I'll let you be the judge, my friend.
The Patriots traded their #1 pick, 23rd overall, to Baltimore for the Ravens' #1 pick, 26th overall, and 5th round pick (162nd overall).
The Pats then traded the two aforementioned picks acquired from the Ravens to Green Bay for the Packers' second-round pick (41st overall, used to select Darius Butler
) and two third-round selections (73rd overall, traded to Jacksonville, who selected Derek Cox
; and 83rd overall, used to select Brandon Tate
The Pats then traded the 73rd overall pick acquired from Green Bay to Jacksonville, for the Jaguars' 2nd round pick in 2010, and
their 7th round pick in the 2009 draft, #232 overall...which was used to select WR Julian Edelman.
To summarize, for their #1 draft pick, 23rd overall, the Pats ended up getting CB Darius Butler, WR Brandon Tate, WR Julian Edelman, and
Jacksonville's 2nd rounder in 2010!!
