    Most, if not all, of those picks will be at the end of the 7th round. So yes, you will have four additional picks but they are pretty much from what would otherwise be the rookie free agent pool. Nothing to sneeze at, no substitute for smart shopping from the free agent veteran pool.

    That's where we found Edelman. He was a comp pick.

    It might allow us to package some picks together to move around a bit in the draft.

    I don't see us needing another 12 players in the team.

    Good point, Edelman was a comp pick--as was Tom Brady.

    Hopefully you're correct, and we find some great future talent. I don't see us needing 12 more players either.

    Not with our coach and his economist's heart. Usually, you do one round better when you trade a pick a year into the future. The problem with that trade, this year, is that a current 5th round pick might actually be more talented than a 4th next. This is a crazy talented year. I see him moving up and down in this draft instead moving picks into the future.

    So that makes Brady, Edelman, and Cassel as late round comp picks--that's insane!

    Cassel wasn't a comp pick, but he was a 7th rounder. :)

    Here's another comp pick, though:

    Some one mentioned trading picks around this year, and I don't disagree, but aren't comp picks untradable? I can't remember is this is true, or was true but isn't true anymore? Having untradable comp picks still allows you to trade your other, tradable picks with fewer reservations, but does anyone know this?

    Comp picks (still) cannot be traded, but the Pats already have two 7s.

    lets turn at 7th rounder in 2010 into a 2016 1st round pick. trade this years into the 6th next year, that into a fifth the year after, etc. etc.

    If this draft is very deep then there should still be some potential in the 7th round.

    Oh, my bad. I thought that's why you posted Cassel's pic.

    David Givens was my absolute favorite, just loved the guy. Good possession receiver.

    It's one of the deepest ever, with many underclassmen declaring because of the threat of a rookie cap next season.

    This is why I feel the Pats are putting far more work into scouting than FA.

    Are we really counting on 7th round picks as a big boost? lol

    A 7th round pick is a free agent without a possible bidding war.

    Guyton, Woods and others prove you just sign the guy if you forgot to pick him in 7.

    I'd much rather lose some comp picks because we picked up a valuable cheap vet.

    Actually, there are no more underclassmen declaring this year than in any other year. The agents tried (via the media) to scare more underclassmen into the draft, but the NFL Draft Projection committee was up to the task in terms of telling juniors where they were likely to be drafted.

    if it's so deep maybe we can trade a 4 this year for a 2 next.

    If there was ever a year for BB to trade around in the draft to get the guys he wants this year, this is it. Pats' strategy of always seeking value over the long haul should be changed, potential rookie cap be damned. Worry about next year when it gets here. There may not even be a season next year.

    If he trades picks into next year then either
    1) the trade offer we get makes it a total no-brainer. 2) the Pats just aren't feeling as much urgency to win now as they should be.

    IMO the "player needs to fit the Pat's prototype at any given position" gets thrown out the window this year and the Pats' grading system undergoes some serious adjustments. They will tolerate more risk this draft.

    Its time to hit on 3 - 4 players that will be cornerstones of the team looking towards the future.

    1.CB
    2 WR
    3 OLB
    4 TE

    Yes, I know.

    I mean the other 7th/6th rounders we have from trades (and our own picks)

    Could be thrown in if we want to move up/down slots. Maybe a way of getting an extra 2011 pick. Or a throw-in in a trade for players.

    Given the success the Pats have had with UDFAs, getting the jump on the rest of the league via untradeable, end-of-draft picks might be fine. As we know, Bodden was a UDFA, Mike Wright, Pierre Woods, Patten. They may actually be more likely to make the team than the three second rounders...Oh wait, that's NOT good news.

    The draft is very deep yeah, but too say there will still be talent in the 7th round, thats crazy man. No draft is that deep, once you get past the 4th round your really just taking flyers

    Don't forget BB and his undrafted finds as well in the last couple of years.

    2008- Gary Guyton: Starting ILB
    Ben Jarvus Green-Ellis: A depth back/ST player who could see more action.

    2009: Brian Hoyer: The Brady back-up his rookie year. BB must see some real talent.
