There once was a time where Bill Belichick couldn't be touched. He and his golden boy quarterback were unstoppable on the field, winning three Super Bowls in four seasons. They made a run at perfection and broke records. Nobody in their right mind would question a Bill Belichick draft selection, because after all, Belichick must know something the rest of us don't.

has masked the fact that Belichick is no longer a master of the NFL Draft. In fact, it's quite the opposite.
After the jump, we'll break down the success of the Giants and Patriots
in recent drafts.
