Patriots chat set for noon

Every Thursday on ESPNBoston.com, there is a Patriots chat in the early afternoon. Today's chat is scheduled to kick off at noon.

The Patriots continue their draft preparations, with coaches and scouts spanning the country evaluating talent. One question to consider today: How many draft picks might the Patriots trade for established players (assuming there is a CBA) or 2012 picks?

Tedy Bruschi, on the most recent ESPNBoston podcast, opined on the topic.

"My theory on the draft is that you really can't use all those picks," he said. "You have to trade some away, because if you use all those picks, now you're becoming too young."
