I have a small challenge for those of you who know the draft. This is all just an abstraction ... don't need to figure which team(s) would be the actual counter-party in a trade. It is not real-world, so much as it suggests what could happen in the real world. First, using the conventional values chart ... how many total points do the Pats have? (Ignore possible comp picks - not tradeable.) If Belioli could convert all those points into fewer, higher-quality picks ... what is a representative collection of the resulting draft positions? (That is, say 1500 total value points could become Numbers 28 + 42 + 65 + 88 ... something along those lines.) With such a hypothetical collection of fewer, but higher picks ... what is a short list of the Pats-type players on whom we might reasonably use all those picks? (The answer would be in the form of "some 4 of the following 7 guys" or "5 of these 10 should be available at those spots when they come up". This exercise takes mouth-watering all the way to gorging the imagination. Wish i knew enough to start it off. But some of you do! With gloomy CBA non-news everywhere else ... Is this interesting enough to play?
