No value in the 32 pick in one of the deepest drafts in history?

We didn't get Butler because he is a FA next year. A system QB the Pats didn't want to pay. And according to reports wants north of 14ml next year

My guess is that New England didn't want to give up butler?

How can anyone say we have no chance to get anything of value with an extra 1st round pick and an extra 3rd round pick. Thats just dumb.

My post went way over your head. Re-read, re-think.

I could see a 2 or 3rd doing the deal on draft day. They need to speak to Butlers agent first and see what he is after.

Id give them their 3rd back but not the 2nd

It's only a good trade if we don't blow these 1st Rd picks. I will say that on the surface New England got the better deal. They got a proven playmaker and all we got was potential. Cooks was worth more than the 32nd pick.

Re: Brandin Cooks Officially Traded to Patriots

Could it be possible there is going to be more to this trade? Butler has yet to sign his tenured contract. He can't be traded till he signs. Maybe there is a condition that cannot be announced that Butler is part of the deal once he signs. Otherwise this was a steal for the Pats in my opinion.

Re: Brandin Cooks Officially Traded to Patriots

ok the 18th nor the 14th pick were never really offered straight up. Extra baggage had to be attacked.

Saints get 32
swap a 4th (118) for a 3rd (103)
Trade value suggests there maybe more to the cooks trade than just picks. Rumors may carry more weight than we all thought. Oh well

Now Tenn and Phili are still in the market for CB and WR so deals on draft day are still possible. Cle has the same needs.

#11 O.J. Howard TE Alabama 6055 251 4.51 #88 Sr

# 32 Is another solid trade pick. If the browns and the niners pass on QB this is a prime spot to be sitting. Never know what other player drops into your laps.

Min has two thirds and questions at QB? 2nd (48) and 3rd (79) gets them right in the game to pull a trade. Additional comp would be heavy

#32 Christian McCaffrey RB/WR/KR Stanford 5115 205 4.48 Jr

yep I can not leave well enough alone.

Honestly they may be trying to get in a better spot to get?
