    I know people will complain but I left out Brady's draft since he was the only one. I think there's a clear top 3 and after that really hard to decide on a lot that were very good.

    1. 1995: Law, Martin, Ted Johnson, Hitchcock, Wohlabaugh. Two HOFers , a major contributor to 3 SBs and two contributors of some standing.

    2. 1973: Hannah, Cunningham, Stingley, Hamilton. A HOFer and 3 special players in the organization's history.

    3. 2003: Warren, Wilson, Samuel, Koppen, Banta-Cain, Bethel Johnson. 5 players who made pro bowls, all have rings and played key roles. Peope will complain about Bethel Johnson but you don't beat the Colts in Indy or Tennessee in the playoffs without him that year for the title.

    Best of the rest. It's hard to cut they up. 1996 and 2010 if certain players could have kept their heads screwed on right would have been spectacular. I loved Don Blackman. It's too bad he got hurt.

    1976: Haynes, Brock, Fox
    1977: Clayborn, Morgan, Ivory, Hasselbeck
    1981: Holloway, Collins, Blackmon, Wooton, Dawson
    1983: Eason, Lippet, Rembert, James, Starring
    1993: Bledsoe, Slade, Rucci, Brisby, Troy Brown
    1996: Bruschi, Milloy, Glenn, Irwin
    2002: Branch, Green, Givens, Davey
    2005: Mankins, Cassel, Hobbs, Sanders
    2009: Edelman, Vollmer, Chung
    2010: Gronk, McCourty, Hernandez, Spikes
    2015: Flowers, Mason, Brown

    Yeah the Brady draft was the best.
    But there were others players they drafted that season that contributed more than some of the guys you have listed.

    Klemm, Redmond, Randall and Pass all contributed and had somebody else been in this class I would have added it but there's not a solid 8-10 year starter after Brady like the other years have. No pro bowlers,ect.

    2012 should be up there. We do not win the last three SB without High. chandler jones was too expensive too keep.

    2015 sure had the best 4th round ever, nailing 2 pro bowl caliber players in Shaq and Trey (I’ll give them a pass on Tre Jackson because his career was derailed by injuries).

    Yeah but Brady alone makes it the best.
    Also you included guys like heath Irwin and Rohan Davey

    Had they traded every pick for Brady, it would still be the best draft they ever had.

    I'd agree '95 & '73 were outstanding. There will be push back from the lovers of low hanging fruit on discounting 2000 but outside of Brady that was a very weak class:

    Adrian Klemm, bust
    J.R. Redmond, a few (but very significant) flashes/memorable moments
    Greg Robinson-Randall, generic at best
    Dave Stachelski, roster fodder
    Jeff Marriott, who?
    Antwan Harris, 2-3rd stringer
    David Nugent, roster fodder
    Casey Tisdale, who?
    Patrick Pass, good FB

    You and Bill Polian both. The Pats on the other hand didn't draft him until 2000

    Only because a glitch occurred and an even better lefty punter went undrafted.
