Gronkowski is much better than Keller, that's not even really a comparison. LT's better than Woodhead for now, but by next year he won't be. Revis is better than McCourty, although if I had to take one of them straight up, with their contracts, I'd think long and hard about taking McCourty. In fact, I'd take four more years of McCourty on a rookie contract over Revis' holdout contract (which he'll probably hold out from again in a year or two). Besides, I wouldn't be surprised if, within a year or two, McCourty is a comparable player. For now, though, Revis is the sure thing. You can make a better case for that with rookie CBs who only started for a half season, or mostly played in the nickel, where there isn't much film on them. But McCourty played 95% of the Pats' defensive snaps this year- there's plenty of film on him at this point. This isn't going to be another Antonio Cromartie scenario. I dunno how much you've seen of McCourty, but there isn't really anything there to exploit. His only exploitable weakness is that he's made some rookie mistakes, biting on double moves and stuff. He's come very far in that regard, though. Mangold is better than Koppen (TMQ's MVP!) Moore is better than Connolly at RG your RBs are collectively better than ours Revis is better than McCourty Cromartie, while terribly overrated and one-dimensional, is still probably better than Arrington. Once Bodden's healthy, this will no longer be the case (next year) Shaun Ellis is better than anyone that we currently have at DE. Once Ty Warren's healthy, this will no longer be the case (next year). Mayo is better than either of your starting ILBs, but they're both better than Spikes/Guyton, for now at least. Pace is better than whoever we're lining up at ROLB in a given week I'd say that just about does it, and FWIW I expect that list to be much smaller next year. Even that doesn't fully capture the disparity, since the Pats' depth is also orders of magnitude better pretty much across the board. That's the benefit of us having more young, talented players, and having three times as many round 1-3 picks as you guys do.
