How would you have felt about the following 2011 draft? 1 Solder 2 Ridley 3 Dowling 4 Cannon 5 Mallett 6 M. Carter 7. M. Williams Looks good to me. How would you have felt about the following 2010 draft? 1 Gronkowski 2 Hernandez 3 McCourty 4 Spikes 5 Deaderick 6 Mesko 7 Cunningham Looks awesome to me. How would you have felt about the following 2009 draft? 1 Vollmer 2 Chung 3 Pryor 4 Edelman 5 Brace 6 Butler 7 Tate Looks good to me. 2008 was Mayo, Slater, and washouts. Not terrible, but with the #7 overall pick to play with not great either. 2007 was poor even considering the picks the Pats were left with after some awesome trades. But hey, the rest of the football world did vote Meriweather to a couple of Pro Bowls. 2006 was downright bad, with the only successes being an excellent kicker and a TE who flourished as a backup on another team. 2005 produced Mankins, Cassell, and three dubious starters (Hobbs, Kaczur, Sanders). That's good work. I worked from the lists on â€śCap is Crapâ€ť And Other Felger Fallacies (linked in another thread). I didn't count UDFAs and other young FAs such as Arrington, Fletcher, or Ninkovich.
