Normally, the words loser and New England Patriots don't belong in the same sentence, but this year is an exception.
I'm highly unimpressed with the Patriots draft this year.
They reached for Nate Solder in Round 1 when Anthony Castonzo and Gabe Carimi were both still on the board.
Then they chose corner Ras-I Dowling in Round 2 instead of a pass rusher like Brooks Reed when they desperately needed one.
The Pats also passed on Cameron Jordan in Round 1, wasted second and third-round picks on bottom-of-the-depth-chart running backs and then made their best pick of the draft, which is saying a lot considering all they got was a backup QB.
Not a good draft for Bill Belichick. The only good that came from this year's draft for them really was the fact that they added a first and second-round pick next season.
But in terms of this draft, not good, not at all.
