A few links to pass along this morning:
1) The Patriots were juggling four trades for either the 23rd or 26th overall pick. Teams mentioned were New Orleans, Pittsburgh, Green Bay and Baltimore.
2) Belichick is heard on the phone asking one of the interested teams who they are picking. When it appears that team is stalling a bit, Belichick puts his foot down to accelerate the process.
3) Ernie Adams, the team's football research director, was in charge of writing the trade proposals on the board.
4) President Jonathan Kraft was holding a trade value chart, indicating that the Patriots still use a Jimmy Johnson-like chart with point values for each pick to assess values when considering trades.
5) Belichick calling the Raiders and referring to owner Al Davis as "Mr. Davis."
6) Jonathan Kraft referencing "a lot of guys with good value on those slots relative to what we're giving up" -- in the trade with Green Bay for the 26th overall pick -- which reflected the team's overall approach in this draft.
