    I do agree unless you are much higher on Loves ceiling than Stidhams.

    Adding Jackson, Mims & Parkinson to the offense would be a big boost. I'm a big fan of Mims and Parkinson, great red zone targets with great catch radiuses (good for an aging QB who is getting less accurate). I've seen games that Salvon Ahmed played, he's a good back that runs hard. Morgan has a very good arm, he'd be an interesting project.

    No offense meant, but I think Love MIGHT be the most overrated QB in this draft. Me personally, I rather roll with Stidham. Stidham was a 1st round value that we got in the 4th round. Love is a 3rd round value who will go in the 1st or 2nd round. Should be interesting to see who winds up being the better player.

    I LOVE Albert O as a prospect. Of all of the TEs, he's the most physically talented. He went from Drew Lock to a horrible QB this year.

    They compare his Arms to Allen he’s athletic and seems like a good kid.
    He has some shades of Mahomes, Watson.
    Somebody will take him in the first.
    Again Stidham was the second QB on my board last season behind Lock.
    I never saw a change of us getting Murray.

    Stidham reminds me of Jimmy G, quick release (maybe not as quick), but a slightly stronger arm.

    Good comparison for Love, he has some Watson in him, don't really see much Mahomes in him, though he is pretty accurate throwing on the run (not a running QB though).

    Stidhams release could improve with confidence in the system and confidence in his receivers.
    He throws a great ball but if you are BB and think Love could be a special talent you make that pick even if another position is weaker for a year or 2.
    My preference is sign Mariota And let him and Jarret fight it out

    Serious, non-snarky question: how much do you envision it would cost to sign Mariota?

    I think it depends on competitor for his services or if we see him as a starter if we see him as a starter 2 year deal 2 year deal 19 Million with a player option majority of the money front loaded.
    If we view him as open completion with Stidham I think 1 year 5.5 Million.

    Chad Reuter has an . . . interesting 3-rounder:

    Patriots trade down from 23 to 38 to let CAR draft Jordan Love. They get picks in 2021(!?!) for their trouble.

    Then . . .

    38. Jake Fromm, QB, Georgia (!)
    87. Anfernee Jennings, EDGE, Alabama
    98. Thaddeus Moss, TE, LSU
    100. Robert Windsor, DT, Penn State

    I do lot have Bryant on my draft board.

    but if kmet runs under a 4.7, then I would trade down into the early second round and take him. (Provides kinlaw and Espinoza are off the board at 23.)

    Epenesa didn’t have a great combine. That doesn’t worry me as much as weight. He was 279. Thought he was bigger than that. Looks like he’s going to be there at 23. I’d still take him. He’s a true junior. Not a 5th year guy. Should be able to get up to 295-300 in a year. May not be a plug and play pick. Neither was a guy like Ty Warren

    I read Michael Holley's book "Patriot Reign" a few years ago - I thought it was pretty good with some nice insights. It included one line I've never really forgotten that relates to drafting defensive players. BB was watching film on a DB who had an issue with missing tackles, and Belichick finally got disgusted watching the film and kind of scowled at the room "Don't show me a guy who can't tackle, because where will I play him?"

    The Patriots traditionally have a small draft board. I wouldn't be shocked if Delpit wasn't on it.

    Depends on how easily you think his tackling issues can be fixed. He never looked shy about contact to me, but his technique needs a lot of work. Lowers his head a lot and loses track of the ball carrier.
