I have wasted alot of time looking at all the 1st round sexy picks in this draft ... and none of them really make alot of sense. Not much difference once you get past the Long's and Dorsey Really. If Belichick cannot find a trade partner then I say he takes McFadden. Belichick can wisely use the #7 pick as a #3 pick IMO. If he's at bat with Ryan and McFadden ripe for the picking you know teams will be calling like mad. McFadden makes alot of sense for alot of reasons. He's a great back and he's also a competant receiver. Belichick could employ 3 wideouts and 2 backs in the backfield ... almost every down and have 4 receivers. If Belichick puts McFadden and Faulk in the backfield he effectively has either 3 receivers and 2 xtra blockers or he has 5 receivers with 3 of them in the 5-15 yard range. Call me crazy .. but great teams are built on value and McFadden along with the 2 Long's and Dorsey = maximum value. It's not a reach to say that McFadden has the greatest value of all in the draft. The Patriots are lucky that all above them have greater needs ... a McFadden may not be available to us for the next 10 years. If someone moves ahead of us to grab McFadden or if Atlanta does not grab him he will be ours and the league will be in trouble for the next 5 years. McFadden and Maroney ... Moss - Welker - Jackson/Gaffney ... OUCH!!!
