Pats want Taylor. At any cost!

I heard a rumor that the Patriots were willing to give up some of those 10 or 11 draft picks to get Sean Taylor. What have you all heard?

According to ESPN Rumor Central, Detroit has a deal if Taylor is still on the board:
Detroit gets: Picks #21, #32, #113 and either #56 or #63.
New England gets: Picks #6 and #105.
Hard not to pull the trigger on that one when your team has as many holes as Detroit does.

There's a reason they're willing to give all of that up, he's worth that much, at least! I really think it's not that good of a deal for us because we won't get anyone near the calliber of Taylor with those picks.

I agree with Daseal. I want him in a Redskins uniform.

New England has a VERRRRY good eye too, when it comes to the draft. I hope we take notice of that

I thought the Skins didnt want that offer, so they offered Ty Law as well. Both of those could be rumors but its what I heard.

If Belichick sees something so special in this kidd to give up all that there is something special about him. Belicgick has a proven eye for talent on the deffensive side of the ball. Unles we get an offer like that there is no reason we shouldnt draft him!

why would we want to stick at the #5 spot to pick up ONE player, even if he is as good as reported, when we could get multiple good if not possibly pro-bowl players to fill the multiple holes we need filled? It's kinda like a boat with a few leaks, why only plug one leak when you can plug up several? I know Taylor has the potential to be a very good safety, but I'd rather have an all around strong team. It just seems like smart business and managing to me to make the team better at several spots rather than just one. That's a lot to be hoping for one player, a rookie on top of that, to be the saving grace of our defense. plus the contracts of the picks we'd draft in a trade for the #5 selection combined would probably be about the same, if not cheaper, than the one contract given to Taylor.

but the thing is we don't know he will be that good and I'm sorry but Taylor has no where near the physical presence that Lott had. Taylor is a decent tackler but he's not the kind of safety, from what I saw during his days at miami, as someone who put fear into those coming over the middle like Lott did. how many times have we seen a player be awesome in college and so-so in the NFL? I'd be willing to bet more starting safeties of the past and present weren't drafted in the first round and I honestly don't see safety as our weakest point right now. Greg Williams has a proven past of getting the most out of his secondary and I think that with Bowens and Ohalete being young players with talent, they can still be molded into better players under his coaching. Sure I may be putting too much faith into our current players and coaching staff ,but I still firmly believe that the possibility of upgrading 2 or 3 positions, atleast depthwise for the time being, is better for the team than upgrading one position. If we upgrade the d-line, wouldn't that also help out the secondary and LBs? I also believe the best non-skill position player in this draft is Jake Grove(who we could get at #32) and I know I'm not putting my trust in Raymer to stay healthy the entire year.

So I'm not saying I'm against drafting Taylor, I just see us trading the pick away to garner the picks New England is offering as the better overall choice for the team to make. When you boil it down its either draft one potential probowler or draft 2 or 3 players who could be potential probowlers as well. I'll take the odds going with drafting 3 high seeded players over one. The only time I would even begin to think about taking one probowler over 2 or 3 is if the one player was a revolutionary player at their position like LT or Vick.

ESPN Insider is reporting that the rumors of the Pats/Lions trade have exaggerated. Apparently, the one sided nature of the trade is unrealistic for the Pats to do. Maybe they aren't quite as crazy about Taylor as was thought...
