After listening to a multitude of commentators, and perusing the comments here from our great readers (Jeff, Ryan, Jared, AP, etc…), there seems to be a growing consensus around a cast of characters that people would approve of if the Patriots selected them in the 2010 NFL Draft.
If we could flip the script for a moment, who are you praying that the Patriots avoid on draft day? Sound off below on who will you cause you to throw things at the TV if you hear their name.
We’ll get things started with our nightmare draft pick:
Jermaine Gresham, TE, Oklahoma
Gresham is coming off a bad injury. His in-line blocking is sub-par. He doesn’t run very crisp routes. These things do not jive with my view of a Patriots tight end that should be picked in the 1st round. That said, he runs well, creates separation, and has good hands. Why spend a 1st round player when you can get a similar product in the 3rd or 4th round like Tony Moeaki, Dennis Pitta, or even Nate Byham or Clay Harbor in the later rounds.
