That's too much to give up, to get the guys you mentioned, above. But, I do like your idea of going for it...NOW. This draft is deep in talent. I'd like to see the Pats look into acquiring players within the following groups:
1.) RBs: Robert Turbin, and/or Chris Polk;
2.) WRs: Joe Adams, Brian Quick;
3.) DTs: Brandon Thompson, Derek Wolfe;
4.) DBs: Brandon Boykin, Brandon Taylor, Trumaine Johnson;
5.) OL: OT/OG Mitchell Schwartz: Would feel more comfortable f the Pats added a versatile offensive lineman, to replace Matt Light, and back up OGs Mankins and Waters. Remember, protecting Tom Brady is always Job One.
Why the RBs? I'm not confortable with Stevan Ridley as the teams' #1 RB. Turbin and Polk seem to fit best what the Pats' do;
Why WRs? Joe Adams would back up Welker in the slot, and is an outstanding kick returner. Quick is a potential field-stretching deep threat;
Brandon Thompson is perhaps my favorite player in this draft. I see him as the second coming of Vince Wilfolk. Wolfe has pass-rush potential, and can play inside as a 4-3 DT, or as a 3-4 DE;
Boykin would be an excellent nickel CB, and, like Adams, is an outstanding kick returner. Johnson has excellent size for a CB, and might be able to transition to FS. Taylor was a team captain at LSU...and should be a steady, if unspectacular, addition at safety.
