People are often critical of the Pats drafting 3 of the last 4 yrs, the exception being last season, especially when it comes to the 2007 draft. But this seems to validate why the Pats traded out of Rds 2 and 3 that season.

A Study of the 2nd and 3rd Round Misses
By: Joey Roberts
Draft analysts always talk about how you can truly grasp a team’s draft class after the players have had three years of experience. It’s interesting to see 2nd rounder’s such as: Sidney Rice, Steve Smith and David Harris and 3rd rounder’s like Jacoby Jones and Mike Sims-Walker come into their own and prove the validity of the “Three Year Theory”. However, it’s more interesting to discover that in the 2007 draft class only 72% of the 2nd rounder’s and 63% of the 3rd rounder’s were given an opportunity to prove their worth to the team that drafted them.
