The Pats just picked up a back-up offensive guard for a conditional low round draft pick. We are entering a period where good teams, at least, have more NFL competent players in camp than they have roster spots on the active squad or a clear path to the practice squad. The Patriots have a history of making a couple of minor trades of veteran players for conditional draft picks. Last year, the Pats sent OG Hochstein out for a 7th rounder, DL Smith for a 5th, and took a flier on a TE from the Giants for a conditional 7th rounder. The Pats also sent TE Thomas to the Saints for what turned into a 2011 6th rounder. Who are the players that are currently in the Patriots' camp that are on the bubble to make the Patriots' roster but are NFL competent players that other teams may believe fill a definite need and would prefer not to risk losing a waiver's claim? James Sanders (Safety) One of the five running backs who was on the Game 1 2009 roster The 6th cornerback (Wheatley, Wilhite or Arrington?) Anyone else you think other teams would be willing to risk a conditional 6th or 7th rounder instead of looking at the waiver wire with fingers crossed?
