A year after making a splash in free agency, the New England Patriots have lost more than they’ve gained.
Running back Brandon Bolden is also with the Las Vegas Raiders, joining former Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels.
Yet aside from the troubling developments during the 2022 offseason, NBC Sports’ Warren Sharp reminded everyone regarding their atrocious draft history regarding wide receivers.
this is gross
list of Pats WRs drafted in first 4 rounds since becoming a dynasty:
rd 1 – N'Keal Harry (about to be gone)
rd 4 – Malcolm Mitchell
rd 2 – Aaron Dobson
rd 4 – Josh Boyce
rd 3 – Taylor Price
rd 3 – Brandon Tate

Sharp named all the wide receivers New England drafted in the first four rounds since becoming the NFL’s foremost dynasty.
Yet he was more of a one-season wonder because he was primarily a non-factor last year.
Meanwhile, only die-hard Patriots fans might recall the other names on Sharp’s list.

Troy Brown was their only Pro Bowler that year with 1,199 yards and five touchdowns.
