[QUOTE]LOL, yeah right. Just what BB always does trade up, costing him more $$$$ in contracts.

Please do your homework before mocking people who know more than you.
BB traded back in recent drafts to avoid paying through the nose, especially without knowing the paremeters of the new CBA.
He traded back for Mayo. He waited on McCourty. It all matters, even if it seems like a small thing. That's his leverage with agents who are using a trade up against BB when it comes time to hammer out a contract, too.
Our weak minded Jets trolls are exhibit A as to understanding that contracts matter. But, now with the new CBA, trading up makes more sense, but with more cost in draft picks/compensation.
The rookie cap means the 1st rd picks are more valuable than before BUT the players will also be cheaper.
NE would likely need to part with a 2nd rounder alongside Hoyer and 27 to get to 11, but it might be worth it for a player like Barron.
It would make sense more than ever to trade up now VS before, so don't mock people who get this when you don't. Word on the street is, the Pats are not enamored with this draft class which would mean trading up and then trading out into next year's draft, but getting the players they covet.
If you really covet a Barron, then why not? It's slam dunk pick and you still have your 2nd rounder for someone you covet in Round 2.
