We need Gholston OR trade that pick to Atlanta for 2 of their 2nd round picks - That would be sweet.
Are you suggesting we trade the #7 pick for 2-Second Round picks?
I believe Atlanta has picks 34 & 37. I know most people don't put much stock into the "Trade Value Chart" these days, but it's not even close.
The 7th pick is worth 1500 points.
The 34th pick is worth 560 & the 37th pick is worth 530 = 1090
That difference of 410 Points is a BIG one! Based on the chart, pick 49 carries a weight of 410 points.
I also have read that the Patriots may take less value than the chart suggests to move down. If all the players the Patriots believe are worthy of the #7 pick are gone, they will be willing to take less and move down. That said they will not be willing to get abused in the process (which would be taking pick 34&37).
Here would be a more reasonable trade:
Patriots trade # 7 to the Falcons for their #34 and 2008 1st round pick
Patriots trade # 7 to the Falcons for #34, #37 and their 2nd round pick in 2009
