    No mortars and hand grenades.
    Looking at the Draft Pick Value Chart, the Pats have 4 big time picks ranging in value from 780 to 370. After the 2nd round, their tradable picks have values of 57,16,2,and 2.
    56 points (4th rd, #119) can move the Pats from #22 to maybe #20....or ahead 6 spots in the second round. If they spend their 4th, that's it until the 6th round...day 3 of the draft.
    My point...BB has little control over who he can pick and must let the draft come to him. Since we are accustomed to BB's "Let's Make a Deal" drafting, Check out the teams in the 3rd round with multiple picks. Tenn, Cincy, and Atl have 2 picks including a supplemental. Arizona and Philly have two tradable picks in the 3rd.
    And then there's Cleveland.... three 3rd rounders (and three 5th rounders). BB could trade out of the 1st and potentially get a 2nd (#38), a 3rd (#71), and a 5th (#160)....520+235+28=783 verses the 780 for #22.
    Or swap a Pats 2nd for a pair of Cleveland 3rds.
    Speculation: If teams are targeting the 3rd QB on the depth chart(Tebow or McCoy)...and I do feel that Tebow's stock is climbing, the #22 pick may have considerably more value than chart points...and BB now has some real ammo to work the draft like a maestro. Should be interesting.

    Yup. I am sure that the Patriots will try pretty hard to get a third round pick probably by trading down. We may be faced with the prospect of no NE picks on Thursday night.

    I'm not sure of your point. The patriots have more ammunition (value points) to trade with this year than in most years. We certainly can trade away one of our seconds for a 3rd, 4th and a 5th if we want more picks. As you point out, we could trade our 1st if that seems right.

    Or, we could us one of our seconds to move up in the first.

    Or we could trade two seconds to get a second first round pick (the reverse of 2009).

    The way I see it, we have more flexibility than ever.

    Tebow is his own unique case but McCoy is clearly the last really good QB, after him it's total suckage at the position. I would think some teams will be very interested in trading up to get him if they need a QB with his skill set (he won't appeal to everyone with that popgun arm).

    A bunch of QB "could" be good but there's no other QB who you could draft with reasonable confidence that he's your guy long term. There's Bradford, Clausen, McCoy, the Wildcard (Tebow) and a bunch of maybe, longshot types.

    Heck, the Patriots gave up a 4 and a 6 to move up from #47 to #40.
