I think something worth pointing out is, and there are many variables to this, I know. But Flores comes from where? How do/did they approach the RB position?
It was usually some sort of committee approach right? With no “one top talent” that they went and drafted in the 1st round. I’m just going by memory here, but it always seemed like whoever they put back there, it was sorta a “no-big-name” guy... and he’d do great for a couple years, then they’d find someone else.
Build the team and more specifically the o-line and other supporting cast. Create an o-line where me and the ol’ guide dog could run through it. Lol
You are not wrong ( Except BB did draft Michel in Rd. 1 a couple of yrs ago ) However, the Pats did have a QB that teams feared far more than the QB in Miami. Why copy BB when all his coaching tree is scattered with HC coaching failures.
I believe they think they can find a RB in 5 or 7th Rd.
The one question I have came from last yrs UDFA. Why did they not go hard after James Robinson?
