At #22 we take OG Levi Brown
#23 we take OLB Woodley, or maybe Willis
2nd round RB Michael Bush if available, if not then RB Tony Hunt
3rd round LB
4th round WR
4th round compensatory OL, probably Center
5th round TE backup
6th round ?
7th round CB
Out of interest, who do you think that New England is willing to give up both of their 1st round picks for?
Also, according to accepted draft pick value charts - round 1 #15 is worth 1050 points, whereas round 1 #22 (780points) + round 1 #26 (700) = 1480 points - therefore an unlikely scenario.
Pick 32 might work out mathematically though
They've been great for a while now, three Super Bowls' worth of great. But only this season have the New England Patriots become The Show, the must-see team of stars, pretty boys and reformed bad boys. Suddenly, the Patriots are not simply great; they're compelling, fascinating, appearing to be almighty and a touch lawless.
The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.
