The 2023 NFL Draft 4 /27/23 Round 1 8PM

  • 6,735
  • 156
Tonight is the first round of the 2023 NFL Draft. It is being held in Kansas City of all frigging places. This means I'll have the mute button on most of the night.

The Patriots have the 14th pick which will probably happen between 9:30 and 10PM. I don’t have a frigging clue who they will draft or at what position.

They could trade down. There was even a rumor that they will trade up to #2 with the Texans for Mac Jones and a 2024 1st round pick. I called Bill* and he would neither confirm or deny such rumor. I think this rumor originated on the Felger and Butthead radio show.

Reading all these mock drafts over the past few weeks, the Patriots could draft any one of 82 players.
Enjoy the draft.

* Not BB, just my cousin named Bill.

Rodgers Is a Jet

The Jets basically trade two 2nd round picks for Rodgers and move down two spots in the 1st round. If Rodgers does come back for another season, that changes to a 1st.
Jets did pretty well I think. The Jets continue to pick up GB's QBs once GB is done with them. 1st Favre and now ARodgers.

Don't kill the messenger. I don't want him but as RKK says, it's up to Bill.

Hard to think back on "most IMPORTANT plays" in Pats history too long before you think of Dont'a Hightower.

Damien Harris signs with Bills.

If this was posted in another thread, too bad. It needs it's own thread.

It always sucks to lose a good player.. But to lose him to a division rival, really hurts. Harris was a good player and a good teammate.
He signs a 1 year deal with the Bills. I don't know how much he got, but it seems that we could have offered him something reasonable.
So now we get to see him play against us twice a year.

Ireland - Grand Slam Champions - Rugby 6 Nations Championship

Unreal scenes. Ireland have won the Six Nations Rugby Championship for only the 4th time since 1883!

We did it by beating England on St. Patricks Weekend; you cannot plan it better than that! The scenes in Dublin are unreal.

He's confirmed to McAfee...Says the Jets and Packers are working out the deal and he wants to play in New York.

Not too excessive, money-wise at $11M a year....that is below his estimated market value prior to this. Have the Pats made a mistake in not matching this?

Just saw that Jon Jones is signing a 2 year deal to stay with the Patriots.
Those of you who tweet with Twitter should be able to find this.
I understand he signed for less to stay.

My grades on the Patriots' 2023 draft

  • 1,459
  • 22
As my comments will be as accurate as 99.99999999% of people who grade the draft before the picks have played an NFL down, here goes.

Pick 1: Yet a-bloody gain they ignore (insert name of any number of future Pro Bowl WRs) to take an injury prone smurf at Corner, because he shows "good intangibles". Loves his mum and goes to Church. Whoop-dee-doo.

Pick 2: 260 lb O lineman, who played one down in HS and hasn't played since. However, he's "wicked smaht". That's alright, then. We whiff on 5 future Pro Bowl tackles as Mac Jones retires in his 3rd season, having been sacked 1,000 times.

Pick 3 (trade down to 7th round): Shifty slot WR. Unheralded etc. All-Pro.

Ban gomezcat.

The Patriots 2023 Off Season

The Pats waste no time. Big changes are coming for the coaching staff and the players. Let's get this right!


Hadn't thought of Charlie Weis, Jr. but his aggressive offense at Ole Miss under Lane Kiffin has changed that team's fortunes.
I notice he left out Chad O'Shea who spent 10 years coaching the Pats' offense.
