I like to post this every year before the draft. I don't think it's worked yet but I'm still going to give it a shot. At this point I think BB and Pioli have proven their abilities of selecting talent in the 1st round. Every 1st rounder they have taken has become a key part of our team. It doesn't mean they'll be dead on right every single time but they've proven to be excellent with their top picks. With so many different names being mentioned on this board the past few months, someone is going to be disappointed when a certain player's name isn't called. Does this board have to get crazy like it does every single year? People wig out because we passed on someone or we took someone too high or we didn't need that player......so on and so on. Again, show me when the Pats have been proven wrong in the 1st round under Belichick and then criticize all you want. Until then, I think we owe them a "wait and see" stance. I'll admit, in 2004 I was a bit disappointed we took Wilfork over Steven Jackson. I understood that Wilfork was better for the team but I loved Jackson so much I still wanted him. I'm sure some Texans fans are feeling the same way. Some I'm sure know Williams is better for them long term but are still bummed they won't be watching Reggie Bush at Reliant Stadium for the next decade. I've seen people give infatic Fs for the Patriots first day, only to "cool down" by Sunday and talk about how smart and good the Patriots picks were. Hey, I'm not saying you can't complain or anything, just think about what we've done over the last five years for a second before starting a ranting thread. Also, if the Patriots take somone that a certain draft website didn't have rated to go until the 2nd round, it's OOOOOOKKKKKKKKKK! Like I posted a couple weeks ago, Branch was the 17th rated WR projected to go in the late 6th round. Who here would like to go back and risk losing out on him to get better "draft value." Lee Evans was supposed to be there when we made our 2nd pick in 2004 and he went very high to Buffalo. It sure doesn't look like a mistake. I know it's real easy to get so excited about the possibilities of draft day that anything different seems to be the wrong choice. Let's just relax, enjoy the day and watch the Pats continue to build a great football team.
