    What round did the Pats draft The Gronk. What round did the Pats draft Hernandez. I am not oposed to drafting a TE as long as it's not in the 1st or 2nd round.


    1st and 2nd round picks should be used for premium positions in every single draft. Even if you already have a player at that position. Wanna know how the Pats have managed to remain atop the AFC dispite some of the worst drafts in memory.

    Well, they have Brady.

    Seriously, Brady don't block for Brady. Brady don't throw to brady. Brady don't don't defend the run . Brady don't play special teams.

    The Patriots draft terrible, but they draft smart. Just because u have a 1st round pick doesn't mean u shound draft a player in the 1st round. If no player at a premium position is available in the 1st round where u are scheduled to pick, trade the pick and add more picks even if it's into the next year.

    Premium Positions: The Stars / 1st and 2nd

    QB
    LT / ability to run and pass block equally well.
    OC / See LT
    RBF
    NT
    OLB / 34
    DE / 43

    Co Stars: 2nd and 3rd
    RT / Ability to move inside to OG
    CB
    DT
    MLB
    FS
    Suporting Cast: 3rd and Later
    OG
    TE
    RBC
    SS

    OK, so now he runs 4.5s, is that so bad for a developing TE.

    So what? Even if the injury cost him some speed, it doesn't mean he hasn't regained most or all of that speed. And even if he's lost speed since the combine, you're still nuts for arguing that Hernandez and Pettigrew are faster than him. What, he went from being a 4.4 guy to a 4.8 guy? Ridiculous. If he's a 4.5 guy now, he's still faster than most of the guys you mentioned.

    And he's got that type of speed on the field. He's a mismatch if the Jets ever get a competent QB.

    No. Cumby is a terrible blocker and an average receiving Tight End. Resign Keller to a 1 year incentive deal please.
