I like the player fit... reminds me of an Edelman of tight ends...my issue is the value...

If he turns out a highly productive career does the value actually matter?

Uncertain. However, currently, the value of these picks on the whole has been off.

If you can get these same players at later picks in addition to adding others that are now already gone, then why waste that opportunity and those resources?

If you think that the player you pick is the one that fits what you do and will help you the most then that's the value. The Patriots valued Keene more than the other TEs available. I'm not saying that this or any of the picks are/were the best player available when drafted, but the Patriots have a lot more scouting tools available and tons more knowledge than what we do.

I hope they all have great careers as Patriots.

There's really no such thing as a "reach" (for the most part at least); if you really like a player it's much better to get them a round early than one pick late. No one knows what Belichick plan is, but here's my guess:

1. He believes in the WR corps. We still have Jules. Harry has a year under his belt and despite his lapses last season he showed some potential. Sanu is healthy. Meyers flashed in the preseason.

2. He's addressing the tight end position. We all know how much Belichick values the position and only Chicago had a bigger black hole than us.

3. It looks like Stidham is the man barring free agency.

4. He wanted to rebuild the defense by starting with the safeties.

Good grief, I actually agree with Elky on this.

I remember some draft forum dwellers liking him a lot (as seen above), so I'm cautiously optimistic.

I mean I hit on Kittle, was a big Dawson Knox fan last year. So I think I’m decent on the later picked TE front.
