of the 41 players the Patriots drafted from 2004 through 2008, only four, nose tackle Vince Wilfork, guard Logan Mankins, kicker Stephen Gostkowski and inside linebacker Jerod Mayo remain. (Geer missed '08 backup WR Matthew Slater, so there are five.)... The quirky stat sent me to examine the Indianapolis Colts' drafts in that same five-year span. I found six hits, four starters (RB Joseph Addai, S Antoine Bethea, G Mike Pollack, WR Pierre Garcon) and two backups (WR Anthony Gonzalez and TE Jacob Tamme) in Indy's haul. Good players, but no big stars.,,, Dallas, by comparison, has twelve picks from that span still on the roster, with seven of them (Demarcus Ware, Marcus Spears, Jay Ratliff, Anthony Spencer, Doug Free, Felix Jones, Mike Jenkins) starting, while Orlando Scandrick, Jason Hatcher, Martellus Bennett, Tashard Choice and Alan Ball continue to play supporting roles . The main point of the story is elite QB's make missing on draft picks not as important to a franchise. But there has been just so much complaining about the Boy's perceived lousy drafting that I wanted to point out the Pats and Colts record.
