As we wave goodbye to Chad Jackson, has anyone else paused to speculate whether BB was swayed too much by his time with Urban Meyer in Florida? Remember all the reports of him hanging out with the Gators, soaking it all in? Then the Pats drafted two of those Gator players, which was seen at the time as a clear, direct offshoot of his visits there. And neither of those players panned out. Which got me thinking...Rohan Davey and Marquise Hill came from LSU with a push from good pal Saban. Hmm, maybe we could get by with a little less help from our friends. But then we wouldn't have Logan Mankins and...who? Would anybody like to pitch in on an analysis of the Patriots' "friends and family" picks? Do the "pipelines" we love to talk about here really help, or hurt?
