Patriots Deny Portion of Draft Board Story

The official Twitter page of the New England Patriots denied a portion of Jeff Legwold's Denver Post article on the "short board" draft approach Patriots head coach Bill Belichick has instituted, and which Denver Broncos head coach Josh McDaniels is emulating in Dove Valley.

Here's the line that the Patriots take exception with: "It's a process Belichick has used to build a three-time Super Bowl champion. Some who have worked with Belichick said there were years when the Patriots had as few as 25 names on their draft board."

New England's response:

"Don’t believe everything you read. Reports of Patriots past draft boards w/only 25 players on it is fiction & merely a small fraction of (the number)", the Patriots tweeted.
