Jets fans thoughts on Patriots draft?

Are you guys blown away at how awesome Belichick is at manipulating the draft?

We began the draft with four picks in the first 3 rounds and came away with five such picks (including 4 in the first two rounds) plus we gained an extra 2nd rounder next year. Additionally we improved our positioning on the 3rd day of the draft by improving our selection in round 4 (119 to 113) and converting pick #190 (6th rd) to pick #150 (5th rd).

All of this was achieved while still acquiring each of the players we were targeting.

We now have two 1st's and two 2nd's heading into next years draft plus our own 3rd rounder. That means that 2011 will be the fourth consecutive year the Patriots possessed at least five picks in the first 3 rounds (although one was forfeited in 2008). That's 19 selections over 4 years that took place in the top 3 rounds compared to the league average of 12.

With two first and two seconds next year, expect the Patriots to not only end up with four players in the first two rounds but to also trade down and pick up more ammunition for the 2012 draft as well. That's the best part of the strategy. It's a strategy that can be maintained year after year after year.

And that is why the Patriots will continue to be a force for the foreseeable future. While other teams will see their teams rise and fall, the Patriots will continue to reload and compete for championships year in and year out.

I'd like to introduce to you the 2010 New England Patriots, otherwise known as "NEP - The Next Generation".

Seriously? That's great for you that you could acquire lots of picks and still get who you wanted. Problem is, who you wanted are a lot of JAG's, just like every year. Considering how many picks the Pats acquire every year, they are among the worst drafting teams in the NFL.

Hope you like 8-8. Average in, average out.

First of all, how do you or anyone know that "All of this was achieved while still acquiring each of the players we were targeting?" Nobody outside of the pats warroom knows that.

Second, it is laughable how you can talk about how great the Pats draft was by strictly talking about how many picks they had, acquired, and traded. Sorry, but the draft is about acquiring players, not picks. You don't once mention an actual player you acquired. While the pats have been so adapt at acquiring these picks, the jets have acquired Revis, Mangold, Harris, D'Brick, Green, Keller, and Sanchez. Not to mention arguably this years best cb and a possible oline starter. Sorry, but the jets may have had less picks the last few years, but they have definitely gotten better players than the Pats. Kinda hard to dispute that.

and you know that th epats got every player they were targeting in each respective round how exactly? and no...i'm not blown away by your draft. you passed up on wr's you could have really used and you took mccourty over wilson which was a fail imo. but i'm glad you did it because we got him instead....

Devin McCourty over Dez Bryant?

Swing and a fail. Sorry. No one is better than the Pats at drafting JAG's.

Exactly. With so many picks in this draft, this was the year the Pats could afford to be aggressive. Take some high risk, high reward guys. Not a nickle corner, two TE's and a slow ILB.

Why didn't they package picks to move up? Maybe go for a CJ Spiller? Or are the Pats perfectly happy with their 5-headed sh** monster?

This was just one giant FAIL for the Pats.

By far and away the best team in the league at getting picks. One of the worst at using them.

Can't put it any other way than this. Maroney and Jackson were just the tip of the iceberg with the Patriots. Didn't understand the Devin McCourtey pick when you had a complete baller with Kyle Wilson sitting right there.

I will agree with you, though. You are fantastic and compiling picks and raping teams in that facet.

McCourty and Butler could end up being a good CB tandem.

Gronkowski could be good if healthy. I personally like the Hernandez pick more than Gronkowski. Cummingham was a reach imo. I like Taylor Price a lot. Very underrated. Spikes is slow but a thumper...could be a Curtis Lofton type.

Problem with the Pats draft though is Mesko scares me more than any of these players.

What was up with that? Was he on drugs or something?

Everybody who played HS or College football knows Gronkowski. The guy people pray doesn't show show up at the party. The guy who never knows the jokes on him. Radiohead wrote a song about Gronkowski, Karma Police.

Why would I be impressed. Belichick just trades back in the draft anyway. Most of them fail. Terrence weatley, Chad Jackson, Merriweather is no stud, Kevin O'connel, Jonathan Wilhite, Crable hasn't done anything, Kareem Brown, Clint Oldenberg.

I could keep going, but you get the point by now. How many of those four second rounders helped last year

Especially now that they signed Wilfork, Brace seems kind of like a wasted pick. He obviously didn't impress them enough to let Wilfork go.

Brace is very raw, but played well when he filled in for Wilfork.

Its year # 2, so we'll know more this year whether he'll make it or not.
