    If we get Sanders.

    So what do we do?
    Trade down?
    Only draft four players, two that will be unlikely to even make the roster?
    Trade Mallet?

    Either trade picks for very good player/players and go all in this year or hope we have good selections that don't turn out to be busts.

    If they get Sanders and a pass rusher, then there's not really any position of dire need on the roster. A trade down to load up on second and third round picks would make sense given this class. That seems to be a good range for OL and DT depth, which is where my main concern is right now.

    Use the first rounder and trade the other 3 picks for 3 picks a round better in the following draft. Sign a bunch of Undrafteds and Bob's your uncle..;)

    They still need impact players on the D line. 3-4 DE, 3-4 DT, 4-3 DE, 4-3 DT. I really don't care.

    I think that they have brought in a ton of youth the last few years and if there was a time they could afford a small class it would be now.

    That said I would not be surprised to see anything. Trade Mallet to pick up something. The end of the first round has potential for trade if the QBs slip so there could be some good value there.

    To be honest I wouldn't be shocked to see them trade one of their top 2 picks to better stock up next year as BB needs to start flipping them again or he will be light every year.

    The middle of this year's draft looks quite strong. I imagine the Patriots will trade out of the first round and into the middle rounds this year. Then again, BB punked us all in 2012.

    Good point. Mix in some young, but NFL experienced players and vets as our former picks reach prime years.

    Belichick will trade both the top 2 picks into next year ... :drum:

    I predict that Belichick will trade out of the first round. I believe that there will be a team or teams that attempt to trade back into the first round for a player that they like who's still available at twenty-nine.

    Either you try to acquire a high second round pick and a fourth round pick, or a first round pick in 2014 in exchange for your first round pick this year. Or you accept your own picks and draft accordingly. For example...

    First round - (29) Johnathan Hankins or Johnthan Banks
    Players such as Jesse Williams, John Jenkins, Jonathan Cooper, Matt Elam, Jonathan Cyprien and Desmond Trufant are unlikely to be available.

    Second round - (59) Margus Hunt or Darius Slay
    Third round - (91) Barrett Jones

    Seventh round - Braden Brown and Joe Kruger
