Here is a look at Seattle's schedule. It's pretty weak if you ask me: Sep 10 @Detroit Won 9-6 Sep 17 Arizona Won 21-10 Sep 24 N.Y. Giants L Oct 1 @Chicago L Oct 15 @St. Louis Oct 22 Minnesota L Oct 29 @Kansas City Nov 6 Oakland Nov 12 St. Louis Nov 19 @San Francisco Nov 27 Green Bay Dec 3 @Denver L Dec 10 @Arizona Dec 14 San Francisco Dec 24 San Diego L Dec 31 @Tampa Bay Barring injuries, I think the worst you could expect them to do is 11-5. Seattle is a shoe-in to win the division and is likely to get a first round bye. Teams that could potentially beat them in the playoffs IMO: NY Giants Dallas Chicago Minnesota Carolina Atlanta I see Seattle's round 1 pick as somewhere in the 25 to 31 range. Based on the draft value chart: http://insider.espn.go.com/nfl/draf...com/nfl/draft06/insider/news/story?id=2410670 Trading up the two number 1s (assuming the Pats pick No. 32 of course), will put us in range to get between No. 13 and No. 10. Using the 3rd round compensatory picks we could get as high as say No. 7. I'm not saying the Pats will do this, but, the extra 1st rounder has given the Pats a world of opportunities for the 2007 Draft. Right now the Pats are considered to be a franchise in decline according to most National media. In April, though, they will be the envy of every team in the league.
