Robert Kraft answered questions about the 2013 Draft Class yesterday (see original post here), and he was extremely positive about how the draft panned out for the Patriots.
When Kraft was asked if, from a fan's perspective, he would be disappointed that the Patriots traded out of the first round he replied:
"As a fan, I could feel that way,” he acknowledged, adding, “But I think we got the equivalent of first-round draft choices in the second and third round, the way I look at it. Time will tell."
Kraft plays politician by acknowledging the Bill Belichick criticizers' disappointment, but then backtracks by saying he loved the draft class, thus reneging in his attempt to sympathize with those who were upset that the Patriots traded out of the first round.
He states his clear view of the draft by claiming that the Patriots got 1st round talent in the second and third round, which is a claim that every draft expert would disagree with considering Duron Harmo...
