New England Patriots' 7-Round Mock Draft: What Will Bill Belichick Do?

Predicting what Bill Belichick is going to do in an NFL draft is a little bit like trying to lick your elbow. 

It’s exceptionally difficult, if not impossible, and frankly there’s not really any good reason for attempting it.

That is of course unless you happen to be a fellow GM or a fledgling sports writer who doesn’t mind a little public humiliation.  (I’m talking about predicting what BB is going to do now, not the elbow thing.  You don’t really think I sit around the computer wasting away my day on YouTube or Facebook watching people do insanely mind boggling, time wasting stuff do you?)

The only satisfaction I can take out of this exercise in futility is that while I’ve taken a little chunk of my life and devoted it to writing words that will probably bear little if any resemblance to reality, there is a small but growing number of you that have taken a little chunk out of your life as well to actually read what I’m thinking. 

That, coupled with the fact that more than a few of you have slyly attempted to lick your elbow while watching out for the wandering eyes of your fellow office workers, indicates to me that I am not alone in my desire to do the impossible. 

I am going to predict the Patriots 2011 draft, and you should stop trying to do that.
