Not sure how true that is in totality - the Patriots have a list of 15 guys, and Datone Jones was very high on their board. But I would not be opposed to NE spending a pick on Justin Hunter - he's my number one WR in this class.

Which basically means they didn't want him imo. No way they leak that with so many teams still picking ahead of them.

p.s. I would love to land Hunter, BB always disappoints me tho so I'm not getting my hopes up.

According to him, they had a short list, and he was on it.

Love the number of picks it's given us, just concerned we're now out of the Woods, Allen and Hunter market at our new spot.

I endorse the trade, despite the litany of players I like that were available at 29.

I had a small feeling we might have stayed put with Patterson on the board, but I think, considering the amount of lop-sided trades, that we really managed to fleece the Vikings.

I was sort of hoping it would be a 2nd, 4th and '14 2nd when I saw the Vikings had moved up so far, but this gives us great flexibility and of course, Robert Woods is still available. Laughing

As much as I like Woods with you, I think our chance at him is slim not picking until the 20th pick tomorrow. Woods will be gone by then. I've had a hunch leading up to this draft, and I have a strong feeling they're going after Markus Wheaton. Such a determined, well written hard working kid. He has Patriot written all over. I think they nab him and Stedman Bailey. Two receivers that really fit the mold in what we like to draft. Smaller, shifty and quick WRs.

I'm going to put my fingers in my ears and shout 'ROBERT WOODS' until even Bill Belichick can't ignore me.

I ended up not studying and watching the draft, I couldn't ignore the fact that it was on Laughing

I love, love, love this trade, I feel like we might trade down even further and milk some of the picks we have for earlier picks next year. It's always great value on this team to trade in one pick for multiple mid round picks.

I'm sure they have a grade drop off by pick value chart and while it looks like a bounty of picks it's not that impressive. The second is pretty late on.

This is how I felt. The dropoff from #29 to #52 is almost an entire round. I'm very fearful we're gonna lose out on some very good players...

It's in a decent range though I think.

We are likely to see a run on QB's (Smith, Nassib, Barkley, Glennon - maybe Wilson) CB's (Taylor, BWW, Banks, Poyer, Ryan) LBers (Te'o, Brown, Bostic, Greene, Moore, Alonso) Maybe a couple of RB's and hopefully this means one of the WR's we covet will become available at our pick, or for a small trade up.

We have some flexibility to move around now, so I'm much happier going into tonight.

Should give us something to trade back up with though. My guess is we'd be happy with Woods, Hunter or Allen and are happy to see how far each falls before making a move if needed.

http://www.nfl.com/draft/2013/tracker#dt-tabs:dt-by-grade/dt-by-team-input:atl/dt-by-round-input:1

Here a grade list of available players. I see many players that can help the Pats on this list. Don't forget there could be 5 QBs in the 2nd round, also you can count Teo and Lacy, and Eifert. The players we need will be pushed right to the Pats. Look at WR, there are many still on the board. Look at Marshall kid he is ranked 11th on this grade list.

Yes, but...if we do not trade back up, this will have been a waste. The trade is essentially

-Cordarrelle Patterson
-moving down 24 spots

In exchange for a 3rd, 4th, and 7th round pick.

....hardly seems like a grand slam at all.

The flexibility those picks provide for us to move up or down in this draft as well as into next year is a valuable commodity.
