Goddamnit. Can we use our ******* picks?
I was just thinking the exact same thing. BB must feel that none of these guys were likely to make the team...only question I have is what is the point of stockpiling picks still(we still have 9) when if you weren't happy with the talent in 1-3 why in hell would you like the talent on day 2? Baffling to me.
Wow. It has now become obvious the Pats weren't satisfied with the talent in this year's draft.
Bump for those who missed the details last night.
i'm acutally kind of glad. This draft just seems like its loaded with players that dont deserve the money they are getting.
It actually makes sense if you accept the "value group" theory that permeated the board last year. Perhaps there are more players that are rated by Pats' scouts as fourth rounders. Still out there:
There's still some good football players there...
I'm okay with this. BB obviously feels that this draft class is nothing special, so hell, why not invest in the future when we will have a higher pick in a potentially better class?
why give more money to a frist round pick when they are all going to be backups to are now all pro team now that we got moss forget how many yerds brady will pass for i think #39 will have a 1800 yerd season
Dang, I really like this trade. We will be real players in next years draft. Assuming a mediocre year for SF, and a typical crap year from the Raiders, we will have two 1st's, maybe #15 & 30, plus a 2nd and two 3rd's, one of which will be right at the top of the round. We could probably get into the top 10 next year if the Pats saw someone special.
It doesn't seem like good value just going by rounds, but the Raiders seventh was the first of the round, and I cant see anything keeping their 2008 third from being anything lower than the 3rd-5th pick in round three. It could even be the first pick of round three, which is almost a second rounder. So, NE gave up a late '07 third for the first pick of round seven in '07 and likely a top 5 '08 round three pick.
