    Didn’t do so badly last time we took a QB late in the sixth.

    Didn’t you read that MMQB story where the McCourty’s told how valuable Hoyer was in preparing for the Super Bowl? He’s likely to be Brady’s first successor, even if it’s only for a year or two. I don’t see BB dumping him, he’ll finish his career in New England. Only question is whether TB12 finishes his career first.

    I would like to see how Steve Anderson and Damoun Patterson look in OTA's and mini-camp before signing vet free agents or rookie WR's. Anderson has experience at WR, TE and FB. Patterson was a highly thought of rookie walk on with the Steelers. Even if they both stick with the Pats, a speedy WR who stretches the field will still be needed.

    Umm, no, it is hard to read a story that happens a week after my post. I try but...

    I wouldn't read too much into Hoyer's practice help. We have all seen him in games, unfortunately. He will never be Brady's succesor! Two years of Hoyer would be 2 #1 picks.

    The Pats need a decent backup. Brady is one tough SOB, but he is not unbreakable.

    It is so challenging to predict what the Patriots will do in the draft. THey are so unpredictable from year to year and never seem to tip their cards.
    How many people expected their first 3 picks last year would be Wynn, Michel and Duke Dawson?

    The positions which will be most difficult to fill in FA or via trades in my view are DT and TE.
    If they lose BOTH Trent Brown and Trey Flowers, LT and DE will be on their highest need areas.

    You are lucky the season is over.
    I would assign you some laps.
    I might just blow the whistle for good measure...

    Developing McCarron and/or Berrios on the practice squad is likely our best chance at eventually trying to replace Edelman in another couple of years.

    Of course, there’s a chance that someone else will be added to the mix, but in the meantime they don’t have to use a roster spot on a developmental prospect.

    The fact that Hoyer knows so much of the system means that he can run about 90+ percent of our offense. That alone masks some of his weaknesses in the talent department, and I doubt that he’ll be going anywhere until someone else comes here and proves they can do the same.

    The big question is whether or not we carry 3 QBs on the roster, since there’s always the possibility that they’ll spend a draft pick at the position. I’m not counting Etling, who can remain on the PS if they feel as though he’s progressing.

    A 6th round pick throwing to a 7th round pick (who happened to win the SB MVP). The league must be completely losing its sh!t watching this go down.

    Just a side note:

    Every year, I read WalterFootball's mock drafts. And, every year, some of his choices result in "hmm.... that's very interesting, and well worth pondering", while others result in "Just what in the hell was this guy high on when he did this mock?".

    Belichick has drafted QBs well over the years. Cassell, Brissette, Garropolo, Hoyer have all been fine as backups. Actually, I'd love it if they could get Brissette back from the Colts.

    RB is our most stacked position.,We have Sony, Rex, White and Develin all under contract...I'd focus more on the D-line, Tight End, LB, WR and safety positions.
