It’s official. The Patriots’ 2007 draft is a complete wash. There isn’t one player left from that class. You can point to trades, but the fact remains the Patriots drafted nine players and they whiffed on all of them. The Patriots currently have on the active roster just three (Stephen Gostkowski, Jerod Mayo, and Matthew Slater) of the 26 players they drafted from 2006-08. Most teams would be crippled by that deficiency, but the Patriots just keep chugging along. Anyone else see a Scott Pioli connection here? I was a bit worried when Pioli left, wondering how Bill would do without his right-hand man through the Super Bowl years. Now I’m wondering if this isn’t the reason Belichick didn’t fight for Pioli to get his contract renewed and stay.
