The Patriots position for an “unprecedented deal” at No. 3

It may take More than flowers To get Robert Kraft to send the third overall pick to the Vikings.

Patriots prepare forAn unprecedented deal“Out of the third overall pick. That's the term used in a Sunday article from's Mike Reiss.

They want a “blockbuster” show, according to Reese. Otherwise, they will draft their own quarterback at that spot.

It's hard not to look at it as a puff. No one knows if any of the top prospects will become a franchise quarterback. No one knows where the best midfielders in football will come from.

The Patriots know that better than any other team. They got Tom Brady with the 199th pick.

It's about the Patriots trying to take advantage of someone's desperation, especially since the Vikings seem particularly desperate. that's good. But it's also good to call it like it is.

If the Patriots were so intent on grabbing the best quarterback on the board after the Bears and Chiefs (or whoever trades up to No. 2) take their player, they wouldn't even accept a trade. That's what the Bengals did in 2020, turning down every offer from the Dolphins and never hesitating to accept Joe Burrow.

This time, the Patriots are sure to engage in careful analysis of what they expect from the player they select third and what they could get with picks and/or players offered by another team.

The two teams are negotiating. The team that wants to advance makes its best offer. The Patriots are making an honest decision on whether they are better off using the pick or trading it.

The rest of it is gibberish. The Patriots didn't win six Super Bowls by threatening. They win by being smart, analytical and objective.

That's how they will be again. Otherwise, they would likely miss an opportunity to improve their team by getting more tickets to the lottery that is the NFL Draft.
