    Ok, BB is desperate. He couldn't sleep last night because he was so torn about what to do with this pick. He decided to randomly dial phone numbers until he got a Patriots fan with knowledge of this year's draft, and you're the lucky person. He asks you to tell him what to do.

    simple........use the #33 as part of a package to get Larry Fitzgerald from the Cardinals......

    The Cards need a QB more than they need fitzgerald, and at 34 and 35, the Bills and the Bengals who will be drafting QB's...... Dalton seems to be ahead of the rest.......

    the cards need to do something.........along with the #33 what else would it take to get Fitzgerald?

    Larry Fitzgerald was a top 3 pick in 2004. He's productive every single season and is a choir boy off the field. What you propose is so ridiculously slanted toward the Patriots that it would be daylight robbery given what transpired with Julio Jones. He'd be 2 1st rounders or a 1/2/3 you'd think.

    If it were to be pulled of then you're a genius!

    I know more would need to be applied, not to mention that players can't be traded (not until Monday, anyway

    I'm not sure fitzgerald will continue to be a choir boy if skelton is the best QB the cards have

    I'm with you though. I would absolutely love to see Fitzgerald on the Patriots I just have no idea how to get it done nor the cost-benefit analysis of such a move.

    I'd think there would be a massive revolt and Wisenhunt would be hung and quartered if they traded away their franchise.

    Don't know the board that well but get the top pass rusher left.

    Where's the "whatever irritates Deus Irae most" option? That's the trouble with polling, they try to shape opinion and are rarely intended for gathering what people really think. :(

    As I see it the Bengals (35), Cardinals (38), Redskins (41) and 49ers (45) are all in need of a QB and Andy Dalton, Ryan Mallett and possibly Colin Kaepernik are the only ones worthy of a 2nd round pick left on the board. The Raiders and Seahawks could also be in the market to move up for a QB but I'd rather us trade to get a higer 2nd rounder than a mid-late one. I could quite easily see one of those teams giving up their 2nd round pick and possibly a 1st next year (given thats what we got for 28 and 33 is only 5 spots back coupled with the desperation of those teams to make sure they grab a QB) to move up to ensure they get their guy. Although saying that I can't see the Bengals moving up unless they feel someone else will jump ahead of them and I'd expect the Cards to pursue Kolb, as per Fitzgerald's request, now that his value is sure to have fallen with so many QB needy teams drafting QBs.

    I'd asked for a autographed hoodie...after suggesting he'd get a pass rusher, who would be ready to go for game #1.

    Honestly I think it will be traded away - some think the #33 may be more valuable than #28 - which fetched a 1st rounder next year and a 2nd rounder this year.

    An offer like that is hard to pass up when you're potentially swapping #28 and #33 for a Top 10 pick in a year with a Rookie Cap making some of the best players available cheap for 4 years.

    ... especially if you're really not giving up that much should "your guys" be available later in the 2nd. Since we know that the "big names" to BB aren't the "big names" to all of us and other GMs there's a good possibility things go down like that

    Fans are lamenting the trading away of #28 but BB just set the bar very high for trades to #33

    Seems to me like everybody that wants a QB wants 33. Your scenario's silly... I'd tell BB what he always does, that is, maximize the value of the pick. Get people leaking various stories about various trade scenarios, and get people on the phones with multiple teams... sure, including the Cards and the fitzgerald bait. Try to think of a guy with a modest cape cod in 2004 and get a couple million for it, basically. You want a bidding war here.

    The best offer of course wins. Love the Fitzgerald scenario, but if you're netting a future of stored draft pick value that's fine too.

    Some fans would revolt, but I would love having another second and 3 first round picks next year which will have the rookie scale (and yes, BB will prob. trade out of the first round next year for more prizes).

    trade down for a 3rd and 4th in 2011 plus a second in 2012, a first in 2013, and third in 2019.....just pick someone who can sack the freaking quarterback on a consistent basis

    I agree with the last post. Trade down for a 3rd this year.

    Despite what everyone says about this being a weak draft, there's actually a lot of value in the second and thirds.M The players available in the late first round all had warts. But I would definitely take 6 of the next 60 picks.

    These players may all go in the next 2 rounds. The Patriots, with a trade down, could land 6 of them, and they could use their 4-7 rounders to maneuver for the guys they want:

    Da'Quan Bowers
    Justin Houston
    Akeem Ayers
    Brandon Harris
    Randall Cobb
    Ryan Williams
    Aaron Williams
    Torrey Smith
    Christian Ballard
    Brooks Reed
    Mikel Leshore
    Clint Boling
    Marcus Cannon
    Jabaal Sheard
    Allen Bailey
    Marvin Austin
    Leonard Hankerson
    Bruce Carter
    Martez Wilson
    Jarvis Jenkins
    Dontay Moch
    DeMarco Murray
    Sam Acho
    Kenrick Ellis
    Shane Vereen
    Stefen Wisniewski
    John Moffitt
    Joseph Barksdale
    Greg Romeus

    If the Patriots come out of tonight with 6, say Justin Houston, Jabaal Sheard, Mikel Leshore, Bruce Carter, Stefen Wisniewski or John Moffitt, Greg Romeus, would anyone be unhappy?

    And could anyone argue that grabbing 6 of these guys (plus an extra #1 next year) is not as good as grabbing Wilkerson and, say Bowers, if we had stayed put?

    I'd take the 6 (+ 1st rounder) over Wilkerson and Bowers (+ Carter, Wisniewski and Romeus)

    I'm just hoping that one of the potential and elite pass-rushers left are high on BB's list and he takes one so after that I can enjoy the draft and any trade he makes won't cause me fall into a catatonic state of frustration and despair.:D

    It really depends on who they like.

    Since I thought they would want a 34 end in this draft, I am tired of guessing. We let two of the better prospects at that position go to our rivals, so we obviously were not interested in those players - or at least I hope not. Belichick does not make risks like that.

    I'm not in love with anybody at 33 that we can't get later in round 2 - so I'm OK w/ trading back. I'm tired of trading into future years though.

    As I said on the other board, when you break down what we really got in exchange for the #26 pick in 2009, it's rather paltry. Now, I wouldn't have wanted Clay Matthews, but the only irreplaceable piece we got out of it was Gronk. And even him, I am sure we could have found another way to trade up and get him if we wanted.

    When you consider how replaceable Butler, Brace and Tate have been to this point - and how we essentially got Gronk for a 2009 3rd round pick, you wonder why a 1st round pick ever needed to be involved in the trade in the first place.

    If we are going to trade out and back, we have to stop missing on the second rounders. Belichick has only truly missed on one first rounder in his time here, but the 2nd and 3rd rounds have not been so lucrative. So I do question the trade we made with the Saints last nite. There's a 50-50 chance that the guy we get with #56 does not contribute much in terms of value over replacement, in which case all we did was trade away one year of service of whoever we could've had at 28.

    If they didn't love anybody at 28, fine. But I just want us to stay aggressive.

    #12 Jersey

    I have never been more certain that a pick would get traded than this one. All those who want either Dalton or Mallet are dialing up BB nonstop today.

    propose a trade with SF since they have multiple picks on day 3.
