, to the exteme detriment of the team if even just 2 of the picks we used on the above 3 CB's, Brace, Crable, Price, Tate and the one we traded to NO (or Vareen) were great edge guys.

    Good job with Mayo, Chung, DMC, Gronk/Hernandez, Solder (probably) Spikes and Vollmer/Cannon (if they stay healthy) plus later rd guys like Mesko, Deaderick, Slater, Edelman

    Overall he's better than most out there, but the inability to replace Seymour/Asante since the '07 season cost this team a Super Bowl. We didn't have to overpay and kleep those 2... just bring in guys who would replace what they did '03-'07 w/o the team missing a beat, and Bill didn't do that.

    So far.. I see a lot of folks who have yet to look into the deep end, but, wonder if this is a dream with the first two picks and how they eveloved.  So much against the grain these last few years.  It will an interesting two days!

    I don't really think its all that out of character for the Pats. Before we hail the greatness of any moves we should have a moment of silence for another guy he moved up for- Chad Jackson. Every year early first rounders dissapoint. I'm not being negative Nancy but it sounds like many are assuming because they got a 21 and 26 instead of a 27 and 32 they are good. Three of the best players on the team are a 6th rounder, 2nd rounder, and UDFA.

    The bottom line is that it will always be a crap shoot because you cannot guess what these kids will do once they are handed money and fame.

    as great as rd 1 was, the deep end arrived fast and furious in rd 2

    even their trade down was terrible

    you couldn't get a 3rd/5th from a MIDDLE round team??? you gotta go with a 15-1 club for that gem???

    The impact talent starts to evaporate after picks 70-80... good GOD
