Give the Patriots back there draft pick (the 5th rounder from Chad)

Assuming DeCastro, Richardon, and Kirkpatric are all off the board when we pick at #17, I say we make a deal with the Pats (who love to accumulate draft picks). We trade down and give them our #17 pick (1rst rounder), our #53 pick (2nd rounder) and also the 5th round pick that they gave to us to acquire Chad Johnson last year. In return, we will get there #27 pick and there 31rst pick, both are at the end of the first round.

The reason I'd not only be willing to trade down with Pats, but also give up an additional draft pick in order to do so are:

1. We actually have the additional picks to be able to do it, and more than likely one or two of our later round picks will not make the final roster cuts.

2. We have 3 glaring wholes (Guard, RB, & CB) and I feel we would easily be able to address all of our major needs with 3 picks (late) in the first round. This should help ensure we do not miss out on the players we are really targetting before one of the other teams who drafts early in 2nd round (with the same needs) can jump on these players.

3. Having 3 first round picks gives us way better odds that the players we targeted will be able to contribute right away.

My picks would be

Round 1

#21 - Stephon Gilmore CB

#27 - Doug Martin RB

#31- Kelechi Osemelle/Cordy Glenn Guard

Round 2

Traded to Pats

Round 3 - 7 - best players available
