And that has been the problem, trading out of 13 statigically could net us another player in the mid 2nd to early 3rd where there will still be value players to be had. Each year it is like a feeding frensy at certain positions then another and so on. If we are in a position in the top 3 rounds with two 1st say 25 and 31 and now sitting on two 2nd and two thirds with multiple picks in the 5th thru 7th we will be able to manuever to whatever player we choose or set up multiple picks for next season, thats how the Patriots do each year to fill needs. Even at 44 a team wanting a player will give their 1st next year repeat the process next season and so on. The Patriots are smart and in contintion every year because of solid players using the draft to their advantage.

That's a good possibility too

Re: Argument against this?

As previously said, been there and tried that. None of them can you definitively say that it was a home run and the absolute right thing to do; in fact really the exact opposite, more of a disaster, the latest of which Ingram can't be characterized as that, but still not a home run. The more numbers we get, the better the chance to hit on a player or two. It's worked for the Patriots, Baltimore, and Seattle. And there is a compensatory picks side benefit, as well as a more cap friendly roster. FO obviously has to perform their due diligence prior to the draft.

So if anything in this draft, move down if our top 10 does not fall down to us, and pick up more picks, maybe even an extra second or third round pick.

If by some miracle we could move up for Williams without giving up a draft pick; say, by moving Cam Jordan; I'd be game for moving up. Cam is a good player, but he either isn't giving us the production he could, or he's not the best scheme fit imo.

How many times under SP have we moved up for a player in the first round?

In reverse order:
SP
Brandin Cooks - Promising but jury is still out
Mark Ingram - Did not get value, but not a bust
Sedrick Ellis - Total Bust
Hazbeen
Jammal Brown - Did not get value
Jonathan Sullivan - Total Bust
Charles Grant - Did not get value
Mike Ditka
Ricky Williams - Did not get value
Chris Naole - Did not get value

Plenty of head scratchers in that list...

How many times have we traded players under Payton ? Maybe he finally can see that the route they have taken and the outcome could have been avoided. Take Cooks for example(I like the guy but a 1st and 3rd) when we could have traded down and picked up Matthews and had another pick. Graham for Unger and the 31st were kind of out of character for Payton. 7-9 I feel lit a fire under Paytons butt what is better than that opened his eyes.

Re: Argument against this?

IIRC Brees and Cooks were the only two players that were NOT on the trading block when free agency started

Re: Argument against this?

Looking back, Ditkas was insane or just cashing a paycheck or both. WTH trading up for Naole, the Williams deal I can at least rationalize in my head but this deal makes no sense what so ever
