2013 NFL Draft Reset: Patriots Don’t Let Jamie Collins Drop To Round 2

It’s too soon to say the 2013 NFL draft was a bust, but after one season, it’s appearing that way. Last year’s draft class was supposed to lack top-end talent, so teams tried to it safe by selecting offensive linemen early and often.
