The 2022 NFL draft turned out to be quite an entertaining one. A few surprise picks, a few expected ones, and a few bewildering choices; everything contributed to making this draft a memorable one.
However, one team in particular, in fact, one man in particular raised a few eyebrows with his tactics during the draft. Yes, we are talking about Patriots head coach Bill Belichick.
“Bro, what the fu*k?”: Kendrick Bourne was caught off-guard by Bill Belichick’s tactics at 2022 draft
Star Patriots QB Mac Jones had thrown a lavish party during the first round of the draft. With the 21st overall pick, receiver Kendrick Bourne who was there at the party was expecting his team to add a promising up and comer to the unit. However, he was stunned by coach Belichick’s choice.
The Patriots decided to trade down which apparently wasn’t liked by Bourne. “Oh my fu*king goodness. Oh my gosh, bro,” Bourne said in a video during the party. “Bro, what the fu*k? Bro, I’m out of here, this some bullsh*t, I’ve been waiting over here for fu*king hours!”
“What the fu*k? I’ve been waiting all day for this sh*t,” Bourne continued. The Kansas City Chiefs ended up getting Trent McDuffie, whereas, in return, the Patriots got Kansas City’s first-round selection and a couple of their picks. As it turns out, the Patriots weren’t done with the surprises.
They also picked Cole Strange at No. 29 who was being projected as a third-rounder. It wouldn’t be wrong to say that Bill’s picks shocked the ones at Jones’ party and sort of ruined it. However, it would be way too early to give a final verdict about these picks as the players roped in by the Patriots have got the capacity to take this team forward.
