    I can't believe all the grousing about the Pats' day one draft. What's not to like?

    Second best RB in the draft -- a guy who can backup Dillon (running the ball) and Faulk (catching it out of the backfield). Seems like this pick fills a need.

    Very productive wide receiver. Guys, Jackson had 89 catches last year. Best hands in the combine. Excellent route runner, smart kid. I don't see any reason why he can't replace David Givens, at far less money.

    Very productive TE from a national championship college team. Fauria is gone. We need a third tight end who can replace his effectiveness in the red zone and, ideally, play special teams. This kid is a productive pass catcher, loves playing special teams, loves football, works hard. What's not to like in filling the third tight end role?

    Hw, you've shown excellent acuity in past posts.

    In this one you say basically two things:
    we fans are "grousing" ... and
    the 2nd and 3rd picks are pretty good.

    Well, you muffed one of them.
    With few, rare exceptions ... the fans i'm reading are even more elated than you let yourself show!

    There are 2 posts on the front page wondering why people are angry.

    There are zero posts of angry people.

    Why not just enjoy that the Pats drafted high at the glamour positions for a change instead of looking to gloat?
