    It looks like something that'll slide down the wall.

    Ugh, it's beginning to look like a wholly uninteresting day.

    Box, I think you're probably right but its just fun to watch the media chase their tails trying to figure out what the Pats are going to do...

    Well, if the Pats can get a two this year and a one the next, I'm all for trading out of #23.

    A repeat of the 2007 draft without a blockbuster trade for Welker

    and Moss.

    Ummm . . . the Welker theft was in the beginning of March. So the Pats had 24, 28, and 92—and then traded away 28 and 92.

    What about those 3 2nd round picks we've got in our pocket?

    Value.

    Speaking for myself, the one constant for me has been my lack of enthusiasm for the #23 candidates. I'm talking about those consistently ranked at or near #23. This is why I welcomed a trade down, to either add another pick this draft, and/or another in 2010.

    Yesterday's topic of focus would be my #1 hope. To add a top rated impact player to the roster at minimal cost in a tradeup, while still maintaining a boatload of picks is quite frankly -- a no-brainer.

    So moving #23 in either direction -- I welcome with open arms.

    Scott Pioli is looking for a #2 pick.

    And coincidentally, KC has shown a lot of interest in round two prospects. :cool:

    I thought that was the strength of this draft. :confused2:

    Sure, and that leaves us with 2, with 1 of them being practically a 1st round pick. What would you say to drafting a Chris Snee type player at 34? Me, I love the idea.

    The real strength of this draft are the late first all the way through round two prospects, and even seeping into round three. Where of course NE has 5 picks (R2 -3).

    Well, exactly. So I'm a little confused why you wouldn't want a good player at 23 for a reasonable price. That's the threshold of the strength of this draft.

    This is either going to be stellar or pretty ordinary isnt it

    Only problem being there's a long way from that last second to the first third (relative to where the other picks are).
