The Rutgers-to-Foxboro pipeline continues to flow

Maybe the Jaguars should just draft exclusively from Rutgers, and we can cut out the middleman.

The Patriots claimed journeyman tackle Kevin Haslam off waivers.

According to Field Yates of ESPNBoston.com, that makes Haslam the eighth Rutgers player on the Patriots roster.

Rutgers barely has that many players on its own roster, but it indicates the still-growing bond between Bill Belichick and Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano, who recruited or coached these Scarlet Knights.

Haslam has already played for the Jaguars, along with the Raiders and Chargers, who waived him most recently.

    I’d be more impressed if the Patriots were getting lots of guys from a school with a consistently winning program, such as Alabama, Ohio State, Oregon, Oklahoma, Georgia, Michigan, LSU, USC, Florida, Stanford, etc.

    Belicheck just likes guys that come from a “anything goes” kind of atmosphere. He won’t turn any heads when he starts throwing footballs at his new rookie’s head.

    This makes no sense. What do the Jags have to do with it and Rutgers surely has more than 8 Rutgers players on their own team. Huh?

    Just another body. Bill likes to have a full boat. Won’t make the team.

    Even before Ray Rice the RU program has produced many solid NFL players, most college football fans know this but many NFL fans do not. By moving into the Big 10 in 2014 the crop of RU players will only get better in fact they are now actively scouting in Texas for a TE and they already have a solid yearly take from FLA.

    Rutgers has more guys drafted this year than a bunch of traditional powers this year. They don’t develop many stars but have some quality talent.

    “Maybe the Jaguars should just draft exclusively from Rutgers, and we can cut out the middleman.”

    Look, I know other teams are all trying to copy the Patriots’ success, but I don’t think the Jags changed their stadium name to Foxboro yet.

    I went to Rutgers. Too bad they can’t draft Belichick.

    In this case, I think this is just a camp body. Practice fodder.

    They missed on Ray Rice from Rutgers.
