    Parcells' quote was something along the lines of "we really liked Graham, but you can't take him that early b/c he's a TE".

    LOL!

    Have you listened to yourself? Seriously, come out and say it.

    Then you look at the main reason Pettigrew is one of only two 1st round TEs selected the past 3 years---- "He's NFL ready and is like having an extra tackle on the field.". IIRC his size, completeness, and ability as a blocker is what secured his 1st round value despite concerns about his receiving ability at the NFL level (namely his ability to separate).
    To be fair, Gronkowski only escaped R1 because of concerns over that back injury that forced him to miss most of his last season.

    Parcells was quoted as saying that he wanted to take Graham in the 4th round , and told Sean Payton he made a good choice for Graham in round 3.

    Of course Payton knew more than Parcells as he stated right after the draft that Graham was going to be elite. Payton properly guaged where he could get great value , Parcells did not. This is part of being reactionary or visionary , and I am still looking for Miami to iniate as opposed to being late for the party. We'll see if that changes this draft , I sure hope so.

    What did I miss that I should've come out and say? That it's the NFL making the picks, not the fans & media?... and that the fan/media consensus or majority isn't always on the same page?

    Hey, I was riding shotgun in the James Casey bandwagon that thought he was worth our second 2nd in '09..... but the NFL saw differently.
