Teach Me How to Dougie: Patriots select Kyle Dugger with 37th pick

Recommended Posts

The only thing I can say about this is, at least we still have 12 other picks?

I saw him at Senior Bowl practice and remember thinking he was fast but nothing else. But in all fairness I didn't think there was any reason to watch him.

They need youth at safety but I don’t like this particularly DB

Dugger is a massive project. He will contribute on special teams right away, and you have to think that is why this pick was made. They must've felt they needed more on that phase of the ball. Still, quite a reach IMO. This does not mean Chung is gone either, this kid will not be ready to start for at least a season, if not two. He gets tunnel vision watching the QBs and reacts. He lacks instincts, but it was fine at his level because the competition was trash. He was the fastest and most explosive guy on either sideline throughout his college career and he seemed to do the bear minimum. He dominated, but he is NOT NFL ready by any means.

The value is IRRESPONSIBLE. A waste.

The person they drafted though is good for two reasons:

1.) Goodbye Pat Chung. (Stupid former early second round pick circa 2009.)

2.) This guy is INSANELY athletic.

Special Teams are important, but investing the 37th Overall Pick with a view for ST contributions initially in a deep draft like this is just bizarre.

He is INSANELY athletic. But that is all. The decision is highly ill-advised as it does not account for value at all, something Bill preaches.

So is everyone else in the NFL and for that matter draft. We need players not projects.

Safety is a position we could see a run on. We don’t pick again for 30+ picks. He isn’t someone we all knew of but most definitely a position of need. We have two safeties on the downturn of their careers. I like the pick even tho I saw bigger names on the board.

He project as a Chung-type player? Or more of a traditional box-safety?

It's the dreaded second round DB, BUT:

1. He's incredibly versatile.

2. Both McCourty and Chung are 33.

I would have preferred Gross-Matos however.

I think he is more a tweener. Athletic enough to do either really. Idk though.
