Every year, I make a prediction based on a player I think the Patriots could use.
Every year, it involves the Patriots using multiple chips to trade up.
It never happens because BB almost invariably trades back. And certainly he doesn't trade up high. But consider this scenario...
The draft starts
MIN Maurice Claiborne
CLE Trent Richardson
The Patriots trade both of their firsts and their first second with Tampa to move up to Number 5 overall
Matt Kalil OT USC
