    Charlie Casserly? Who's been wrong more than him. He's right about as often as a meteorologist. -BB

    I can NOT comment on the talent level but I do agree with him on this point

    "With all that extra time in between the rounds, that will lead to more trades."

    This is the year for the Patriots to hold onto their picks

    rather than enrich other teams.

    Great now Belichick will trade all of his 2010 picks for future picks just to spite Casserly.

    The "enriching of other teams" to which you refer is how we ended up with three #2s in this strong draft.

    A trade off occurs. The other team is enriched short term and we have to wait a year or more before we are enriched.

    I think that the new draft format will make the Pats a big time player in trades. If you think about it, assuming that the Pats don't trade up in the first round. They will have from say midnight Thursday to Friday night to entertain offers for anyone of their 3 2nd round picks.

    The patriots have from NOW until Friday night to entertain trade offers for the three Round Two picks.

    Yeah, but after the first round is over, teams are going to target the players that are left, much like there is always some movement at the begining of the second day of the draft (what used to be the first pick in the second round) this will now move to the second round. Whereas before the second round started five minutes after the 32nd pick, now it starts 20 hours later......

    They usually trade for players not picks. Until the first round is over they can't trade for players without knowing who's gone.

    OTOH, Belichick has said that unlike most teams, he is comfortable with trading up without a specific target in mind; of course, I don't think he'll trade up or down before the draft starts.

    The Patriots do not start off this post season with a rock solid
    roster. Lots of holes need to be filled. Every free agent they
    lose will create another hole. I think that this year the Patriots
    need to concentrate more on the 2010 season than future seasons.

    That's fine and you may be right depending on how FA goes. But snotty remarks about trading down are silly when you look at the values we've often gotten. Look at the trade downs from last year and what those picks turned into (hint : #2s this year) and they're tough to argue with. Arguing that we need to draft better is far stronger that we need to stop trading down.
