    2 teams, both getting what they want is a good deal.

     




    Right, but at the cost of 4 draft picks, where you have 3 straight rounds with no picks?

     

    If this was a thin WR draft and Minny was right on the cusp of a SB appearance, then yeah, that would make more sense.

    Patterson has a few red flags, so it's not like he's head and shoulders above the many others who don't have those red flags.

     

     




    Idk if anyone mentioned it but the Vikes have 5 picks left. A 4th, 5th, 6th, and two 7th rounders

     



    Darn - and I thought we had milked them dry. How could BB leave all those picks on the table.

    The Patriots have a tremendous scouting organization.  They make badly unexpected picks like Logan Mankins in the first round, but their picks regularly stack up better than the NFL average.  Given this natural advantage, a trade of one first rounder for four later-round picks is an important win for the Patriots and maybe a break-even for the Minnesota Vikings.  We wish them luck in the NFC with their (my opinion) league-average pick which fits their needs precisely.

    Actually this is a misconception. In the first they do better then any other team and in the 7th and UDFA they do better but in the 2-6th they are just average. It just doesn't appear that way because we take so many picks we see more hits but % wise we are just average
