2013 NFL Draft Open Thread: Will the Patriots Trade Down?

After adding players like former CFL star Armond Armstead, do the Patriots have a good enough roster to avoid trading down?

Depending on if the Steelers match the offer-sheet signed by receiver Emmanuel Sanders, which it sounds like is still a possibility, the Patriots will either have just two or three picks before the seventh round of the draft.

While the Patriots have had success finding talent that late – Julian Edelman and Alfonzo Dennard come immediately to mind – you have to wonder if Bill Belichick will trade down to fill in the gap with picks in the middle rounds.

However, when everybody thinks they have the Patriots intentions figured out, they always seem to surprise.

Patriots Super Bowl 48

Three rings will have to be enough for this year.

The Patriots won’t be winning Super Bowl 47. Colin Kaepernick has the last chance to stop Ray Lewis from retiring a champion and I assume many New England fans will may swing towards the NFC side of the action while they aren’t dousing their disappointment in nacho cheese and assorted beverages.

Even though they aren’t in New Orleans again this week, according to most bookmakers, the Patriots are already the odds-on favorite to win next year’s Super Bowl 48.

What do you think of the Patriots’ chances in 2013?
