2010 DRAFT PICK RECAP: The Patriots traded an undisclosed 2010 draft pick to the Buccaneers for tight end Alex Smith, and with that move in mind, here is a look at what picks the Patriots own in next year’s draft:
BUCCANEERS PERSPECTIVE ON TRADE: The Tampa Tribune notes that the Buccaneers are looking to re-acquire draft picks they traded away for Kellen Winslow and to move up to select quarterback Josh Freeman. … The St. Petersburg Times notes that “the Bucs attempted to trade Smith before the last weekend’s draft but apparently had to settle for what’s believed to be a second-day pick in 2010.”
