    The Patriots did not reach they are just superior talent evaluators and know that Mayo is the second coming of the original L.T..
    I was in the ORG once, best 6 months of my life.

    Considering Mayo was projected to go late first-early second, taking him at 10 is a reach. It has worked for the Patriots before(Logan Mankins), but a reach is still a reach.

    BTW, has anybody heard the numbers for the rookies? I read that Rivers wasn't taking the 55 from Ahmad Brooks. That could change if Brooks is cut due to the arrest though.
