Big Trade-Down Scenario
Anybody notice that the Patriots have TWELVE traft picks? And the Eagles have 11? There is no way that they can bring that many players into camp, so they're definitely looking to trade up.
Think of this scenario: We send the 13, 17, and 79 to NE for the 22, 44, 47, and 53. Its even in the draft value calculator and close in the draft value chart (the 3rd may become a 4th).
With this trade, we would have FIVE picks between 22 and 53...no 3rd rounder. Look who we'd be able to draft. We could also take Kyle Wilson at 22 and take an OT in the 2nd. Maybe Anthony Davis falls to 22...
22. OG/OT Mike Iupati
44. RB Jahvid Best
47. DE/OLB Jerry Hughes
49. CB Kareem Jackson
53. FS NAte Allen
