    Wow, that STINKS if we're giving them anything other than a 3rd rounder.

    I wonder if this is, in some way, an indication that the Patriots are thinking of trading down from #21 and picking up an extra pick. Perhaps they see an opportunity to get two players they wanted to get anyway while picking up Walker along the way.

    According to John Tomase's blog, Walker was, in fact, NOT in Foxboro today. Looks like WEEI whiffed again.

    Or maybe Tomase is wrong? Or could it be EEI is wrong? Let's be honest, this organization is so guarded, I find it hard to believe anyone in the media knows who is in town and who is not unless they're staking out the airport and specifically, general aviation (small jets). Not likely.

    Tomase got his info from Fletcher Smith, the partner of Walker's agent. I would think he would be in the know more than Michael Smith.

    I'm not even going to guess. I don't think the Patriots like anyone to know anything, I could see Belichick telling his agent that if they confirm a visit, the visit is over. I really think Belichick is that paranoid about everything.

    Bill likes to keep everything on the low till its all done with. Last year we didnt know Brady had a hernia but they knew he did..we didnt know how bad anyones injuries really were..i didnt remember Faulk getting hurt against Pittsburgh but then sat out a lot of games with Broken Leg i believe. Its just the way he tries to handle stuff i guess..not make a big deal of out anything until its really there

    re

    Right on. Belichick grew up near the Naval Academy and is very much like a military commander.

    Both media reports may have some truth... maybe Walker did visit and it wasn't supposed to be leaked, and afterwards the 'official' story was released about his "non-visit".

    Could all be true, and might be except for one thing: It is WEEI you're talking about. Sorry, have to go with Tomase on this one until EEI shows me that can get things right (other than yelling at each other) more often.

    I dont think he met with the Pats but Tomase said that there is still a good possibiliyu of him meeting with the Pats. WEEI could be right...ESPN rumour page is reporting that the Patriots are taking more and more interest in Walker. Its all rumour but hey the Pats are trying to steal his attention from the Broncos.

    Good point patsox23: The Pats first 3rd round pick at the max. The good news is we know BB/SP don't like to shop on Newbury Street.

    I plausible trade option would be a 4th this year and a conditional 2,3,or 4 next year depending on Walkker's production based on games played and number of catches
