The first two days of the NFL Draft are in the books and I have to say I’m a little surprised the Patriots only made two selections thus far. The Patriots clearly got two players they felt very strongly about and decided to move out of the 3rd round for an extra pick. To this point in the draft there hasn’t been a Tavon Wilson type reach and for that we can all be thankful.

Here are a few thoughts I have on the Patriots draft to this point.

Most fans, and even some scouts, think that NFL talent can only come from big, traditional schools like Alabama, Texas or Ohio St. What about those that aren’t even FBS schools? No way right? Tony Romo, Marques Colston, Vincent Jackson, Jared Allen, Jahri Evans, Victor Cruz and Joe Flacco are all current players who will tell you something different. Want to include former NFL stars? The list expands to names like Walter Payton, Terrell Owens, Larry Allen, Michael Strahan and someone named Jery Rice.
