    is everything we're doing setting up for a big trade up high into the draft?

    its a possibility
    with all our draft picks
    maybe we'd be willing to give up a future draft pick too, considering next yrs draft isnt supposed to be that good

    personally, i dont think this will happen, but its a possibility

    who would it be for?
    aj hawk
    michael huff
    dbrick ferguson
    mario williams
    vernon davis

    I would never expect, or not expect, anything with the Patriots. With the rumors of Graham possibly being dealt, getting high enough to get Vernon Davis is at least interesting. With Belichick's love of TE, having Watson and Davis locked up for 4 years (that's what Watson has left) would have to leave Belichick drooling.

    What are the rumors regarding Graham being dealt?

    It was a few weeks ago, there was something on the (admittedly questionable) Patriots' scout website that said they were making inquiries about dealing him. I'll see if I can dig up the thread.

    Hmmm - interesting idea.

    This might be a good year to move up into the top 10 as well, since so many QBs are going to be taken there, pushing other top tier candidates lower

    But it would take a lot of ammunition in terms of draft picks for us to make that move as well. And historically we get better value from our Teen - Twenty picks anyways - in terms of quality players and affordable contracts.

    I'm not sure if a player would be involved but if one is thinking of packaging picks, here's a helpful website to help undertand the value assigned to each pick, and what package the Patriots might be capable of putting together

    If it had come from any other site than Scout.Com, it might have some credibility. Those guys over there are hacks. And I've felt that way ever since they did the Article in ESPN the Magazine on how to beat the Patriots, yet they focused on 2 formations that the Patriots use very infrequently. They focused on what to do when the Patriots were in the 4-3 and when the Patriots ran the 4 wide set.

    Not Davis, although I'm sure Belichick would love to have him, but really, he's just Ben Watson a couple years younger. And Watson is signed long term.

    I have a suspicion that Belichick drools about the thought of AJ Hawk in a Pats uni, but I don't think we can get high enough to grab him, or even if it's a good idea.

    I did see a mock draft that had us moving into the #8 (Buffalo) and taking Haloti Ngata, DT, Oregon.

    At 21 Buffalo's mock pick had taken: Mathias Kiwanuka, DE, BC

    While that's an interesting idea, I don't see any of the players you list fitting the scenario.

    BB/SP have never drafted an LB on the first day, I believe, and I can't see throwing most of the picks together to trade up for Hawk. He is a player, but that's not enough value in return.

    Williams and Davis are not players that the Pats likely want (Williams) or need (Davis), and I'd have to throw Ferguson in the same group. With Light and Koppen coming back, and two picks from last year in Mankins and Kaczur, I don't see Brick as a need player.

    Huff is intriguing, but, again, do you take most of your picks to move up for a safety? I doubt it.

    I could see a draft day deal involving picks and a player, say a #1+ for somebody like Andre Johnson, however.

    re

    I'm all for it, as long as the Pats don't trade away their 06 mid-round picks. People have written that this year's draft is EXTREMELY deep. If they do move up in the 1st round, I would rather see them trade away 2007 picks.

    Just don't see anyone that noteworthy to move up to get...but why trade Graham??? A solid blocker...maybe the best TE blocker??? Does not make sense...unless??? Well if CF was still here..I would say that would have a better possibility..but..really. NO and NO.
