Some elements present an interesting side show...
eighteen picks are gone and five are offensive tackles...hmmm. Don't think Bill will want the "6th OT" on this board...will he?
Belichick watches what everyone else is taking waiting for "value."
He has built a dynasty on bad teams wasting draft capital on QB's, "rushers" and, in his opinion, WR's. I can't remember the year (as there have been 20 or so) when 5 of the first 12 picks were QB's?
It was like turning that 30th overall into a 24th overall.
This was one of the "off the field ways" that Brady helped the team. The more GM's grabbing QB's early in the first, the more talent dropping to Bill.
The tackle that Tampa took to block for Brady from Iowa is very good. He was a basketball player also.
The only QB's that I saw who might be "Bill QB's" Were Colorado and Hawaii. Issue is neither have the quick release. Jimmy G's release was and still is at the top for speed. Thus, I don't know if there is a third tier QB that Bill will pick with the 7 picks he has in the last three rounds.
The Brian Hoyer era part II is upon us.
The WR Lamb, from Oklahoma that went to the (Falcons) correction, Dallas, is really good. Mini run on WR's here.
The Notre Dame TE is ok, not sure if he can block and how far he'll drop. There are about 8 TE's who are "ok" and none really leads the pack. The Purdue guy is ok.
If Bill picks a "big D lineman" his stats are "SEC only."
Is there a huge guy from Croatia who started playing football six months ago? Keep an eye on that one.
Ok, 4 CB's gone...does Bill want the 5th CB?
One DT and one DE gone if you don't count EDGE.
Heading for Bill's sweet spot. I remember when he got Vinny Wilfork out of Florida because everybody was busy picking the wrong guys.
