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.


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.


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.


I just wonder what happens if we draft with all those picks and not trade up/down at all for the rest of the draft [which is unlikely] how would this trade be viewed then?

Like i said, i like it if we move up and get a pass-rusher and WR who can contribute/start this season.

If we do not trade up, this trade makes zero sense for the 2013 season.

Hint: Football will exist beyond 2013

Patriots got two great defensive players last year in part because of their work in years like this one. The draft is not particularly impressive this year so if they traded half their picks into 2014 I would love it.

Apparently you took the Vikings trade after Denver took your No1 guy.

Shefter was talking about the Vikings and Patriots potential deal BEFORE Demvers pick even came in, so idk how true it is. I'm glad we did not take that DT, I personally didn't think he was as good as others were making him out to be.

I would have been cool with Williams. But if we can turn our board into a prospect who is just as good I don't really care, and at this stage the likelihood of that is high.

***Update***

Hear Patriots were "begging" to get out of their draft spot at the back last night. #Vikings obliged. Just not a ton of value there.

Darth BB: has zero leverage, still hoses the Vikings.

Whoever is saying that is just plain making [inappropriate/removed] up. Cause BB would never let his Big Board be leaked to the media. EVER.

New England never leaks anything. Never will in the BB era.

Not to mention BB has already put it out there how they think it is a really bad draft.

Robert Kraft isn't evaluating draftees. Where do you think he is getting his info for this quote from:

No we were discussing this deal a few picks before. GB took our guy. Datone Jones was our target.

Makes sense. Would be a perfect LDE for us.
