I just dont get it.
The patriots had one player who projected to "possibly" be the best at their position on defense. Butler will never be a CB1, our D line is becomibg quickly awful, and while hightower is our "best" LB, collins had all of the potential to hit that LB1 sphere. But no.
So out of our 3 best defensive players last year (Hightower, Collins and Chandler) we are down to Hightower. This is a tough position. This was Bradys year to get # 5 considering the lack of strength in both conferences.
