    From what ive read on here its not a very deep draft, so Maybe this year BB moves up. The team has had a boat load of picks over the last two years that seem to have turned out pretty good.

    I think this is the year. I'm hopeful the Oakland pick will be sufficiently high that a trade-up isn't necessary. I'm less optimistic about the Carolina pick since they have a lot of winnable games and Clausen just needs time to get his feet wet. So I'm looking at #5, #32, #42 and #64 (3040 value points).

    The sweet spots in this draft (obviously subject to change) look to be:
    #5 - Handful of truly elite players in this class
    #15 - Top DE and/or WR still on the board
    #40 - Top interior OL and 2nd tier OLB/OT/RB
    #50 - Best opportunity for "sliders"...talent drop-off soon after

    Those picks represent 3650 value points, for a difference of about 600. Combining the Pats 3rd and 4th round picks would get approximately 400 value points. Not quite enough to get into optimal position based on my numerous assumptions, but certainly good enough to do some moving in the early rounds.

    To put names to these spots, here what that haul could look like:
    #5 - Robert Quinn OLB
    #15 - Allen Bailey DE
    #40 - Stefen Wisniewski C/G
    #50 - Daniel Thomas RB

    Put in your favorite names/positions instead, but it takes work to NOT get some serious talent picking at those spots. Staying put may leave the Pats on the outside looking in on some position runs.

    What have you heard about the strength of this years draft and the sweet spots of each round? Do I sense a trade to next year coming?

    Already did that to get the Carolina 2nd, but I expect movement into 2012 - it's pretty much standard operating procedure now.

    EDIT: Whoops! As for draft strength, BB has positioned NE to be a key player in each day's opening round, and to take advantage of the top talent projected to be there early.

    My guess for the first 4 picks:

    1 - DL/DE

    2 - LT

    3 - OLB

    4 - RB
