Has any background or insider information been published about how the Patriots came to have such a screwball second round? It was as if the Patriots went into panic mode but they had a whole day to prepare for round two; it does not make sense. The only thing that makes sense is that they had arranged a trade partner before the round started with the proviso that if such and such a player (Kendricks? Stephen Hill? who knows) was still there then the trade partner would trade to move up for him. Then bam! the Eagles take Kendricks (or whatever) and the Patriots go into panic mode; they don't have any late-round picks to use on Wilson (i.e. a 4'th or 5 fifth or whatever)--they have to take him now or miss out. So instead of taking someone like Peter Konz or a LB they panic and take Wilson two or three rounds too early. Then at 62 the Patriots call and call but they best offer is a lame one from Green Bay so they panic and accept the trade. It was as if Green Bay knew they were desperate. So the question becomes: will Carey Hayward be better than Bequett and Fonzie and some camp fodder. Probably not so in the long run BB did well with this trade-down.
