Rating individual picks is different than rating a draft on the whole. Also, it is whatever I voted before. Or are you trying to tell me that you're some sort of official poll rater that can translate a but of letter grades into their respective rating from epic win to epic fail? Lol...

You are the most negative poster on these boards and you only have a handful of posts. Grow up.

Your newest New England Patriots:

1a. Chandler Jones
1b. Donta Hightower
2a. Tavon Wilson
3. Jake Bequette
6. Nate Ebner
7a. Alfonzo Dennard
7b. Jeremy Ebert



Chandler and Hightower alone made this draft an EPIC WIN.

After Day 1 I said I don't care who we pick in the later rounds, we got 2 impact players on D..

Bequette was another nice addition, and Denard was great value in the 7th IF Belichick can get him to buy into the Patriot way

Epic win. Very familiar with four players: Jones, Hightower, Bequette, Dennard. Confident I know how they'll complement the Pats core players, and how their addition will upgrade the entire D.

Never heard of Tavon Wilson, but researched the heck out of him last night. What I was able to find impressed me greatly. Believe he'll need zero developmental time to learn his position -- he's well schooled as a DB.

All the draftees need to learn the Pats D. And considering their football smarts, I'm hopeful their transition will be smooth.

I'm telling you what I'm telling you. You're a troll. We all get that. We know it's just a matter of time before you post something stupid enough to get you banned, because that's what trolls like yourself eventually do. In the meantime, if you're going to troll, do it so that it makes sense. 3 As, a B, a C, a D and an F is not an epic fail, and you can't be so clueless as to think it is. What you probably did is run to the EPIC FAIL portion of the poll and then realize that you couldn't bag on all the picks. I get it. I'm just saying to do better next time.

Irresponsibly inconsistent and obvious trolls are boring.

As I said after the first round, they could have stopped then and I'd be a very happy guy. Getting Dennard in the 7th just adds to that.

I voted for WIN. Loved getting Jones and Hightower..I was pushing for Jones hard before the draft. Not thrilled with the rest of the draft but we'll see how they do.

WIN.


Jones and Hightower are both going to be studs..maybe even studs this upcoming year.

I keep hearing about people saying Jones is young and isn't ready yet..but when you draft someone at #21..he is usually going to start/play a lot

Actually, I voted after I rated the individual picks. And just because you think those ratings translate to something different doesn't mean it does. I think your problem is you assumed that I hold each grade and pick with the same amount of weight, but I didn't. Hopefully that clears things up for you. Also, have you considered that you're the only one here doing the name calling and insulting? Hmmm...

Then since you gave 1 F, and clearly EPIC FAIL would be an F, you consider Wilson to be the New England Patriots 2012 draft.
And you arent negative, combative and antiPatriots?

Agreed. What does he meed to be ready for.
His first job is to line up at DE in the nickel and dime and use his pass rush tools to attack the QB. That alone makes him worth the #21 if he does it well.
Anything more than that he does as a rookie is a bonus.

1.) I'm not buying your line. You don't give top picks As and then epic fail a draft for a second round pick when you're ok on some of the even lower picks. That would be monumentally stupid.

2.) I called you a troll. It's what you are. However, if you feel my calling you a troll is inappropriate, you absolutely should report my post to the mods. If they subsequently tell me not to call you a troll any longer, I promise you that I will stop.

I happen to think your general disposition is fairly insulting to yourself and the people who have to read your drivel.

No, it wasn't based solely off Wilson. I put more thought into my rating than just averaging the letters or whatever you're doing. There is no wrong or right way to rate a draft class on a message board, I am not sure why you're taking this so seriously. Also im not sure if you heard the saying but only you define yourself, not others. So really, calling me a troll is just a waste of your time along with everyone else that has to read it.

It's pretty clear that you didn't put any thought into things. If you had, you wouldn't have assigned those grades and still gone with EPIC FAIL.

And I'm not taking it seriously, because there's nothing to take seriously. It's a post-draft snapshot, nothing more. I just want you to be a better troll if you're going to troll.
