    Extra 3rd rounder from Oakland, extra first rounder from SF. Next year is going to be a MUCH deeper draft. Next year I expect the same jokers to be crying we are doing to much!

    Eh, but Don Banks is saying that this sure looks like BB going for one more run and he's out of here.

    Did you guys LOSE any FA's? Those picks will be nice. Likewise, Colts will have 4 additional comps picks with their FA losses. If Ugoh works out, I guess you have to like the pick. Tarik perhaps will either stay and play for less, or this guy maybe steps in, providing some cap relief to get guys like Free, Sanders or Clark done.

    then why wouldn't he have used the extra 1st rounder this year?

    And there is a good possibility that those picks could be at the beginning to mid round pick which is much better being at the end of the round. It will also gives us the ability to move up in the 1st round if the is a great ILB coming out.

    You know, I hear that every year, especially in the years where the Patriots have just traded for an extra first rounder. I'm going to stop believing it soon...

    Having two picks from two other teams also makes next season's games more interesting to watch. We not only cheer for a Patriots victory, but also follow the SF and Oakland games, hoping for losses. (Although with the Raiders, it's a bit redundant.)

    Re: We are loaded for next years draft

    We're talking about a first round pick and a high third round pick. Even in a best case scenario, the value of Indy's compensatory picks won't come close to what the Pats just got.

    Also, don't forget that (in the biggest bone head move of the draft) Indy lost their first round pick in 2008.

    Indy has two fewer first round picks in 2008 than the Pats do. Oakland's 3rd round pick will likely be worth more than Indy's entire compensatory haul. The difference in value between what the Pats and Colts have for 2008 is equivalent to sitting out an entire draft.

    Re: We are loaded for next years draft

    Next year's draft is assumed to be stronger but the key for us is will it be better deeper at the positions of need.

    Also,something that people don't think about also is possibly tossing these extra picks towards RFA's if the right ones area available for the correct price.

    At worst, we push it off for another year.
