Bill Belichick is one of the best coaches in the history of the NFL and there's no denying that. But now, he holds another very high distinction - the best general manager in the game.

Patrick Daugherty of Rotoworld ranked Belichick as the top general manager in the league for the second consecutive year. While sometimes Belichick does things that raise eyebrows, they usually end up working out for the best. Belichick is without a doubt the best at letting players go at the right time.

Think about it, what have guys such as Wes Welker, Matt Cassell and others done since they left New England? Not a lot.

Not only that, think of some of the draft gems he's hit on - Tom Brady, Julian Edelman, Jerod Mayo, Vince Wilfork, Rob Gronkowski, Stephen Gostkowski, and so much more.

More from Mike Reiss of ESPNBoston.com:

"Bill Belichick's blind spots as a personnel man are well known," Daugherty writes. "The greatest football mind of the 21st century can't draft wide receivers or cornerbacks to save his life. But when Belichick looks in the rear-view mirror, the only object closer than it appears is his fourth Super Bowl title. Even the best have weaknesses, but no one in today's NFL can match Belichick's strengths."

What's more, not one of the Patriots' offensive starters from Super Bowl XLIX were first round picks other than Nate Solder.

That's a damn good GM for you.
