After the Patriots defense becoming worse as Brady's career progresses, Gronk possibly missing a few games due to surgeries, and having a severe down grade on their WR depth chart (bunch of no-names outside of Amendola), it's time to go for the throat! I am not expecting an AFC East crown THIS upcoming season, but our boys better damn well be. If these one year deals materialize and we see production out of all our free agents and give extensions (or viable replacements), I can see us taking it in 2014. Go 'Fins!Patriots coach Bill Belichick is notorious for wheeling and dealing on draft day. Since taking over as New England's coach in January 2000, Belichick has orchestrated 50 draft-day trades, including 25 since 2008.
However, Belichick may have a tough time working his magic during the 2013 NFL Draft because the Patriots don't have a lot of trade ammo. New England will head into this year's draft day with only five picks, the fewest in franchise history. The Patriots have one pick in the first (29th overall), second and third rounds and two picks in the seventh round.
