Even if NE can secure a first for Jimmy, I still don't think it's that great of a trade for them.
2014 was one of the deepest drafts in years, and they could have had Jarvis Landry or Preston Brown for 4 years instead of 3 years of a backup QB and a future first. Imagine either of those 2 on NE; that's scary.
Essentially you're on the clock with your 2nd rd pick in 2013 and a team calls you and say they'll give you their 2017 first, would you do that deal? NE would tell that GM to go f*ck themselves.
4-2; 2nd place overall, first in total points
