    New England covets patrick willis and is looking to trade up to get him. With 49'ers, Bills, and Panthers all interested in him look for the patriots to trade up to 10 or ahead of us. This is a real possibility and I think the texans would jump on it.
    1A- Aarron Ross
    1B- Dwayne Bowe
    This would cure huge needs on both sides of the ball and allow the texans to draft OL in the 3rd. And we all know how good kubiak is at OL in the third.

    I wish.

    With NE's draft history I dont see it happening.

    No way they trade both their first round picks for our 10th pick.

    I would jump on that, and I like Bowe alot. I might go LT with my other pick, depending on who is there of course.

    I'd say yes in a hearbest, but I doubt NE would do that.

    according to the trade chart our pick is worth 1300 and theirs 1400. If they covet him and theirs no possible way to get him where their at I don't see how you can say that it's impossible.

    If that happens I hope they get Chris Houston and either Staley or Kalil. But, I don't think it will happen. JMHO!

    didn't they sign adalius thomas? i guess their other lb's are getting old though huh and pwillie would play mlb?

    I'm all for it but i wouldn't expect them to give up both of their 1sts this year. i know the points work out but they could get an instant starter with one of them. I would be expecting seattle's 1st, NE's 2nd, and like a 2nd next year. maybe more? i just dont see them giving up 2 1sts.

    i'd love patrick willis to play for a great team like NE. I'd also probably take the trade...IF we got both their 1sts i'd take Kalil with one of them. Meriweather with the other. or a CB like Ross.

    I don't think NE would give up two first round picks for the first overall pick much less the 10th one.

    The trade value chart isn't used in a lot of situations. It's good to have as a gauge to check and see if you're getting proper value (technically). Most of it just comes down to GMs talking it out.

    Willis is Belichick's kind of player. I'd love for a trade to happen.

    NE gets #10 & #107
    Houston gets #24 & #28

    #24 Houston/ Revis/ or Meriweather
    #28 Kalil

    #73 Rufus Alexander / Justin Durant
    #144 Rhema McKnight/ David Ball
    #183 Mario Henderson
    #218 Justin Medlock

    It makes sense for HOU to make the deal, but NE isn't giving up 2 1st rounders to move up for Willis unless we add our 3rd rounder in this deal. I don't think it's too likely to happen. I would like to see a trade down though.

    I see them using one first rounder but then using a combo of second rounders this year and next to move up.

    They would much rather draft two instant starters in round one and give up more iffy picks later then only one first rounder.

    I don't think they have a ton of holes to fill like us, so their later picks are more expendible. They want high probablity impact starters.
