We took Heyward-Bay at #7??!

We took Heyward-Bay at #7.

Such an Al Davis pick. Could run in a straight line at 100 miles an hour but couldn't catch and couldn't change direction. Hopeless, but at least we didn't draft Sanchez at #5.

Still, a quality year for Punters.

a classic Reese draft for us, Nicks was good for a bit got hurt and didnt make it to a new deal, Beatty had his moments and was ok but the rest were nothing much.



Nicks was at least the best outside WR draft and played a role in us winning a SB but it was a draft that is really a sign of what was coming, why we ended up as a mess.

'2009. A Quality Year for Punters' - Not the Draft headline many where expecting i'd imagine!

I like Stafford, but jeez, the rest of that top 10. Even if you use the whole of the round to compile a top 10 - Stafford, Crabtree, Orakpo, Jenkins, Cushing, Maclin, Mack, Matthews, Wood, Nicks...….it's hardly overwhelming.

2009 was a decent draft for the Pats

Took Patrick Chung at 34th overall, Sebastian Vollmer at 58th overall and of course Julian Edelman at 232nd overall (what a shocking omission Richard! )

Nicks did better than I thought on reflection. Didn't realise he had back to back 1000 yard seasons early in his career.

You know, I looked over the 2009 Draft when I typed up the 2008 one, and I thought 'best not forget Edelman, he doesn't jump out at you at 232'.

I obviously got carried away with all the Punters!

you missed out the biggest part of the patriots 2009 draft

the pats traded the #73 pick to the Jags (who drafted CB Derek Cox) for there 2009 7th round pick(Edelman) but also there 2010 2nd round pick that became Gronk.

Wow, that worked out well. Never knew that's how those picks came about.

Ironically (thanks wiki) Cox ended his career with the......Patriots. He also picked off Peyton Manning in his first game as a rookie apparently, not many people can claim to have done that.

the Pats traded away there 1st round pick twice to the Ravens(Oher) and the Packer(Matthews) and ended up with Darius Butler/Brando Tate and the 73rd pick so we did maybe better with that than the extra players.

yeah he was good and had a pretty good post season when we won the SB, without the injuries it would of been interesting to see how his career panned out. a lack of longevity hurts him on reflection but the other WRs in the draft pump him up.



Harvin also worth nothing as he showed promise and was traded for a 1st.
