    I mean this just kills me. How many TE's does one team need. I mean are we going to select a Defensive player at all?

    he wont play TE. He will be our new Sam Gash / Larry Centers. Great offensive weapon from the FB position.

    Relax

    Hope one of the two is good enough to be a contributor. Mills is also a FB and could be a Pass replacement also. Could be a special teams contributor also.

    I have to agree. Rounds 1 & 2, great picks, mind boggling there after. So far I give this draft a C+. I would have preferred Darnell Bing the safety from USC over TE Dave Thomas from Texas in round 3. If BB has his heart set at drafting a pass catcher in round three, Maurice Stovall was there for the taking. A big receiver who pretty much knows the system already. Can you imagine Deion Branch, Chad Jackson, and Maurice Stovall in our 3 receiver st with Graham and Watson at TE, with Faulk or Maroney/Dillon out of the backfield ?? Geez, that would have been unstoppable. Instead we take a TE who granted, was the top target for Vince Young, and who some publications say has the best hands of the TE's available, but it still didn't make sense. He is also described as nothing more than an H-Back due to his lack of size and blocking skills.

    Round 4, Garrett Mills ?? TE or FB, we didn't need this, but yet again, if BB felt we needed another pass catcher, what about Jason Avant from Michigan. Granted, we did need to replace Fauria, but with two guys that projected later than picked (Mills was projected 7th rounder/FA). We totally ignore defense, when we could have picked guys like Bing, Parham, etc.

    Don't get me started on the kicker. You mean to tell me he wouldn't have been available in round 7 or as a FA ?

    Regardless of what BB spews to the media, he is pulling the wool over everybody's eyes. He definately drafted for need the last two years, not the best player available. Mankins,Kaczur, Jackson, and the kicker were all needs, though Jackson was the best available receiver, but definately drafted for need.



    Then round 4, another

    BB has never said that the Pats don't draft for need, what he consistently says is that "we will draft the best player available for our team" or "...for what we do."

    Who do you think the Jets are going to take with the first overall pick next spring?

    Regarding TEs, Graham's contract is up soon, and we have only 2 TE's on the roster. Way too low for the amount we run the 2TE set. Also, Mills is an H-back AND a potential ST standout. I have no problem with the picks at all.

    I'm not a koolaid type either... I look at the facts. Last year's draft, in the first four rounds, generated 3 eventual starters and a darn good backup S in Sanders. Plus we got a QB that is as close to a Brady-type steal as you could find (IMHO). They've got a darn good draft track record since 2001.

    Ha ha ha.

    Good catch.

    I think that 4-12 doesn't feel good, but after next season, 4-12 will look a lot better.

    So, yesterday I point out that we took no defensive impact, everyone is saying, hey, wait until tommorow we will get help in day 2, now our first 3 picks no defensive help. Now the song is that we can improve through FA. June 1st is not a bonanaza day anymore. Teams will be cutting people not worth the money anymore. So we are going to grab someone from a pool of end of too old or not good to begin with.

    Our depth at LB, the heart of the D is so thin you can read the newspaper through it. The FO have ignored that for better then two years. We have done nothing in FA or the draft to fix that. I think that is a problem and am not going to grab onto any straw available. I had a lot of enthusiasm for this year going into the draft, but IMO this draft has been a disappointment.

    In our opinion YOU area tremendous disappointment. You DO NOT understand the BB/Pioli philosophy and you are at least the MOST MORONIC IDIOT PATS FAN EVER to be crying about being disappointed with a Super Bowl wiun and a 2nd round appearance the past two years.


    Again, you either are some dweeb looking for a winning team to follow, to boost your pathetic self esteem, OR you're a closet Jet fan. BTW nitwit, you seem to overlook the signing of the BEST DEFENSIVE LINEMAN IN THE NFL when you start shooting off your idiotic mouth about "we didn't do anything with the defense". Average the age of the defense and get back to us about how old it is....and BTW...please walk out into rush hour traffic you blind as a bat Mr. Magoo
