    Rick Gosselin guarantees, "pencil it in," he'll be the rookie of the year. Hmm.

    Rick Gosselin's NFL draft analysis

    The Vikings are already planing on using him in the Wildcat offense. Vikings goin' wild(cat) with Harvin

    I have no idea if we were coveting him, as some have said, other than it fits the well-established pipeline that seems to lead from Gainesville to Foxborough. Did I say that wrong?

    As far as I know the Harvin-to-Patriots talk came solely from Brad Childress, who was convinced he'd outfoxed Belichick by drafting the kid. Personally, I'm not convinced -- the Pats showed no particular interest in Harvin before the draft, didn't draft any WR or RB, and a major character risk in round 1 is hardly their style. So maybe Childress heard something the public didn't...or maybe he got snookered.

    Childress and his comments had to have been the dumbest thing to come out of the post draft.

    As someone else said on here at the time - what's the best way to sell a draft pick to a fan base? Tell them the Pats were going to draft him had you not.

    Childress is playing the game.
