    Did the Pats trade #75 to move up to #37, or #86? If they traded #75, isn't that too much according to the Value Chart?

    Ouch. #37= 530 pts, #52=380 pts, and #75=245 pts. 380 + 245= 625>530. Did Green Bay throw in any other later round picks?

    Who cares? That value point thing is ludicrous. Different players are more valueable to different teams. I'll take a potentially super weapon for Brady even if it means losing a draft pick. The point method doesn't account for the fact that they dont have to overpay for a Javon Walker, either.

    Your attitude about draft picks seems cavalier. My question is valid.

    I really wish they had been able to keep the earlier pick. It seems as if GB needed to make a move more than NE realized...maybe. Regardless, they certainly have done well with the trade. I don't imagine we'll move up any more...

    The Pats traded their #52 overall pick and #75 overall for the #36 overall from Green Bay.

    To answer your question according to my value chart the Pats paid 595 points for the #36 pick which is worth 540 pts. So they gave up 55 pts in value to get the GUY they wanted. 55 pts is worth about a mid 4th rounder.

    Considering how little chance a 4th rounder has to make the team and the Pats still have their 3rd round pick and TWO 4th round picks left, this move gives up an inappreciable amount of value to get imo a 1st round talent WR in the 2nd. Great value trade!!

    Maroney + Jackson = Brilliant!! Unexpected but brilliant draft by BB :)

    Im reminded of BB's comments of moving up for a player, not for a pick.

    A week ago posters were advocating moving up from 21 to 13 to take Jackson before Denver got him. Now we quibble?!

    Simply put: To give up 55 points to move up to get Chad Jackson at #36, who was projected as a much higher pick is just plain stealing..... 55 points means nothing, getting a high quality pick at 36: Priceless!:rocker:

    55 pts seems like a lot to give up to me. I wonder if Greenbay demanded pick no. 75. I guess it doesn't matter because the Pats probably would have wasted No. 75 on David Thomas anyway.
