Media IWII. The media HAS to seek and destroy teams that go against what they lay out as the value of specific players, or the entire industry of draft prep-as-media does when people realize it's useless.
A major portion of entertainment media's energy will always be spent justifying it's existence by tearing down anyone who flies in the face of it's collective wisdom.
To be clear, I'm not saying the Patriots picks are good or bad. But look at the overall collective wisdom of historical draft rankings. They're at least as bad as any team's track record, they're just utterly unaccountable. GMs that make safe picks in line with collective draft rankings are safe much longer than GMs who trust themselves and select based on their own scouting, even if they're equally right and wrong.
