I know, wrong forum, but we all hate them so much....

Patriots are trading WR Brandin Cooks and a 4th round pick to the Rams for the 23rd overall pick in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft and a 6th round pick, league sources tell ESPN.

Cooks will be a nice piece on the Rams.

Pats now have the 23rd, 31st, and 43rd overall picks. I imagine they will trade down from one if not two of those spots to load up even more.

Defense is gonna be insane at least on paper

I’d say they are def increasing their chances of winning a SB

Exactly.

With that defense, you could bring Trent Dilfer back from the dead and they'd have a shot.

Their current QB is damn good anyway.

The thought of Fraudlin trying to match wits with McVay is scary.

They have very sketchy edge rushers and Goff is still not really a clutch guy that can make plays in pressure games.

OBJ for drafts picks??? Not so sure the Pats can afford his next contract. People "nut" all over OBJ and to me, he hasn't really busted thru or won me over yet. But the money will be thrown at him.

I was thinking Mason Rodolph was the pick for the Pats now at 23. No more 1st round QB to the Steelers talk, is my guess.

I wouldn’t be so sure...Aviators was all over Lamar Jackson at the Louisville pro day...

This means we do not get one of our defensive players fall to us.

NE could take LVE.

NE could take Justin Reid.

That means LVE, Evans, Reid and Bates could all be off the board before we pick at 28.

But that is okay to me, I want a damn RB!!! :twisted:

One can only hope Evans is off the board.
All the better if the stiff goes to NE...




But I doubt B.B. makes that error.

I agree completely with you Jobus Rum!!

Evans to me look like a real small player. You look at the upper half of his body, he has narrow shoulders and short arms, his upper half looks like that of a cornerback. He is a shade under 6'2" and weighs 232 and I think he is maxed out, there is nowhere for him to add weight. Then you look at his 40 time or lack thereof, what is he hiding? I think he is hiding a slow 4.75-4.8 40. He did run a 4.36 short shuttle at the combine which is terrible, he did jump at the combine, and that 30 inches for the vertical is terrible too.

I see him as another Jarvis Jones type. A terrible athlete who had some production in college because of the scheme and talent around him. Just like with Jones, I saw highlight after highlight of Evans where he is coming up and making a big tackle or sack and he is literally untouched. Well, shit, maybe I could have played at 'Bama too if I could just run around untouched and never had to fight off a block.

I would not touch him in the first 3 rounds.

I'm not impressed at all with cooks and quite frankly don't understand all the hype for this guy. A first round selection for a guy who was essentially invisible last season in cheatland is a huge steal for the cheats. lambs are either stupid or desperate. Likely a little of both. JMO

Side Note: If your trading away your 65 receptions for 1000+ yard WR that you traded for just last season, what's really going on? Damaged Goods?

Last year proved to me that Sean McVay is a great coach. That thing of talking in Goff’s ear until they shut off the headset was great. In the postseason Goff was a significant reason they didn’t advance— just isn’t a guy to make clutch plays vs great defense. I think there will be a leveling off of Goff’s play this year, and he will continue to be a nice regular season player.

Pats tried to work a deal with him, it was going nowhere so they cut bait.
