What are the strengths and weakness of the upcoming draft? I've heard repeatedly that the 2010 draft class is "deep" and i was wondering what that meant exactly. The pats have four picks in the first two rounds and that should help a fill some of the many holes. You can't expect those second round picks to make an immediate impact however- just look at our 2009 second rounders. For that reason, the 2010 season might be another rebuilding year... Unless Belichick signs a couple high profile free agents or uses picks for trades like he did in '07.
We might be looking at 2011 before the pats reestablish themselves as elite and that should be in time to give brady a couple more shots to join montana and bradshaw in the exclusive and aptly named Quarterbacks With 4 Super Bowl Victories Club
