Rumor Mill, Pats looking to trade up.

    Re: Rumor Mill, Pats looking to trade up.

    There are too many question marks with all the early picks.  Character, health, strength, one season wonders.  I would prefer the Patriots stay at 17.  Get JJ Watt or someone for help on the defensive line.  The need to rebuild the offensive line.  Moving up will cost dearly both in picks and salary cap.  It is better to use the draft as a starting point and keep money available for when free agency starts.   If all their money is tied up in an early pick, they will not be able to sign any free agents including their own.

    I can see this happening this year for sure.  I'm thinking if Robert Quinn is there at 9 - (Dallas) this is where it could get quite interesting.

    Dallas need a OT and they can slide down and pick one up at 17.  Look for the Pats to go get IMPACT this year. (They need it)

    I can see the Pats move up for Robert Quinn.  at pick 9,10 or 11.....IF he is there of course.

    But then again, EVERYTHING makes sense now, we'll chat again on Friday and check how wrong we all were! HA

    Go Pats!

                    I just hold that much in the draft or the combine,over the yrs  seen so many 1st rounders bust and seen others  like brady and others play at the top of thier games and become big name players.Maybe it has to do with proven people wrong or some first rounders get that big signing bounous and have that feeling og entitlement that they can do what ever and get a pay check.

    I want JJ Watts but he can be had at 17

    JJ watt scares me.  Now I am guessing, but sounds like a steriod guy to me.  I know kids put on weight in college but I have a feeling its the roids.  Was loving him, but now I'm on the cam jordan bandwagon.  lets get a DE and OL trade a pick and grap a LB

    I have said it before and I will say it again, I don't see Cameron Jordan being a good fit for the Pats system, to small for 34 end and to slow for 34 OLB.  Quinn, Von Miller and Kerrigan are the only guys I can see coming in before 17 or so that are DE's in college and will tranfer to solid OLB's in the NFL.  Jordan will have some trouble I think.

    I like Both....Jordan  more speed...and i think hes strong enough...just not fat and slow like the pats have....  WATT  big time effort...either would make the team better....

    In Response to Re: Rumor Mill, Pats looking to trade up.:
    I love all these possibilities dealing with getting the next Willie McGinnest, down DE and OL w/ coverage skills, which would solve all the D problems. " Good coverage = sacks,   Great rush = picks" I can only say that these guys are few and far between. Thank goodness the Tuna saw him #3?. BB is from that tree so if we trade up .. that could be the guy!Is that guy available at 10?   who were those guys since... Demarcus Ware (Parcels' draft) and Merriman( FA?) ?

    The Tuna took Willie McGinnest at #4 not #3. Also a little trivia for you...In the last game of the 1993 season the Pats came from behind to upset the Miami Dolphins. Had they not won that game the Pats would have had the #2 pick in the draft and would have drafted Marshal Faulk, someone that Tuna wanted desperately to pair with a young Drew Bledsoe. But Bledsoe was to good to soon by beating those Dolphins, and we ended up picking Willie Mac at #4. Also interestingly, not one other Pats draft pick that year was worth a darn except Willie Mac!

    I kind of depends on who's writing the article. I readsomething on ESPN Insider with the same scenario with Greg Bedard from the Boston Globe talking about them moving up for Robert Quinn. My guess would be Prince Amukamara the CB from Nebraska as the target, assuming he's available.

    Would they really need to move up to #10 to get prince? If him, jordan, quinn and tyson smith were available at #10, who would you take?

    Re: Rumor Mill, Pats looking to trade up.

    Why would the Pat's want more picks and why trade for picks next year when there may not even be a draft?  They have 75 players now on their roster and 3 more on military reserve who may be in camp this year plus 9 current draft picks . . . that's 87 without FA's which means over 30 getting cut.  I say trade some picks to move up and get some STUDS.  The future is now as Brady will not be here forever . . . we need the SUPER Bowl this year!!!!

    Re: Rumor Mill, Pats looking to trade up.

    Pats need a good passrusher.  Think about how sic their defense willl be if they get an elite DE, think about how much better that makes their secondary when they can rush the QB.  It would nice to have another elite CB to develop along side Mcourty, but thats a secondary need (no pun intended) after a good pass rusher I'd say we need to strengthen the OL.

    Re: Rumor Mill, Pats looking to trade up.

    has this supposed rumor about the pats trading up been substantiated anywhere? i know these last few days are all rumors and smokescreens...but where did this come from multiple/reliable sources? because i have a very hard time believing BB trades up in a draft where there are little or no true "risk free" superstars. personally i would love to see a trade up to 10 for quinn...but is it worth a risk on a guy who has very little game tape and a brain tumor? doesnt seem like a BB type risk.

    Ok that does make sense but people are going to fumble at the mouth sometimes and say something that might not be correct but you get what they mean. Quag was clearly just having a good memory about how we came to draft WIllie Mac he was not saying "All praise Bill Parcells" lol that was my only point. He was not the GM and dint make any draft choice on his own while he was the coach here but people are not going to follow up their statements with that disclaimer lol But again I see your point. As I consistently need to remind people that ESPN is a F*CKING JOKE.

    Killa- thanks for having my back! You right I was just reminscing about that Fins /Pats game. I remember watching it with my dad (RIP) and we were torn! Pulling for the Pats of course, but wanting them to lose cause we had the draft picks all figured out hahahahah

    I think the Pats will be targeting OLB Quinn or DE Fairly.  That would be sick!
