    Trade 24 and 28 to GB for 16 and 47 (I was talking about this on ESPN two weeks ago)

    With 16th overall take either: 1-Willis, 2-Carriker, 3-Nelson, 4-Lynch, 5-Moss, Revis, or Meachem.

    With 47th overall take either: Harris, Meriweather, Woodley, Bush, Leonard, Spencer, gonzo, McCauley, Weddle, an O-Linemen (basically whomever is there, and is the best value.) This would be much better than reaching for any of these players in the first, or taking an O-Linemen at 28, in my opinion.

    With 92 take Either Wendling, Josh Wilson, Desmond Bishop, Earl Everett, Craig Davis, Lorenzo Booker, or an O-Linemen. (basically whemever is there, and is the best value.)

    With 124th overall take Zak DeOssie, Gattis, Booker (if he falls), or BPA.

    In the fifth (comp expected) take DeOssie if he falls (doubt it), Dwayne Wright, or BPA.

    In the sixth take either Daren Stone, JD Nelson, DeAndre Jackson (if he falls), David Ball, or Abbate (if he last) with one of the picks, and then draft BPA with the remaining picks.

    NE is going to have ten draft picks so they should be able to draft a lot of talent. They could probably even give up a sixth, or even both sixth to move into the 12-14 range, and still have 8 draft picks.

    I want Willis more than anyone here, prolly. If he passes #14, then yes. He will most likely not make it to #21. The thing is, even if he was there at #21, I imagine the braintrust will infuriate me again.

    Trading into the 13-16 range you might even be able to get Landry. A lot of people are projecting him in the top ten but the teams they project him to have equal, or bigger needs at other positions. Some have him going up around 8th over, some 9th, or 10th overall, and some have him falling to 14th (Panthers).

    By trading into the 13-16 range NE would likely have their choice between some combination of these players: Landry, Willis, Carriker, Nelson, Moss, Revis, and some others.

    Getting the 47th pick overall from GB in a 2 for 2 deal would allow them an additional pick of a pretty high caliber prospect (See original post). Someone who they might have reached for at 28, anyways.

    NE could also keep both first rounders, but move at least one of them up into the 19-21 range. NE could take their 28th overall pick add 92nd overall to it and move up to 21st overall. They would then have 21st overall (where they've selected some good ones), and 24th overall. I like the first option better because they keep their third rounder, and their is going to be some good third rounders is this draft.
