well first off, i liked the 2009 drafting done by the pats. not only did we secure ourselves THREE 2nd round picks in 2010, but we also got some pretty good steals in the 09 draft as well. Pat Chung is a controversial pick, and obviously made in order to get another hard-hitting safety to replace rodney harrison, but i think Chung will prove to be a starter in a year or 2 and his special teams value will also be valuable (hard hitting and fast). Ron Brace was an excellent pick in my opinion, not only is he a big 6'3 330lbs nose tackle but his skills were put somewhat in the shadows of B.J. Raji, and with Vince Wilfork being a real a-hole and requesting a huge paycheck Brace will be an excellent replacement. Darius Butler was also a great pickup and was arguably the best corner in the draft, and with a very old Shawn Springs could be a great 2nd corner next to Leigh Bodden. Brandon Tate was also an incredible grab and was projected as a 1st rounder until he had a injury and after he is off the PUP list will be a great target for Brady.
No announcement yet.
