is the pick
all i know is dude tore up the rose bowl. don't know much outside of that. but i'm fine with the positional pick.
See ya later Graham!
brilliant. just heard he long snaps. saves a roster spot. makes the pick worth it already.
Am I seriously the only one who has a problem with picking another TE on Day 1, when we already have 2 1st rounders at the position.
Meet the "new" Christian Fauria...
No defense of Day 1: That says a lot about the confidence of the Pats toward the youngs players at defense.
David Thomas . . . Texas . . . 6-3 . . . 252 . . . 1,367 career receiving yards
Brady must be ordering pizza for everyone! :rocker:
oh I'm sure someone else will be jaded by the decision
Mods please close repeat post
No A good pick Linbavkers on 2nd day
No, I totally agree with you. I am sure Thomas could have been had later in the draft, but third round?? C'mon. Dont throw the whole Logan Mankins crap at me either. When is Thomas going to get some playing time? Oh, and just because we drafted a TE that is better suited as an H-back does not mean Graham is gone. Who is that guy in Washington? Brunell always likes to hit him out of the backfield. I could see Thomas being that kind of guy.
bugger off post whore
Not sure why we want an undersized TE. This means Graham is in his last year, although I think we knew that.
The only defensive need position is getting younger at LB. We have lots of DBs who should be well rested off injuries last year, and 4 quality d-linemen. If Beisel can play ILB, we should be all set.
We were going to take a TE anyway. This guy is the real deal.
The RB, WR, TE pick was not how I invisioned the draft to go for us. But, the picks we made were excellent.
There are plenty of defensive goodies left for tomorrow when we have 7 more picks.
I think Brady is beyond Pizza's...he bought the OL plasma's last year and the year before Laptops...maybe he is passing out Raymond Weil watches!
I think its a terrible pick. In general I am very disappointed with day one of the draft.
I've watched probably 90% of the games he played at Texas. Trust me, he can play. He knows how to get open, has great hands, always makes the big 3rd down catches to extend drives, I've seen him make key blocks, etc. He's had many games like the one he had in the national championship against USC.
He doesn't have the athletic ability of a Vernon Davis or Ben Watson but he knows how to play football and he's just a good, solid player.
I don't think this means anything about the future of Graham. We had no 3rd TE, we all know how important TEs are to Belichick and there was a good one on the board.
on the nose
This has been an intriguing, entertaining, surprising, exciting and successful Day 1.
