Hall of Fame
I forgot about that. They also don’t look at how many draft picks they didn’t have. They still won Super Bowls during that time…I've already documented in the Mercilus thread the stats on players drafted on his watch as the Director of Player Personnel:
23 Pro Bowl Selections
11 First Team All Pro Selections
7 Second Team All Pro Selections
2 All Decade Team Selections
1 Defensive Rookie of the Year
And of course three Superb Owls. But the Patriot drafts sucked when he was in charge of them.
During 2014-2018 the Patriots lost a first rounder and 4th due to deflate gate in 2016. Didn’t have a 3rd or 4th in 2018. Didn’t have a 1st, 2nd or 3rd in 2017. I am too lazy to look at any others.
Definitely more to the story about draft picks during 2014-2018.
But some people don’t want to look beyond the surface.
