Patriots Trade 28th Pick to the Saints


Bill Belichick has once again worked the draft board to his advantage and come out on top. The Patriots traded their 28th overall pick to the New Orleans Saints for the Saints’ 2011 second-round pick (56th overall) AND the Saints’ 2012 FIRST round pick! That is tremendous value for the 28th selection. The Patriots’ next pick is the first of Round Two, so they are still likely to get a player they are targeting, as the pick is only 5 spots away. Stay tuned for more analysis of the Patriots’ first day of the 2011 NFL Draft.
