    ...when asked through the first two rounds, who has had the best draft...
    He said number one the New England Patriots. He said when you get who many feel was the best running back after Reggie Bush with the 21st pick, and then move up in Rd 2 to get the WR who half the teams had rated as the number one receiver, you've done very, very, well.

    Second he said was Denver.

    Ours looks good.

    Hate to say it, but the Jets look like they've had a really good draft. I really respect Jaws and he loves the QB they got, plus they added two really promising linemen.

    Props to the Broncos. They realized that the Snake will never get it done and then did an awful lot of maneuvering to get someone that can.

    I think we pulled one over on them with Jackson though. Walker and Jackson are similar in that they are both extremely talented, but won't be ready to contribute at a high level for at least one year. The Pats are just paying a fraction of the price.

    yeah not only did we pay less of a price, (picks and $wise) we forced the issue and gave them no other option by jumping ahead of them. I was really psyched when I watched that pick!

    On the other hand, If Butch Davis says we had a good draft I feel kind of uneasy about our draft. This is coming from a guy who took Gerrard Warren over Seymour and LT, as well as superstars like William Green, Jeff Faine, and Kellen Winslow Jr.

    I'd hate to have to feed those 4; they are about 1200lbs before NFL Beefing up.

    Sure they have, they talked about both of our picks. Briefly, I'll grant you.

    Yeah, about 3 hours ago. In the meantime they've broken down Indy, Baltimore, Tennessee ad naseum.

    This means a lot considering who well Butch Davis was at grading draft talent.

    Jaws and you are right! I love the QB they got. Saw him at the combine, and he really stood out. Very accurate frozen ropes. Did better that the supposed stars. Clemens was a smart pick. The have a left OT for a decade and the best center. I even like the Ohio St. ILB they picked. Slow, but a football player.

    I am not disagreeing with him, but brilliant mind he is not.

    Even more praise

    Coach Davis just re-iterated his praise of the Pats draft including Dave Thomas as a player the NE fans will love. High praise indeed! We be livin large already and we have our day 2 wizards ready to kick @ss! Plus we screwed Denver by drafting Jackson...gotta love it!

    Mel Kiper on SportsCenter just had the Pats as his Day One winner. He said each pick had great value and he expected all three draftees to make significant contributions to the team in their rookie seasons. :rocker:

    Contrary to NEM, I don't believe that Leinhart is over-rated. I think Leinhart will be a solid, if not unspectacular, QB who will get playing time when Warner goes down to his yearly injury. And only if/when he beats out John Navarre.

    What I found telling, today, was that Dennis Green gave Davey NO CHANCE of being the #2 or #3 QB for the Cards.

    Personally, I think San Francisco has had the best draft so far, followed by the Pats, and then the Giants.
