    Fans made too much out of Myra Kraft kicking Christian Peters off the team for domestic Battery. Under Carrol's tenure (strong Myra influence) I do believe the pats did not want "bad guys" on their team. Since BB took over it more like they don't want bad teammates. He has always been willing to take on bad guys as long as they played the game the right way. He said in drafting they get a lower grade but are not taken off the board.

    You can put it this way, He would take Kendrick Ellis, but not Holmes with a 4th rd pick.

    It feels very similar to when the Jets traded for Holmes. We will see how it plays out.
    It's a decent move based on the amount of money they lose if it fails (800K).

    The Pats have had success in the 4th-7th rounds, but not with CBs. The only one they hit on was Asante Samuel (4th in 2003).

    He's already a Top 20-25 CB and now will easily push Kyle Arrington out of the starting lineup.

    With the way they trade and move around draft picks, this a no-risk, high reward scenario.

    Another smart move by New England.

    Keep McCourty at safety and get Arrington's pathetic ass on the bench.

    Right.....McCourty and Gregory @ Safety and Talib and Dennard @ CB. Front 7 is now a strong unit. Now the Dbs won't be such a liability. This team can go far if the passing D can even become just average.

    The only team that will stand in their way is Houston. Denver would be another good game, but Denver's defense can't stop New England's offense.
