    Actually they used the post Brady CAP space pretty well and the strategy to go back to two good TEs makes sense no matter who the QB is going to be. My point was pretty simple. Bill and Nick are good buddies so I would think Bill would get an honest assessment of Barmore and not the usual media speak.

    I have no idea how good Mac Jones will be and mainly because drafting QBs is a crap shoot. NE didn't want to wait knowing teams like Vikings, Saints and Bucs could take Jones and they thought he was the best QB available at that point. Considering they got him without having to move up wasn't bad. They did move up for Barmore.

    Reality is, we're 1/1 taking a Top 10 talent near 20th overall... so until we have factual evidence to disprove otherwise... (Farley not panning out and/or his injury complicating) then living in a shell of what if's and caution tape is going to get us no where...

    The only factual evidence is JRob is the one who made the pick so we have to trust JRob's decision making.
    A sample size of one player, with a different injury (that has a track record of success after injury), playing a different position hardly qualifies as anything significant.
    With that said I do trust JRob is not going to take Farley with all the other available options unless he feels real good about the level of risk. I also believe JRob tried to trade out of that spot (not so much to get extra picks but to have ammo to trade up later if he needed to) and thus if he was still able to draft Farley he could lessen the risk in that way. It doesn't make Farley's success any different but it does make the value of the pick more appealing to take that risk.

    Given how long we took to make the pick, I feel pretty confident JRob was trying really hard to trade back.

    Just hope Caleb can really be there for years to come. Good luck young man.

    The Patriots must have started the leaks on Barmore back when he was in high school. He's always been the low effort, bad body fat (even for a DL), hot cold player with tremendous potential.
