    The first thing that struck me was that they are posting a new mock draft every 60 minutes, all week long. I guess that's one way they can say 'see, I told you so' after the draft!

    I guess sarcasm was wasted on you.

    That was a great read overall.

    I agree with pretty much all of it.

    I especially like the "Sack Man" story. IIRC, Brady himself was asked in 2005 what would have happened if he had been a first-round pick (i.e., pressure to start immediately) instead of a sixth-round pick (i.e., time to learn behind Bledsoe).

    His response was that he'd either be on his third team by now, or out of the league entirely.

    Luckily for whomever the Pats draft, there will be little pressure to start him on day one.

    I didn't like it because it didn't start with "the Patriots are going to trade for Peppers". :D

    A lot of wisdom in this article. Good to keep in mind while reading about various draft guesses.
