    We passed on Rey Maualuga in the SECOND round. I actually really like the Chung pick, but come on. Three years down the line that decision might not look so great. Butler is a really good pick, but Brace confuses the **** out of me. Assuming we sign Wilfork next year(we'll tag him if we can't) he won't be anything more than a backup for us. Nose tackles are always a good find and Brace is a true nose tackle, but we passed up Everette Brown, Clint Sintim, and Connor Barwin for him. Is that really worth it? Who do we have to work with as far as OLB's go right now? The Vollmer pick is the one people are complaining about the most but I actually don't mind it a heck of a lot. He's a really, really good athlete and his upside is through the roof. He's a bit older, but that's going to mean he'll reach his potential a bit quicker. Should start at right tackle for us right away and be a damn good one for five year. Still, this draft really kind of sucks. We got players that fit our system. This much is true. But we also passed up a lot of talent to get some guys that aren't going to start for us for long. I'm disappointed that we dicked around as much as we did this year. Belicheck's trick work when you don't have a defense that's aging rapidly and has problem rushing the passer. Butler and Chung are legit pieces, but passing on a pass rusher or even a linebacker is a major mistake.

      When the Broncos took Ayers at 18 I was happy. When the Lions took Pettigrew I was very happy. When the Vikings took Harvin I was pretty much jumping around. I mean Oher, Maualuga and Brown where still there. Then I understand the first trade and at a push the second. The only thing that can be made of it is obviously Belichick didn't think either Brown or Maualuga where fits in the system

        I was truly at a loss for words yesterday and still am this morning. I don't mind Butler and Chung, its more so the players we had passed on. I think Butler could be an above average corner in this league however he will probably be buried on the depth chart this season behind the likes of spring/bodden/hobbs and the guys drafted last year . With that being said i do not question BB's scouting ability, esp. on the defensive side of the ball. I don't know about the rest of you but I myself know nothing about the OT we drafted. If BB wanted a T so bad why not take Oher at 23. I would have loved that pick. start Oher at RT eventually switching him to LT...im tired of seeing Light getting man handled by speed rushers.

        Heading in to this draft i think most fans could agree that a LB was one of if not the biggest need for this team. We have not addressed that. God forbid Thomas or Mayo get injured and have to miss a period of time - even if we land jason taylor.

        I just don't understand.....lets see what day 2 brings us.

        I give the Pats a day 1 grade of C-

          Ouch. I like the guys we got but question their draft position and really hate the guys we passed on.

          Several talented guys went by in the LB core. As mentioned, we seem to be thin at LB. BBand the staff must by very high on Guyton & Crable.

            They must be very high on Crable, Redd, Woods, TBC. Realistically no rookie could do as well as those guys most likely. Maul. and Oher....both are not known for intelligence. Oher needs a lot of reps to learn the playbook, has a learning disability..not to be mean but that might not fit here.

              I guess all I can say as far as day 1 is:
              I don't mind WHO we drafted- just WHERE we drafted and who we PASSED on
              You telling me we couldn't of grabbed that OT in the 3rd? 4th? *shrug*

                We're dicking around way too much. We need the talent this year, not depth like others. Can't afford to be doing this. Maybe I'm just not enough of a football god to see the brilliance in passing on talented players that fit our scheme, but I just have a hard time defending trading into next years draft every single year.


                All that said, I love the Tate pick. He could be an absolute stud for us if he's healthy. Instant impact player and he'll probably start at the slot for us this year. I suppose by that logic we've landed three starters in this draft, but we could have had even more....

                  I do like the trade of our 3rds for next years 2nds.
                  Essentially, we traded our 1st for 3 2nds

                  I don't like us trading E. Hobbs for 2 FIFTH rd picks?
                  That's the best we could get fom him? Or were we just trying to dump him?
                  And... I don't see our selections in THIS years draft.
                  Are they 2 2010 5th rd picks????

                        I agree it is a little strange but in all reality we traded out 4th or 5th CB and #2 KR(after Tate) for a project guard. With Bodden, Springs, Butler, Wheatley etc Hobbs wouldn't see much time this year.

                          I love the Hobbs trade, I've thought he's terrible for awhile, it clears up 2.5 mil in cap space immediately. Plus, he was in a contract year, and likely not have been resigned. This will give Butler Wheatley and Wilhite more playing time and gives us awesome youth at CB.

                              im just so mad. belichick is just throwing away our last few picks..... 3 dts? 3 ol? why not just trade up the picks to get higher in rounds 2 or 3 instead of throwing away your picks

                              Thanks to BoneKrusher for this amazing sig!
