    Another ******* Day 1 tight end? Thats the ONE thing I really hate about BB. What the hell use is this guy going to be to us? Make sure Fauria's old spot on the bench stays warm?

    He's not the Wendy's guy; this is one of the MacKenzie brothers.

    Seriously, this one is a real headscratcher when we have obviouls needs on defense.

    Here's measurables from si.com:

    David Thomas Grade: 3.64 Position: TE
    Class: Sr
    School: Texas
    Conference: Big Twelve
    Ht., Wt.: 6-3, 252
    40 Time: 4.74
    Selected by: New England Patriots
    Round 3, pick 22 (86 overall)

    [​IMG] BIO: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference and All-Academic honors since his junior campaign. Led Texas in receiving as a senior with 50/613/5 after 25/430/5 the prior year.

    POSITIVES: Athletic tight end who plays with a good degree of intelligence. Finds the open spot on the field and effectively uses his frame to shield away opponents. Has soft hands, makes the reception in stride and keeps the play in bounds. Possesses excellent field sense, gets past the sticks on third down and is always in tune with the quarterback. Gives effort as a blocker.

    NEGATIVES: Rarely moves linebackers off the ball blocking. Not a consistent deep threat.

    ANALYSIS: Lacking great upside, Thomas has been a consistent pass-catching threat who elevated his play the past three seasons. Should see significant playing time in third-down back/red-zone situations at the next level.

    WTF!?!?! A 239 lb TE.......................They always blow ass with their 3rd round picks. I think to them it must be a intentional good luck thing or something.

    I am. What the hell? Vrabes reportedly has been lobbying to go outside again. Looks like he's going to have to suck it up.

    There's a big party just about starting right now in the Banta-Cain household.

    Perhaps BB needed to poke Borges with a stick to instigate some more fun in the Sunday paper.

    Thats it!!!! Day one has been a total and complete bust!!! What the F@@@!? Wasn't even the best value at his position on the board. I had him figured for the 5th round!~

    With all of the live kitten eating animals out there, we pissed the best defensive day 1 in years completely away! Who are the Pats trying to become? The Dolts? The Rams?

    Maybe I'll become a Bears fan.....naaah, though they are now my fav. NFC team. Animals on D and just enough offense to grind the opponents D to the ground while killing clock, before the D goes back out and scores some more points. My kinda team. Just like us in 01. Thats all I want back, is our 01 team.

    David Thomas Draft Profile
    OVERVIEW

    David Thomas is about to establish himself as one of college football's premier tight ends in 2005. The All-Big Twelve Conference first-team selection teamed with Bo Sciafe in 2004 to produce 51 catches for 778 yards and seven touchdowns. Thomas is blessed with impressive athletic ability, good power and exceptional quickness for the tight end position. He has performed at the traditional tight end slot, as an H-back, slot receiver and at the "Y" receiver position, in addition to excelling on the punt coverage unit..............

    My take on it is this--which of these situations is more likely:

    (A) Belichick and Pioli know what they're doing, or
    (B) Belichick and Pioli ate a bunch of brownies mailed to them by Ricky Williams?
