Way-too-early grades for every Patriots pick in the 2019 NFL Draft


FOXBORO -- If there’s one thing we call all agree upon in 2019 it’s this: When the chance to make a premature judgment with limited information presents itself, you do it. Every. Single. Time. 

So let’s put our heads down, wade forward and start windmilling shots hoping a couple land.

In handing these grades down, we’ve unscientifically decided that 50 percent of the grade is “How well does the player play football?” And that’s relative to where he went not in the overall draft class.  

We’re putting 20 percent each on “General Character.” Does he come recommended by his coaches? Alleged work ethic? Captain? Does he seem able to construct and understand simple sentences? Another 20 percent goes to “Need.”

The final 10 percent is based on “Who’d they miss out on?!?!” Why so low? Because while it’s easy for us to flail like an inflatable tube man when all our research told us who the Patriots should ABSOLUTELY be selecting, we have to defer to the team that’s won six Super Bowls in 19 seasons at some point, don’t we?
