    I think we should call this the skilll position draft.

    BB/SP have decided that with the trenches well addressed in the past few drafts, it was time to address the so called skill positions.

    Consider the Patriot Skill positions after this offseason:

    QB: Tom Brady Probowler SB MVP
    Doug Flutie long time NFL starter and CFL Grey Cup champ
    Matt Cassel a developmental QB find; QB rating over 100 as rookie

    RB: Corey Dillon 2nd round franchise back and probowler
    Kevin Faulk 2nd round All SEC and best 3dn back
    Laurence Maroney 1st round and 2nd best back in 2006 draft

    FB: Garrett Mills 4th round first rated FB and H back
    Patrick Pass jack of all trades

    TE: Dan Graham 1st round & complete TE
    Ben Watson 1st round & great speed
    David Thomas 3rd round & great hands will grow and develop blocking

    WR: Deon Branch 2nd round & SB MVP
    Reche Caldwell 2nd round and potential #1 quality
    Chad Jackson 2nd round & potential #1 quality with great speed
    Bethel Johnson 2nd round & great speed & feared KR
    Troy Brown ex-probowler fading vet

    Across the board the skill positions are now well fortified. We can expect a former ex-starter vet to augment the QBs should Flutie retire.

    BB/SP have decided that game changing plays are made by well above average skill position players, and they have gone and stocked up there as well as the trenches.
