the biggest problem for this is NE wouldn't want our first round pick. They'd probably want to stay where they're at so switching picks with them for Cassel wouldn't be logical to the Patriots. Drafting high isn't as appealing to owners as it is to us fans. When teams draft late, they are still just as likely to pick up someone as good, or even better in some cases, than players drafted in the top 10. The biggest upside is they don't have to spend nearly as much money on those players. I think it would take more to get Cassel and I'd rather just pick up Mark Sanchez if we'd be trying to address QB with our first round pick.
