We gave up a 2004 4th round pick for Ted Washington before the 2003 season. He wasn't even on the team anymore by the time the 04 draft came around. Two players taken shortly after that pick were Jerricho Cotchery and Nathan Vasher. I don't think anyone here is going to complain about that decision. We gave up a 2nd round pick for Corey Dillon in that same draft. I don't think anyone here regrets that decision. So that being said, I can't understand how so many are going ape over the fact that we gave up a 2nd and 7th for a 25 year old that is cut from the mold that the Patriots love their WRs to be. He's improved every year he's been in the NFL. He looks ready to break out. Again, he's 25 and we're going to lock him up long term. Any 2nd rounder we got could only be signed to a 4 year deal and there is no guarantee that he would work out. If he did, there's less guarantee that we could re-sign him. Again, I just don't get it. It'd be nice to still have that 60th pick, I'm not going to lie. However, it's worth it. Welker should have an immediate impact and be a good player for us for years.
