By Chris Warner Followers of the most recent New England draft noted the contrast between the elation of Day One and the confusion of Day Two. This isn’t a new phenomenon, as we see in our round-by-round review of Bill Belichick’s drafts. (We ran a similar piece in 2009 on Patriots Daily – worth checking out for the scathing critique of the 2007 selections.) This just in: drafting looks really, really hard. Sometimes Coach Bill Belichick seems to make it a little bit harder on himself. We used to judgle the success of players on whether or not they remained in New England. Considering Belichick has been drafting since 2000 and the average NFL career lasts about 4.5 minutes, we now look to “significant contributors,” i.e., starters or productive special teamers for more than one season. All set? Let’s review… First Round – 2000: None (pick went to NYJ for BB) 2001: Richard Seymour, DL, Georgia 2002: Dan Graham, TE, Colorado 2003: Ty Warren, DL, Texas A&M 2004: Vince Wilfork, DL,...

He’s a perfect fit at end/linebacker in the Patriots hybrid defense...
