Yeah, I liked the Ron Brace pick. Solid nose tackle who can keep Wilfork rested and is a fallback plan if they don't get his extension worked out blah blah blah. But, I was thinking even more about it. This year, tons of NFL teams are switching to the 3-4. Teams like the Broncos, Dolphins, Chiefs all need a nose tackle. Ron Brace was the 2nd best nose tackle in the draft. The 49ers were sitting there at 43 in need of a nose tackle. The Dolphins at 44 (I thought they would consider him at 25). Then, the Broncos were sitting at 48, and could have easily leap-frogged the Pats. Instead, the Patriots moved up to 40, leapfrogging 3 potential suitors for Brace, and as a result: Blocked several new 3-4 teams from getting their nose tackle. I wonder if blocking these teams had any bit to do with the Ron Brace selection. I'm not saying it had a lot to do with it, but I wonder if it crossed Belichick's mind. Thoughts?
