Ha perfect. You are making this to easy. I can see passing up on Wilkerson or Heyward at 28 as a potential criticism but PLEASE, name ONE, just one potential "3-4" OLB the Patriots blew it passing on. To me the comedy of this whole thing is the suggestion that somehow jabaal sheard and Brooks Reed are these immediate pro bowl candidates at 3-4 OLB and the Pats blew it this year in not selecting them. Lets hear it: The Patriots really blew it not taking a 3-4 OLB this year. The time is now. Tom Brady only has 5 years left. Brooks Reed is not going to be out of the league in two years as an over rated player with long blonde hair that is only half relevant because he resembles clay matthews.
