    He's good. DraftHuddle said he was almost 1st round material.

    Jason Taylor like guy, very strong against the run too.

    And maybe Wesley Woodyard for a SS trainee.

    Yeah, almost first round material - just missed it by 6 rounds. Want more evidence to ignore draft sites/magazines?

    I would bet he has injury concerns and/or character concerns.

    He must have huge injury concerns or huge character problems, or might not be that good.

    You're dreaming like I am that the Patriots will sign some

    highly ranked players who were not drafted.

    ROFL a 1st round player who is a UDFA... can we say gullible?

    You know what... I also missed being a 1st round pick by 7 rounds... I must have turned in my name too late for submission, just like that guy!! :p

    Once again, you reveal yourself to be a douche. A blow hard - know it all who knows nothing.

    Tell us again how BB wouldn't make a trade if it didn't conform to some guy's "chart". Because he wouldn't want to look like a panic seller. And like he wasn't getting "fair value", whatever that is. Remember that? Your post was full of snide insults. I remember PatChick schooled you on your illogic and you went away tail between your legs, never to come back. Clown.

    That's what one INDEPENDENT scout who publishes his own ratings said. I didn't say he's first round, I've only seen him play once. Some guys drop, but it's rare to have a guy UDFA unless it's injuries. Other sites have him as more 3rd/4th rounder.

    Well, I guess I'm gullible too. Robertson was my sleeper pick at the DE/OLB position. He was among Avril and Crable as my favorite options after round one.

    NFLDraftscout had him projected as a 2-3 round pick. Kiper, at one time had him in his top 25.

    No doubt his injury played a role in him not being drafted, as he was unable to work out at the Combine and Pro Day, nor did he have any private workouts. But still, there's enough film on him to think he'd be drafted (considering his projection). So it remains a mystery as to why he wasn't.

    I've certainly been wrong about many prospects before, but as a sleeper pick...let's just say I'm extra curious as to what the real scoop may be :)confused:).

    BTW -- the Cowboys just signed him.

    Actually the Pats DID get FAIR value by trading from #7 to #10 for a 3rd round pick. Check the official draft VALUE chart. Thanks. :)

    http://www.nfldraftcountdown.com/features/valuechart.html

    I also correctly predicted, before the 2nd day, that the Pats had no use for THREE 3rd round draft picks and would likely trade one of them for a future 2nd rounder. This is exactly what happened with their first pick of day 2. Again the Pats got VALUE for their picks. Here's a napkin to wipe the pie off your face. :)


    LOL, let me get this straight. You're taking credit for someone else's argument about draft value to make yourself sound smart... And that argument actually disproved nothing that I said before, since it turns out that all my value predictions were correct. IE BB will not give up 50 cents value on the dollar just to trade down. Nice one! Thanks and come again!

    LOL. Nice backpedaling. From a surefire 1st rounder, to a 3rd/4th round pick, to UDFA. Nice. I could say more, but you've already done enough damage with your own admissions. Have a nice day! :p

    Toot....Toot....Toot.

    hear that....that is the sound of you tooting your own horn. Wow that is a bold perdiction you made there.

    Before the draft I predicted the pats would make a draft day trade, and I was right I must be the smartest person in the world right?

    I'
    She made the exact same arguement I did. You shut up when she repeated what I said.

    I don't know the guy personally. I have no dog in the fight. YOu're the ass who said "talk about gullible!". Well then I guess alot of draft forecasters are, because THEY picked him to go in the 3rd or 4th (with ONE saying he had first round talent). I was just repeated what THEY said.

    "Gee I almost got picked in the first round too!". No, you didn't. Did you start for 3 years for a division 1 team? No. Did you get picked by numerous draft boards to be drafted? No. So you're a douche bag. Get it?

    You're value predictions weren't right at all. YOU said BB would never accept less than full trade value for moving out of a #1 or #2 or whatever slot. I said (and Patchick repeated) that he would take the BEST offer he got, whether he thought that was picking at that spot or trading for the offer he got. The pats were never in a position to get less than 'full trade value' by moving down out of the top tier to the middle or end of the round. So it was a moot point.

    They moved 3 spots for a 4th rounder. So you're right! BB is a creature who obsesses about what clowns like you and some draft chart thinks of his picks.

    YOU said (in complete idiocy) that he would look at the value chart and wouldn't want others to think he got 'taken' or was 'stupid' or was 'panic selling' and thus would keep a pick he didn't really want instead of taking a trade he did if such trade didn't agree with the value chart. Just complete idiocy. When has he ever shown any concern over what others thought of his value considerations?

    No way!! He traded one of his 3 3rd rounders!! You are a effing genius for sure.

    Have a nice day? Yeah, some internet ass clown ruined my day.
