    In 2003 we drafted Ty Warren with the pick we got for Bledsoe, the #19 pick the Patriots had from going 9-7 was traded to Baltimore for their 2004 1st rounder and 2003 2nd Rounder.

    The Baltimore Ravens selected Kyle Boller in 2003, and the Patriots selected Eugene Wilson in the 2nd, our starting Safety for 2 Super Bowl runs.

    In 2004 the Patriots selected #21 in Baltimore's position and happily drafted Vince Wilfork, who no one expected to be there.

    Well Baltimore, thanks for doing a deal with us for the Defensive player who made the biggest difference on field Sunday!! It is much appreciated

    All the haters comment about how terrible BB is at drafting. Guess they don't sit down and actually analyze the whole picture. BB usually trades down or out rather than bundle high picks to move up in drafts. I remember the draft when Wilfork dropped into their laps. Luckily BB had signed Dillon because I think Stephen Jackson was sitting there as well. :rocker:

    Oh ya, almost everyone to a man on this board was PRAYING that Stephen Jackson somehow dropped to #21. Then we traded for Dillon, and a few days later we are sitting there at #21 and both Wilfork and Jackson were available.

    At that point Wilfork as a no-brainer and just a ridiculously huge steal.
