    We've only got a 7th as a "late-round pick" haven't we?

    My recollection from his scouting report is that he's a good possession receiver.

    if it's a 7th rounder, I like it. Impossible to backfire.

    Schefter now says it's a late 2015 draft pick.

    can't say I know anything about him. Ill assume this has McDaniels written all over it.

    Actually a 2015 pick, says Schefter.

    Halas is 6'1" and ran a 4.53 40 last year. Also of note is his 6.65 3-cone.
    Averaged 44 YPG in each of his 6 games before breaking his fibula. Was a slot guy last year who played outside this offseason.

    I like it. I also called this yesterday ;)

    Also:

    Full on youth movement with almost our entire offensive core intact, and a younger, faster, generally more athletic defense.

    I specifically remember watching this guy at the combine last year. While I'm no expert, even my wife (who isn't really an NFL fan), said to me: "He reminds me of Wes Welker."

    There is no question in my mind that this is a potential Welker succession plan, or at least a shot in the dark to see if it works.

    Meanwhile, Gaffney and Branch can't be happy right now, and I wonder if their loyalty and "Patriots only" mantra will start to fade fast. All I can say is the Patriots are the worst evaluators of talent at WR and CB in the NFL- fortunately, they are still the best organization in sports and no team hits 100%- but seriously, if this means Gaffney, Branch, Stallworth, and Gonzalez were all just bad moves, they need to bring someone in who knows the position.

    I was under the impression that you could trade picks for as long as there is a CBA agreement (i.e., both sides agree to a draft). If that's correct then you could in theory trade draft picks nine years into the future!

    Suffering from grass is greener syndrome, I see. The Pats haven't been great, but there are a lot of bad teams out there. Look at what the Phins have right now at WR, for example. They traded for a proven guy and even he didn't work out.

    EDIT: To those worried about how deep our WR cuts were

    I'm as free-thinking a football fan as the next guy..

    But some of you need to get a little more in the In Bill We Trust frame of mind.. at least in the wait in see department.

    This looks like a good pickup!

    Not even a late-round pick.

    A late-round puck. :D

    Might actually have some potential. Caught 27 passes in 6 games on the Rams as a rookie.

    I assume you mean drafting? They get good to great recieves via other methods, does'nt matter how they get here as long as they get here.
