I NEVER tire of listening to their lamentations!!
What's far more important is that you get to keep far more 2nd round picks than you can keep 1st round picks, because of their salary value.
Until a rookie cap is 100% in place, the top of the 2nd round is the sweet spot in any NFL draft.
Saints got Heyward and Ingram. Nice 1st round for them
Give Belichick some time. Besides NO's 1st is close to the 2nd
read it again, he says their "second first rounder"
The pick trading keeps us competitive year after year. It's not sexy but at least we don't go all in like Atlanta did tonight.
Uh, guys, the reason bowers is falling is because he's got a bum knee. He's no good...no go...no go...repeat no go, over. Raven leader to foxtrot, over...over... microfracture means end of career.
A rookie cap is really only going hurt the first 10 picks. A late 1st rd pick is not going to demand a lot of money.
Passing on Heyward and Wilkerson at 28?
It isnt? We didn't just add a LT at #17 who is going to play for this team?
Again? Were we not better after day 1 last year? I mean, I'm sure you said that, but its way past time to admit you were wrong.
If bowers is out, who's best pass rusher?
Can I get you a KLEENEX??
Your impotent squealing amuses me.
The Jets have already peaked.
And the Patriots are clearly rapidly ascending to new Heights.
But you keep on squealing and bleating while we roll up multiple Championships...and then you can try to tell us that you never threw us under the bus!!
Change SUBJECTS much??
I made NO predictions!!
What's your POINT, my whining, squealing, BLEATING friend??
With this amount of time leading up to our pick. How can we not trade it? Should be an interesting second round. If we can squeeze another future first and keep two second rounders. That would be ok with me.
I'll take both of Pittburgh's DEs, Sheard & Romeus.
Yes but when you have multiple first rounders you can package them to move up. I really think that the Patriots will change their strategy once that cap is in place. Plus in a time of change BB has always been able to take advantage of many of his less skilled competitors.
You sir, are a moron. Someone questions why our team trades out of a prime slot of the draft, something they do every single year, and this is the best you can do ? I listed some major concerns, and you decide to drink the koolaid instead. The last time the Pats actually took both first round picks was in 2004 (Wilfork and Watson), and they won the SB that year. We've had two #1 picks several times in the last 7 years since, and have passed on several players that would have helped us.
They already have lost out on a chance for Heyward, Wilkerson and Ingram. By giving up that chance, they now pretty much have to pick a D-lineman with Pick 33, when they could have picked Heyward or Wilkerson at 28, and adressed another need with a Torrey Smith at 33, or a second defensive player at 33. Heyward and Bowers or Heyward and Brooks Reed sure sounds better than just one defensive lineman and a #1 pick next year (that most likely will be traded). It may be good ASSET management, but you can't build a team with assets, you have to build it with actual players. No way they draft all 3 picks in tomorrows second round.
I think the Pats will trade down from #33 again. One of the teams that missed out on a QB in the 1st round will want to get after Dalton or Kaepernick.
Hopefully, after the tradedown, the guy the Pats take at #40ish is the guy they wanted all along at 28/33. It's pretty hard to turn down a 2nd and 1st round pick for #28. That's some good value there.
Well the Bills and Bengals follow the Pats pick, both of them need a QB, so if you want one, you have to call BB.
That's the night for me guys, see y'all tomorrow.
guys, a DL was not that much of need for the pats......they have decent bodies in that unit.
they need an OLB much more, and a difference maker was not available when they drafted.
I like brooks reed if the pats decide to use #33...... he's got the ability and an attitude that will allow him to be coached up. I think he's a perfect fit with the rest of the unit (cunningham, mayo, spikes, guyton, fletcher)...he may be a 1 trick pony coming out of college, but I think he will wind being more whilst his 1 trick is a trick the pats sorely need.
Maybe the 2 #1's in 2012 will be packaged to pick the #1 QB in the draft....
