In probably the most interesting draft selections that the New England Patriots made in the 2012 NFL draft was selecting Tavon Wilson out of Illinois with the 48th overall pick.

This will be my one and only article on this topic, at least for awhile. After watching another meltdown in the 4th quarter, compounded by the inability of the defensive backs to make routine plays in pass coverage.

I have had enough.

I have had enough of watching an opposing Quarterback launch a Hail Mary pass from their own 30 yard line knowing that there is more than a 50% chance that their receiver will come down with the ball or at the very least the opposing defensive back will interfere in the process. I have had enough.

So who’s to blame and what is going on back there?

The fate of Tavon Wilson was instantly changed with the writing of his name on a draft card by New England Patriots staff at the 2012 NFL Draft. He was instantly tied to the likes of Stevan Ridley, Sebastian Vollmer, Logan Mankins and Richard Seymour – players who were instantly panned as “reaches” by many fans, experts and media members.
