Shortly after the Pats 2009 Draft ~
I got curious as to to the where , what & how's of BB's wheelin' n dealin'.
So I charted the moves to help understand what he was up to .
Here it is :
PATRIOTS 2009 DRAFT TRADES :
A ) Cassel / Vrabel trade = Db Patrick Chung ( # 34 overall )
B ) Moving back twice in 1st round ( trades with Ravens # 23 & Packers # 26 ) =
Db Darius Butler( # 41 ), Wr Brandon Tate ( # 83 ) , Qb J Edelman ( # 232 ) & also resulted in aquiring 2010 Jags 2nd rounder
It also made E Hobbs expendable ( Butler pick ) Which resulted in the two aquired Eagle's picks being parlayed into :
OT Ohrnberger ( # 123 ) & LS Jake Ingram ( # 198 )
C ) Pats second 2nd rounder (acquired via 2008 Chargers trade : # 47 overall )
Was then packaged with 4th & 6th rounders to Raiders = Ron Brace ( # 40 )
D ) Pats trade their natural 3rd rounder to Titans for 2010 2nd rounder .
( currently no worse than #35 overall )
Total of 7 Draft related trades = 7 players ( plus two 2010 2nd rounders )
( 5 other players aquired via natural draft position selection / compensatory )
= 12 Overall Draft picks
Tyrone McKenzie ( # 97 ) was selected with 3rd round compensatory pick
George Bussey ( 170 ) was a 5th round comp pick
Myron Pryer ( 207 ) was a 6th round comp pick
( Comp Picks were awarded for loss of Asante Samuel / D. Stalworth )
Of the 7 officially designated picks -
The Pats used only their natural 2nd rounder ( Volmer # 58 )
and natural 7th rounder( Daryl Richards # 234 ) .
2009 DRAFT = 12 Players
( 2 DB's / 3 DT 's / 3 O-Line / 1 LB / 1 WR / 1QB / 1 LS )
Amazingly ... ALL are still Patriots
( as of 10 /31 / 09 )
FINAL 2009 PATS DRAFT SELECTIONS :
6 198 Jake Ingram, LS, Hawaii
7 232 Julian Edelman, WR, Kent
