    Wouldn't be surprised if we trade up either. It all depends on who is on the board.

    We have a lot of draft picks. IMO we burn an extra draft pick to grab Hoch, Fant or Smith.

    My money is on no. I think they want an athletic playmaker at DL/DT, the safety position and TE ready to go Year 1.

    12 picks in 2019...sounds more like a trade up than a trade down year

    We have what 12 picks? I’m only expecting around 8 or so players drafted so expect wheeling and dealing up and down the draft board to get a particular player and acquiring future picks in 2020.

    Figuring out Coach Bill Bellichick's draft strategy is almost impossible

    I am supremely confident that we will either A) Trade out of the first round, B) Trade up in the first round, or C) Make a pick at 32. Go ahead and quote me on that.

    I'd like to see that if they identify an early impact player.

    Ideally, I think we draft 8 - 10 players, and the rest of the picks are either traded for cheap veteran acquisitions or into the future so we can load up draft capital in 2020 for a move for a QB.

    If Daniel Jones is available at 32, I can see our drafting down, because we may get some good offers from pro-Jones teams.

    In any case, we rarely trade up.

    I've been wanting us to trade out for a 2nd 2020 1st forever now.

    That said it takes 2 to make a deal & who knows, who's on the board.

    We have so much flexibility though. 2 2nd's & 3 3rd's, we can easily move up into the high 30's/40's if someone we like falls out of Rd1.

    I am all for Trading up and targeting specific guys. If they come away with Two starters I call it a successful Draft.

    I think it's 80% certain we trade out. It's Belichick's normal procedure. He will trade for a 2nd round pick this year, and maybe a 2nd in 2020.
