A couple of patterns that I find interesting, with the caveat that BB and SP could easily change all of their patterns, and have in the past. - The only non-BCS players the Patriots have drafted in the first three rounds in the Belichick era are all offensive linemen. Logan Mankins (Fresno State - 1st round, 2005) Nick Kaczur (Toledo - 3rd round, 2005) Adrian Klemm (Hawaii - 2nd round, 2000) - The last college corner Bill Belichick drafted in the first two rounds? Eugene Wilson. Draft picks in the first four rounds by position since 2000: QB - 1 (Davey) RB - 3 (Redmond, Cobbs, Maroney) WR - 3 (Branch, Johnson, Jackson) TE - 5 (Holloway, Graham, Watson, Thomas, Mills) OT - 5 (Klemm, Randall, Light, Jones, Kaczur) OG - 1 (Mankins) OC - 0 Total Offense: 18 DT - 5 (Seymour, Warren, Klecko, Wilfork, Brown) DE - 2 (Green, Hill) LB - 0 CB - 4 (Williams, Wilson, Samuel, Hobbs) S - 4 (Scott, Reid, Sanders, Meriweather) Total Defense: 15 K - 1 (Gostkowski) So, history says we can probably cross McKelvin, Rogers-Cromartie, Gholston, and Rivers off our list.
