    I love this kid. Strong feeling he will contribute substantially out of the gate.

    Whomever suggested an RG3 deal would creat a domino effect may have been onto something. Glad to have him Donta aboard.

    He plays a violent game and he has a plethora of experience in the system. He can play ILB (where he's most suited, IMO) or OLB. He'll be our biggest impact rookie this season while Jones gets his berrings under him.

    Yup.

    Well, they are in good position to roll some $$ over and re-sign Carter.

    Mayo, Hightower and Spikes.

    Dear Lord!

    It still hasn't completely hit me.

    If Dowling is healthy, this D will be great for several years. They will be just one stud Safety away.

    I think rookies are suppose to report to the Pats camp tomorrow. Whatever the cause, this is good as our picks won't be behind the learning curve.

    This debate between Bayless and Mangini re: Hightower is pretty hilarious:

    Grading The Patriots First Round - YouTube

    As always, Bayless speaks in vague generalities while clearly having no idea wtf he's talking about, while Mangini lends real insight (what you can do on defense is largely dictated by your slowest learner) and points out that, if Saban thought that Hightower was better than Upshaw, then he probably knows what he's talking about.

    Another piece to the puzzle. The more of those we have, and the more different things they can do, the more creative Bill can get. BB is at his best when he can get a little creative.
