It’s getting closer and closer to when the Patriots will pick. There is quite a discussion on what this organization is going to do, but truly nobody ever knows what Bill Belichick is going to do as he’s unpredictable.  It hasn’t been too crazy tonight as nobody as truly reached on any player yet. But, there has been quite a few drops and not a lot of Receivers have been taken yet. This is great news for Patriots Nation, if they end up going that route instead of addressing the need in the secondary or defensive line.

Should the Patriots trade out? At this point, they shouldn’t. There is still a lot of talented players left that can make a big impact right away and regardless of the shortage of picks they need to make moves soon. They have to address the wide receiver need sooner rather than later. They can still try and trade Ryan Mallett as teams are very interested in him, but they may not be willing to trade him. If they choose to go that route, they can get probably a 2nd round pick and address another one of their needs.

It’ll be interesting to see what route they end up going because the time is ticking to make a decision. What will they do? Well, the time for waiting is about to be over for the 1st round. I believe they should draft Robert Woods or Keenan Allen if they are available.

Please feel free to let us know on what you think they should do !
