http://www.projo.com/patriots/content/projo_20060423_23pats.311d182.html A nice review by Curran - though one that we've effectively researched for him in past years leading up to the draft (in our Best and Worst Draft pick threads) Curran does have some fun with the topic though, suggesting his "PICKS WITH NAMES SUITED FOR OTHER ENDEAVORS" Just one question though - Leonta Rheams, Actor? What the hell does he mean by that? (Do Tom Curran and Tom Brady have something in common besides their first names?) One other thing I found intersting was that Curran, like everyone, slams Chris Canty as a draft bust (he was) but then goes on to say he wasn't as bad as everyone believed. He also says that Chris Canty is a perfect illustration of why you should never draft based on need. I say Chris Canty is a perfect illustration of why you shouldn't let idiots run your draft board. He was the friggen 6th CB taken in the 1st round... certainly not worth an over-reach - maybe not even a 2nd rounder. There's nothing wrong with factoring "need" highly into the equation as long as you're not doing something stupid like taking the 10th best guy at his position in the 1st round. So I think Curran's wrong about using Canty as a poster boy for those who say "take the best player" without considering need. The "best player" is subjective - "need" generally is not. You can miss on the "best player" premise as well - and there are numerous Patriots - and even BB - examples of that.
