In response to UD6's comment:
on the other hand, the pats haven't had an unproductive 1st rounder in the last 5 years.
That's because they don't waste first rounders when there isn't a sure thing available. There was no "first round talent" available at #29.
"lest you forget - beguette, dowling, mallett, price, brace, butler, tate, mckenzie, orhnberger, wheatley, crable, oconnell, wilhite. " - and you forgot Dennard, Vereen, Ridley, Gronk, Spikes, Hernandez, Mesko, Deaderick, Vollmer, Edelman and Slater. Gee, it's almost like they're 50/50 picking in the 2nd-6th rounds. Makes sense to grab 3 additional picks in that range, then.
