I'm Brian Billick and were looking he had division by division how the team stacked up now we've got some separation from the draft. To see how maybe they help themselves. And what are the needs they might still have. The AFC east like the NFC east I thought did an excellent job as a division as a whole in helping themselves. You obviously have to start with the New England Patriots if for no other reason because of Tom Brady but the New England Patriots had twelve draft choices second went to the Philadelphia Eagles. In terms of the number of choices. And head coach bill bill check isn't into wasting draft choices they moved all over the board to get the number of picks particularly in the second and third round. And it and then move people around to get these early picks. They had a solid draft in terms starting out with a quarterback position. -- recording from from what -- are good physical corner. Tight end position they picked up to -- it and she did idea. Of what they want augment offensively obviously when they got Randy Moss Wes Welker who's coming off of injury. Julien element that filled in for Wes Welker but they took too tight ends the first four rounds that started out with rob Gradkowski and incredibly Talbot tied in. Missed most of last year at university Arizona due to a back injury they obviously feel like he's passed that they picked him up. With the 42 pick of the draft I think had he not had a back injury he would have been drafted early so they actually got probably a first round value. With their second round pick and then surprisingly in the fourth round they picked a parent her Hernandez from the University of Florida. -- H back move actually got two very good. Receiving tight ends for Tom Brady to integrate into the offense. I think the New York Jets -- the most intriguing story in the National Football League imagine not only. Trading for Cromartie to go with -- Darrelle Revis in the secondary but their first pick of Kyle Wilson. A very highly thought of coordinate. Corner. Out of Boise I think clearly gives. The New York Jets as a gift to the secondary is there is in the National Football League and it's not like. Rex Ryan needs an excuse to have a lock down defense of cover people so he can run more blitzes so I think that with the additions that obviously they made. And and what they've done offensively adding Santonio Holmes. They're a team that's poised to really make an impact in the AFC east and challenge new England and the entire AFC. They're loaded for bear and had a great off season. The Miami Dolphins are also team I thought rebounded very well this was a classic Bill Parcells. Solid draft across the board they started -- Jared Colbert from Penn State. A very capable warmth tall defense of -- on the interior that are young man how the universe -- to you talk cohesive. A linebacker high intensity kind of climbed up the draft charts late which was a bit of surprise and John Jerry and often to guard the brother I'll -- jury. Who went as a defense alignment the Atlanta Falcons. John John Jerry interior lineman from Mississippi. Good solid if not spectacular solid picks by the Miami Dolphins but of course the offseason picking up Brandon Marshall are huge weapon to give to Chad Henne I think Miami in a combination of what they -- -- -- off season what they were able do in the draft. May have had the best off season of anybody in the AFC east. And the Buffalo Bills again good news bad news there's actually nothing the Buffalo Bills could draft that isn't going to help them because they had so many needs across the board Chan -- reached factors old ACC roots and taking CJ Spiller. A huge impact exports of player that ought to help their offense and if indeed if Trent Edwards is going to be their quarterback. Give him another weapon to try to get some points on the boards for the AFC east. Very interesting and if you want some good summary you might pick in my book more than a game looking at both those things that go one on and off the field particularly in a time -- a collective bargaining agreement and all that's gonna be made of that over the summer. Pick it up you might enjoy.
