Brady's never had a good deep ball. He had only 1 successful season throwing deep and that was the 18-1 year when Moss was unstoppable and could adjust to everything thrown his way. He's made a career on elite short-intermediate accuracy and going through his reads in a system that fits that skill set perfectly.

 

Maybe he's not the greatest deep ball thrower, but he's still good.

 

I'm not sure where you got the idea that Cam is definitely better at it..Maybe you could show me some numbers or something that would support that statement and I would change my opinion, but I have no reason to believe that based off of what I've seen.

 

Brady is one of (in my opinion, the greatest) QBs of all time.  You could make a better argument by saying Brady has gotten by without a great deep ball, but when you say Cam is definitely better..its hard to back up those statements.

We hear time and time again about how teams need to surround their QBs with weapons, but what do you think QBs actually prefer? For instance, if you had a 1 on 1 with Cam and asked him who he would rather have between a stud LT or a equally stud WR, what do you think he would prefer?

"Big men give you the chance to compete."

 

Everyone should hopefully know the answer to this question.  Without protection, you have no chance.

Cam has a more accurate deep ball than Tom Brady has ever had. And Brady has done pretty well with himself.

 

Lets not get carried away..

Jaelen Strong in the second?

Works for me.

 

Whoever we pick, I will find a reason to like them.. but when you watch those top QBs, it just seems like a ton of the throws they make look so easy.. I feel like those quick receivers that get separation underneath make it so much easier to complete passes and stay on pace.  When I look at the best offenses, seems like that is a common ingredient.  Thats why i would rather have a guy like that, instead of a big guy.

 

One thing that the Patriots have always done is have a running back that can play that role (Kevin Faulk, Woodhead, Vereen). I've seen Brady complete so many third and short passes to them that look so easy. Surprises me more teams cant find guys that can do that stuff.  Maybe its just that no one can do it as well as Brady can.

I'm telling you not to be shocked if the Panthers grab him in the second round.

Benjamin, Funchess, Olsen...

That's a whole lot of red zone threat.

 

I dont want us to draft a number 2 WR because he's a redzone threat.  The majority of the throws Cam needs to make arent jump ball type throws.  We need someone who runs great routes, can get separation, and has good hands.  I feel like we have Kelvin to make those splash plays, and now we need someone who gets open underneath consistently.  Greg Olsen is tall, but I dont think he plays that tall.. He just runs great routes and has great hands and is really smart.  I want another WR who can do that.  Most of the top quarterbacks in the league have that guy that always gets open underneath. Old trusty..

 

Peyton and Brady had Welker..Now Brady has Edelman.  Aaron Rodgers has had guys that arent huge but are reliable at getting open underneath. Plaxico Burress (who played a role that I see for Kelvin) had Amani Toomer, who was consistent underneath. Fitzgerald had Boldin.  Most of the top offenses I can think of have receivers that each have their own roles in the offense.  I cant think of many top offenses that dont have diversity in their receivers' roles/playing styles.

 

Edit: I know I went back in time for some of those receiver references.. I dont know why those people were the ones that came to mind..
