Bill Belichick gives scouting report on dog Nike, who was Patriots star of NFL Draft


While the Patriots drafted several talented players in the NFL Draft, the star of the weekend was Bill Belichick's dog, Nike.

Belichick worked out of his vacation home on Nantucket and Nike made several appearances on television, including Friday night when he was sitting in front of Belichick's computer when the Patriots were about to make a pick.

Speaking via video conference after the draft, Belichick was asked to give a scouting report on the dog, including his 40-time.

"He's fast," he said. "Not as fast as the rabbits he's chasing, but he's close. He's not that fast, but he's fast."

Belichick gave all the credit for Nike's popularity to long-time girlfriend Linda Holliday.
