If they use #7 for a corner then why not pay a little more to keep Asante and keep the pick? Basically using the #7 on a corner will more or less keep the defense at the status quo. I won't see a huge jump for the defense. We'll keep asking when the Pats are going to draft a linebacker in the higher rounds. I could live with a corner if they trade down and accumulate extra picks. To use the #7 for an corner straight up will mean huge guaranteed money and contract. I'd rather see that money go to a known commodity. So my assessment is Asante is gone, so I hope #7 is a linebacker, Jake Long or just trade down. Please no corner with #7.
