The patriots have a ton of picks every year and miss on a ton of those as well. No one notices because they have a good enough team that they can afford quantity over quality, but even with them, it caught up to them.
Pretty much this. That would be 7 picks in the first 4 rounds. Realistically even if Jerry and crew have a good day we are going to miss on 3 out of those 7 picks. Thats just life. Now that means youre left with 4 guys that you basically traded down for. So the moral of the story is, aside from a few special circumstances, you should just stay where you are and take the top talent available.
