I wonder if he contacted Pioli and tried to move to 11.......

Patriots talk to Seahawks about trading up to 12

Posted by Michael David Smith on April 26, 2012, 1:47 PM EDT


Patriots coach Bill Belichick may be thinking about packaging his own first-round draft pick (No. 31) and the Saints’ pick (No. 27) to trade to the Seahawks to move up to No. 12.

Albert Breer of NFL Network reports that the Patriots have inquired with the Seahawks to see what it would take to move up to 12.

Moving way up doesn’t seem like the type of move Belichick likes to make, but that doesn’t mean he wouldn’t do it if he believes a player at 12 can make the kind of impact that the last player he drafted early in the first round, Jerod Mayo, made. One player Belichick might consider at 12 is Alabama safety Mark Barron.

The old NFL draft trade chart is somewhat outdated these days, but it does suggest that packaging No. 27 and No. 31 for No. 12 would be a fair trade. The chart gives the 12th pick a value of 1,200 points, the 27th pick a value of 680 points and the 31st pick a value of 600 points.

Take it and include Cassel as part of the deal.

The most recent mock I've seen on PFT had us taking Dont'a Hightower at 11.

:banghead: I think it was on there this morning but everyone is blowing so much smoke. That mock had a lot of surprises in the first round compared to many of the rumors floating about different players.

Belichick has historically always, always, ALWAYS moved back in round 1 if he's moving at all. The only time he moved up was by a slot or two. I remember going from 14 to 13 the year we took Ty Warren (2003 I think).

BUT, BUT, BUT, that was during the years of massively overpaying rookies. Now, with the fixed payment structure in the draft, he may have an altogether different view on moving up versus moving back.

Of course they are speculating that Belicheck is interested in Barron; however, we all know that NE doesn't show its hand to anyone. Barron sure is moving up the boards right now. Probably the most talked about player at the moment.

Pretty sure we had a 180+ post thread discussing this same possibility.

Oh, wait. We did. I started it.

Side note that the Patriots take the confidentiality of their discussions very seriously. Wouldn't be surprised if this deal fell apart, and the Pats didn't take the Seahawks phone calls for a year or whatever.

Just saying, they've done it before.
