Josh Gordon? He would have been Julio's mentor instead of Roddy.

Trent Richardson,  Brandon Weedon, Johnny Manziel, Greg Little

I think you missed his point. He stated good players showing that just because they are on Cleveland doesn't mean they cant succeed individually

We all know Cleveland sucks at drafting and has drafted a ton of garbage. That being said a lot of the times those players they drafted would suck no matter where they played. Manziel would be a bust no matter what team he was drafted by. Same for Weeden and Richardson.

You can't fault what Belichik said, because he has always been one to stockpile draft picks and not give them away. If anything, BB uses his picks as bargaining chips. BB also does not place to much value in any one player, not even a QB for that matter. BB is a coach that believes in coaching players up, and having a solid scheme. BB would have never done the Julio trade, because it was too much to part with for one guy...It's just not how he does things. BB comparing JJ to Baldwin was just how he saw it at the time. Think about it for a second, the Pats under BB have never went hard on any WR, and even Randy Moss just fell into their laps, because he was a problem that other teams did not want to deal with, and BB would eventually traded him away. BB wouldn't bite on Wes Welker's contract demands, and replaced him with Edelman instantaneously.

TD took a gamble on Julio that paid off, and has never went to the well like that again. The JJ move was risky, because of his injury history, and that even showed up again, making the move look still too risky. thank goodness it has worked out, and that the Falcons are incredibly deep at the WR position, so that Julio is not a one man show. 

I just can't bring myself to criticize BB for thinking that JJ was a bad move at the time, because the man has won too many games, and too many championships to question his talent evaluation skills.

You can name bust for any team. Would they have been better for someone else? No.

Kerry Meir, Davis, the German dude, all WR's that didn't do a thing here.
