    Hannah is the only answer.

    Of Belichick's picks, Seymour. 7x Pro Bowl 3x 1st Team All-Pro, 2000s All-Decade 1st Team, critical player on 3 Super Bowl runs.

    There's no way to add enough poll options enough to make it valid.

    I think you have to look at who is going to Canton. Hannah and Law are already there, essentially. Seymour should be, likely will be. High, Willie, MCcourty all are nice players and certainly red jacket worthy, but probably not going to Canton. Same for Big Vince and Mankins. Only one of them were considered the best ever at their position, so that's the winner. Hannah.

    All awesome players.

    I wasn't alive for Hannah but hes the obvious pick.

    After that Seymour for me. As dominant as they come on the Dline.

    who is in the Hall of Fame?
    Ty Law
    Mike Haynes
    John Hannah

    Hannah 10x All-Pro
    Haynes 8x All-Pro
    Law 2x All-Pro

    Seymour 5x All-Pro

    As a player, Haynes is 2nd best but he only played half of his career at NE, still he made 6 All Pro teams with the Patriots, 2nd all-time among 1st round picks.

    I'd probably go

    Hannah
    Seymour
    Haynes
    Law

    With Hannah on the list, the question should really be, "Who's the second best first round pick in Patriots history?"
    Lots of arguments to be made for Hightower, Law, Bledsoe, Seymour...

    Has to be the one used for Belichick. So Shaun Ellis was the best first round pick in patriots history.

    Hannah makes this poll pointless.

    How about limiting it to Belichick’s best first round pick? Good arguments for Wilfork, Seymour, McCourty, Hightower, and Mankins. Mayo was also awesome before injuries derailed his career.

    Seymour makes that debate pointless.

    Then how about based on draft position too? That would be interesting.

    Hannah. No doubt about it. Man wish he could be playing right now. Of course I say that to myself every 10 years so he would have to be a robot lol. The fact I think that every 10 years shows how dominant the Pats have been.
