Last year Laron Landry signed a 5 year 41.5 mil dollar contract as the #6 pick. This year Asante Samuel signed a 6 year 57 mil dollar deal as a free agent. If the Patriots dont want to pay Asante who has proven himself in the Pats system why would they want to pay an unproven rookie almost the same money?? I would be SHOCKED if they took a CB with the #7 pick, it makes no sense to let a proven vet leave for $$ reasons then sign a rookie to a similiar contract at the same position. I dont think BB values CB as a position that should take up a significant portion of cap space, esp in our zone schemes. CB is a much more important position under a scheme that relies on a press/man scheme. I think the only positions worth picking very high in the top of the draft ( due to contracts ) are LT, QB, a STUD DL or a STUD OLB. If we are going to keep our pick I want to grab a freak athlete ( Gholston, Long etc ) players that you can never get in later rounds.
