I happened to come across these comments about B. Carpenter in Mosely's column in the Dallas Morning News, if anyone's interested. It's way too early to make judgements, especially about a rookie making the transition to 3-4 ILB. But it is interesting in that much of the argument for drafting him was based on the idea that he could have started for and helped the Pats this year. Here's Mosely: "WhereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s all this hate coming from on Bobby Carpenter? Nardo writes, Ã¢â‚¬Å“Too bad you canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t pull up the archive and see that I told you months ago that Bobby Carpenter was a wasted pick! First-rounder on the bench not sniffing the field.Ã¢â‚¬ Nardo, I couldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t locate that particular file, but I trust that you said it. If the Greg Ellis experiment hadnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t worked, Carpenter would probably be starting at outside linebacker. The fact that CarpenterÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s playing inside doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t mean heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a bust. HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s not going be as dynamic as DeMarcus Ware, but IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m not sure any of us expected that. The kid hasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t looked great, but itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s way too early to write him off. If heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s still a backup next season, then weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll talk."
