    If Ryan falls to Baltimore at No. 8, it would be as perfect a fit as Ben Roethlisberger's falling to the Steelers at No. 11 in 2004.

    We've got a bit more cap space now after all of the cuts that have been made. Baltimore needs a QB and Matt Ryan falls right in the Patriots #7 range. I know I've brought this up before, but I think this would be a great swap for the Patriots if we could get Chris McAlister and if the draft falls as predicted.

    Thoughts?

    Baltimore has no incentive to move up one spot unless the Pats can convince them that Carolina or (less likely) Chicago is about to move up.

    And isn't McCallister making a boatload of money?

    Co-sign. We're not a threat to take Ryan, so unless we can bluff that someone else is willing to trade, they'll stay put. Never been in a draft war room, so not really sure how this scenario would play out.

    The Pats moved up one spot to take Ty Warren but I think they were afraid of someone else moving up over them to get him.

    If we trade with Carolina, where do we go pick wise. Do we hope to get Mike Jenkins or does the Colvin cut lean us towards a linebacker such as Lofton

    Seems like you found a logic swing point....If Ryan falls we could luck out and find a trading partner. Save some money, possible get the same guy and a few extra picks. This would be Ideal so lets hope Ryan falls.

    If we trade with baltimore, we'd likely get a 4th and a 7th in return.

    I'd expect a lot more than that. Dropping 7 spots from the top of the draft to the middle is worth a LOT more than a 4th.

    There are about 8 studs in this draft, and then a bunch of really good players.

    I'd rather by between 5-8 and then 20 and above.

    Ryan, McFadden, Gholston, etc. early.

    The CBs and LBs can be gotten in the 20s.

    Dallas is really stupid to even think of trading those picks. They are already set up in the sweet spot where they won't be overpaying for guys that could be 1st round tweeners.

    According to the draft value chart pick #7--1500 points while pick #13 is 1150.
    The difference of 350 points is the 55th pick in the draft or a low second rounder......or maybe their first next year ( hey they've done it before with the Pats...)

    :confused:

    Baltimore at #8--dropping down ONE spot--would require something like a 4 and a 7 (big whoop).

    Swapping picks with Carolina at #13 or Chicago at #14 would probably cost them their 2008 2.

    it actually doesnt matter what the Ravens want or can give for our pick if Chi or Car give us their 2nd plus their 1st the Ravens have to step up. that why the Patriots wont even talk to Bal they will let Bal come to them by actively talking to Car, Chi, SF,...

    That does seem like the more likely scenario to me... someone jumping ahead of Baltimore.

    This is what makes the SpyGate punishment hurt is that BB/SP could just trade the #7 pick this year for a 1st and 2nd rounder next year knowing that we still have #31 this year. But I would think that the Pats would not want to go this year without having a pick in the top 60.

    only in Baltimore will a heisman trophy winner be regarded as inadequate to be a starter, i kinda feel sorry for troy smith, he has the talent, but he's too short,BULLSH!T, he could become the QB version of Maurice Jones Drew

    If we do a deal with Caronlina I'd like to get Ken Lucas in return.
