    I know that we are suppose to post this in the draft forum, but there are so much more responsive posters here, so sorry guys. How much do you think it would take to move up to the 9th pick and grab Michael Huff out of Texas. Here's a pretty good review: http://www.nfldraftcountdown.com/scoutingreports/s/michaelhuff.html
    He's a ballhawk with sub 4.40 speed and a great tackler. I think he would be a perfect fit here, in many different ways. He would be the understudy to Harrison for a couple of years. He could start by playing free safety allowing us to move Wilson to cornerback, and once Rodney hits the wall and won't be able to do the job, we all know its gonna come within the next 2-3 years, he would be a great replacement. Also during the years Rodney can still get it done, we would have amazing flexibility by shuffling him around with Wilson between corner and safety. The kind of flexibility that BB has been known for.
    Personally, since we have extra pick in every round past the second, I could live with giving up to 4 draft picks. Possibly, the 1st, 3rd, 5th, and 7th for the 9th overall. I think that BB knew that this years draft class was full of talent and thats why he traded out of a few picks last year to gain this years picks. Plus we have a lot of cap and need a few great players as opposed to a lot of guality players. What do you guys think???

    More than the Patriots are willing to pay, so what else matters? Agreed that Huff would look great in a Pats uniform, but if it's going to take moving up to #9, then that almost definitely means giving up a #1 next year too, which they won't do.

    I doubt that would get us from 21 to 9. Without looking at a value chart, our #2 would likely have to be involved. I'd like Huff be I doubt we'll trade higher than 15. Which is why Chad Jackson piques my interest as a possible trade up as he may make it to 15-17.

    i too would love ed reed..., i mean michael huff ;)

    the thing is we couldnt trade to number 9, we'd have to at least trade to number 8 since the lions might take him at 9

    so here are some trades that could get us the number 8 pick by looking at value chart:

    Pats give: #21 overall in 06 and first rd pick in 07 and get: #8 overall in 06 and third rd pick in 06

    Pats give: first rd pick in 06, second rd pick in 06, later third rd pick in 06, and later fourth rd pick in 06 and get: #8 overall

    Pats give: first rd in 06, both third rders in 06, early fifth rder in 06, and third rd in 07, and get: #8 overall

    there are some other mix and matches they could do but you get the point

    I've heard that next year first round (in this case 2007) pick has only half the value of this year first round pick in trades.

    They won't move up, IMO, because you are sacrificing a chance to get two really good players, especially in what seems to be a deep draft. That's not to devalue Huff, but it is unlikely that he would be worth a first (say, Manny Lawson) plus the player not drafted (perhaps Joseph Addai, going off German Gilbert's mock).

    Great way to show respect and make friends on the board. Guess who just painted a target on his chest?

    I would trade up for him, even if Rodney comes back at 100%, IF Huff falls to 15 or so. Anything higher than that is too much. However he is that good. Except for height, he has all the qualities BB looks for in a player.

    Let's get this straight right now. The Patriots are not, I repeat, are NOT gonna give up 3 to 4 quality picks to move up to #8........ No way, No how!

    I had to reread that whole thread... what a hilarious farce. I'm a medical student, I'm not a medical student, I am a medical student but I just said I wasn't a medical student to see what you would say, no wait, I'm not a med student. Classic stuff, plus the thread where PATSummerallofthe80s came out of his Stiller's Troll Closet and our beloved Chowder offered up discount plastic surgery for true Patriots fans. :) Ahhh... good times. Why does that thread seem like it happened so long ago?

    It is purely guilt by association to say Huff will be yet another TXU bomb, but there have have been enough of them that I'd stay away from him, period, let alone trade up for him.

    Outside of QB's we have no interest in; Bush, Ferguson, Hawk, Davis, and maybe Mario Williams, are the only CERTIFIED (as far as pre-draft assessments can go) super elites in this draft. Trading up more than one or two spots for anyone else would be the exact measure of your GM's ineptitude. The type of player availible at 21 us is really no different than the player taken around number 10 - the hyped up QB's and the few other guaranteed stars will be long gone.
