Since 2008 we've got: Jerod Mayo Devin McCourty Patrick Chung Ras-I Dowling Myron Pryor Sebastion Vollmer Nate Solder Aaron Hernandez Rob Gronkowski Julian Edelman Taylor Price Brandon Tate (good player, but no room for him) Zoltan Mesko Mathew Slater Jermaine Cunningham Brandon Spikes ^^^^verdict is still out on both of them We've also picked up alot of good UDFA.... Danny Woodhead Benjarvus Green-Ellis Dane Fletcher Gary Guyton That's 9 definite starters, plus another 8 that play prominent roles on our team. And I didn't even mention the 2 RB's we drafted this year that could become key pieces to the Offense. Then you have guys like Cunningham, Spikes, Taylor Price. They could start any week, or atleast have potential to become starters in the next year or two. Not bad for just 4 draft classes. I challenge you to find another perennial Playoff team that's added that many contributing players to their team since 2008.
