As was the case a year ago, the Patriots have four picks in the first two rounds. Will they trade up, trade down, trade out or make their selection in the first round?
Trade up.– Andy Hart
The instinct is to say they'll trade down but I'll go against that and say they'll keep their pick at 22. – Paul Perillo
The Patriots will trade out of the first round. The players they covet won't be there at 22, leaving them no choice but to seek value and trade out of the first round. – Erik Scalavino
Trade up. History says they're just as likely to trade up as trade out. -- Fred Kirsch
