In response to dreighver's comment:
Talib, Cason, a SS, along with a DT, and a situational pass-rusher would satisfy my wants for this defense. Then focus on adding another talented CB and some WRs via the draft.
trust me you don't want the Pats drafting CB's and WRs in the draft.
Top 5 WR's the Pats have drafted under BB:
The CB's don't look much better with Samuel, Dennard, Gay, McCourty, and Arrington as the top 5
What was wrong with Branch and Givens? Superbowls... and a SB MVP, uncoverable in his prime here.
Edelman was just a developmental player because he is an amazing athlete. All purpose type guy. Tate was drafted as much as a returner and all purpose guy than anything else. Played minimal true WR in college. Jackson, well it happens, we all liked Jackson coming out. Bethal I have no apology for BB on that one. No idea.
BB did not draft Gay or Arrington.
You see that list and you say what is wrong with Branch and Givens? After 13 years those being your top two WRs drafted and you don't see anything wrong with the drafting? Branch and Givens are nice pieces but nether are #1 WR's and Givens was barely a #2. Without Brady nether did anything it was Brady that made them. Even with Brady you think he'd could make any WR you drafted better but there was just so bad even he couldn't. You should be able to get at least 1 top end WR in 13 years. It should speak volumes that Edelman a QB convert project is the 3rd best drafted.
As for the CB's I included Gay and Arrington because it was to saddening to put Bulter and Wheatly as the other top CBs drafted in 13 years
