Draft Scout Snapshot: Their last few drafts have been failures littered with too many mediocre third- and fourth-round selections. Only time will tell whether or not they made the right selections. The only curious move was trading their 62nd pick for a third- and fifth-rounder. They say less is more, and while this year's draft might be lighter in quantity, the Patriots might leave this weekend with more quality than they've had in recent years. BEST PICK: Inside linebacker Dont'a Hightower -- Chandler Jones is the more celebrated of the Patriots' two first-round picks, but Hightower is arguably more versatile based on his ability to stop the run and rush the passer. These are the kind of players that seem to fit the mold best in New England, and Hightower could build a solid career as a hybrid linebacker/defensive end. - The Sports Xchange
