    No way we use all our Draft Picks this year!

    All these FA signing with more to come. Plus BB always finds a jem or 2 in unsigned FA's.

    So BB is going to do on draft day what he always does, wheel and deal. He’s bringing in all these FA to add depth to the roster and to leave CAP space to sign Welker. No way he uses all his picks and will trade down or out to gain later round picks and future picks. This is me being Captain Obvious but this is what Bill does.

     

    One first rounder not 2 and one second rounder not 2.

    What value we get in return for trading these picks remains to be seen.

    May still pick twice in second round, but no one should have ever seriously considered BB would pick twice in the first.  He's wheeled and dealed for years now in the draft, and you can expect the same this year as well.

    Re: No way we use all our Draft Picks this year!

    For a team on top of the game, the fifth, sixth and seventh round picks are nearly worthless.  These players are only going to get bumped in August, and then one of the other 31 teams is sure to swoop them up. 

    BB has already traded away all of his fifth, sixth and seventh rounders for this April.

    In addition, the Patriots are always willing to trade away a second rounder this year for a first rounder next year, or a third this year for a second next year. 

    Many Patriot free agent signings are low risk.  If Pierre Garcon can't run in August because of his ACL, he'll simply be cut.  If he can run, there's a spot for him at WR.

    I have seen years where 12 out of 12 draft picks (over seven rounds) were still on hand at training camp 16 months later, so maybe BB will in fact use all of his draft picks.

    We shouldn't use all of our picks! ^And Paul I think you mean Gonzalez not Garcon!

    BB will definitely trade one of the first round picks. There will always be someone willing to overpay for the likes of Mark Ingram (haven't read many Pats fans pining for him lately). He'll trade one of the picks for a one next year and a two this year. Mark it down.
