Re: Will BB trade #7 for 1st rounder next year?

cornerbacks, linebackers, and a tight end.
I can't believe that the Pats would want to wait more than 30 draft
selections before they made their first pick. The Pats under BB have
had pretty good luck with the selections they have made in the first
round but have had a mixed bag with regard to players drafted in
the second and third rounds.
I would rather see them trade down to a team with a choice in the top
fifteen and then combine picks to draft up in later rounds.
I agree with everything you said, we need the number 7 pick to fill big holes in the defense. This draft isnt like past years where we could just take the best available player at any position, we need help at both ILB and OLB and at Corner. You cant sacrafice loosing out on top talent this year and hope we get a top ten pick next year for a player the team might night even be able to get or even like for that matter. We have holes to fill and the time is now not next year.
