I thought Groves was going to be good but he's kind of a non-issue this season. I also liked Otah and Clady and both seem pretty good. What in the world happened to Glenn Dorsey?
I also thought Keller would bust.

I always felt that Wheatley would be very, very good, and sooner rather than later. If he hadn't gotten hurt, I doubt anyone would be talking about Hobbs and O'Neal right now.
Well, I still like Hobbs. But regarding Wheatley, where he was drafted signifies the Pats brass held him in high regard. And given the loss of Samuel, there's a strong possibility they felt Wheatley could compete for the starting slot and hopefully win it. The poor play of O'Neal represents a huge open door for Wheatley to walk through -- if he were available. Having seen him play in college, I seriously doubt he would allow 5 TDs in man-to-man coverage as O'Neal has. BTW, and just to stay on topic, Wheatley was my sleeper pick for the Pats, making him one of my favorite prospects overall. Others I liked were Cason, Avril, Crable, to name a few.
"What we want to try to do is maximize each spot on the roster; we want to be stronger at No. 1 than the opponent, stronger at No. 25 than they are, and stronger at No. 53 than they are, we're always looking to upgrade the talent level on the team, and play together to be functional."

i liked jonathan stewart but 7 and then 10 were to high for him. i'm not sure what number he went to carolina at but 14-20 seemed like the right range. losing that second first rounder hurt bad, especially after all our injuries.
john clayton is super chicken and doug gottlieb is a thief .
One thing that bothered me about Mc Fadden was how few clips I saw of him bouncing off the first tackler. Edit: I forgot to add that I haven't seen him play this season and it would be interesting to see how plays.
`Matt Ryan has turned out well. In a moment of unashamed boasting, I picked him for Miami in last year's Patsfans draft. I would love to tell you all that it was due to my extensive analysis... but that is clearly not true. I don't get to watch college football on telly, so I have to rely on youtube, draft highlights and so on.
However, it did come down to a few things. I kept reading about his "intangibles", his accuracy was pretty good and he throws a good ball. When I think about the best QBs in history, it's their intangibles and accuracy that mark them out. Ability to throw the ball 80 yards isn't a "must draft" quality IMHO.
I missed badly on Gholston and Dorsey, though.
