    Why are the Pats giving away some good picks that may make the Chargers possibly stronger? - Whats up with this? - I don't understand

    I think the point of making a trade is that both teams (potentially) improve.

    2nd rounder next year and a 5th this year. Looks like a great deal to me.

    because they're reloading on picks. and the pick was better value than any player.

    i knew something like this was gonna happen

    Yeah but they took Jacob Hester who would have made the perfect Patriot. :(

    Yup, that's right. They just gave the pick away. Would you wait until we find out what the Patriots got before the sky falls, please?

    Got the Chargers second rounder next year. Nice deal.

    I like it. It'll be a high 2nd rounder, but obviously the Pats aren't crazy about the third round this year enough to want three players out of it.

    You can't make decisions based on that. It's stupid. There have been times when the Sox and Yanks would have been perfect trade partners, but the fans would have their heads explode. If you can make a deal that helps you (picking up a 2nd rounder next year in this case when we will need to replace even more old bodies), you do it-- whether it helps the Chargers is not your concern.

    I guess that was not too bad - More reason to hope the CHargers suck this year - but I doubt it,They look to be pretty good so it may be a pick somewhere in the late 50s/early 60s - hopefully not mid 60s :eek:

    That's an excellent deal. The 2nd rounder may well be a high one, but it's a second rounder all the same.

    Re: Pats trade 69 to Chargers for

    This is a perfect example of how BB-SP operate and why they are so successful. They set up the '09 draft with an extra 2nd rounder, and at the same time fill the only hole in today's draft board, as we'd traded away our 5th yesterday. SD had no picks today until the 5th, so they were desperate to do something.

    We have another 3rd that'll be up in few minutes.

    Great move.

    payroll management at this stage, i'm guessing they think they can get who they want later on.

    A HIGH second rounder? -

    You mean you think the Chargers are going to suck this year? - Wishful thinking

    Considering they have 2 more picks this round, it wasn't a bad idea at all.

    There's several tempting players on the board right now: Connor, Avril specifically. I'm hoping one is still on the board when they pick again at R3P15

    Considering this is the 6th pick in the 3rd round how many picks forward will this 2nd round be in next years draft considering it's the Chargers? 10? 12? I'd like this better if it was a team like the 49ers.

    So many good players still on the board.

    I really like this deal. Anyone drafted by this team will have an uphill battle to make the team. I dont think we need 3 3rd rounders this year. Hopefully, The chargers sputter a little bit next year. Could be a nice asset to have. Especially if we want to try and move up in next years first or hell maybe we could roll it over again into a future first.

    That deal makes no sense.

    The Chargers project to be one of the better teams in the NFL next year. Say they have the 29th pick in the 2nd round next year for example. How did the Patriots really help themselves when there are still quality players on the board this year?

    To me they are being too cute with this trade.

    That may be, but, FWIW, the Pats like if not love all the RBs they currently have.

    This is exactly my thinking.

    This translates to: the Draft SUCKS this year.

    Just like it SUCKED last year.

    Of course, the Patriots said that this year's draft would be deep.

    If you're 70 players in and you're not enamored with a player at this pick, then that doesn't speak well for what's left. I've seen this movie before with the Patriots. The Chargers will be picking 28-30 next year. That means this 3rd comes 10 picks later than next year's 2nd. That's not enough for me not to take a player NOW in a supposedly deep draft.

    Can't understand it unless Belichick is down on the available talent.

    If that pick ends up where we all expect it to, if the Pats can turn it into a first in 2010, I'd probably do backflips all the way up to Foxboro. :)

    Sweet.

    My take: They got their guy in Wheatley, they still have a high 3rd and a low third.

    Also, I wouldn't be at all surprised to see Diego fall apart. People underestimate the awful chemistry of whiners and finger pointers on that team and in their front office.

    Obviously not a guarantee, but I'll throw it out there.
