Schefter: Patriots & trading back

ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter passed along a list of teams who have expressed some level of interest in trading back, and it's no surprise that the Patriots are on it.

As previously noted, a big part of Thursday night for the Patriots, with pick No. 29, is seeing what unfolds before them before making a move. It's much like a football game -- you go in with a plan, but adjustments are always made along the way.

One point made by Patriots director of player personnel Nick Caserio over the past week was how last year's trade with the Minnesota Vikings came together on the late side. While there might have been preliminary discussions, it didn't really heat up until closer to the team's pick at 29 when it was clear the player of interest was still available.

It looks like a similar scenario this year.
