Rainey and Batch may be as talented...we won't know for sure until they get more playing time and are not running the ball up the middle...

Yes, the Pats* have blown some top picks...that's why they seem to stockpile draft picks every year...they just throw them at the wall and see what sticks...

When it works well, like with Gronkowski and Hernandez, people take notice...
