Another trade down…

After taking Shane Vereen at 56, the Patriots opted to trade their final second-round pick to the Houston Texans for a third-round pick (No. 73) and fifth-round pick (No. 138).

New England has failed to address its biggest need – the pass rush – but Justin Houston is still sitting on the board.

With 3 third-rounders, Belichick needs to upgrade the front-seven.
