    Both jets and 49'ers finish 2-14. Pats win the coin flip to break the tie. Pats pick first, jets pick second.

    And, of course, the jets' pick tears both acl's and both achilles walking to the stage.

    Don't be ridiculous.....


















    The Jets pick can't tear his achilles until after he signs his contract.

    Re: Best case draft scenario

    There would be no coin flip in this scenario. The Pats would get the first pick.

    Largely because they played the Pats twice, the Jets would almost certainly have a stronger strength of schedule, and lose the tie breaker.

    [EDIT: I meant the Jets would have a stronger SOS than SF]

    If San Francisco finishes with two or three wins, they are likely to win any tie breaker outright.

    Re: Best case draft scenario

    I really don't see what the big difference is between #1 and #4 except for the fact that the #1 pick will get much more money and take up way more cap space. I'd rather have the #3 or #4 pick over the #1 pick, unless there was a 100% guarantee we would be able to trade down from #1 to prevent having to sign some unproven rookie a salary that a proven all pro commands. If you look at the history of the draft, the #1 guy is almost NEVER the best player when everything plays itself out over the next 4-5 years. Usually the only time the #1 player does in fact turn out to be the best pro is when it is a quarterback like Peyton Manning or Troy Aikman. I will be ecstatic if they get the #3 or #4 pick, which is exactly what I think they will get. The only guy I even think is worth the money that high is Darren McFadden and I'm still not sure if the Pats want to pay a running back that kind of money.

    Re: Best case draft scenario

    The trade value of a #1 pick is MUCH higher.

    High picks didn't move much in the recent draft, because teams aren't willing to pay as much value as the draft pick value chart says they should, and GMs don't want to look like idiots by completing a deal which adherents to the chart (i.e. average fans and journalists) believe is foolish.

    BB could care less what the media thinks he just wants to win Superbowls. He'll gladly trade a top pick for more than its worth, but substantially less than the chart says its worth.

    In this scenario, the difference between the #1 pick and the #4 pick could easily be a 2009 first round pick or a pair of second round picks.

    Re: Best case draft scenario

    It's my understanding that this could be a very good year to have a top 5 pick due to a strong draft and some big-time assets - QB's like Brohm and Ryan, the LSU stud DL Dorsey and, as has been talked to death, Darren McFadden. Teams will pay up to land impact franchise players like that.

    Re: Best case draft scenario

    SF's strength of schedule would be used in the tiebreaker, not the Pats.

    49's draft Pick

    How is that first rounder looking now Mr Commish??
    Miami and Rams need to start winning some games.
    I know i am looking way ahead because the goal is to win the SB
    but i cant help but think of how much the nfl and other teams are pissed about Pats' draft for 08'

    Boy, those two late wins in their first two games are even MORE frustrating now. SF should be winless at this point.

    Re: 49's draft Pick

    There's already multiple topics on this. Is there a reason you went and made another one?

    Re: Best case draft scenario

    What the OP was alluding to was that the Jets' SOS would be much tougher than the 9ers', because the Jets play the Patriots twice.

    Re: Best case draft scenario

    The great thing about this draft is that we'd be able to trade down to, say, mid teens, and still get a superb player. All the top prospects play positions not coincidental with the Patriots' major areas of need, so we'll probably see stuff like three QBs going in the top 10, which can give us the opportunity to draft a guy like Laurinatis at, like, 16th because the teams picking before us had more urgent needs then a linebacker.

    Re: Best case draft scenario

    If we have to pick, I prefer it is at #4 or #5. There is no top 1 consensus prospect right now. So, we can get a darn good player at 4 or 5.

    SF and STL have another game. although 49's schedule looks pretty easy on paper

    Worst case scenario Pats will get the 5th pick but something tells me BB will trade it for a 2nd and 3rd picks or some soft of combination of different rounds.

    I think we need a solid DB and another linebacker
