In response to HelmetofLeather's comment:
Even the staunch haters of BB's drafts have to admit that he's on to something with this last one...............Add the 2nd year leap from Boyce, Dobson, Ryan, Collins, Harmon add a legit DT/ C and get back a healthy UNDERAPPRECIATED Mayo and Brady may play til he's 40
I don't remember having a better draft class and udfa s, I had belief that some would do well, but not so many and to play at the level these guys are getting to , hard to predict, I do not know if BB did it on purpose, or just the way it worked out or both, but because they were coming on slowly thay probably will not hit the "wall" ?
I thought Allen to be the better choice as he had the pedigree and is left footed. I didn't know about holding for fgs but he has been excellent
Collins was my favorite, then Dobby
The other thing is the Pats had 14 rooks. And 8 or so 2nd yr guys. To be a successful team in the nfl I think the trend will be to get as many young guys as possible. both for energy and salary cap. I do not know that this was BBs plan but that's what struck me from the beginning of the season.
Bb has had a great yr as GM and coach. I don't think anyone has done better.
No idea when he hangs it up, but it will be a culture shock when he does
