Patriots received worst grade in the 2022 NFL Draft

May 1, 2022

I saw a tweet from the Boston Globes Ben Volin on Sunday that made me think about how many times Mel Kiper Jr has been wrong. Kiper is the “NFL Draft guru” for ESPN, and he gave the New England Patriots the worst grade in the 2022 NFL Draft. Admittedly, Belichick did some things that confused me, but hours removed, I’m going to try and remember that Belichick knows a little more about football than me. But let me take a second and talk about Mel Kiper for anybody that plans on using his grade as an argument. Kiper gave the Seattle Seahawks a C- for their 2012 Draft, in fact I’m pretty sure he said he hated what they did. Seattle Drafted: Bruce Irvin, Bobby Wagner, Russell Wilson, and J.R. Sweezy. That led to the Seahawks winning the Super Bowl. So please, take what Kiper says with a grain of salt, because he’s wrong as much as I am.
