Not to disrespect special teams play, even in this era of diminished importance for it, but neither Jones nor Tate was drafted to be a special teams player. They were drafted to be positional players, and they busted out on that, which is at least part of why neither stayed with Patriots for his full rookie deal. Whether or not they can play special teams is irrelevant to whether or not they were busts, unless ST is the only thing they were drafted for. A guy like Nate Ebner would be different. He was drafted to be a ST guy, and he's been an excellent pick. And I did not hear Fauria talk about that. He and Merloni have gotten a bit ridiculous with their schtick over the course of time, so I'm finding myself listening to a lot more music from 2-6 these days.
