    Give Belichick the precious...Cant see BB taking Peterson, he would probably still be there though.

    If i traded up that high, I would want Von Miller, Patrick Peterson, or Marcell Dareus. I rather trade to #10 and take Cameron Jordan.

    Miller and Dareus will go #2 and #3 IMO. I think the bold is very possible.

    I think they want Jordan. He may be rated higher than Fairley in some teams' eyes and is a threat to go before 10 (Cowboys especially).

    can't see us really trading up to #6, not enough value looking comparing the players who could be available at #9 or #10

    My guess is that this is like 2009—BB is seeing if there's anyone desperate enough to trade down that they're willing to take a below-chart deal.

    All these "rumors" about the Pats wanting to trade up have me convinced that it is not going to happen. I hope they do go up and grab an elite player, but I can't see it happening.

    I think this is the case. Since we have the ammo, we might as well call around to see how desperate teams are to trade back - maybe we get a great deal for the pick. I don't think it means that we want to do this, but rather determine if a team may be undervaluing their pick based on a desire to move down.

    I'm skeptical - it's either due dilligence or a smokescreen, IMO. If they did it, I'll be excited b/c I trust BB and know he generally knows what he's doing( ...and learned from his Chad Jackson mistake that you only trade up for guys with a strong commitment to the game. )

    Our roster does need quality, not quantity, so I'm not opposed to trading up as a philosophy this year.

    Right, it's mostly due diligence. Not to say that they won't make any such move. BB and the draft is one of the most unpredictable things in football.. but I would say it's just doing their homework and covering all the bases.

    On top of which I am sure they are aware of which organizations are sieves when it comes to keeping secrets.

    I love it, Mayoch calls Quinn an "elite talent with a probowl type impact"
    Robert Quinn - College Player - 2011 Player Profile -

    "A league source tells the Boston Globe that the Patriots have contacted the Browns about the No. 6 overall pick, with North Carolina DE/OLB Robert Quinn as their "likely" target."

    The other player they may make a move for which would be a total shocker is AJ Green.

    Quinn reeks of Gholston 2.0 to me.

    DeWayne Robertson, part deux. I don't buy it.

    Edit: Gholston was Robertson, part deux. This is the third go around.

    Belichick hates Miller's agent, so I doubt that's a possibility. He's moving up to target any one of Dareus, Fairley, Green, Jones, or Quinn. Either that or he's just doing his due diligence. Personally, if he is moving up, I hope it's for either Quinn or Dareus. That said, I expect Dareus to be gone by the time the Broncos pick.

    He reminds me of an outside linebacker from Dallas.

    Funny, he reeks of DeMarcus Ware to me. We'll find out soon enough.

    If the Pats had struggled last season with such a young team then I could see the reason to stockpile more picks into next year,but the fact remains that while his team is very young it has come off a 14-2 regular season campaign so it's not like he is in a total rebuild phase and has to draft as many players as he can.

    It's never good to be TOO young as an NFL team so it would make sense that BB decides to move up a pick or two and use up another pick at that time and take a player he feels will be a great one and fill a hole on an area that is in need...there are not many holes on this team so we don't need a lot of extra picks...if any.

    Next season and the way the draft will run is in total limbo..any team that vaults into next season by gambling draft picks into next season is diving into a pool that is only half filled with water....I think this team is smarter than that.

    Expect the unexpected as usual tonight and that may mean a change in the way NE shops around the draft......

    Nothing personal, but I never understand the "hater" mentality. For years people have complained about the Patriots trading back and how bad their pass rush is, etc.

    If the Patriots believe in Quinn, I believe in Quinn. Their pass rush sucks, you can go out and get twenty more run of the mill JAGS but in the NFL you need impact players.

    The defense would have the following talent
    Top 10 picks - Mayo, Quinn
    First round picks - Wilfork, Warren, Stroud, Merriweather, McCourty
    Second round picks - Cunningham, Brace, Chung, Spikes
    Probowl players - Mayo, Wilfork, Mayo, Merriweather

    Really there are no more excuses, get the edge rusher the need and then start kicking some butt.

    Pretty much how i see it. Belichik is doing due diligence to see who wants what for what.
