    ...we may be looking at the best Pats off-season ever.





    Well, maybe if we hadn't surrendered that seventh.

    FA so far has been excellent. The draft board isn't even stacked yet so we need to wait on that. As far as the 7th goes, there is only so many draft choices that we can squeeze onto the roster. You need to look at the total of the draft choices we currently have along with the compensatory picks that we will be awarded soon. Draft choices are barganing chips anyway, the point is to collect talent. The Pats had a clear opportunity to make a move that would make the team better, we currently have no one on the roster with Welker's skill set so we made the move to acquire him.

    2007 DRAFT ORDER
    The following draft order does not include Compensatory Selections, which will be awarded to clubs at the bottom of Rounds 3-7.
    Round One
    24th pick (24th Overall) - New England from Seattle
    28th pick (28th Overall) - New England (slotted pick)
    Round Three
    28th pick (90th Overall) - New England (slotted pick)
    Round Four
    28th pick (123rd Overall) - New England (slotted pick)
    Round Six
    6th pick (165th Overall)- New England from Arizona
    28th pick (187th Overall) - New England (slotted pick)

    It's been an amazingly smart free agency thus far (quickly upgrading 2 key positions (WR & LB), keeping TE strong despite losing Graham, keeping RB strong despite losing Dillon).

    You'd think so, but I've missed easier ones in my day.
