Why the Patriots Shouldn't Trade Up
- This is the year! Bill Belichick and Scott Pioli have
been wheeling and dealing drast picks every year to
move up a round next year. Well this is the year to
cash in! This is the deepest draft in the last 10
years. The number of players receiving 1st round
grades are only about 12-15. Perhaps one will fall to
the Patriots at #21 like vince Wilfork did. The meat
and potatoes of this draft is the 2nd and 3rd rounds.
The Patriots have 2 picks in both the 3rd and 4th
rounds or 6 of the 1st 119 players.
Cash in ... use all 11 picks because this team has
some holes. They have underachieving veteran players
too (Dan Klecko and Marguise Hill come to mind). get
some young blood in here to push these vets (possibly
out the door).
I can see us dropping down in the first round too,
getting an extra pick that we can package to move up
in Round 2 or together with another pick for a second
Don't trade picks away this year ... I know BB loves
to do this, but this is the year to reap the benefits
of all these past trades ( 6th for next years 5th,
then trade the 5th for next years 4th the following
Is it Draft Day yet?
