    Here's a portion of what he said...

    Picks of the draft

    01:00 AM EDT on Sunday, May 28, 2006

    The Dallas Morning News' Rick Gosselin lists the picks he thinks were the best value in each round of the NFL draft.

    ROUND ONE

    LAURENCE MORONEY, RB, PATRIOTS: Corey Dillon has hit the wall as an NFL running back. Maroney has the big-back size Bill Belichick likes (5-11 1/2, 217) and the durability to carry the ball 20 to 25 times per game. He'll ease the offensive burden on Tom Brady for years to come.

    Gosselin picked out three of the players that I loved in the pre-draft workup: Richard Marshall in the second, who I wanted for the Pats, Mark Anderson in the 5th, who I wanted for the Pats, and Tim McGarigle in the 7th, who I wanted for the Pats. I cant believe any of them fell as far as they did.

    He divided his logic into thirds. I'm hoping he's only two thirds right and Corey being done isn't part of Maroney's added value just yet.

    Did you notice that Gosselin also said, "Any player off that 2005 Alabama defense is a good pick"? Since we have one of the Tide's starting LB's, Freddie Roach, Gosselin has indirectly pimped the Pats a second time! :rocker:
