Im getting a bit pissed that a lot of so called drafts guru's from NFL network are raving over the Pats draft, yet somehow downplaying our own. If you look at the NFL.com draft tracker http://www.nfl.com/draft/2012/tracke...bs:dt-by-round - Ireland had value in every round, whereas the Pats overdrafted Tavon Wilson, Jake Bequette, Nate Ebner and Jeremy Ebbert?????
The Pats drafted 3 players graded over the 80 mark, while we had 4, including 3 over the 70 mark, with Pats not having any.
IMO we had a very, very solid draft.
Ryan Tannehill, was overdrafted..........if selected by any other team other than ourselves. He was a top 25 player, but when you consider he already knows the play book and as Gruden calls it 'verbage', he has to be higher on our board. When you put that together with the fact he plays QB, taking him at #8 IMO is excellent value.
Dont get me wrong it is very early to judge, but this is the most positive I have been after a draft for.......I cant remember!
