Excited about the draft results? Don't read ESPN's pick-by-pick analysis of the Pats' first three selections.

1st pick: Patrick Chung

"Chung is not a great cover safety; he isn't fluid or explosive enough to match up with NFL slot receivers in man coverage. He doesn't have elite ball skills, either."

2nd pick: Ron Brace

"Brace isn't as quick or agile as his college teammate B.J. Raji and he's never going to be a great pass-rusher."

3rd pick: Darius Butler

"Butler doesn't always play up to his ability. He can give receivers too much of a cushion in off-man coverage and we're concerned about his ability to defend the run.'

Granted they are probably covering their arses in case these players are busts, but in Belichick we trust.
