I don't get giving up a 2nd rounder for Wes Welker. He is a guy who is a fit w/ the Pats & can improve, but a 2nd rounder?

This just further shows the Pats as one of the NFL's oldest teams.

I think you're underrating Welker a bit there, 85. From day one that Patriots are getting one of the league's best #3 receivers, who could potentially become a very good #2 for them as they continue to develop their receiving core from the ground up. Picture Brandon Stokley, except at 26 years old, no durability concerns, and the ability to contribute as a return man on special teams.

That's a pricey contract, don't get me wrong, but the Patriots aren't exactly getting hosed here.

Welker is underrated, but a 2nd round pick isn't cheap. Might work out for both sides.

The Pats signed Sammy Morris? Shoot, I was hoping the Colts would give him a look.

Helps and hurts both teams....

Patriots get a guy that seems to be progressing as a WR very well and with Brady throwing the ball instead of Harrington/Lemon/Culpepper....we could see how good he really he is. But is he worth a 2nd rounder?

Dolphins gain a 2nd round pick which should enable them to have a solid day one or even trade up a few spots if Branch is available and still have 3 day one picks. But losing guys like Welker don't seem like a big deal in March, but during the season when you need jack of all trades player is when it can hurt. That is why I am glad the Giants locked up Tyree for 5 years.



This just strengthens my point that the teams that know how to draft.....know that this class is weak.

I'm sad to see Morris go though. I really hope Ricky gets back into the league or we bring in Chris Brown or someone. He was a very good all around player.

I doubt Ricky comes back, he reportedly been having alot of fun in Toronto. And he did rank up the yards once he got used to the game. I fully expect him to stay in the CFL.

He has already filed paper work to get back to the NFL. It's not his choice any way.

its more like a 3rd round pick, #60 is way down at the bottom of round 2. Its not like its a high 2nd rounder that you could snag a 1st round player that falls out of the first round with.

it still the fact though that it's a day 1 pick for player that hasn't quite proven himself yet

Wes Welker is a beast and an incredibly hard worker who's motor never stops. Good deal for both teams.

yeah its probably a little too high for welker, but the pats have 2 first round picks so they can afford it

you guys still think theyll draft a WR in round 1?

you can get a better reciever with a 2nd rounder than wes welker.They would be better of signing a FA or packaging that second rounder along with one of their firsts to get a top Wr in this draft
