Patriots trade pick

Postby Dazedncnfz » Fri Apr 25, 2003 2:35 pm

The Patriots dealt a draft pick Friday afternoon, but not one of its first rounders as has been speculated. This one involved the Patriots sending their second of two third round picks in this year's draft (No. 78 overall) to the Miami Dolphins for a second round pick in 2004.

The 78th pick was obtained from New Orleans in the Tebucky Jones deal, which means the Patriots essentially acquired a seventh rounder this year and second and fourth round picks in 2004 for Jones.

I think it was DD (could be wrong) that said the Pats would trade away one of their picks because its some kind of historical trait of theirs. They refuse to have two first round picks.

Have to look around the boards again to find that .

Okay. Not sure about this one, but it seems like they don't have many holes to fill this year, and maybe they think they will have more next year, plus they move up a round, though that may not be much if Miami makes it to the SB.

Homeless,
After this deal, they still have two first rounders, because they only traded away a third rounder.

Yes, Homeless, I was the one who said that they won't draft two first rounders. Even with this deal, I believe that they will either trade their two picks to rise up, or will make a future trade for one of them ... basically like they did with the lower pick. That seems a smart move since this year's draft is considered very thin on talent. The Pats are too good to be worse than mediocre, so the only way they're going to get high draft positions is by trading other picks or players for them.

I think that the Pats still use most of the scouting and drafting wisdom passed along by Dick Steinberg, one of the best talent evaluators in NFL history. Steinberg preferred top of the draft and bottom of the draft picks ... kind of a skim the cream and then outguess the gamblers strategy. He made some mistakes (notably Kenneth Simms and "Champagne Tony Eason") in his career but he is credited with building two Superbowl teams through his talent scouting.

I will be truly surprised if the Pats draft two first rounders.

Nice forecast there, DD! ;-D

It didn't happen in any way we expected, but you were absolutely correct. Now, of course, they'll have to deal one of there '04 first-rounders... :-D

Pats Don't Let Us Down

5, New England traded its first-round (No. 19) choice to Baltimore for the Ravens second-round (No. 41) and 2004 first-round choice. Baltimore selected Kyle Boller, qb, California. New England traded the second-round (No. 41) choice to Houston.

I KNEW they wouldn't keep two first round picks. Just like Cinci has to screw up promising 1st round QBs, the Pats can't draft two 1st round players ;-D
