    Or, Santonio Holmes could have blown his knee his rookie year while Chad Jackson turned into a stud.

    What if the Pats had taken Holmes at #21 and then drafted an RB in the 2nd round? Lendale White went #45, Maurice Jones-Drew #60, and Jerious Norwood #79. Norwoods's been about as productive as Maroney. We could have taken him with out #75 pick (traded to GB along with #52 when we moved up to #36 for Jackson) and gotten Richard Marshall at CB with our #52. Many people had predicted the Pats taking Marshall at #21 that year.

    I was not a big Holmes fan coming out of college, but he has developed nicely and is an impressive receiver. It's hard not to think of how nice he would look opposite Moss.

    I don't think Holmes was a Patriots type, charactor guy, heading into that years draft.
