If you had to pin down a few players' names that went on and did great things statistically with their induvidual careers, Irving Fryar, Bruce Armstrong and Jim Plunkett certainly stand out.

The Patriots have a history of being able to find players in the draft that have a particular skill set that fits the team's work ethic. That is why so many of the players mentioned have had noteable careers in the NFL, and why fans can count on more to come with the personnel running this franchise.
