Re: Tai Streets
- I'm with you Dave. I don't see Tai Streets as high pick value.
Perhaps I'm just gun-shy after the Donald Hayes let down? Perhaps
Street works the routes in a complicated system well enough to
inspire Weiss to want him? He's not high on my list but I"m betting
the Pats Brass learned from the DH bluncer.

- The Patriots are crazy if they trade for Street. What did we get for
Terry Glenn? A fourth round pick? He's a fruit but I'd want him on my
team before Streets any day of the week and twice on Sundays. We have
two solid possession receivers in Troy Brown and Deion Branch, you
know that rookie who had over 40 receptions as the teams fourth
receiver, only a few less than more recognized receivers like
Stallworth and Antonio Byrant. With Branch as the number 2 David
Patten could move back to the slot where I think he does best. All
that aside, the draft has great depth at receiver this year and the
Pats would be crazy to trade for an average player.
