Hate to jinx it, but so far I'm quite glad they didn't listen to me and try to move up.
Said it before but when you have a $6 million long snapper, you don’t let him go to waste.View: https://twitter.com/AdamSchefter/status/1652407082090393600
Patriots drafted Michigan St punter Bryce Baringer in round six and Maryland kicker Chad Ryland in round four, becoming the first team since the 2000 Raiders - who selected kicker Sebastian Janikowski and punter Shane Lechler - to pick a kicker and punter in the same draft.
So when the 2011 draft came around, the Patriots held the 193rd overall draft pick and the Eagles were sitting at 194th. The two teams decided to swap picks just for the heck of it, with Belichick laughing after the fact (at 10:07 in the video), "We talked to the Eagles, and we wanted to make the trade, they wanted to make it, we wanted to make it, so we made it. You good on that?"Didn’t they once swap picks for no consideration just to keep the streak going?
