Survey Says...

So I am sure everyone knows that the draft order is determined by a team’s record. Therefore putting New England at the end of every round, all that means is the Pats kicked a lot of but last year. Yet in Coach Bill Belichick eyes it was a weak draft and left the Pats in a tough position to recruit quality players.

Regardless Belichick has an eye for the type of talent and character that makes the New England Patriots so competitive. Looking for certain intangibles, Belichick found what he was looking for in first round selection with OL Logan Mankins and third round picks CB Ellis Hobbs and OT Nick Kaczur.

Both linemen that were drafted are versatile and have the toughness and work ethic to help replace Joe Andruzzi, who left to the Browns, and injured Tom Ashworth.

I give the Pats a B- for their 2005 draft. What do you all think out there?
