.. you think he'll take Malcolm Kelly off our hands though? wishful thinking?



The Pats just paid Tom Brady a ton of money and they need more than just Welker, they need a upgrade at WR and RB on a team that hasn't won a playoff game since 07 or 08. With 6 picks in the first 3 rounds BB as the firepower to get into the top ten if he wants to. If th draft is held before free agency starts, a lot of teams will do things different.


Never say never


While I agree with all of your points I still say the Pats wouldn't make that move, but I will admit that it is possible. I would rate the possibility at much less than 5%.

BTW - Did anyone notice how difficult it is to find a partner to trade down with?

It was rather skillfully played by Allen, wasn't it? I was very pleased to have been proven wrong on this occasion...

However, you still have to find one...
