PatriotsInsider Confirmed #Patriots interest in WR Dez Bryant was legit, & he was in New England for a visit. With 3 2nd Rnd picks, trade up possible?

who do you think they would trade with if they were to trade up?

Denver, probably. Considering we might draft Dez.

Denver or Jacksonville. Who knows those ****ers always pull of the most incredible trades.

They are an aging team and need draft picks. I think it would be a wonderful move (from the Phins standpoint) in the long run for them to give up all those picks for one player.
As good as Bryant is, he is not as good as Moss was coming out of college. Not even close, as Moss was taller and much faster.

trading up to denver makes a lot of sense...

I heard denver needs a center, big time... they would get one at the patriots' pick



and when you look at those 3 2nd rounders, you know they have the ammunition ...

yikes !

I seriously doubt they would move from their spot in the 20's all the way up to 11.

If they want to though for a guy with red flags....I hope it blows up in their face! :lol2::d-day::chuckle:

Patriots trading up to draft right before us?

Between that and JT going to the Jets, Dolphins fans would go nuts.

I just hope we have some aces up our sleeve, because lately it seems like our AFC East foes hold all the cards.

anything is posible at this point....if they want to move up in front of us they do have the extra picks to trade up......I like Bryant and want us to pick him but at the same time there is risk with him......can't wait for draft day tho.

Ozzy rules!!

They just might trade with Oakland. Oakland wants to trade down, and they would probably get back their first rounder next year if they traded again with the Pats.

They've got more than enough ammo to do it with 3 second rounders and a 1st. I could definitely see them trading 2 of they're seconds and they're first to Denver. I don't think they would go through all of that for Dez though. The Panzies love 2nd rounders.

the last time they got a WR who had as many red flags as bryant, so to speak, was named randy moss...

Remember they have 2 1st's next year also.

:(

Patriots will be a perpetually good team because they know the importance of trading away their late 1st rounders and 2nd rounders to crummy teams for THEIR picks NEXT year.

They know teams like the Raiders aren't getting good any time soon.

Hopefully we can do some of the same.

They need a pass rusher more than a receiver. Tully Banta-Cain is nobody's idea of a dominant edge rusher. I mean, the guy is regularly handled by running backs! So... they might be interested in Graham. Though, you know, if I were them, I would just sit tight and pick Hughes.

New England has had a few mediocre/bad drafts in a row. I agree with the poster who says they need help all over the roster. Could definitely see them grabbing Alualu in the 2nd.

RELAX! They just wanted to get a first hand look at what they'll be facing for the next 10 years. THAT'S the real reason they brought him in for a visit. As funny as I'm trying to be this might actually be true. Now might be the only chance for them to have a 1-on-1 interview to break down his game, strengths, weaknesses, and character in case the fins do pick him up.

You know how pissed off I will be if Dez Bryant ends up a Patriot or Jet?

OMG, Armando thinks we would trade with the Pats if Dez was on the board. I would sure like some of what he is smoking.


So perhaps the receiver-hungry Dolphins get a chance to pick Bryant. But perhaps the ever-conservative Dolphins don't really want to exercise that opportunity.
Trade!
If the Patriots want Bryant, well then, come and get him!

Randy Moss had more red flags than a bull fighters convention. That turned out ok for the Pats....

They can afford to trade up & a 2nd for DB.

wes welker makes this more plausible but if they were to trade their 2's for this guy, I would not mind at all. That means all these LB's will go somewhere else and maybe in our laps. I am not afraid of Bryant.

I would think that BB just sits right at there spot and wait for Tate or Benn.

The Pats won't trade from the 20th because they know they will probably get Demaryious Thomas with the 20th and Thomas will be the best WR a team could draft. So why give up any 2nds to move up for a WR??? I'd Keep the 2nds and draft Thomas. I sure Hope the Fins outsmart the Pats this year!

Sorry I am just not buying the Pats trading up. If the Patriots were ONE player away from being a SB contender then yeah I think it would make sense, but the Patriots have gotten old and fallen off and need help at many spots, especially on defense. It's not Belichick's style to bundle up picks to move up....if anything they will try to get more picks like they always do.

why you ask? Because they may want to go after someone else.....B Graham.

Say what you want, but if the Pats give us their 20 and their top 2nd rounder for our 12, I'd be pretty happy. Fact is that we have a ton of needs, and if we can end up with (for arguments sake) Tate, Allen, and Cody with our first 3 picks while the Pats end up with Bryant at 12, I'd say it's our victory.
