    So far we have Welker, Meriweather, a 2008 1st and a 2008 3rd.

    We have NINE picks. I suspect that we will try to push as much as we can into 2008. We have to make at least three picks.

    There are certainly interesting players on the board at LB, at RB and in the defensive backfield. Some we posters gave been "targeting" for weeks:
    LB: DeOssie, Bishop, Siler
    DB: Wendling, Gattis, Jackson

    I would think that running backs Bush and Pittman need to be considered.

    and has the punter been picked?

    We actually have four compensatory picks. Whether we can garner anyone

    of value depends on whether we trade away one or both of our 4th

    round draft picks. If we trade them, we will have to go almost two more

    full rounds before we make a pick. At that point the remaining players will

    be the same value as undrafted free agents with virtually no chance of

    making the team. My guess is that the exodus of draft picks from 2007

    to 2008 will continue and we can write off the 2007 draft.

    I wouldn't mind if they traded a 4th rounder away for a third rounder next year. Stock up 2008. I love how they stockpile and upgrade picks which helps them stay ahead of the other teams. What other team consistently does this? This will help them stay ahead of curve.

    I'd be surprised to see another pick moved forward. There is good value on the back of this draft, and BB still needs 15+ players for Training Camp to flesh out the roster and create competition, may as well use those 9 picks to accomplish that as let them gather dust.

    Including Meriweather but not Troy Brown, the Pats have 70 players

    on their roster. Three do not count because they are NFLEuropa players.

    This means we have 13 spots to fill. Actually, we could probably sign 10

    more than that because I believe that the draft picks do not count until

    they are signed. Most of these spots will be filled with rookies because

    the cost of signing mostly veterans would be too high.
