Listen to the Felger & Massarotti show starting on Monday for the return of the Felger & Mazz “Big Board”, featuring the guys finding the next Patriots draft picks … by chucking markers at a draft magazine.
You may laugh now, but the Big Board has endured over the years because it’s been stunningly accurate. The 2017 season marked the first time that Felger & Mazz did not land on a player that the Patriots actually drafted. That doesn’t mean they’re hitting on good players, but it does prove that playing a game of marker-darts with a poster board can be just as prophetic (if not more) than anything Mel Kiper or Todd McShay will throw at you.
Here’s a list of Patriots draft picks that Felger & Mazz “predicted” with the Big Board since its inception:
2012: DE Jake Bequette
2013: WR Aaron Dobson
2014: QB Jimmy Garoppolo
2015: DE Trey Flowers
2016: CB Cyrus Jones and QB Jacoby Brissett
Below is the tentative schedule for the Big Board’s positional groups this week. Please note that this schedule is subject to change:
Monday: Offensive line and defensive line
Tuesday: Linebacker and defensive back
Wednesday: Running back and wide receiver
Thursday: Quarterback and tight end
Monday is expected to kick off with offensive linemen at 2:35 p.m., followed by defensive linemen at 4:35. We’ll be sure to keep you updated if the schedule changes.
