The draft is one of my favorite days.
I'm so going to enjoy this one coming up.
there's a lot of luck involved. even if you do everything right players can fail, even if you do everything wrong players can succeed.Hell ya.
All these “scared” fans are annoying.
I also think Brian Flores is going to have a bigger input than most people think. The dude is a scout at heart and a wannabe GM, in his own words. Dude spent his early days in NE dreaming about putting a team together from scratch.

i hope the luck and the skill come together for us these next two drafts.
no outright busts would be good (i don't mean slow to develop, i mean busts, lol).Agree completely with that.
That’s why I think the “strength in numbers” philosophy is the way to go moving forward.
So many fans are enamored with the here and now and fail to realize this FO is setting things up for the long haul.
The 2020 draft is no more or less important than the 2022 or 2024 draft. We are in the rare position to create a true draft arsenal for years to come.
Statistically speaking it’s soooooo unlikely we hit on all 3 of our first rounds, heck if we hit on 2 out 3 that’s a win.
What makes the most sense is having multiple firsts and seconds so we can absorb the misses and keep moving forward.
So much of it is luck. Tom Brady being the perfect example. A guy drafted by Scott Pioli that Belichek didn’t want to keep on the roster because it meant he had to keep 4 QBs to do so.
Im usually all about trading down and acquiring the ever valuable high 2nds.
I think our FO is going to surprise a lot of people with their patient yet aggressive approach to the draft.
This is not a roster that needs 4th, 5th or 6th round picks, those picks need to keep being flipped for value.
