    After the Pats traded the #23 pick, I think it was Schefter who said, the player the Patriots wanted at #23 will be available at #37.

    I am thinking it has to be a TE or QB.

    If it is a QB, I am thinking Jalen Hurts.
    He is a winner, a leader & a gym rat.

    If they trade down again, wouldn't that be more of an indication that they're trying to patch holes in 2020 rather than they're intentionally tanking?

    Tight end might be a need but there aren't any particularly good ones in this draft class, certainly not any that are going to be meaningful contributors in 2020, and forcing the issue just leads to overdrafted busts. You can't just make talent appear out of thin air. Kmet's the best one but he's like a third or fourth, it's just a horrible class. Maybe Claypool if you have a notion he can be converted, but that's a process.

    Maybe but are these guys gonna be legit starters and make plays? Idk. Frankly i been saying they will have a season where they maybe go 7-9 and i don’t know if i would like that unless stidham showed glimpses of a franchise QB.

    Depending on who is still available and how far they would be moving back, I may be okay with that. But if they move back and primo talent at positions of need come off the board, I think it will be safe to assume that we’re on our way to blowing yet another draft.

    The player we wanted who will still be there at #37 would probably still be there in the third round. Praying I’m wrong.

    Riley definitely helped but I thought he had some strides on things that took a minute to develop. Deep overs where he could cheat a little with his movements. Getting himself on the right platform.
    Thought his anticipation and patience in the pocket looked calmer.

    Like you said right system. Right group of guys around him. I'm definitely not opposed I like him.

    A few of the players Bill has drafted in the second round would have been available in the fifth round.

    Nope:

    Jimmy Garoppolo, 2014
    46-for-79 (58.2%)
    618 yards, 7.8 Y/A
    5 TDs, 1 INT
    3 sacks
    4 rushes for 8 yards

    Jarrett Stidham, 2018
    61-for-90 (67.8%)
    731 yards, 8.1 Y/A
    4 TDs, 1 INT
    102.6 rating
    9 sacks
    17 rushes for 88 yards

    Comparing Jarrett Stidham's Rookie Preseason To Jimmy Garoppolo's With Patriots

    Stidham was much better. And remember that Stidham was playing with a historically bad wide receiver and tight end group, if the consensus here is to be believed.

    Not in the NFL, but because of his high intelligence, he was going to be picked up to work at the Large Hadron Collider.

    McKinney ran a 4.6 forty, he may be available for a while unless someone (Dallas) likes slow safeties.

    the 4.6 explains why burrows ate McKinney’s lunch in the Alabama-LSU game. As McKinney was constantly out of position or to slow to react.

    It hasn't happened often over the past 20 years so I have to brag when it does. :)

    BB has a vision of creating monster tall athletic middle of the field secondary. Will be interesting to see what Kyle and Joejuan can do on the field together.
