I was thinking the name Trevor Matich but Joe is right with Tony Mandarich. When the Pats drafted Matich I thought there was a BYU conspiracy in Boston. What was up with all those BYU guys that got drafted high and sucked. Just wasn't right.

Shockingly, the Patriots picked a linebacker. Jerod Mayo, welcome to New England.

is this possibly the most puzzling draft of the Belichick era? the qb selection absolutely floored me. Time to start drinking again.

Honestly, it puzzled me in the fact that they attempted to stock up at their weakest position. I'm so used to them drafting tight ends and offensive linemen that seeing them go directly at CB and LB was refreshing. I'm very impressed.

Edit: Just found this quote from Reiss:

Patriots coach Bill Belichick held a press conference to wrap up the Patriots' draft, and he opened on a light note.

"Who would have ever thought you would be covering a Bill Belichick draft with no offensive linemen, defensive linemen, or tight ends taken?" he said to the reporters sitting in front of him.

Trevor Matich? 1985 / Round: 1 / Pick 28

Did have a 12-year career, but primarily as a long-snapper. Hardly someone you have to waste a first-rounder on.

This made me remember an old Bruce and the Benchwarmers song from the sports huddle of my youth.

They took the song there is nothing like a Dame, and made it There is something in a name. It was about the non tough sounding name like Irving and Trevor on the Pats at the time.

Craig (Quincy, MA): The Patriots had obvious needs at LB and CB and addressed that directly. I'm somewhat surprised that most analysts weren't that high on New England's draft. Is the feeling that they reached for Wheatley, O'Connell, Crable, etc?

Steve Muench: (4:36 PM ET ) I think they had a GREAT draft so don't look at me. I saw that Mel thought that they should have taken Iowa's Charles Godfrey over Wheatley. I agree with that on some level but Godfey may be a better fit at safety so I'm ok with the Wheatley pick. I think they did very well to get Mayo and Crable who was a great value in the third round. Finally, the O'Connel pick is one of the best they made in my opinion. At the risk of getting pummelled by comments, can anyone say Joe Montana and Steve Young? I know. O'Connell is no young at this point bu he tremendous upside and he should learn a lot from playing behind Brady.

Mel's newest 5/16/12 - I'd kibosh Pierce for the 2 games in Philly and hope the week off helps him for Game 5.

Slomo - Dec 19 2011 - I would say absolutely but you know they are going to win their last two games to mess with you.

Shawn Crable was great value and Kevin O'Connell is the next Steve Young!
