The day is here - and no matter how I break it down I keep getting back to Ryan and McFadden as two players, who if available at #7, make it possible and probable that the Patriots will be able to find a trading partner to slide back to the teens. They are the only two players I see as coveted enough for other teams to trade up - with teams also not expecting they'll be there at 8 or long after that. Conversely, if the Patriots are going to move up I'm looking at Oakland as a potential partner - especially if its Gholston the player the Patriots want. And yes I know Oakland has never traded out of the Top 5 but with so many needs I think Oakland would be a willing partner, seeing as they could still get the player they want at #7 (McFadden). If Ryan gets taken by Atlanta, as I suspect he will, that means that if BB is hoping to trade back (and doesn't truly covet any of the remaining top names), much is riding on whether McFadden lasts to give us trade value at #7. I can't help but think that the Jets might be inclined to take McFadden bosltered by the knowledge that if he's there for us, we can get significant value and trade back. So to sum up - if Ryan goes at #3 that creates a flurry of discussions on a trade for #4 - and if that doesn't happen keep your eye on McFadden - if he's there I forsee a trade back.
