    I'm saying his improvement will be very minor compared to other prospects.

    You seem to be on a mission to clean up the grammar here. Good luck in your quest.

    Sorry to go off topic, but I saw the news the other day and the police put a parrot in custody for warning drug dealers that the police were coming. I thought of you when I heard that.

    Bob, what are you basing this on? Did you say the same about Bruschi back in the day? It makes no sense.

    Apparently I was reading old info. My bad. 13m is a much healthier cap situation. Still not sure if BB wants to add 7m for Rudolph though. Most likely he'd want to tear up that contract.

    In my opinion, BB long ago de-emphasized the draft as a team building tool probably, because he's always picking late and rookies are rookies. Over the past years he's placed a bigger emphasis on building with veterans, acquiring them through free agency and by trading picks. By time the draft comes around, he usually has a roster he could start the season with if needed and therefore has less urgency to pick any specific player, which is why he has made so many WTF picks, taking gambles on players with perceived upside (e.g. Easley, Tate, Ras-I, etc, etc) and specific skills (Wilson, Richards, Williams, etc) to see if they will work. As fans, we get frustrated with this approach on draft day, including myself, but can't complain about the overall results.

    He's become George Allen light in regards to the draft (BB still retains some value in the draft while Allen completely abandoned it).

    I think you underplay it a bit, it's more than just "some value", it's a critical part of keeping the roster young and affordable. He wants 6-8 prospects from the draft each year plus a few undrafteds, and quite a few of them end up making the team.

    That's essentially my point, though we may be interpreting "some value" differently. To rephrase, BB normally doesn't need rookies to contribute since he maintains a quality veteran roster. If they do, so much the better.

    In all honesty, if TB keeps playing at a championship level until he’s 45. There is no need to draft a qb this year.

    If they were to add Rudolph, they'd likely give him an extension and rework his deal...

    PFK, you are wrong about Harris. This is a great pick and by about week 8 you will see why.
    It's funny but you are such a smart level headed poster but every few years the draft turns you in to mentally insane human being ;)
