    Solder is not going to be a really good one no matter how hard they work on him

    I've been saying that since Joel Buschbaum (sp?), draft god, died, BB's picks have sucked. When Joel was alive, BB would go over his draft chart with Joel the night before the draft, and make corrections based on Joel's recommendations. Heck, BB even offered Joel a job in his scouting department, but Joel declined. I'm fully convinced, that Tom Brady was a Buschbaum pick, and NOT a BB pick.

    The last four years of Pats picks have not been all that good. One good year out of four is pathetic.

    Let's see:

    Patrick Chung
    Sebastian Vollmer
    Aaron Hernandez
    Darius Butler
    Brandon Tate
    Julian Edelman
    Jerod Mayo
    Brandon Merriweather to name a few.

    Also, if you factor in the had drafts where they didn't have a 1st round pick ('09), a draft ('07) where they had a 1st, 4th, 5th, four 6ths and two 7ths, it puts things into perspective.

    I have no idea if Solder with become a good player or not but I know this, if I was a pats fan, I would not be happy right now. With what they started with in terms of picks, to only be sitting there with Solder and a 1st next year from a potential super bowl team has to be disappointing.

    How many of those guys are real difference makers? Fact is that with all these picks the Pats D is not what it was in the early 2000's. And they have holes on the O line that made them go for Solder. which was a mistake; should have taken Castanzo.

    The film they showed of Solder makes me feel better about Smith.

    I know one Pats fan who will be livid they traded out of the Ingram pick for a future low 1st. They need play makers. They rely too heavily on Brady carrying that team in Dirk-esque fashin, just hitting a bunch of slot WRs and TEs down the middle seam. Brady in that Jets playoffs loss looked like he was starting to show his age a little bit.

    Brady no longer has the fire in the belly he once had. You can see it. Peyton still does but Brady does not.

    Thats a lot of meh.

    Tom Brady is like 33, how about you stop playing around and go get Julio Jones?

    People keep saying they are the smartest team but having Peyton and Brady makes you look smarter than you really are. Those teams arent great but they contend b/c of the elite QB play.

    Solder has the potential to be as good as Smith. The Pats can afford the risk. Anyone who says the Pats can't draft are frankly out of their minds.

    And supposedly Coughlin wanted Solder bad.

    14-2 and they had good picks. Solder was once rated as a guy the Cowboys were looking for at 9. He moved back because he is a little more raw but the Pats do what they always do, reload with youth while their other guys are close to gone.
