    The student beats the teacher once again. Revis AND Harris ?? Sheesh, what good is it having 2 #1's if all you do is trade them every year for the future. The future is now !!! Terrible draft, the Pats let all the good ones get away. Buffalo (Lynch & Poz) & the Jets, one #1 each, and both still way better draft than ours. Very disappointing. You guys can spin this anyway you want, but we are getting schooled by everyone. Harris will be a monster for the Jets and make us rue the day we didn't draft him. Very Very bad.

    Scott99, can you tell me how many picks the Jets have left this year?

    Can you tell me how many the Pats have?

    The Jets traded all the rest of their picks with the exception of a 7th Rounder. I liked Harris, but not that much.

    If these players are so great don't you think we would have picked them? Get a clue, you sound like a dork.

    I think the Jets are stupid. They have 2 picks left in the 6th and 7th round. Way to go Mangina.

    Scott think about what you wrote even in the first round 1/3 of the players are of NFL by year 3 , of the remaining 1/3 become backups and only 1/3 are starter.

    After the first this ratio crashes down to nothing and yet you make a bold prediction in a way that has me dumbfolded.

    Have you already forgotten about the Pats' free-agent signings? And next year when we have a pick in the high 20's and another in the low-teens to single digits in a much richer draft?

    Calm down.

    I'm not sure how good their draft is. They gave up their entire draft for two players. I hope they work out for them. We still have 9 picks left and one of them is in the 3rd round. Don't tell me that you can't find good players on day two of the draft. We Patriot fans of all people should know better.

    Re: WOW, we had 2 #1's, and yet the Jets have had a ten times better draft than us...

    Wow, great, we have a bunch of #6 picks that won't even make the team.

    It's quality, not quantity. The pats will have only two Day 1 picks. And they'll have two in the 4th. Everything outside of that is pretty much a crap shoot.

    Meanwhile, the Jets have taken two good players who will help them challenge for the division this year.

    Draft picks only have value when you use them.

    I guess its just frustrating as a fan bc we have all seen what happens when the Pats actually use their two first round picks -- they end up with two good players.

    heh, how'd the student do vs the master the last time they met in a game?

    spin what? we filled a need at S, Merriweather will be a beast in the form of Rodney Harrison for years to come. And apparently they didn't think Harris was worth it. My guess is you were one of those complaining when they selected Seymour instead of the WR that everyone wanted too. Remind me again how that worked out.

    Honestly, what a spaz. Relax. Go draft Emmit Smith in your fantasy league.

    Not even! They just traded their 6th away.

    The Patriots have NINE picks left. NINE!

    I do have to say that looking at what is left and will be available during our glut of picks in r 4-6 I really am concerned that there are no impact players and possible it will be tough to find a kid who can make the team.

    Actually, NFL network says that they only have a 7th round pick left.

    One of which they reached for with half of their picks as the cost, and one of which the Pats decided to pass on.

    Main Entry: im¬∑pa¬∑tience [​IMG]
    Pronunciation: (")im-'pA-sh&n(t)s
    Function: noun
    : the quality or state of being impatient

    Past success doesn't guarantee future results. This draft is completely different from last year's draft, and it will be completely different from next year's. Just because the Pats had 2 firsts in 2004 and they worked out doesn't mean the same will happen this year.

    I have complete trust in Beioli when they say they feel the best value were in the trades. How many times do we have to go through this? How many Lombardi's do they have to hoist?

    When you say student beats teacher again, you make it sound like it happens alot. Harris is a 2 down LB who was considered a 6th round talent before the combine etc., Revis is decent but not considerd a champ bailey type. Merriweather could be a stud playmaking saFETY , AND HAVE A TOP 15 PICK NEXT YEAR.

    If they had used two first round picks in 2003, we wouldn't have had the pick that we got Wilfork with in 2004.

    It goes both ways.

    I think the fact the BB Pioli didn't care enough to even try to get Harris or Woodley tells us all we need to know about how good they think those two are. WE might have wanted them, fine, but it's not like the PAts were hamstrung and had no WAY of making those transactions happen. Belichick obviously didn't think they were worth it - otherwise, we had the ammo to do it and would have.

    Good point.

    Oh well. At least people can stop the talk now that BB is loading up for one final run and then retiring. :)

    Harris a 6th round talent, lmao shut up. Thats beyond stupid.

    We have 9 picks, in rounds where the odds of finding a diamond in the rough is little to none. I'm not gonna sit here and pile on all day, but you can't say we've done better than the Jets. You just cant. They found two impact players, we found one.

    We traded our first for a first next year to a team on the up rise. How much you want to bet were picking in the same spot as this year? You watch.

    I think Revis and Harris are good picks, but basically mortgaging almost your entire draft on these guys isn't really smart drafting. One guy is a bust and you have had a horrible draft unless the other turns into an All Pro.

    Please go away and come back after two things happen:

    1) you do some research and tell me what players we ended up with in the years we had our 2 #' 1's.

    2) When the draft is actually over - when you can actually begin to rate it.

    Who cares, the talent will be 90% gone by the time the Pats pick again.
