    Wow would they really consider giving up a second round pick for Welker?
    Is he worth that much?

    I like Welker but am not thrilled at the price of a #2 pick.

    I'm not going to second guess anything BB or Pioli do, but I don't know if he's worth a 2nd rounder. (Is that second guessing?)

    Pats eye Welker

    Continuing with their aggressive approach in free agency that already landed linebacker Adalius Thomas and tight end Kyle Brady, the Patriots are now expected to court restricted free agent receiver Wes Welker.

    Welker enters his fourth season in 2007, having played his first three seasons with the Miami Dolphins. He was tendered a one-year, $1.3 million contract by Miami.

    If the Patriots sign him to an offer sheet, and the Dolphins elect not to match it, the team would have to surrender a second-round draft choice.

    Welker totaled a career-high 67 catches for 687 yards last season. He had nine catches for 77 yards against the Patriots on Oct. 8.

    Wesley Walker? Man, I thought he retired from the Jets years ago. (kidding, look at your thread title)

    Welker would be okay. Pretty good slot receiver replacement for Brown and great special teams guy.

    So the pats give the Phins a second round draft pick. They then look at the draft landscape, knowing that they have filled two immediate needs and if the right player(s) aren't there in round 1, they parlay one of the 1st round picks into the second round and future picks. I like it.

    To give up a second is huge, especially with the strength of this draft. This may be an indication that they are more than likely going to trade out of the #28 spot to get a second that they will have to give up in order to get Welker.

    Re: Reiss Blog: Patriots to meet with WR Wes Welker

    He's a great #2 receiver with sure hands and speed, and a top notch return man and special teamer, as well as being a great character guy. He'd immediately upgrade the return game (and with Maroney going to full time RB status this year, that was necessary) and the passing game. I think he's better than anything the Patriots could get in the 2nd round like a Robert Meacham, and he's far more NFL-ready, and young (he's what, 25, 26?) to boot.

    Welker is a nice player but I don't think he is worth a 2nd, especially with the good players who are likely to be available there in this draft.

    Re: Reiss Blog: Patriots to meet with WR Wes Welker

    I'd give a 2nd for the Wanker. BB is attracted to him, not because he's an attractive young boy but because he's versitile. And signing him hurts a division rival.

    Name the last Patriots round 2 draft pick who wasn't a bust.
    Dillon, and we traded for him.
    I'd consider taking a guy whose proven he can play, is multi-role versitile and hurts your competitor.

    I love Welker's intensity for the game, and his return ability, don't know if he'd be the type of "RECEIVER" I'd want. Maybe a good 4th receiver/slot type guy, but I'm not sure. I rather go after Stallworth, or even Kelley Washington (probably cheaper than Welker). Welker is a Patriot type though, does many things.

    Re: Reiss Blog: Patriots to meet with WR Wes Welker

    This is starting to smack of panic on the Patriot's part.

    Some might say, justifiably so, that the Pats prepared well and identified their targets in preparation for the opening of FA...and they would be right on the preparation. But....this would stretch even my extreme "in Beoli we trust" view to the breaking point if we were to give up a #2 for Welker. He is a nice player, but not worth a #2. As for hurting the Fish....who cares really...they will be buried in the basement anyway.

    I would pee in this kool-aid and wouldn't even think of drinking it on this move if we give up a 2nd.

    They haven't done anything yet they are just looking into it, and I can't balme them for that.

    With two picks in the 1st round, the Patriots can afford to be aggressive and give up a #2 for a good player like Wes Welker.

    I'm kind of up in the air on this one. I love Welker and all that he brings to the table, but I'm not sure about giving up a second for him. He sure would look good returning kicks for us and making some exciting, clutch plays (like he's done against us), but I still have to think about it.

    Thats my read too. I really like him as a player. Is he a 2nd rounder? Seems high, but I sure as hell dont know. BeliPioli do and I respect that. Hes still young. Why not?
