Remember what Patriot's nation was concerned about last year at this time. Doesn't matter much now because they won the championship.

Given the year Gronk had last year, I would say they have already replaced his role in the offense. Harry basically could be the red zone target that Gronk was because he creates the match up problems (will overpower DB, and run past LB).

Harris (consensus 3rd highest rated RB) and Stidham (consensus 4th highest rated QB)represented too much value them not to be passed up.

Remember Bill drafts for 2-3 years down the road and not necessarily for the current year. With them actually making 10(!) selections, BB thinks these kids may form the core in a couple seasons. If they don't pan out then the Patriots will be like post Marino Dolphins: marginal playoff team with declining vets.

Don't worry about Hollister ... He is too fragile to play. Doubt we ever see the conditional pick for him.
