Patriots make most of their many NFL Draft picks

Bill Belichek the mad scientist of the NFL draft somehow acquired about three dozen picks in the run up to the 2010 NFL draft and by all accounts made the most of his opportunity to breathe youth into his aging ball club.

With a dozen picks in the draft the Pats could select a whole new starting offense or defense and have a sub to spare, but as always one of the most respected coaches in NFL gambling used the multiple picks to fix multiple holes in what was already a pretty good team by NFL betting standards.

The Pats particularly mined the talent of the University of Florida for talent taking three Gators between Rounds 2 and 4. LBs Jermaine Cunningham and Brandon Spikes will be ready to play immediately and after having competed against top talent the college football betting level week in and week out should excel. TE Aaron Hernandez is also ready to step in and contribute the teams NFL betting success immediately as well. Hernandez was rated as high as a top five talent on some NFL gambling draft boards and appears to be a steal going in the fourth round.

The team’s top pick, CB Devin McCourty, isn’t a big name outside of NFL scouting circles but saw his stock rise in the run up to the NFL draft may not contribute immediately but has a bright future in the NFL betting scene thanks to his fundamentals. In Round 2 the Pats took the first of their two TEs selecting Rob Gronkowski of the U of Arizona. The former Wildcat has massive size and can block and catch with equal skill.

The other player taken by the Pats in this year’s NFL draft that should walk into the starting lineup when the football betting schedule begins in the fall is punter Zoltan Mesko from the University of Michigan.

The rest of the Pats dozen NFL draft picks are less likely to have an immediate impact but many should make the squad and develop into contributors in the NFL betting action within a few years.
