I didn't say anything about him being in jail. I said he if can't play (meaning he isn't good enough to play in the NFL), then it's not a good pick, regardless of where he was selected. And going back over the last several years, the Patriots have taken a lot of players who turned out not to be any good. I know they wouldn't take a guy they thought would spend a significant time in jail. Those are pretty much reserved for the Bengals.
