Our 2006 draft position, by round
From Reiss's blog, http://www.boston.com/sports/footbal..._take_5th.html
(Gotta love having six picks in the first four rounds, although knowing BB it's doubtful we'll use them all.)
A look at the picks:
Round 1 -- 21st, assigned selection
Round 2 -- 20th, assigned selection
Round 3 -- 11th, from Baltimore*
Round 3 -- 22nd, assigned selection
Round 4 -- 9th, from Detroit**
Round 4 -- 21st, assigned selection
Round 5 -- 3rd, from Oakland***
Round 5 -- 20th, traded to Browns for WR Andre' Davis
Round 6 -- 22nd, assigned selection
Round 7 -- 21st, assigned selection
* The Patriots' first 2006 third-round pick (the 11th selection of the round) was acquired from the Baltimore Ravens on April 23, 2005 along with a 2005 third-round pick (84 overall -- CB Ellis Hobbs) and a 2005 sixth-round pick (195 overall -- Traded to Green Bay) in exchange for a 2005 second-round pick (64 overall -- T Adam Terry).
** The Patriots' first 2006 fourth-round pick (the ninth selection of the round) was acquired from the Detroit Lions on April 24, 2005 in exchange for a 2005 fifth-round pick (145 overall -- QB Dan Orlovsky) and a 2005 sixth-round pick (206 overall -- DE Jonathan Goddard).
*** The Patriots' first 2006 fifth-round pick (3rd in the round) was acquired from the Oakland Raiders on April 24, 2005 along with a 2005 seventh-round pick (230 overall -- QB Matt Cassel) in exchange for a 2005 sixth-round pick (175 overall -- DT Anttaj Hawthorne).
There is also the possibility the Patriots could receive additional compensatory choices, which have yet to be determined.
Once again there's plenty of ammo in the picks for BB to move up and take specific players he needs or to make deals to improve 2007's picks if needed. Gotta luv it. What I also love is that he totally confounds draftnik experts by drafting guys he wants 'too early'. Sadly, he's had extra time to focus on the draft this year.
The 2006 5th round pick that was traded to the Browns for Andre Davis was a conditional pick.
Does anyone know what the condition was?
Is it set in stone that Cleveland has that pick?
