Belichick, Mac Wilson, Mack Wilson discussed on Greg Bedard Patriots Podcast with Nick Cattles
I think Belichick again, this kind of goes in line with what I started with on this pod today. Belichick, everybody has been screaming, including you and I give the young guys a chance. Give the young guys a play the young guys. Well, look, if you've been screaming that for the last two years, then you can't complain about them, not drafting a linebacker or an edge. Because what they're doing is they're saying, we're betting on Mac Wilson, we're betting on camera grown, macro, so 2.2 seconds, if that, to bring up my groan when he was asked about drafting a linebacker. He said, look, McGraw is, we're looking at him as this year's draft pick. I agree with that. It's a reasonable way to look at it. Is it going to work out? I don't know. But they look at linebacker. They look at edge and they say, hey, look, we've got Jennings. We've got uche. We've got Perkins. We've invested in that position. It's either shit or get off the pot. Excuse my language with those guys. And so if you've wanted them to play the young guys, if you want to see what their prior drafts can actually produce, you're going to see that. Whether it's good or not, that's the deal. As far as the pick, I would have stayed there, I would have went with a cornerback, whether it was Elon or mcduffie, whoever they liked the most, I just value that position a heck of a lot more than I value offensive guard as we talked about earlier. So I would have I would have gone the whole stick and pick route. But again, I think we learned looking at this team. Belichick is putting his trust in the moves that have been made in the last year or two. And that's what's happening. And I agree with that, Nick. I agree with you. And I think that, and I am in favor of it. I mean, we could argue about like, all right, well, if they didn't do it in the past and all of a sudden, you know, well, I mean, now it's right. I mean, I want them to do it like three years ago. But anyways, the edge totally agree with you. Linebacker completely agree with you, like I like Mack Wilson. I think he's a starter if they unlock on my did a story on that. I've studied this film. Camera grown, I think, is a good athlete. If you wanted to underside speedy linebacker, camera grown as that guy. And I'm fine with that. But the juwan Bentley thing. They just should have let it play out longer. Hey, maybe was anybody gonna rush to sign you on Bentley? I mean, maybe the Raiders, I don't know, but you know, I let a play out and I already know I have guys and I can sign Jamie Collins back. If it doesn't work, if you want Bentley signs elsewhere and I don't get a linebacker in the draft, then I signed Jamie Collins back or Dante had to, I don't know, something like that, but Devin Lloyd, you plugged Devin Lloyd into this front 7 with what they have and Mack Wilson and what have you? I'm kind of excited about that. I agree. They could have waited on Bentley. At least I think they could have. And if you don't bring Bentley back, you can go find somebody that can replicate most of what Bentley does. I agree with you wholeheartedly with that. But we'll see. You know, maybe grown is the guy and raekwon McMillan is somebody who showed some flashes before he got hurt last year. So we'll see if those choir moves make sense. All right, let's go pick by pick here..
