    We are lumbered with the 7th pick. There are 6 draftees who are worth the packages they are likely to get. Which means that for us to be in a power of strength, we have to hope that one of them falls like Brady Quinn. Which wont happen.

    So... we have no.7. Is anyone interested in drafting up? No.

    So... do we draft a CB who most people wouldnt draft? And the LB's arent worth a 7th pick package.

    Here is a long shot. New England use their 7th pick on a projected 5th\6th rounder. If the agent asks for silly money, we cut him before offering a contract. What do we lose? Nothing... We draft again in the 2nd for a player who is looking for a 2nd rounders financial package. Not someone who is looking for a contract they arent worth.

    I'm telling you. I am pretty sure that the Pats have a shady trick up their sleeve if someone like Ghoulston isnt on the board at 7.

    Overanalyzing your way into the basement.

    If the Pats don't want the pick, they can simply run out the clock and pass until they get to pick in the spot they really want. I don't even see that happening.

    They'll pick at #7 if they can't trade it.

    Gotta love it. I bet we package #7 with Brady to get the #1 so we can take Matt Ryan to keep him out of Parcells hands!

    Re: How is this for a scenario ???

    I'm not sure whats a better idea...This one or the people who were happy we got the #7 pick instead of the #1 pick because they believed they could get more for the #7 when trading down than they would've for the #1.

    I like your idea though; we should do it with every round.
    1st round: Draft a second rounder
    2nd round; Draft a third rounder
    and so on

    Awesome!

    Out of all the sharp-witted responses to this absurd post (and there were some zingers, yes!), you brought it home quicker than anyone else.

    My hat's off to you....:D

    Instead of your scenario, Why not just draft the best guy available at 7, but before drafting him try to convince him to take #12-#15 money or we go with someone else......whovere we pick, try to pay him less than #7 is slotted for. At least under this scenario, if things work out, we get the 7th best guy instead of the 5th round talent and if it doesn't work out, the 7th best guy has to sit out season and can't help anyone else....

    Obviously these are both ridiculous, but I think if you really feel this way - then this might make more sense.....

    This might be the funniest thread I've ever read on this board. I can picture it now...

    "With the 7th pick in the 2008 NFL Draft, the New England Patriots select FB Brandon McAnderson from Kansas."

    So... are you telling me that the CB's on offer are worth the money of a 7th pick? :singing:

    And who would come knocking for Pats' 7th pick? Why would they need it? The 6 men who warrant first round money are likely to have been picked by the time NE are on the board.

    This sounds like something the Jets would come up with. Remember Belichick and Pioli are not idiots.

    "Chicago later traded this selection [#37 overall] to San Diego [used to draft Eric Weddle] for their second-round selection (62nd overall, used to select Dan Bazuin), their third-round selection (93rd overall, used to select Garrett Wolfe), their fifth-round selection (167th overall, used to select Kevin Payne), and their third-round selection in the 2008 NFL Draft."

    The question is not if there's a team interested in drafting up--the question is whether or not the price will be right.
