Decay setting in on Pats Dynasty

We've had a great ride this decade, lots to be proud of but its heading south. Player development is the problem - we don't have great players as we did and our drafts the last few years has been awful - only Mayo and Merriweather the last 4 years are any good. Meanwhile our division rivals have drafted lots of talent and its beginning to show.
BB knows this and revamped the D with youth but the talent just isn't there and we don't have a feature RB, as we did w Smith and Dillon in the SB years.
They've added a bunch of broken down vets to try to make up for the poor drafting and so there's AT, Springs, Burgess, Galloway, Taylor - all past their prime.
The NFL is fueled by good, young talent - we are missing out now!1
