Most Intriguing Draft: New England Patriots

Jason DeCrow/Associated Press

The New England Patriots have been one of the most interesting teams in the league when it comes to drafting under head coach/general manager Bill Belichick. The hooded guru has never been one to follow popular opinion or make the “sexy” pick in the draft.

Belichick bucked the trend yet again at the start of the 2014 draft and continued to make a number of selections that had some scratching their heads throughout the weekend.

The Pats started things off on Thursday night by grabbing Dominique Easley out of Florida with the No. 30 overall pick in the first round. The Gators defensive lineman is immensely talented and capable of becoming a top-notch contributor, but his tendency to suffer major injuries may come back to haunt this franchise.

While Easley is immensely versatile and possesses a motor that just won’t quit, he suffered serious ACL injuries to both knees during his collegiate career. While he bounced back from his first one with a monster 2012 campaign, it remains to be seen if he will return to form after being sidelined in 2013.

New England clearly believes he will, as Belichick spoke with Chad Finn of the Boston Globe about Easley’s skills: "He does a lot of things well. He's a smart guy, he's very instinctive. He's got a great motor, works hard. Football is very important to him. He's an all-in guy. There's not much to not like about him; versatile."

Doug Farrar of Sports Illustrated added his two cents on the issue:

While you can rationalize the Pats’ opening pick as an ambitious gambit and a swing for the fences, their second-round selection is tougher to justify and is being perceived as downright puzzling.

New England took Jimmy Garoppolo of Eastern Illinois with the No. 62 pick, adding another signal-caller into the mix at a position that is already a major strength for the club. Not only does the team boast future Hall of Famer Tom Brady as the starter, who still has a few more good years, but it also employs long-time backup Ryan Mallett—who is going into his fifth season in 2014.

The pick made a little more sense on Day 2, when there was speculation that Mallett would be dealt to the Houston Texans during the draft, but per Anthony Gulizia and Ben Volin of the Boston Globe, that would never come to fruition.

Belichick made it clear that he would be willing to keep Garoppolo, Mallett and Brady if it helps his organization win football games, as per Mike Reiss of ESPN Boston:

We'll do whatever is best for the team. We've had four, we've had three, we've had two. So whatever's best for the team, that's what we'll do. Nothing is set in stone. We've had different numbers of guys at different positions. I don't think there's any concrete formula. We'll do what's best for the team. 

The Pats used their third-rounder to restock the running back position, bringing in James White of Wisconsin to help out Stevan Ridley and Shane Vereen. They also added depth to an injury-prone offensive line via tackle Cameron Fleming and guard Jon Halapio.

The Pats would finally add some more defensive prospects on Day 3, bringing aboard defensive end Zach Moore and safety Jemea Thomas before using their final selection on wideout Jeremy Gallon.

These Saturday selections aren’t nearly as confusing as New England’s picks on Days 1 and 2, but the club’s decision to take Garoppolo and Easley where it did makes this one of the most intriguing, but potentially great, draft classes in the league.
