The Patriots will probably wind up using that pick to draft a below-average kicker. It's not like they're going to get a future HOF and GOAT QB with a 6th round pick.

Impressive but hardly unprecedented. Hell, two weeks ago those same "dumb" Jets were able to get a 7th round pick from Seattle for the horrendous DB Parry Nickerson, who didn't have a snowball's chance in hell of making it onto the team and was DEFINITELY going to be on the waiver wire within hours.

Hunter Henry suffered broken leg. Not on IR, so could return in a month or so.
