Top 5 draft picks of the Belichick era

Top 5 Draft Picks in the Hoody Era Since taking over in New England back in 2000, Bill Belichick has been hit and miss, like many coaches & general managers, when it comes to the NFL draft. Belichick has swung and missed miserably at some picks (Bethel Johnson, Chad Jackson, Laurence Maroney anyone?), but has taken flyers in the back half of the draft that have panned out beyond...

Cursed again? Bethel Johnson thinks so

Has a new curse descended on the whole of New England? First there was the curse of the Bambino and now there appears to be the curse of the Bethel. Former Patriots wide receiver Bethel Johnson seems to think he's had in his hand in the Patriots not winning a Super Bowl in 10 years. Following the Pats 26-16 loss to the Broncos in the AFC Championship, Johnson tweeted: The underperforming...

Former Patriots Wide Receiver Bethel Johnson Thinks He Cursed The Pats

Bethel Johnson hasn’t played in the NFL since 2006. The speedy wideout was drafted in the second round by the Patriots back in 2003 and won two rings in New England before being traded after the 2005 season. He was primarily a special teams player – only catching 30 passes in three seasons as a Patriot – but that didn’t stop Johnson from taking to Twitter to confirm what...

New England Patriots: Players Most Likely To Break Out In 2013

The New England Patriots are like every other team; they take their chances on young players hoping for high returns on the investment. Some years that investment pays off, such as drafting two star tight ends at the same time in Aaron Hernandez and Rob Gronkowski (too bad Hernandez shot himself in the foot).Other prospects don't work out so well, such as receiving disappointments...

Tom Brady answers the "impatient" question regarding young receivers.

The list of receivers who've flunked out of Foxboro is a long one. Joey Galloway, Chad OchoCinco, Bethel Johnson, Reche Caldwell, and a host of others have come to New England, only to leave with a big red "F" on their report cards. The rumors have persisted that QB Tom Brady may not have the patience with guys not being able to get on the same page. He addressed that...

Take a look at the Patriots’ weight room records

This picture of the Patriots’ weight room records was posted to Reddit today, and you might be surprised at some of the benchmarks and who set them. I, for one, can’t believe that Bethel Johnson holds the bench press record for wide receivers. Also, Tim Tebow is about to shatter all those QB records. The post Take a look at the Patriots’ weight room records appeared first on The Nosebleeds.

Patriots Spent 25% of Their Time Looking at Receivers

Of the allotted time given to the Patriots for draft preparations, they opted to spend a good majority of it looking at potential weapons for Tom Brady. The Patriots spent roughly 25% of the time they were given to looking into wide receiver options. After losing Wes Welker to the Denver Broncos and Brandon Lloyd due to his inability to be a normal human being, the Patriots see...

3 reasons the Pats won't take WR early in the draft

A lot has been made in recent weeks over the depleted receiving corps on the current Patriots roster. I wrote the other day about how Gronk's injury further increases the need at the position, and I still believe that a piece needs to be added at the position before the season begins. If not, I think we could be in for another season reminiscent of when Brady had Reche Caldwell...

Mike Wallace Not Worth Hefty $13 Million Price Tag Despite Speed, Playmaking Ability

When you think of the best wide receivers in the NFL, your mind immediately goes to players like Calvin Johnson, Larry Fitzgerald, A.J. Green, Roddy White and Julio Jones. All of those players combine elements of speed, strength, route running and solid hands. Further down the line, you may start to think of wideouts like Desean Jackson, Wes Welker and Demaryius Thomas — players...

Scott Pioli discusses the challenges in picking wide receivers - including his misses in New England

Kansas City Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli, who used to help Bill Belichick pick the groceries in New England, was asked today about the difficulty in choosing receivers in the draft. Pioli, of course, was the vice president of player personnel in New England when both Chad Jackson and Bethel Johnson were taken with high draft picks, only to wind up as busts. ”We had hits and...

Pats cut yet another WR who was drafted high

By Jim Donaldson Taylor Price, a third-round draft choice in 2010 out of Ohio U., has joined Chad Jackson (second round, 2006) and Bethel Johnson (second round, 2003) on the list of disappointing wide receivers drafted in early rounds by the Patriots. Price, who was released Saturday, appeared in only three games in two years with New England, catching just 3 passes for...
