Found April 26, 2013 on Patriots Life:
Patriots.com posted a video a little while ago of some discussion going on in the team's draft room last night. Shown in the video is owner Robert Kraft, head coach Bill Belichick, director of player personnel Nick Caserio, football research director Ernie Adams, director of college scouting Jon Robinson, and assistant director of college scouting Monti Ossenfort. Caserio can be seen on the phone with what appears to be Vikings GM George Paton. It is really interesting to see just how discussions of the trade went down. Here's the link (sorry the video couldn't be embedded). http://www.patriots.com/media-center/videos/Patriots-Today---Inside-the-draft-room/050bfcb0-ebeb-48c1-864b-07ff74ee1256 Anthony Aidonidis @aidonidis18

Robert Kraft, Patriots Pledge $617K to One Fund to Support Boston Marathon Victims (Photo)

Kraft initially donated $100,000 to the One Fund last week, but he pledged even more to the cause on Thursday night.

In Bill I Trust: How the Patriots Won the Draft on Day One

In all of the years I have been an diehard fan of the New England Patriots, I do not recall a single time that I have called exactly what Bill Belichick will do in the first round of the draft, or any round for that matter. However, it is an extreme rarity if anybody does. Bill Belichick's drafts are similar to what the writers did to the ending of the show Lost, he purposely...

Patriots Make Out Like Bandits, Yet Again, Showing Value Always More Important than First-Round Splash

FOXBORO – Bill Belichick is a sucker for value. No, you probably won’t find the hoodie scouring the clearance rack at Filene’s Basement or rummaging through coupons in your local Stop&Shop, but when it comes to the NFL draft value is the word. In now 14 NFL drafts under Belichick, the Patriots have made 33 draft-day trades — 17 up and 16 down — and Thursday was no different...

Robert Kraft and Vince Wilfork raise significant money for One Fund

There wasn't much Patriots news yesterday, as the team did not end up making a pick in the first round. A lot of Patriots fans weren't happy to hear that, but that's not to say there wasn't any good news on the Patriots front yesterday. Both owner Robert Kraft and nose tackle Vince Wilfork did end up raising a lot of money for the One Fund in support of the victims...

Predicting Stars and Busts: NFL Draft Trends

When the NFL added the expansion Houston Texans to its league in 2002, it brought the number of teams up to an even 32. In the eleven drafts since then, there have been 351 first round selections. Why not an even 352? I think Bill Belichick has the answer to that question. Anyway, something interesting to note about these 351 first round draft picks is that only 122 went on to reach...

Daniel Bard's minor league pitching coach is the anti-Bill Belichick

Gordon Edes has a pretty substantial piece on Daniel Bard's return up over at ESPNBoston, and it had a quote that got me thinking. You know how Bill Belichick is beloved around the world (sans New York and Pittsburgh and Baltimore, and OK, just in New England) for trashing his team as much as possible? Like they win 49-3 and the film review is all about that one play where...

Patriots Take Wide Receiver Aaron Dobson With Their Second Second-Round Pick

Bill Belichick had two picks in the second round and he actually used both of them. After taking linebacker Jamie Collins just minutes before at No. 52 overall, the Patriots used their other second-rounder (No. 59) on Marshall wide receiver Aaron Dobson. Dobson is a freak athlete and should provide some much-needed size on the outside for Tom Brady. He measured in at 6-foot-3, 210...
