    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:

    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.

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

    I would think if we trade #23 we will either trade it for a
    (1)2010 First Round Selection OR,
    (2)To move back in the draft to around 40ish

    If scenario 2 occurred, the draft value chart says #23 = 760pts....#40=500 and #72 = 230 points (that teams 3rd round selection)...#136 (38pts) we would have for example

    34, 40, 47, 58, 72, 89, 97 (untradeable), 124, 136, 170 (untradeable), 199, 207 (untradeable), and 234 (13 picks)

    Here, it'd be fun because you know we would have to trade a bunch of picks. What I would do is try to trade another few picks to get into the 2nd round for the 5th time

    Example

    Trade 72 and 89 and the value chart gets you all the way up to 53. Add 124 and 136 and that gets you all the way to 44. Obviously you need a team willing to trade, probably one that is short on Picks. Washington wouldve been great had they had a 2nd rounder.

    This would give up 34, 40, 44, 47, 58, 97, 170, 199, 207, 234 (10 picks)

    We'd probably still have to trade some picks

    May happen (there's much recent precedent of course), but I this is PFT guesswork, imo.

    We would still have 3 picks, and that's if they don't get another 2nd rounder this year. Most teams only have 2.

    If the Pats are really targeting a LB or S it would make sense for them to move down. The value at that position is really in the early 2nd.

    I've already said I would rather them trade out and get a 1st round pick next year when we are going to need quality players with all the FAs possibly leaving.

    The next rumor is that the Patriots will look to trade all their picks so that BB can go to Bermuda for the weekend.

    Trading all their picks would definitely free up some time to do that!

    Consider Gosselin's 3rd mock. He is the best over the past 5 years at doing the 1st round mock, even though he has us choosing the BPA this year, and everyone thinks he's an idiot because CLEARLY Belichick doesn't pick the Best Player Available.

    The value at 23 is Jerry, Maualuga, Wells, Hood, E. Brown, and D. Brown. I'd be fine with this choice. Perhaps belichcik would rather consider trading down.

    When things settle out, I think the Patriots will have one pick

    per round. There is a good chance no more than four draftees

    make the team.
