Sure the Patriots have been the top team in AFC East for a decade and likely the model NFL franchise during that same time frame. But people who think they're where they are because they master the draft are wrong. I think they're where they are because they build that the draft is frosting on the cake not the foundation. More proof today when the cut Antonio Garcia their 3rd round pick from 2017. They can afford to make mistakes and don't give it a second thought. Could you imagine the outrage if Miami released Tankersly after one season and he was selected 14 picks after Garcia. Garcia was released due to a non-football releated illness, but if Miami had to do the same thing it would be viewed as devestating. In New England it's no big deal.
