    and at such a key offensive spot to boot.

    I love defense as much as the next guy but let's not lose sight of the fact that this Patriots defense has had a ton of early picks tossed at its development the last 4 years.

    Code:
    2010	1 - Devin McCourty - CB
     	[b]2 - Rob Gronkowski - TE[/b]
     	2 - Jermaine Cunningham - LB
     	2 - Brandon Spikes - LB	
    2009	2 - Patrick Chung- S
     	2 - Ron Brace - DT
    	2 - Darius Butler - CB
    2008	1 - Jerod Mayo-	LB
     	2 - Terrence Wheatley - DB
     	3 - Shawn Crable- LB
    2007	1 - Brandon Meriweather - S
    It's about time the offense was given a similar injection of early drafted talent.

    I'm on board with replenishing the offensive trenches, but in general I disagree that we need to take more offensive players high. Receivers and RB's can be taken much later in the draft.

    This team had the #1 offense last year, even though it didn't take offense high for 4 straight drafts.

    ...with the premise of the thread or the Solder pick?

    What was it that Parcells said? There's only so many people in this world who are 300 lbs and can move (or something like that). Solder is one of them.

    Absolutely right. However, we still need to replace Neal!

    This entire draft is Offense oriented as BB has decided its time to rebuild the Offense since the Defense is pretty much completely rebuilt.
