1.) The more I read about the NFL draft the more I think that all a person like me (who does not watch one college football game or pay for draft-related information) needs is to read Rich Gosselin's draft-related articles. Once again, his Top 100 list was the most accurate and his mock draft was among the most accurate. 2.) The Steelers, the defending SB champs, helped themselves a great deal. I do not think that anyone had a draft good enough to overtake the Steelers as the #1 team. 3.) I love the trade up for Chad Jackson. 4.) Given the track record of rookie wideouts and Florida wideouts, I do not expect Jackson to perform as a top #2 until the latter half of the 2007 season. 5.) Would anyone trade a 4th round pick in 2006 for a 6th round pick in 2007?? Well, the Pats used a 4th round pick in 2006 to replace Adam. It is likely that in 2007 that the Pats will receive a 6th round compensatory pick for the loss of Adam. Would anyone trade a 3rd round pick in 2006 for a 4th round pick in 2007???Well, the Pats used a 3rd round pick in 2006 to replace Givens. It is likely that in 2007 that the Pats will receive a 4th round compensatory pick for the loss of Givens. My point is that while it is great to receive compensatory picks to help offset the loss of free agents but please do not forget that the loss of free agents forces teams to then fill needs with unproven draft picks. 6.) In a conference with Brady, Manning, Palmer, and Big Ben, the Mario Williams selection makes a lot of sense to me. 7.) This draft makes reading Mrs B's TC reports very necessary. 8.) If Graham wants to be the #1 TE in a team's offense, then this year will be his last as a Patriot. 9.) Bethel Johnson is my choice for the player that will create the most posts in a "Will he make the team" thread. 10.) I am surprised that the secondary was not addressed until the 7th round. 11.) I was very surprised that the Patriots did not select a linebacker. 12.) I am disappointed that I now have to tell my wife that her Greek God, Fauria, was replaced by a Day 1 pick 13.) I think that my wife will say that David Thomas is a downgrade in the looks department.
