Barring any changes, the Patriots will make a draft pick during round 3 Friday night. While it is highly unlikely, this is what I hope happens instead.
Belichick should trade out of the 2017 draft completely. Roger would completely lose his mind. I mean, you punish a team by taking away their draft picks and benching their starting quarterback for the first 4 games of the season. First, they win the Super Bowl. Then they follow it up by not drafting anyone.
If the Patriots were to repeat as champs, Goodell would have to make a rule forcing teams to draft players at the draft. Fast forward to 2018 and picture all of the other GMs trying to trade away picks to be like Bill and the Patriots.
While the above scenario is highly unlikely, can we at least have them draft Jake Butt. While everyone who writes about the Patriots are begging the team to pick him because Gronk won't be able to contain himself and he's good. If we are going to draft him, can we please have Gronk do the honors.
All joking aside, besides needing to add some offensive linemen, the Patriots should also look to find a return specialist.
