Draft Analysis
Round 7, Pick 6
Talented player with an elite team that likes to move it through the air. Should be a great fit talent-wise.
Past his prime, but his prime was pretty fine. Big mouth could land him in coach's doghouse.
Draft Strategy
With only Bowe in my receiving corps, I needed to do a little work here. I think C85 will shine in New England. I don't think it will be a Randy Moss redux, but I think it will be serviceable for a WR2. [Blue 5] (Contributed by: Scoefield)

Round 5, Pick 10
I remember watching Sound FX on NFL network where Bill Belichick was talking to Ochocinco before a game and telling him straight up that "Sorry, you're gonna have two (double coverage) all day." and they were both chuckling about it. That's a huge plus in my book, now that they're on the same team. Can he pull off a Randy Moss/Tom Brady season? Maybe not. But then again... just maybe. They have huge respect for him in that system.
The showboating may get on Brady and Belichick's nerves at some point. Hopefully he can keep it to a minimum now that he's on a team with a real shot at a superbowl ring.
Draft Strategy
This was the last of my "big five" of RB RB WR WR QB. Ocho may not be the best WR option in a PPR system, but I think he has the potential for more touchdowns than any other WR in the NFL. He was very devalued coming into the draft as his ADP hasn't caught up with his signing with the Patriots, so I left him till the end of the fifth round. He's my workhorse TD machine, hopefully he lives up to it. As expected, everyone else was gunning for QB's, TE's and number two running backs, so I was set from this point on, with the TE position being so deep this year. (Contributed by: datacore)
