This may just be me, but I think the Patriots are seriously considering taking Louisville running back Michael Bush. Reportedly, he is 99% recovered from his leg injury and is ready to go into training camp at full strength. At 6’2″, 250 lbs, he is a bruiser that will compliment Maroney. I think he has the potential to be an All-Pro. That being said, there’s a good chance that he won’t be around when the Patriots select at 90th overall. The Falcons, who are coached by Bush’s former coach Bobby Petrino, might be looking to take Bush at #75. So here’s my trade idea, to move up to #74, the Bills current pick.
Patriots Send (To Buffalo):
2007 third round pick, 91st overall
2007 sixth round pick
2007 seventh round pick
2008 conditional draft pick (not better than fourth round)
Buffalo’s 2007 Third Round Draft pick, 74th overall. With that pick, the Patriots will select Michael Bush, RB, Louisville.
